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

Storm by David Yardin

2 High Priestess: Storm

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!

Heroic Tarot: The Pentacle Tarot Spread

The Pentacle Tarot Spread

I am always on the lookout for new ways to read the Tarot. Recently I was reading old journals of mine and came across this drawing of a spread. I do not remember where I found it or who created it. So if you recognize it, please let me know. For now I am calling it The Pentacle Tarot Spread. There is already a popular Pentacle Spread, but that one has only five cards and focuses on the elemental directions (including Spirit). Let’s check it out!

Judgment

“Do not wait for the last judgment. It comes every day.” ~Albert Camus

The angel Gabriel blows his horn and we are awakened! Judgment is an epiphany, a realization that can transform us. It is time to recognize and rise above our earthly limitations. This card (from The Crystal Tarot by Philip Permutt) asks you to re-evaluate your past, present and future goals, and make the necessary changes to bring about a new spiritual awareness! Let Heroic Tarot help you hone your intuition, and to really live rather than simply exist!

The Kirby Kabbalah

kirby_metronpainting

Jack Kirby was an American comic book artist who is widely regarded as one of the most influential creators in the medium. He created (or co-created) many of the super-heroes who are experiencing success on the big screen today such as Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men and so many more. In his biography of Jack Kirby in his book Kirby: King of Comics, Mark Evanier writes, “Jack Kirby didn’t invent the comic book. It just seems that way…He was, in fact, a storyteller and innovator, first and foremost. A modern-day Aesop, creating myths and fables for the generations to come. After over fifty years in the field, he never ceased creating, nor did he show any signs of running out of ideas.”
