Those are mighty shiny! The Lovers is a great choice, by the way.

Nice, though the black text on dark red background is unreadable on my computer (I have to turn the lights off and shade the screen to make anything out).

woah, you could analyse those till the cows come home - well done you. Particularly interested by the choice for the hanged man!

extremely dimensionally transcendental

Have you given any thought to finishing off the deck so we can have all 72 shiny cards?

Yes, I would love to see a finished set.

Hmmm...wonder if reading the cards on the BDM with show cards is bad luck...

thank you very much. I do plan on finishing, but it's a very time consuming process. Keep checking back to that link for more updates.

One of the most time cosuming aspects is finding the right picture to corresspond with the traditional meaning of the card. If any of you know tarot and have a screen catupre suggection please contact me.

The hanged man..
Quote:

Major Arcana XII : The Hanged Man
The Hanged Man is not a victim - he has gone to his fate happily and smiles out at us. He is serene and content - it is his tormentors who will ultimately suffer.

The Hanged Man has that precious gift - a cause in which he believes totally and for which he is willing to risk all, give all. This is a card of self-sacrifice for the good of others.

Many people of religious persuasion draw parallels between the Hanged Man and religious figures such as Christ.

Oppressors know the power of a martyr such as The Hanged Man. Often the State seeks to cripple dissidents financially rather than impose custodial sentences.

If well aspected in a Tarot reading, this card can indicate sacrifice for a cause, giving up one thing to obtain something greater.


What do you really care about?

Ack!!! I knew if I procrastinated about this too long, someone else would get around to it!

Putting together a Firefly tarot deck is something I've talked about/fantasized about for a long while now (something like 2 years, I guess), but I've not gotten around to doing anything about it. Nice to see that someone did.

Being that I read a bit myself, I have my own ideas about the shots for individual cards - and to each his own... there's nothing saying that we have to all agree on what best depicts the archetypal concepts that the cards represent.

Create away!

Wow, those are great!
I too have some different ideas about pics for certain cards, but since a lot of it is about interpreting, of course some of us would get different images in mind.
Excellent! I wish I thought of it. :}

Inara as high priestess. I love it!

Oh, no, honey! I didn't mean to imply that you did... I was simply commenting on my own tendency to procrastinate. (I'm acquiring my husband's "5-minutes-into-the-future-but-didn't-do-anything-about -it" syndrome... )

Agreed - on both counts. I think the screencap I'd want for Inara as High Priestess would be one from Heart of Gold, during Nandy's funeral.
