The Tower - SGA Tarot by sixfuzzyslippers The Tower - SGA Tarot by sixfuzzyslippers
"Sometimes, when accepted and welcomed, divine wisdom and enlightenment flow freely like a calm river. The rest of the time, wisdom is blocked until it rages forth like a tidal wave and crushes anything in its path, including the recipient of the wisdom. This is the energy of the Tower card, an energy very similar to Death in that it is both a destructive and a creative force. When a building is old and decrepit, it must be demolished so that a new structure may stand in its place. The same is true of the symbolic Tower. When old attitudes and beliefs are outdated, you will have to let go of them, whether you like it or not."

I'm doing the Major Arcana of the Tarot featuring scenes and characters from Stargate: Atlantis. This is the first that I've finished, but it's card number 16 in the Major Arcana.

i love that idea. making your own tarot cards. i heard somewhere that like with runes, making your own tarot makes them even better :)
looking forward to seeing more of them!

Thanks! This idea has been spinning around in my brain for awhile now, so I figured it was time to let the brain-crack free. I'm really enjoying making these.

i had the idea too a few years ago, but i the inspiration was never quite there.. but to be able to put the cards on the table - and say "i made them myself" . just too cool!!!
i promised myself to make my own runes :)
