Thanks everyone!

I've had a rather lonely evening, as my other half is on a business trip to Sweden, so I've busied myself with creating.

For your delectation: The Hanged One and The High Priest, plus all of todays cards together.

Many Blessings,

Em xx

P.S. Harleyquinn- The circular oracle deck will still happen, but needs a lot of planning and research. It's currently next in line after this and the Middle earth tarot!

Beautiful artwork. You can visibly see just how much heart you are putting into this deck. You have a true gift!

The queue is getting quite long, especially if you intend to hand-make however many decks, so if I have any hope of ever personally seeing these gorgeous cards then I'd better hop on the wagon while I can! Do you think maybe I could make your intended list?

Hi, Em. You've been busy! What is the significance of the image in the High Priest card, if I may ask? What was your inspiration for the tree?

Very awesome idea. It's one of those ideas where hundreds of other people are going "Darn, I wish I had thought of that!" It makes perfect sense.


Great work. I'd definitely love a copy if you were to publish it.


You'll be a famous tarot artist and we'll all say, "I knew her when! I saw the cards as they were done!"

I wondered if someone would ask me that! The High Priest or Hierophant, to me represents tradition, ancient wisdom, and a certain 'Fixed' nature. An ancient tree, which has stood for hundreds of years, seemingly unmoving, but always growing, seemed to me a perfect de-personalsied representation of this cards energies. There is much to be learned from trees! I also had in mind the Tree of Life of the Qabbalah, another system which the Hierophant would relate to- wise yet rigid, fixed yet subtly shifting.

Does that make sense?

Blessings,

Em xx

Certainly! I think I'll be able to stand making about a hundred- at this rate, i won't have to advertise them at all! Thank you so much

Blessings,

Hi Em, I am very excited about this deck. So perfect. I am sorry if you already mentioned this, but are you planning on doing the minors or is this going to be a majors only deck?

Hi Mimers! I am so glad you like it! Indeed, I will be doing the minors as well. I have already done the 'two's, you can see them on this page: http://www.tarotforum.net/showthread...6&page=7&pp=10

Many Blessings,

Em x
