Sunday’s Are for Surprises..

I’m so beyond excited to announce that I’m continuing my tarot series with the fabulous Mary DeCrescenzio. This beautiful lady and I were able to shoot yesterday and it was the perfect pick me up for an intense couple weeks. My twin, Alexandra, tagged along and we were able to shoot two looks inspired by two wonderful cards. I decided to shoot…

The Magician and The Chariot

On Saturday, Alexandra and I ventured to Ed’s Editions, a really great used bookstore in West Columbia with a really great occult section. I wandered over and found the vintage tarot book pictured above and just about cried. It’s amazing, and dense and I can’t wait to take my time to really read it. The universe has perfect timing, finding this book the day before I shot some tarot inspired outfits? Perfection. 

The Magician

waonI picked the magician for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, it’s a card rooted in the idea of manifestation. The Magician speaks of using all the elements at your disposal to create whatever it is you desire. The four suites of the tarot deck (pentacles, cups, wands and swords) are all pictured in this card; the magician has control over every aspect of his/her destiny; material, emotional, creative and spiritual… it’s all there. The imagery in this card is also really, really rich (I have two other decks that I used for inspiration as well). It was easy to be inspired by The Magicians power.

The Chariot

The Chariot is one of those cards that truly sings to the spirit and inner power. This card is all about movement, action and intention; it’s that inner voice that tells you to keep going, it’s that inner drive that makes you move forward. The Chariot from The Wild Unknown is one of my favorites in the deck. It’s probably my favorite image and the horse with the moon on her third eye and a pentacle near her heart really speaks of what the card represents. Intense, intuitive movement forward.

I can’t wait to share more.

Namaste,
