Carpe Diem #184, Tarot (regular)
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
What a joy to prepare the first episode of our new Carpe Diem month May 2013. A little different than all other months I think, because of the prompt-list ... all prompts about Tarot. Tarot ... it sounds occult, but that isn't true. Tarot is just a deck of playing-cards and it's roots are somewhere around the Mediterranean Sea. The Tarot-cards became somewhat occult by the use of the cards by Gipsy Fortune-tellers. Hereafter I will share a picture of the Tarot-cards which I mentioned.
And to complete that deck of playing cards you've just to think about modern playing cards. This month we will explore the true meaning of the Tarot cards ... and that's not as occult as the most people think.
For example: The ancient wisdom of the Kabbalah and Tarot are super intwined with eachother and the Tarot has a rich history ... let us go on a journey through the Tarot cards a simple deck of playing cards which became divine.
just simple cards
becoming mysterious through history -
Well ... this was our first step in our journey through the Tarot ... hope you enjoyed it ... and please don't be shy or anxious to write and share your haiku on Tarot ...
This prompt will stay on 'til May 2nd 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post our next step in our journey through the Tarot cards, The Fool (0), later on today around 10.00 PM (CET).
