Greetings, dear reader! This post is the thirteenth in a series about my process regarding my X-Men Tarot. Today we take a look at all of the cards featuring Cyclops!
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 numeralogical/feudal court energy contained therein.
One of the interesting aspects of the X-Men cards that I use is that every character gets to be represented four times. For example, Wolverine is all of the Jacks, Jubilee is all of the Twos, Iceman is all of the Threes, etcetera. Cyclops is represented on the face of all of the Kings. If we think about how Kings represent mastery, wisdom and control then it makes a lot of sense for Scott Summers, known for his battle ready skill and tactics, to be featured on them. Kings are leaders who understand the process and power of manifestation. With a nurturing Queen by their side, they are a force with which to be reckoned.
