Luna Tarot

I never turn down the opportunity to explore the tarot and decided to make a digital tarot card for the theme at The Three Muses this week (cards). I made a whole set of tarot ( major arcana) last year when learning photoshop and with this new one I tried to incorporate a few of the new skills I have worked on. The Moon, decidedly feminine and luminous is represented here along with the wolf ( singing his song to the moon) in the greater cosmos in the background. I have always been drawn to this card for its symbolism and deep, mysterious connections to the rhythms of life.
The image is from Lunagirl, background from scrapbookgraphics, moon and wolf from wikimedia all cropped, colored and layered with multi filters added in Photoshop.

  4. Fantastic image. It definitely invokes the spirit of the moon as feminine, rather than masculine.
