The Six of Swords – The Tarot

 

The Six of Swords – or The Six of Blades as we’re calling it in The Dream Logic Tarot – indicates a “regretful but necessary transition, rite of passage.”

For this card we used a dagger with a damascus-style blade and a background image of clouds from the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge in NM. We also used a stain glass image from a Church in Providence of the All Seeing Eye, which I turned into a fractal with orbit traps in Adobe Photoshop.

The Fool - Card 0 of the Major Arcana

The Fool – Card 0 of the Major Arcana

The Fool is card 0 of the major arcana or trump cards. The Fool represents infinite possibility with only a hint of the limitations implied by incarnation.

According to my collaborator Anthony Teth:

The Tarot draws heavily from Platonic concepts. In this light, the Fool represents pure potentiality — the first emanation from the source of divine union, known as Kether to the Qabalists. The Fool is thus androgynous, curious, and whimsical, enamored with each new experience. It is the card of the inner child or perpetual youth. Its element is Air, highlighting its inherent intellectual nature not yet “tainted” by experience, dogma, or pedagogy.

I’m developing The Dream Logic Tarot in collaboration with occultist Anthony Teth.
