The Fool in The Luna Sol Tarot

By Darren Shill

It’s strange how one of the most interesting  Major Arcana cards (from a numerological perspective) arguably doesn’t have a number at all. Here is a Zero that could represent nothing but is the source of everything. It is the beginning and it is also the end.

Constance Armitage lives between the worlds of art and technology. She began personifying hardware components and visualising concepts whilst studying Computer Science because it was the most effective (and fun) way for her to learn. Finding later that many others also learn in this way, her interest in using storytelling and art to explain abstract ideas grew. In a time where technological advancements are fuelled by greed, where ethics and social impact are afterthoughts, and change is increasingly fast-paced and complex, anxiety and stress are commonplace in many daily lives. Constance tries to promote a kinder, slower, calmer way of working and living through her art.

The Two of Cups in the Luna Sol Tarot (PLUS a special offer!)

By Darren Shill

There is something weird that happens between the Aces and the Twos in the tarot. Aces always feel special. All that potential and pure essence of the suit gives them a presence that stands apart from the other cards.

The Ace of Swords in The Luna Sol Tarot

By Sarah Wray

The Ace of Swords is a personal favourite of mine – one of those cards appeared in my earliest tarot readings, at exactly the moment I needed it to, and has appeared often since. It feels like something that’s connected to me at least for the moment. Frankly (and maybe a bit weirdly!) it feels like my card. It’s the first card I go looking for when I’m checking out a new deck. Usually identifying more with the watery emotions depicted by the cups suit (I am a Pisces, after all!), it’s necessary to come up for air from time to time and get some clarity. It certainly was for me on my 30th birthday, when I gave myself a reading while in a bit of a rut, and it has served as inspiration and reminder that, if I try, I can easily see what has to happen and, crucially, I already have all of the tools within me to set off on that path.

We’re thrilled to announce our first webcomic! Created by Kaylee Pinecone and hosted on the Liminal 11 blog, Tales of the Tarot follows the story of each card in the major arcana, from The Fool to The World. We’ve always felt that tarot readings, with their image-led narratives, are a lot like comics, so it’s wonderful to bring this idea to life with Kaylee!

Chapter 0 – The Fool goes live on the 15th of August! (read it now

Kaylee Pinecone is an illustrator/content creator currently lost in a cornfield, somewhere in the Midwest… and we love her idea for this wonderful tarot comic! More from Kaylee: Shop * Blog * Twitter * Tumblr

Behind the Back of The Luna Sol Tarot

By Darren Shill

This week’s Tarot Tuesday reveal was the picture you will see most frequently in Mike Medaglia’s The Luna Sol Tarot – the reverse of the card. This truly gorgeous image is largely self-explanatory; the glowing half-moon (Luna) beneath the blazing sun (Sol). But what may be less clear is the central symbol of black and white concentric lines. This it’s this element I will focus on here.
