I only rule me by N-arteest
I only rule me
Created at random, I had this in my head:  "The city cannot rule me, You cannot rule me, I only rule me."

Three of Cups (Tarot) by N-arteest
Three of Cups (Tarot)
Like the Two of Cups, I had a hard time finding stock where models would seem like they were naturally looking at each other.  In this card  I really wanted to hone in on the theme 'celebration'.  Nothing says celebration more than three girls toasting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Three of Cups Tarot Card Meanings and Description

The Three of Cups is a card of celebration and accomplishment. Three young maidens dance in a circle with their golden goblets upraised in a toast of joy. Their arms reach out to each other and they connect through their emotions and their friendship with one another. The ground is covered with fruit and there is a general sense of abundance and happiness. Each woman in the Three of Cups has a wreath of laurel on her head. Wreaths of this type have long been a symbol of victory and success. A sweet smelling laurel wreath is also a symbol of protection, peace and purification and is a message that the favour of the Universe is upon us, and that we shall be the victor in this stage of our lives. At the women’s feet lie various flowers, symbolising joy, beauty, compassion and growth. The flowers remind us of the good times in life, the sweet smell of success, and the beauty that surrounds us if only we open up to its presence.

Two of Cups (Tarot) by N-arteest
Two of Cups (Tarot)
This was a hard one to do since many couple stocks didn't have the pose I wanted, and when I found suitable models, whether or not they looked convincingly at each other problem altogether.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Two of Cups Tarot Card Meanings and Description

The Two of Cups depicts a man and a woman exchanging cups in what appears to be a wedding ceremony with the caduceus of Hermes between them. The two-snake caduceus design has ancient and consistent associations with trade, negotiation, balance, duality (union of opposites), proper moral conduct, protection and cosmic energy. On the Two of Cups, the caduceus sends a positive message for new partnerships, and suggests that with honour, respect and balance, new relationships shall be rewarding. At the top of the caduceus is a lion’s head, a symbol of passion and fire energy suggesting that there may be a lot of sexual attraction between the people, although that may or may not be allowed to express itself. The two snakes that wind up the caduceus represent dark and light and their coexistence within us.

Ace of Cups (Tarot) by N-arteest
Ace of Cups (Tarot)
This is the first of the Minor Arcana!  I chose to go with cups first since water is definitely my element.  Anyway.  I think the overflow of water in the whole picture represents an abundance of emotion.  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ace of Cups Tarot Card Meanings and Description

The Ace of Cups shows a hand holding a cup or chalice that is overflowing with five streams of water. The hand that appears from the clouds represents our consciousness of spiritual energy and influence. Radiating from the hand are rays which symbolises that you must always trust your inner feelings and your heart to lead the way. This is your intuition and inner power talking to you. The five streams represent the abundance and power of the spirit and the effect of spiritual energy upon our five senses. A dove holding a wafer or small disc in its mouth descends from above, signifying the incarnation and appearance of the spirit in the material world. Below the hand is a great sea covered with lotus blossoms, symbolising the awakening of the human spirit. The cup has an upside down M or a W inscribed on it.

It's official, as with just the other day I put up the last card of my Major Arcana! I was so excited to finally put it, and asides from the last minute freakout--I won't lie, you see I originally had a different model as the female in one of the glowing orbs in the Wheel of Fortune, but then when I went back through my favourites, I couldn't find her! So I had to make a last minute change. But alls well that ends well, it came together beautiful.

Here they are below in order:

Wheel of Fortune (Tarot) by N-arteest
Wheel of Fortune (Tarot)
The Wheel of Fortune.  Mistress Fortune, guardian of the wheel, and around her, you have the people who are tied to the wheel of fortune.  Rather than the usual highly symbolic image, I went with this.  Primarily because my cards are human/figure orientated, but also, I didn't feel like my interpretation of the Wheel of Fortune was like the Rider-Waite cards.  Not exactly. Rather I wanted the kind of card that really reflected the idea of 'choices'.  Hence why the figures in each glowing sphere on the left side of the card is tied to the wheel, their fate to be determined.  See even the guy in topmost sphere has a hand reaching out as if he wants to change his thread-his future.  Furthermore, the guy on the left is also the same guy used in the World Card, since this card should mirror that one (in the rider-waite deck, they do).  But in mine, not so much.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wheel of Fortune Tarot Card Meanings and Description

The Wheel of Fortune is highly symbolic. The angel in the top left corner is Aquarius, the eagle is Scorpio, the lion is Leo and the bull is Taurus. These are the four fixed signs of the Zodiac but all have wings signifying stability amidst movement and change. The book they each have in their hands is the Torah, representing wisdom. On the wheel itself are the Hebrew letters IHVH (Yod Heh Vau Heh), the unpronounceable name of God. Interspersed with these letters are TORA (read anti-clockwise) or TARO (read clockwise) which also translates to TAROT when you return to the spot where you started. The snake descending on the left side of the Wheel is the Egyptian god Typhon, the god of evil. The snake also represents the life force descending into the material world. The Anubis rising on the right side of the Wheel is Hermes, a symbol of intelligence, wisdom ascending or our shadow selves. The Sphinx on the top of the wheel represents life’s riddles. The middle wheel contains the alchemical symbols for mercury, sulphur, water and salt – the building blocks of life and the four elements – and represents formative power. The outer circle represents the material world. The eight spokes in the wheel represent the Universal radiant energy, as well as the eight Sabbats of the year. The blue background represents wisdom.

The planet of this card is Jupiter, the planet of opportunity, growth, success, and expansion. The number 10 is a higher octave of the number 1, empowering the qualities of the 1.

Art for me is something I only do in my free time. I admire the works that people create, the meanings behind the works created, and the effort artists put into creating them. I usually prefer using a fineliner only to create many interesting effects but I also highly enjoy working in photoshop designing and experimenting with layers upon layers to create different effects.
