... OKAY SO I haven't actually used this journal feature for years, and this is probably a terrible way to start, but!! I have a weird question to ask, because I’ve had this really random urge to draw a set of Star Wars-related tarot cards for a new project :D A lot of characters seem to fit really well, but I have an admittedly limited knowledge of tarot, and I’m not too sure about some of these choices, especially the ones with question marks. It would be very very awesome if anyone had any comments or ideas too (I’m trying to keep it within movie canon if possible, just for simplicity!) 

0. The Fool - Luke Skywalker 
(Beginnings, innocence, spontaneity, a free spirit)

I. The Magician - Anakin Skywalker
(Power, skill, concentration, action, resourcefulness)

II. The High Priestess Shmi Skywalker??
(Intuition, higher powers, mystery, subconscious mind)

III. The Empress - Padme Amidala
(Fertility, femininity, beauty, nature, abundance)

IV. The Emperor - Chancellor/Emperor Palpatine
(Authority, father-figure, structure, solid foundation)

V. The Hierophant - Yoda
(Religion, group identification, conformity, tradition, beliefs)

VI. The Lovers - Anakin and Padme
(Love, union, relationships, values alignment, choices)

VII. The Chariot - Millenium Falcon
(Control, will power, victory, assertion, determination)

VIII. Strength - Leia Organa
(Strength, courage, patience, control, compassion)

IX. The Hermit - Old Ben Kenobi
(Soul-searching, introspection, being alone, inner guidance)

X. Wheel of Fortune - Duel of the Fates (Qui-Gon & Obi-Wan vs Maul)
(Good luck, karma, life cycles, destiny, a turning point)

XI. Justice - Obi-Wan or Mace Windu?
(Justice, fairness, truth, cause and effect, law)

XII. The Hanged Man - Han Solo in carbonite trololol
(Suspension, restriction, letting go, sacrifice)

XIII. Death - Darth Vader
(Endings, beginnings, change, transformation, transition)

XIV. Temperance - Jedi or The Force
(Balance, moderation, patience, purpose, meaning)

XV. The Devil - Darth Sidious or the Sith in general?
(Bondage, addiction, sexuality, materialism) - er, ignoring the sexuality part here...

XVI. The Tower - Jedi Temple / Order 66
(Disaster, upheaval, sudden change, revelation)

XVII. The Star - Luke & Leia and Rebel Alliance/X-Wings?
(Hope, spirituality, renewal, inspiration, serenity)

XVIII. The Moon - Death Star
(Illusion, fear, anxiety, insecurity, subconscious)

XIX. The Sun - Tatooine suns?? I have no idea…
(Fun, warmth, success, positivity, vitality)

XX. Judgement - Duel on Death Star II
(Judgement, rebirth, inner calling, absolution)

XXI. The World - Luke, Leia & Han together on Endor
(Completion, integration, accomplishment, travel)

... aaand that's it so far! PLEASE HALP?? or just tell me this is a stupid idea haha

My mom had a pack of tarot - they usually mean different things if the cards are placed upside down too but I'll have to ask my mom when I get back for more information, sorry c:

If you guys are thinking about doing a deck of cards I can be of assistance I have my own deck and the book to go with it if you make the deck and sell it you'll need a book to go with it for the people who don't know how to read them

That would be cool! If a group collaboration happens then you should totally get in touch about it :)

Question: I'm pretty sure some people are gonna do a collab with u or something but can I use this and do my version in pictures of this?  Because my Star Wars/Avatar phase is running to an end and I've been getting into tarot card stuff via Cassandra Jean The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices.

Of course, that would be really awesome! I would love to see your interpretations of the cards, and I'm sure other people have had this idea too so it's free for all :D It would be cool to see how different people depict the same card!

And this is not a stupid idea.   I have a few other characters in mind that could be added to the deck.

I know that your Tarot deck is a long way coming but do you think you would possibly sell it? Because I have a mighty need for a Star Wars tarot deck. It would be perfect for my Pop Culture Paganism. 
Or... would you be interested in doing a project where we got 78 artist for all 78 cards (or 39 and everyone did two or even 13 artists to do three cards eached...)  to make this project do able? Just a thought I've been kicking around... 
shorelle Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh yes, I would be putting it up for sale when it's finished (just to cover the costs of printing!) and will let you know :)

Having a collaborative project would be really cool too! I would probably be overwhelmed with finding 78 (or even 39 etc) artists and getting that many people organised (especially if people have conflicts on who should be on what card @_@) because my admin abilities are very limited, but if you or other people are keen on organising it, that would be totally cool! :D I'd support it! :la:

I didn't even think about the people conflicting over what goes on what...  I'm going to have to think about this some more XD
