The Artist's Concept

This is the first card I was drawn to when first discovering the Tarot. I had only a Rider-Waite-Smith deck and saw this card to match the restlessness of my adolescence (notably, this has little to do with the LWB definition which is about "dominion" and such). At that time it meant that I would find a way out, that I had places to go. I've aged a bit, and my feeling of this card has too, although its importance has not lessened for me. Now I see more of a manic ineffectuality resulting from too many ungrounded options. This is what I hoped to represent in the layered landscapes facing the frozen-in-motion character - they are a surplus of horizons and possible choices. She has sampled too many options that are not on a harmonious, patient path.

Card Meaning

I would interpret this card to be a warning of potential overload and imbalance. It hints at a need to take a deep breath and let the universe show the natural path, instead of grabbing at too many all at once. There are always many possibilities, but generally one will fall naturally under your feet, if you listen and wait.

Card Media

This card is a collage of magazine scenery and drafting paper.
