The LEGO Tarot

I've been studying and working with Tarot for many years now, and have collected quite a few decks in that time. But how can any other deck compare to Chris Doyle's LEGO deck, which is unfortunately unpublished, but viewable online in full at this great site.

And if you're someone who gets a bit spooked by some of the heavy imagery associated with Tarot, the LEGO version might help ease nerves and put it all in perspective. Here are links to a couple of the traditionally more scary images, the Death card and 10 of Swords.

The rest of this site is great too, especially the Mini-Mizer, which I've found is a soothing antidote to the limbo of writers block :-)

These are MARVELOUS! You are so right---it really changes it when you get a LEGO death card, or a LEGO three of swords (my least favorite card). Most fun.

And I just checked out your monthly horoscopes-- very nice, well written. I'm passing your name on to many people. Time you got your own fair share of Astro-fame.
