The Tarot of Bones: Two of Swords
 
Progress continues apace on the Tarot of Bones assemblage pieces! Here's the 30th piece, the Two of Swords. It’s a card of difficult decisions, where there are no easy answers and any choice you make could cost you. Not a fun card, but definitely a reality many of us have had to face over the years. Honestly, that’s one of the reasons I rather prefer the Minor Arcana over the Major. The Majors are such great, archetypal forces that they sometimes feel a little out of reach. The Minor Arcana, on the other hand, are the shared, common experiences of humanity, no matter who we are. We all have those tough decisions, and we also all have moments of joy and triumph. The Major Arcana is the pageantry; the Minor is the everyday life. Finally, just a reminder that the Tarot of Bones IndieGoGo campaign ends on May 19! It’s a great opportunity to get the deck and book and a much-reduced price from what the final cover cost will be–and it’s also a wonderful way to help make sure I can get the set out on time. So if you haven’t had a chance to back this campaign yet, or you know someone who may be interested, let today be the day: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-tarot-of-bones/
