The surrealist Tarot deck of Leonora Carrington has gorgeous imagery based on her paintings. I need this deck. I’ve always loved surrealism and have been a strong proponent of women artists.
I wanted to be an artist since I was 9 years old. I told my mother that it was what I was going to be when I grew up. There was only Georgia O’Keefe that I knew of as a child who was a famous living woman artist and I loved her paintings. I went to Art College and specialized in Experimental Arts. I got involved in Feminist Art and found out there were many women artists since the Renaissance who have been suppressed and ignored.

Here is Leonora Carrington’s Astrology Chart.
An independent Aries SUN on MC of fame and Venus and Mars conjunct in Aries she was whole and complete within herself and Mercury in Aries too. Very firey.
LEO RISING with NEPTUNE sign of artists at 2 degrees in the 12th H of the unconscious, dreams, the underworld. It’s a very surreal resource.
Moon in Libra sign of the artist at 3 degrees is opposite to Mars and Venus too. Strong T-square of Moon-Mars to Pluto in CANCER at 2 degrees. That’s a lot of power
JUPITER in Sensuous artistic TAURUS in the 19th house of career trine her North Node in Capricorn in the 6th House of work. Saturn in the 12th House in CANCER inconjunct her Uranus in AQUARIUS. There were some issues with her father and her family as she was such an independent woman, She always felt like an outsider.
She was very smart and cerebral too with Juno in her 6th house of work in AQUARIUS.
CHIRON in PISCES at 27 degrees in her 8th house of inheritance, sex, power, control, secrets is trine Saturn in Cancer. She must have had some deep skeletons in the closet.
This is the chart of someone who is their own boss has a lot of energy and achieves a lot. very unusual woman, with a deep love of art Saturn Neptune conjunction in the 12th out of sign.
