30 Day Tarot Challenge | Day 7
Question 7: What is my favourite card (both in terms of the decks artwork and divination meaning)
Ooooh this is a tricky one! How can you select a favourite card from the 78 available? And then how can I pick one image from the hundreds of decks out there?!
Initially, I was going to say that it must be Death that is my favourite card, because when I’m buying a new deck, Death is one of the cards that I go straight to, to see how the artist has rendered it. If Death appeals to me, then the chances are all the other ones are looking good too!
I have been very greatly enamoured with the DruidCraft Tarot since I first met it in Glastonbury….and also Alexander Daniloff’s Tarot…. but as far as artwork that I loved so much that I wanted to hang it on my wall, it had to be The Archer from The Wildwood Tarot, painted by Will Worthington.
I loved the image so much that I begged Will Worthington to sell me the painting! Which he did! The Archer was delivered to me at TABI’s Tarot Conference a couple of years ago in Birmingham where Will Worthington had agreed to be interviewed by me, and I unwrapped it with shaking hands and a thudding heart. Mr W makes these magnificent Arts & Crafts frames for his work too – isn’t it stunning?
Words can’t express how much I loved her when I saw her – and still do, The Archer hangs where she can regularly remind me to focus all my strength on my target, just as she does. Even when I am lying on the sofa with a Crunchie and a cup of tea I know that she’s willing me to Get OFF my arse and DO something!
I am also deeply besotted by Igraine in the Camelot Oracle, also painted by Will Worthington.
Like I said in another post….*creepy Stephen King voice* I’m his biggest fan 😀
As far as having a favourite with regard to divinatory meaning – I think that it might be 3 of Cups and Celebration – what’s not to like?! But what I REALLY like is a card that you can have a lot of discussion about, like Death or The Tower. Not a barrel of laughs, but something meaty to talk about.
So, what about YOU? Tell me what your favourite cards are (artwork and divinatory meaning)
The Tarot’s Court Cards are my specialist area. They talk to me.
Not LITERALLY though ….
