Heroic Tarot Tuesday: Jean Grey

Jean Grey

Greetings, dear reader! This post is the eigth in a series revealing my Heroic Tarot process.  Today we take a look at all of the cards featuring Jean Grey!

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, Cyclops is all of the Kings, Storm is all of the Queens, Wolverine is all of the Jacks, etcetera.  Jean Grey is represented on the face of all of the nines, which makes a lot of sense since the number nine symbolizes wisdom, spirituality and enlightenment.  Who better than the former wielder of the cosmic Phoenix Force to give us insight about these concepts?

Black Widow: Deadly Origin

black widow tom raneyNovember brings a new Black Widow mini-series by Paul Cornell and Tom Raney (That’s his art above).  Read about the mini at Comic Book Resources.  I’m really excited about this series as Natalia is one of my favorite characters and Cornell is one of my favorite writers (His Captain Britain & MI13 being a recent addiction).  I’m really psyched that Cornell plans to show not only Natalia’s beginnings, but also her early interactions with Hercules (Champions era Black Widow is among my favorite incarnations of Natalia).  I love that a super spy and a god were on a team together.  Black Widow is one of the few remaining women in the Marvel Universe who has still retained a strong sense of identity and independence.  It seems that Cornell intends to keep it that way!
