Bishop by Jim Lee

Greetings, dear reader! This post is the tenth in a series revealing my Heroic Tarot process featuring my award-winning X-Men cards.   Today we take a look at all of the cards featuring Bishop!

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.

If you would like an X-Men Tarot reading, I will be in San Francisco all of October!  My schedule is here, so let me know which date/time works for you!  I also give readings over the phone and via email!  Contact me for more information at stormantic(at)gmail(dot)com!

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, Bishop is all of the Tens.  The number Ten represents mastery, completion and tradition.  The cycle has come to an end and we can choose to relearn those lessons or evolve to the Court cards.  Either way, the wheel has turned and we can no longer cling to the old ways.

Note: I will be referring to each card by their traditional tarot names, although I will provide the equivalent playing card terms under each image.
