The Solipsist Tarot
Down to the wire now! Two cards left. Anybody else as stoked to see these finished as I am?!
Once these are with the printers, I’m going to take a break until the New Year before starting on the Minors. If I take them one suit at a time, it sounds infinitesimally more doable and much less of a scary, daunting task!
At every beginning there stands the fool, starting over from scratch, giving things another whirl. In the end, it doesn’t matter what happens, or where the journey ends: the experiences, new opportunites and perspectives are what matter the most. It’s about making stories and living them, taking the long way around and enjoying the undertaking.
Getting what we want isn’t always easy. Sometimes the going gets stalled, but makes for a great opportunity to assess all past, present and future obstacles before continuing on to the last leg of the journey.
Be your own light, follow your own standard and eventually things will fall into place, as they were meant to.
The beginning, the end, and the naked truth: just like birthdays, they cycle endlessly and come back ’round like clockwork. There is never an end without a new start, never a beginning without a finish.
This set was by far one of the most personal, insofar as all 4 cards are applicable to my life right this moment. The Fool getting in her Chariot, being her own Sun and starting a new World cycle. I’m really excited for what the future is looking like, and the new people and opportunites it’s brought. The past month has been one of renewal and new beginnings. I’ve met someone who provides me with boundless inspiration (whether he likes it or not), grown a year older, visited a new-to-me city, and found a few new avenues to channel my creative efforts into.
Next up, I will be finishing painting the Devil and the Magician, digitising all of the Major Arcana cards, and designing a pattern for the back of the cards. Until then!
