On Friday evening, my partner, a friend, and I attended the opening of The Elora Tarot Project art show at the Wellington County Museum. Wow! The exhibit is extremely good and really works as a deck (of course, I got one!). Paintings, carved glass, collage, and even a water fountain make up this collection of tarot images. It was heartening to experience the *large* and enthusiastic turnout. Congratulations to all the artists, to Shelley Carter, and to the tarot for weaving such a sense of community. Out of our connection with one another emerges great healing.
Here’s a brief reading/interview with the Elora Tarot deck about itself and about the show:
1. What pulses in the heart of this project? Seven of Wands. The vision of a new life-loving world that can emerge from the dust of the old world.
2. What challenge around this project was successfully overcome? Seven of Pentacles. Finding the single “plant/vine” that could unite the diverse artistic forms of “fruit” that grew as the project evolved.
3. How was that challenge overcome? King of Swords. Authority, precise communication, and absolute honesty.
4. What greater good can emerge from this project? Six of Wands. Recognition that dreams and goals can be made into reality to become ambassadors of the triumph of the imagination.
