Abandoned by his mother at birth, Kurt was rescued and raised by a sorceress and trained in the circus as an acrobat. It was some time during his years in the carnival that he found faith in the Catholic religion. This connection to a higher source of power would be of great resource to Kurt through many tumultuous years of challenges.

Storm by David Yardin

Today we continue our look at the Major Arcana through the lens of Marvel’s X-Men comic book characters! Last week we examined Professor X as The Magician.  This week we honor the weather manipulating mutant known as Storm!

Born from the union of an American photojournalist and an African princess, Ororo Munroe was worshipped as a goddess in her native Kenya.  On a quest to rescue his original X-Men students, Professor X recruited Ororo, informing her that she was a mutant, not a goddess, and that the world needed her. Storm decided to accompany Charles saying, “You present a most peculiar argument–yet I sense a deep sincerity in your words…Perhaps the time has come for me to leave the nest at last.”

Heroic Tarot Tuesday: Major Arcana X-Men, Part I

I have been an avid reader of the X-Men comics and a reader of the Tarot since I was in my early teens. I thought it would be an entertaining exercise to “cast” my favorite mutants as The Major Arcana. This is a fun way to learn about the Tarot archetypes if you are an X-Men fan, or a great way learn about some awesome characters if you are a Tarot practitioner. When studying mysticism it is always a good idea to keep mixing it up. It’s important to keep concepts flexible!

Celebrate Freedom! Heroic Tarot’s July Schedule

“I don’t have a diary, I don’t write things into a diary. I imprint myself into the sky and when the sunlight shines brightly, I can stand under the sun’s rays and everything I have imprinted of myself into the sky, I will begin to see again, feel again, remember. And when the wind begins to blow, it blows the details over my face, and I remember everything I left in the sky and see new things being born. I am unwritten.”

~C. JoyBell C.

In Tarot readings the presence of The Four of Wands (seen above depicting Rogue on the Four of Clubs from my X-Men Tarot series) symbolizes the feeling one gets after a great challenge. It’s having the optimism to see yourself through the hardship and focusing on gratitude for what you already have. It’s also the exhilarating feeling that freedom brings. Are you tied down to something that no longer brings you excitement? What could you bring to completion? Are you in a rite of passage?  Let Heroic Tarot help you bring more stability into your work and creativity!

Heroic Tarot: The Complete X-Men Tarot Series

Professor X - Ace of Diamonds

Greetings, dear reader! Welcome to my Heroic Tarot process featuring my award-winning X-Men cards!

The X-Men playing card deck is adorned with images of Marvel’s Merry Mutants.  I have created a system combining traditional Minor Arcana meaning with my vast knowledge of X-Men comic book stories.  The archetypal roles the X-Men represent bring the energy of the missing Major Arcana to the overall calculation.  I reveal the superheroic tales relevant to your path.   This dual reading is amplified by the elemental nature of whatever suit is pulled in addition to the numerological/feudal court energy contained therein.

I invite you to take a look at all of the cards featured and compare my comic-based interpretations with how they relate to traditional tarot definitions. Here they are in order:
