ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Aries can now continue on a theme of outreach which began last month.

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
This week heralds a time where your deeper emotions can spur you into action.

You will find now that there are other important relationships that need some outreach and your personal attention. You are a shining star, Leo. Now shine your star on others.

VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)

The Surrealist Artist Leonora Carrington Created Tarot Card Paintings

Hierophant-920x1024In a case of art meets new age, artist Leonora Carrington created a series of tarot card paintings.

As reported in Artnet news -

Tere Arcq didn’t expect anything like what she found during a 2017 visit to a collector while she was doing research for the 2018 show “Leonora Carrington: Magical Tales” at the Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City.

She knew that Carrington, the English-born painter who lived in Mexico and was part of the Surrealist group, was interested in all things occult. She knew she had done paintings based on imagery from tarot cards. But she did not know that Carrington had done a whole suite of small paintings based on the Major Arcana, the 22 trump cards in the standard 78-card pack.

 

“I was speechless,” Arcq said in a phone conversation. “It was an epiphany.”

She describes it as the greatest surprise of her research for the show, and one of the greatest achievements of the exhibition overall.

These paintings are now the subject of a new book, The Tarot of Leonora Carrington, published by Fulgur Press. A limited edition including the deck in facsimile with an essay on tarot by expert Rachel Pollack, an introduction by the artist’s son, Gabriel Weisz Carrington, and essays by Arcq and art historian Susan Aberth, priced up to $400, sold out within days. A limited edition of the deck alone also went quickly (but will be reissued and available from Fulgur Press direct in January or February). A trade edition of the book will be available in February, priced at $50.

Carrington took the Surrealist world by storm when, at just 19 years old, she fled the confinement of a wealthy English family for the freewheeling scene in Paris. André Breton took up her cause, and her work went on view in the Surrealist group’s exhibitions and publications. She left Europe for Mexico during the Second World War, where she befriended cultural figures including the filmmaker Luis Buñuel. Now firmly part of the art-historical canon, Carrington saw her work exhibited in museums worldwide before she died in 2011 at age 94. Interest has only grown since.

For Aberth, the discovery of the deck sheds new light on Carrington’s body of work.

 

“Once we saw the tarot, we immediately knew that this was very important to the iconography,” she said in a phone interview. “For many years, people thought her work was playful, a bit like fairy tales. But it’s a very serious study of esoteric principles—primary among them the tarot.” She describes a famous 1938 portrait of her then-lover, the artist Max Ernst, as being “exactly like” the Hermit from the tarot deck.

Many versions of the tarot deck exist, but, by Arcq’s lights, Carrington’s is unique. She primarily drew inspiration from the well-known Rider-Waite set, as well as the Marseilles tarot. But her use of gold and silver leaf, mostly when the imagery shows the sun or the moon, reaches back to conventions of older sets, and her inspirations were diverse: the figure of the High Priestess, Arcq says, looks to Egyptian renditions of the goddess Isis.

The new book scratches several itches, including an overdue interest in women artists who were overshadowed by their male peers, and a new enthusiasm for artists with a taste for the occult (such as Hilma af Klint and Agnes Pelton).

But while the occult may be hot right now, Aberth points out that for Carrington, it wasn’t just a means of fortune-telling, but rather a guiding principle on a much higher plane.

“For a certain portion of the population, one of tarot’s appeals is divination,” she says. “Like in all divination practices, there is the element of chance unfolding a higher truth. But Carrington was way beyond divination. She studied tarot very seriously as a means to journey upon a higher realization path. It has a psychological as well as a spiritual element. It’s a guide for greater self-knowledge.”

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Friends can be very helpful to you now. But even more so, you can be very helpful to them. That is the secret to your success - to make your associations and connections more meaningful and valuable through your own efforts and outreach. Spread the love , Aries, and care and see how that not only benefits others but also benefits you over the long term.

TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
There is more to life than one’s personal goals right now, Taurus. That is why your time is best spent expanding your efforts on projects that reach out to and benefit the many. Maybe this sparks a shift in your long term plans or reinforces your commitment to a specific situation. But the benefits and rewards will be great no matter how long or short it is.

GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
While travel may still be off the schedule for the short term, you will find more ways to expand your mind, enrich your experiences and get out of your personal rut. The expanse of the globe is in your grasp, Gemini. Find ways to connect to others who can give you fresh perspectives and information for future vacations. The world keeps spinning and so will you.

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers can not only get deep and personal into a particular subject, they also can attract a bit of feisty attention to themselves. What do you hope to get from a particular person? What deep secrets will be revealed? The mystery box is opened and the contents may surprise you. Excitement is part of the overall experience but so is enlightenment.

LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Certain partnerships figure prominently in your life now, Leo, especially those that bring you to a new level of awareness and responsibility. So be aware of times when you are called to take on more responsibility to help someone close to you. The simple act of being there for someone is important and surprisingly fulfilling for you.

VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Have you been procrastinating too much, Virgo? If so, now is the time to focus on any projects that are gathering dust and may have an expiration date. Once you finally get to work, you will accomplish much more than you think. Others will soon join in and help you out so the wider the audiences and bigger the effort, the better. Start now.

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Your creativity will hit a high note now, Libra, as your imagination is expands into all types of arts. So see how far your talents can take you and find ways to experiment with previously untried subjects. What can you do with all of this inspiration to make it last and impactful to many others? The answer comes to you as you go along.

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
This is an excellent time to get your house in order, Scorpio, whether that means in relationships or in general improvements projects. Where to begin? Try to apply your efforts in areas that will bring more happiness and contentment in your life while also offering something wonderful and enticing to others. The more the merrier as we continue through 2021.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Your best ideas in the near term will come from developing a more expansive and global perspective, Sagittarius. That means that whatever you want to accomplish now should be able to reach as many people as possible. Talk about it with others. Formulate your knowledge base with experts. Then take charge, express yourself and make your big move. Wow!

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
No matter how much money you need or how much money you earn now, it will be nothing from nothing if you can’t also share it in some way with deserving others or in a good cause. Explore how your values might have changed since the pandemic, Capricorn, and what you can do to make life better and happier overall. If not you then who? If not now then when?

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
There is something about you now that is so charming and charismatic that you may not know what to do with all of your wonderfulness. Let me make a suggestion - turn all that goodness outward and get more involved in helping others and making good from where you see bad. Life is too short to let this opportunity for greatness fade, Aquarius.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Your intuition is working overtime now, Pisces. Your sense of destiny is great. So take your life to the next level and make your plans for the next few months now. Find ways to destress and relax through meditation and yoga. This can lead you to not only a refreshed perspective on certain challenges but also finding new opportunities for success.
