Art of Tarot 6

This post was written by Barbara Moore

In this series, we are taking the time to smell the roses, which for tarot lovers often means taking the time to really appreciate a single image of tarot art.

Today we look at the 8 of Spring from the Victorian Fairy Tarot by Lunaea Weatherstone and Gary Lipponcott. You can see more HERE.
The 8 of Wands can be a boring card, usually with just 8 sticks flying across the space of the image. These archers, though, manage to capture the meaning and express it even better, I think, than the traditional image. They carefully line themselves up, taking aim. Once they release the arrow, there is little that can change its course. Besides that, I just love the card, the squirrel watching, the jaunty feathers in their caps, the golden glow of a perfect day.
