Creating the Princess of Pentacles
It's Sunday, and I was feeling a bit crafty. For the upcoming Mabon Blog Hop in September the task is to create a Tarot card that reminds us most of that autumn festival. I did so last night, and I'll share more about it when the autumnal equinox rolls around! However it was fun dabbling in a medium that I don't normally work with, and I decided to keep experimenting with it. So I used my eldest daughter's image in this rendition of the Princess of Pentacles:
Isabella considers this Page/Princess to be her significator in the Tarot, and for good reason: she is probably the earthiest kid I know with her Sun, Moon and Ascendant representing all three earth signs in the zodiac! So for my Triple Earth child I've created this card that looks something like how I'd imagine a wood sprite. Vibrant earth-energy radiates around her while a golden pentacle-orb floats in the air in front of her. I love the expression on her face, the knowing smile. She understands the beauty and raw possibility of this suit, and offers it up to the world!
