This is the third Major so far this week, and another beautiful example of Lady Harris’ imagination and skill.
Unlike the Death cards in other decks, which seem stiff and, uh, dead – this depiction is filled with life. It’s difficult for me to resist breaking into a joyous rendition of Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid. Death is dancing, and stirring up the funk. We see what appear to be souls floating up toward the light.
This is the Astrological Trump of Scorpio, and we find the scorpion, serpent and eagle all present.
This incredible celebration of creativity and rebirth flies in the face of those who find the Thoth deck to be grim or sinister.
Such life. Such joy. Such beauty.
