The Magician – The source of all power
I was initially inspired by the way Carl Jung used the Tarot to get his subjects to explore their own subconscious selves, through the universal archetypes represented by each card.
At the same time, I had become aware that repeatedly we are bombarded with photo montages of women that are perpetuate romanticised fantasy of dreamy, pure, young girls, and I began to wonder what this does for our inner psyches.
I know that there is much more to us that that, so this deck is my attempt to explore different aspects of the female psyche using the archetypes inherent in the Tarot as tools. It is to be an exploration and celebration of women everywhere.
In traditional Tarot decks, the magician is all powerful. Always a man, always skillful, self confident, often arrogant and always with a halo above his head. He can be very manipulative as well. The magician represents the potential of a new adventure, chosen or thrust upon one, and a journey of enlightenment.

The music is so hauntingly beautiful, and adds to what I was trying to say in the image.
