The Radical, 600-Year Evolution of Tarot Card Art

What would Antoine Court de Gébelin think of the Happy Squirrel?

De Gébelin was a Protestant minister born in the 18th century. He authored the multi-volume tome Le Monde primitif, which insisted that the tarot deck contained secrets of the ancient Egyptians, whose priests had distilled their occult wisdom into the cards’ illustrations, imbuing them with great mystical power. Before that point, tarot was primarily a card game—meant for fun, not prophecy.

It was a bold and somewhat absurd assertion, given that de Gébelin could not read Egyptian hieroglyphics (no one could at the time, since they weren’t deciphered until the 19th century). Despite a total lack of historical evidence to back his claim, the theory stuck: Tarot decks, once a novelty, became popular tools for divination after the publication of de Gébelin’s book.

Which brings us back to the Happy Squirrel, a relatively recent addition to the tarot’s Major Arcana, and one whose provenance is less hazy: it originated on season six of The Simpsons. Lisa visits a fortune teller who is unconcerned when Lisa picks Death, but gasps in horror when the next card she draws is the Happy Squirrel. (When Lisa asks if the fuzzy rodent is a bad sign, the fortune teller demurs, saying that “the cards are vague and mysterious.”) Although it began as a cartoon joke, the Happy Squirrel card has made its way into over a dozen commercially available tarot decks.

So what would de Gébelin’s reaction be? The answer depends on whether tarot is a collection of timeless, mystical wisdom—or a flexible framework that has endured by changing with the times. Although tarot imagery employs supposedly universal archetypes, new decks are constantly being invented, and old decks altered. The art of tarot cards can never fully transcend its milieu. Which begs a second question: How do the cards’ art and design relate to the social changes, technological advances, and aesthetic sensibilities of their particular eras?

A Wealthy Family’s Trick-Taking Game

Despite their aura of mystery, medieval tarot cards were not used for divination, and were probably not created by ancient Egyptian magicians. The earliest surviving tarot decks—now preserved in various museum collections—are Italian, and were commissioned by wealthy patrons, the same way one might have hired an artist to paint a portrait or illuminated prayerbook.

The Visconti-Sforza Tarot is a collection of decks, none complete, commissioned by the Visconti and Sforza families from the workshop of Milanese court painter Bonifacio Bembo. Cards such as Death, who rides a horse and swings a giant scythe like a player in the world’s most high-stakes polo match, will seem familiar to contemporary enthusiasts. So will the Pope, who sits on a golden throne; and the Lovers, who hold hands beneath a string of heraldic flags. Rather than looking to these cards for mystic guidance, the Visconti and Sforza families would have used them to play a trick-taking card game similar to modern-day Bridge. (Although it’s unlikely—given the good condition of the decks—that they were ever handled with much frequency).

The cards each have intricately tooled gold backgrounds that glow like the luxury items that they were. Bembo is believed to have included portraits of the families in many of the cards, as well as adding the Visconti family motto here and there for good measure. Akin to the work of Fra Angelico and other early-Renaissance artists, the cards are opulent but pictorially flat, although the bodies appear in naturalistic perspective and their clothing billows around them, suggesting volume and form.

The 18th-Century Conver Classic

  • Nicolas Conver, Tarot card from Tarot de Marseille, ca. 1760. Via Wikimedia Commons.

Produced in 1760, French engraver Nicolas Conver’s deck of delicate woodcuts, the Tarot de Marseille, is the template on which many contemporary decks are based. Like the Visconti-Sforza Tarot, the deck’s design likely originated in 15th-century Italy before traveling north to France. It’s a favorite of many tarot enthusiasts, most notably the cult film director Alejandro Jodorowsky, who designed his own deck based on the style. While the Conver deck wasn’t the first to be called the Tarot de Marseille, it’s highly prized by collectors for its delicate color palette of sky blues and minty greens. The graphic black outlines and blunt shading of the prints give the cards a simple and rough-hewn appearance, which adds to the ambience of ancient wisdom. The popularity of the tarot grew due to advances in printing technology and via the writings of 19th-century French occultists such as Éliphas Lévi and Etteilla, which popularized the use of tarot as a method of fortune-telling and assigned additional divinatory meaning to the cards.

The New Mystics

  • Pamela Colman Smith, Queen of Cups, c. 1937. Courtesy of the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University.

The Rider-Waite Smith deck, which debuted in 1909, remains the most recognizable and popular today. Designed by artist Pamela Colman Smith under the direction of the mystic A.E. Waite, it was the first to be mass-produced in English, and was intended for divination rather than gameplay. Smith and Waite were both active members of the Order of the Golden Dawn, a secretive organization devoted to the exploration of the paranormal and occult (allegedly Bram Stoker, Aleister Crowley, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were also members).

In addition to Smith’s occult bonafides, she was also an accomplished artist, championed by Alfred Stieglitz, who collected her work and showed it at his gallery. Smith created fully-realized illustrations of all 78 cards that made the deck a treasure-trove for cartomancers, who now had a much richer store of images to work with. (Previously, only the 22 Major Arcana cards such as the Fool, the Magician, and the Lovers had been elaborately illustrated—traditionally, the Minor Arcana cards, which are roughly analogous to the suits in a deck of modern playing cards, were not.) The Major Arcana were based on the Tarot de Marseille drawings, but rendered in an illustrative Art Nouveau style rich with patterns. Even the Fool looks debonaire; he carelessly approaches the cliff, a feather in his cap and a blooming rose in his elegant fingers, wearing a floral tunic that looks straight out of William Morris’s workshop.

An Occultist’s Pure Geometry

The Thoth deck, named for the Ibis-faced Egyptian god more commonly known as Horus, was painted by the artist Frieda Harris based on direction from the infamous occultist-about-town Aleister Crowley. Completed in the early 1940s, but not widely available until 1969, it features Art Decoborders resembling the pattern of a butterfly wing.

The deck is an aesthetic departure from the Rider-Waite’s homey Arts and Crafts aesthetic. Shaped by Harris’s interest in pure geometry, the cards are reminiscent of the work of Swedish painter Hilma af Klint (a visionary artist who shared Harris’s interest in spiritualism and the writings of Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner, both popular subjects of study among the middle and upper classes in the early 20th century). Harris’s shaded orbs and compass-inscribed curves that fill the background of each card bear more than a passing resemblance to Klint’s highly-saturated geometries. Klint, considered by some to be Europe’s first abstract painter, believed that her luminous compositions were the created under the influence of spirits. (The same could easily be said of Harris because she was taking direction from Crowley, who was believed to be a medium, able to channel ancient and magical forces.)

It’s no coincidence that Klint’s paintings and Harris’s Thoth illustrations were shown in the same pavilion at the 2013 Venice Biennale, which was intended to amplify voices that had previously been excluded and “cover 100 years of dreams and visions,” according to curator Massimiliano Gioni.

Sex & Self-Help, ’70s Style

  • Bill Greer and Lloyd Morgan, card from Morgan-Greer Tarot, 1979.

Created by the artist Bill Greer under the direction of Lloyd Morgan, the Morgan-Greer deck is, like the 1970s themselves, both opulent and optimistic. The Magician sports a mustache that would make Tom Selleck blush, and the naked and embracing Lovers would fit right in with the hirsute and curvaceous illustrations in the original 1972 edition of The Joy of Sex.

The ‘70s enthusiasm for all things New Age created a renewed interest in tarot as a tool for self-discovery, and the Morgan Greer deck was there to greet it. The cards’ colors are lush and the lines are fluid. Greer chose to crop his figures tightly and removed the borders, allowing the illustrations to extend to the edges. The effect is fresh and personal. Formally, the Morgan-Greer illustrations have more in common with Jefferson Starship’s Spitfire (1976) album cover than with contemporary painting of the same period—the pendulum had swung away from figuration and would take a few years longer to swing back—but it’s possible to find a resonance between this deck’s art and a work like Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party (1979), with its powerful goddess and blooming flowers. Greer’s strong women and frank sexuality make the deck very much of its time.

which is a nice sensuous energy. You will feel good about being in your body, the earth plane and enjoying reveling in the 5 senses, the palpable beauty.
 
Moon inconjuncts JUPITER in Libra
You must move some mountains to get social justice. Get off your couch and use that stubbornness wisely.
 
Moon sextiles Chiron
Lending an easy aspect to feel the wounds, pain, and vulnerability that we carry in our bodies. If we listen to the bodies wisdom it will reveal what we should and shouldn’t be doing.
 
Moon inconjuncts SATURN in SAGITTARIUS
The body and the spirit are going in two different directions. The spirit wants to soar off into new adventures. The practical emotional mood is kinda lazy. It takes effort and practical consistency to follow those dreams.
 
INSPIRATIONAL DAILY CARD
Queen of Cups Tarot Tara Greene
“Queen of CUPS” by Noreen Mungo
 
The Queen of Cups is the most feminine card in the deck. Like the I Ching Hexagram # 2 The Receptive. This is a card of the utmost sensitivity and flow. It is all water, the water of water.
It is related to the sign of Cancer and the 4th house. The card of the day says. Be receptive, be open, listen to your intuition and your subtle feelings. You don’t have to do anything, wait. Feel.
This card depicts the WOMB itself, where we all originated. Woman as womb, as shelter, as home, as safe place, space. It is a card of retreat. It represents emotional safety and security.
Our need for it, and our ability to be it. 
Listen to the ocean’s roar, and the tide’s pulling in and out. The card is related to the moon. We could be in a pregnant state. Listen, be aware. REFLECT. 
REFLECT. 
I have been feeling the symbols whisper to me the last few days. Have you heard them too? I can feel the mystic calling. Venus Retrograde too.

Embrace the soul, romance the body

This is a Friday the 13th to break the superstitious mold. It’s a very good positive non-spooky Friday the 13th for a number of reasons. No fearing black cats crossing your path.
It’s a LEO Moon which means passionate, fiery, heart-felt, proud and strong-willed, nobody’s gonna rain on my parade.. 
The LEO Moon is active squaring Mercury, inconjuncting Pluto, trining URANUS squaring the SUN and inconjuncting Chiron in Pisces. All of which means a headstrong miscommunications, divided loyalties, secret cabals, escaping to a higher consciousness for some breathing space, battling with superiors and non wanting to admit how much it hurts.  
The BIG GEM that revitalizes this day is the  Venus in #Taurus TRINES PLUTO in CAPRICORN @ 17+ degrees.
It’s all about sensual beauty, roses, the most feminine of all symbols enhances the Soul’s depths of desire in the world.
Give yourself permission to be very sensuous, smell the roses, eat the roses, make love with roses, that will satisfy the Goddess of Love.
Roses, Venus, Tara Greene psychic
And as for Pluto, Lord of the soul and the Unconscious, allow your body and soul to be one. Embracing your shadow is a safe way, in a way of relationship with the anima, Venus and feed your soul beauty and love as those as the greatest riches.
Let’s examine the symbols for 18 degrees Taurus for VENUS by John Sandbach  I will adapt them. 

Taurus 18. Gently, a man caresses a thorn tree. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

You have a delicacy of approach to life that helps you to deal with difficult and/or sensitive situations. This is a real gift. You are a peacemaker who understands instinctively the innate needs of people and situations. Your energy can encourage people to let down their defenses so that they are able to share more fully.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman with hundreds of breasts.”

Diana/Artemis of Ephesus, Tara Greene
This is the symbol of Diana of Ephesus.

It would seem that there is an extreme divergence between this Chandra symbol and its accompanying Omega Symbol, but the fact is that breasts are for nurturing, and thorns are for defense, and the sign Cancer is about both nurturing and defense.

This degree has faith in the abundance of the universe, and knows that all needs can and will be met as soon as the belief in the illusion of poverty and lack are let go of. And even when the self chooses to experience lack, it is to induce itself to find what is needed within, and hence a means of coming to a realization of personal power and completeness.

Azoth Symbol: Space aliens inviting some humans to come and see their world. Real Venusians.

Oracle

It might be that none of the thorns on this tree will ever hurt anything. Molecules of air and photons of light enjoy playing around the sharp tips, and the points seem to create a coolness and alertness in the air, and at dusk a faint glow.

A man has stopped to feel with his thumb and forefinger the shaft of a thorn. It’s smooth, and faintly red, but in the dusk mostly black. As he slides his fingers down the shaft of the thorn he feels, all over his body the tree caressing him back, with the same gentle smoothness.

The SYMBOL for PLUTO at 18 degrees Capricorn
Capricorn 18. A forgotten painting stored in a vault. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

What is the Vault? Where is it?

( Spiritual Cleansing, Endings and Rebirth)

This degree is inherently patient and knows that it may take a long time before its gifts are appreciated. Its also aware that when people are exposed to something again and again over a long period they can begin to take that thing for granted, and so sometimes its best to hold back what one has to offer until the time is right to bring it forth.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A black leopard with green eyes.”

black panther/leopard Tara Greene, animal spirit
I have been seeing black leopards lately. They are one of my power animals. 

The painting is stored in the dark, the leopard is a creature of the dark. Green is the color of emeralds, the gem of Mercury, the planet of communication. The artist’s painting was painted to communicate something, but now it is not doing that – it dwells in the dark, the Underworld, Hades. Until it can communicate once again – open its eyes to the light, and reaffirm its power, which is like that of the leopard’s.

Sometimes when something is hidden it is a good thing – later, when it is re-revealed we may see it with fresh eyes. This degree knows the power of waiting for the right time to act, the right time to bring forth its ideas. It uses the power of darkness and silence to enhance what is eventually and finally communicated.

Pleiadian Symbol: A glorious dragon of many colors embroidered onto a flag.

Seed degree: 4 Scorpio 4. An albino woman unaffected by the rays of the sun. (Omega Symbol). When we cease to allow the obvious to overpower our consciousness we become aware of hidden treasures everywhere.

A loud roar as a tornado approaches. (Chandra Symbol). The intensity and power of overpowering thought forms give rise to potent desires and a deep, burning desire to communicate and connect.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 24.An empty perfume bottle, the scent completely gone. (Omega Symbol). What has been lost is come to be seen as something that may be translated into the present via the imagination, or completely let go of to make way for whatever new is to come.

Venus will Trine the North Node exactly on May 15 @ 19+ degrees of TAURUS/VIRGO creating a GRAND EARTH TRINE with PLUTO all weekend.
This is very very rich, soulful, powerful aspect. If you do  have planets closely conjunct to these degrees  {15-21} this is like the pot of Gold at the end of the Rainbow. Realise you already have the gold.
MANTRA You are the manifestation of the soul, and of love. REPEAT

Saturn Neptune square,Visionary arts

The upcoming MAJOR ASPECT of 2016 is the SATURN in SAGITTARIUS square to NEPTUNE in PISCES is exact on June 17th with Saturn still Retrograde @ 12+ degrees. Neptune is the Source of all creation and Saturn births spirit into form.  Both of these planets have many aspects to each of them. I will drip feed you tidbits about the various meanings and nuances of these two planets of hard-core reality and the dreamtime. 

Neptune in Pisces rules the artist, the spiritual guide, the creative energy which all artists channel, fine artists, musicians, or writers. If the creative person thinks it is their ego who is creating, then they are not truly connected to the source.  An artist who becomes Neptune’s channel, his hollow reed, or painting tool, is a visionary. These are the ones who taps into the collective dreamtime unconscious of their times and whose vision is always ahead of their times.

visionary arts Napoleon Brousseau Toronto

The aptly titled Neptunian ” Memory Fog ” Oil on Canvas, 36 x 32 in., April 27th, 2015

Saturn is the mature artists, the one who is not the flash in the pan, brash young man but the mature artist who has been seasoned from doing his daily work for many, many years and who hasn’t given up their vision or dream and who has wisdom gained from experience.

For your Saturn square Neptune viewing pleasure here is a sampling of some of Napoleon { yes it’s his real name} Brousseau’s recent series of paintings. Napoleon has been showing his art works, installations, sculptures, paintings drawings, writing and digital art projects Internationally for over 40 years.

Napoleon is represented by the Angell Gallery in Toronto.  http://www.angellgallery.com/artists.

Sensual Moon, romantic Sunday

The Moon enters Taurus Jan 16-19.

Taurus Moon, Tara Greene astrology

This is the most sensual time of the month. This is the time to slow down and smell the roses, and Do PAMPER yourself and your beloveds. Awaken your senses with aromatherapy oils and incense. Give and receive massages or simply be more touchy in the positive sense. Taurus the Bull is an ancient constellation. In Hinduism Shiva rides a sacred white Bull called Nandi. 

The Symbol of Taurus is the Major Arcana of The POPE #5 of Hierophant or High Priest 

The Hierophant, the POPE, Tara Greene

Taurus, the 2nd sign  is ruled by planet Venus, so all things of beauty, art, romance, music, flowers, fashion, dance, jewellery, pottery especially, landscaping, and money are all attributes of Taurus. 

The Mythological Minotaur was a man with a bull ‘s head and tail { or a man’s head and bull body like a Centaur. The Minotaur, was locked inside a  labyrinth in Knossos Crete to contain him. His original name in Creten, was Asterion, which means the stars. So the name relates to the constellation of Taurus the Bull. 

Taurus relates to our very earthy animal side, which we must honor but also contain. Many of us are so disconnected from our bodies so much these days from sitting in front of computers ,texting and in our heads all day that we need to learn to listen to and use  all of our 6 senses. It takes practice and attention.

It’s a strongly bullish Sunday. Yes I know the stock markets wish it was bullish too.

Moon opposes Mars in Scorpio; stubborness comes to a head. 

Bull Moon sextiles Neptune- easy to be romantic

 and is inconjunct to Saturn in the evening- limitations on travelling. 

DO: Take a walk in nature, meditate on your sensual beauty and enjoy cooking, creating, dancing or singing. Taurus rules the throat. Have a slow day, where you eat, walk, and do things ploddingly. 

If you aren’t usually a stubborn person practice being so. 

Venus Taurus’ ruler squares Jupiter in Virgo a harmonious earth element @ 9:10 pm PST/ Jan 18 @ 12;10 am EST.

TAURUS RITUAL

Work with your root chakra and your throat chakras. Both of these are tied to power. Create an alter with flowers, sweets, earth, crystals, incense.

Taurus metal is COPPER sacred to Venus, use pennies to offer to Venus. 

Crystals: emerald, Rose quartz, carnelian, selenite, cuprite, red jasper, Turquoise. 

Put on some sensual belly dancing music or whatever turns you on and do a dance for Venus and Taurus energy. 

There are three earth trines and one water trine on  Monday.

EL PAMPERO- Gato Barbieri 1971  

 

Non-duality. Moon in Gemini, inspiration

I didn’t know what to write about today. I was at a Corporate Event yesterday in Niagara Falls Canada. The company was one I had read at a year ago. I was delivering tea leaf readings this year and had read Tarot cards last year.  A guest at the event came up to me and sat down and she said “Oh I am so happy to see you again.  I have to tell you that  you saved my life. Last year you read the cards for me and in the reading you told me to check out a problem in my breast.” She said she went to the doctor to check on her health because I had channelled this information  and even though she had no symptoms. Turns out the doctor found a tiny lump and they did a biopsy which was pre-cancerous and the doctor said it was good that they’d found this so soon. She is watching this every six months she gets her breast checked up. I felt so happy to hear this. It made me know that I am truly walking my soul’s path. I don’t always speak of health issues to clients especially at corporate events but she must have asked this. And one way or another trusting my higher self enabled me to say what I felt and saw and help her and I am so grateful for that. I do still have to state that my readings are for entertainment only and it is up to the client to do with it what they want. 

The Moon is in Gemini and which at its core is the mind, the apparent duality that we perceive.  I will briefly spec out the planets but really watch this Video below. 

Moon opposes Saturn in Sagittarius sign of truth, justice and inspiration.

Moon and Sun are incompatible today, Scorpio Sun and Gemini’s lite energy do not connect.

Go deeper, this is the time of the year of Death. 

Moon squares Neptune in Pisces

Dream a little, dream both sides, see from a new perspective. 

Moon is also inconjunct to Pluto in Capricorn

You can talk all you want but corporate 1% ain’t paying any attention.
