The Star


Immortality, the inner light that illuminates the spirit and hope. These are the words that best describe "The Star" the 17th card in the Major Arcana of the Tarot. Expectation, bright promises and direction also are associated with the archetypical meanings in a reading; in short, a positive feeling associated with stars. This is a digital Tarot card I made using somewhat traditional images (woman with vase of flowing water and a star chart in the background) and an addition of some more contemporary elements. This is my entry for Mixed Media Monday (Stars) .

  6. Great take on the challenge Lori! I'd love to see what you do a full deck of the Major Arcana - digitize, manipulate and Lori-fy. Bet they'd make great greeting cards! =)
