Vijita Behere

Vijita Behere
Literatarot - India
V - Papa/Hierophant
Vijita always had a great interest in Art & Design, and Divination.
Because of her constant involvement in the creative activities and due to my interest and aptitude in art n design she chose to study architecture. She intends to canalize her artistic potential into a profession.
Her interest in divination began many years ago; particularly palmistry but her interest in Tarot developed only three years ago. Since then she has read books, searched on the net, studied the cards, their history and meanings and collected books and deck besides conducting readings for friends and relatives. She is skilled in AutoCAD, Photoshop, CorelDraw, 3Ds MAX, Sketching, Painting, Calligraphy and Tarot Reading
The traditional interpretations of the Hierophant card are moral law, a wise and capable advisor, a practical instructor, belief system, spiritual consolation, knowledge, identification, faith, conformity, tradition. Most of the traditional interpretations and keywords for the Hierophant card describe the personality of Chanakya.
Chanakya also known as Vishnugupta and Kautilya lived around the third century BC but his ideas and principles are still guiding the present day world. He is also know as a King Maker because he played vital role in bringing down the Nanda dynasty and establishing his bright student Chandragupta Maurya as the emperor. Also the credit of the defeat of Alexander the Great in India goes to Chanakya.
Chanakya is respected for his wisdom, philosophy and unfailing strategies, authored books like Arthashastra, Nitishastra and Chanakyaniti. His books cover a wide range of topics like statecraft, politics, military warfare, strategy, selection and training of employees, leadership skills, legal systems, accounting systems, taxation, fiscal policies, civil rules, internal and foreign trade etc. It also covers various technical subjects including medicine, gemology, metallurgy, measures of length, tables of weights, divisions of time, among many others. His work is still referred by modern day scholars and governments across the world. 
As I think, the role of The Hierophant is to mediate between the ever-changing world of busy life and eternal truth. Chanakya performed the same duty. He tried to reduce the problems of the common man through his book Chanakyaniti. He set rules and standards wherever needed. He tried to reduce all sorts problems of society and organization by providing people with tactics, guidelines and principals wherever he found need to organize and to discipline. In the card, I have also tried to use some symbols. Om- Represents the merging of physical form with the spiritual. Peacock feather - symbolizes the wisdom and knowledge.

XI - Giustizia/Justice:
I Ching - The Book Of Changes
Preeti was introduced to divination when she started making predictions with playing cards and found it fascinating. She has been following her intuition for years now while learning more and more about the subject. She has a career in Human Resources in which she finds intuition to be an invaluable tool to be used whenever the need be. She loves nature and the outdoors and loves spending her free time doing constructive and creative work.

Swati is an entrepreneur and Tarot reader who works with Tarot as a transformational and healing tool. She has conducted numerous workshops and seminars on Tarot and its applications. She has been into the mystical and magickal arts since childhood and has in the last seven years attempted to create more awareness about Tarot as a spiritual tool. She lives and practices in Mumbai and is the founder of Tarot India Network. She hopes to bring out more and more transformation with the use of Tarot as a helping art.
The I Ching can correctly be described as an explanation of the laws of change in the universe and of how human beings can learn to live in harmony with these laws. I Ching is one of the most ancient texts in the world and is called The Book of Changes.
The card drawn here is inspired by this ancient Chinese oracle and spiritual literature. Medium used is a mixture of charcoal and digital.

The I Ching, or Book of Changes, is the most widely read of the five Chinese Classics. The book was traditionally written by the legendary Chinese Emperor Fu Hsi (2953-2838 B.C.). Futher commentaries were added by King Wen and the Duke of Chou in the eleventh century B.C.
An I Ching interpretation is performed by making six binary decisions (a hexagram). This is called 'casting the I Ching'. These are written down as a stack of six solid (Yang) or broken (Yin) lines. The basis of the hexagrams is that combinations of Yang and Yin lines form eight trigrams, and permutations and combinations of eight trigrams in pairs, with one below and one above create
sixty-four hexagrams, each with their own meanings. The I Ching decisions were traditionally made either by tossing yarrow stalks or coins. There are actually four possible values for each of the lines; the two Yin/ Yang values, and a line which changes from Yin to Yang or vice versa. Thus one cast of the I Ching can generate two different hexagrams, which adds depth to the interpretation.

It is said in the I Ching that, "The great attribute of heaven and earth is the giving and maintaining life. The right administration of wealth, correct instructions to the people, and prohibitions against wrong-doing;--these constitute his righteousness."

In the present card, the symbol of Hexagram number eleven called T'ai - conveying the idea of Perfection and Peace is drawn. The lower trigram Khien, composed of three undivided lines, is the symbol of heaven (strength and action) and the upper trigram composed of three divided lines is the symbol of earth, (receptivity). Earth being supported by Heaven in hexagram eleven is the symbol of perfect balance and rising above of problems by never leaving the path of righteousness and truth.

VIIII - Eremita/Hermit
The Envoy From Mirror City by Janet Frame

Janet Frame was a New Zealand novelist, short story writer and poet.

In 1945, she entered Seacliff Mental Hospital, near Dunedin, where she was (wrongly) diagnosed as schizophrenic.

After her release, in 1956 she left New Zealand for Europe, travelling in the Mediterranean and living for seven years in London. Here, she wrote three novels and two collections of short stories.

Envoy to Mirror City is her third autobiography (in a series of 3) that chronicles her time away from New Zealand and final return to the town of her birth. It is during this time that specialists in London confirm her misdiagnosis and she learns to define herself after so many years defined by the mental and a society which looks to her to play a an appropriate feminine role. She mostly travels a solitary inner and outer path as she finds the meaning and direction in her writing.

“...out of a desire to be myself, not to follow the ever-dominant personalities around me, I had formed the habit of focusing in places not glanced at by others, of deliberately turning away from the main view...My memory of myself contains now myself looking outward and myself looking within from without, developing the view that others might have of me.” (Frame, 1984).

Relation to the Hermit

Frame spent much of her early life guided from outside herself and no appropriate feminine role models to fit the inordinately creative person she was. Her attempts to create an identity through more socially interactive means lead to the adoption of disastrous masquerades, principally the masquerade as the mad genius, the schizophrenic.

With misdiagnosis confirm she can no longer hold to this and must find her own way to her internal Mirror City, a place where writers are free to create. This process starts in London but much occurs in Ibiza the place I see most when she talks of Mirror City hence the background of the card. No snow covered mountain for this hermit but Ibiza in 1950s was a poor predominant Spanish speaking place giving her plenty of room for solitary exploration.

The 6-pointed star around her neck symbolises both the inner and outward direction. The inward hunt for Mirror City the outward production of telling works of fiction. The purple centre represents her battle to find a feminine expression that also served her creativity.

The candle, illuminates the page on her typewriter. The typewriter is her staff, the thing she leans on to open her inner awareness. It also signifies her role as guide and teacher as it is through her writing that she opens us to expansive new worlds.

Nato a Genova nel 1927 dove vive e lavora. Ha esposto a Roma, Zurigo, Londra, Tokyo, New York. Noto per l'estremo rigore e per l'eccezionale purezza delle sue prove grafiche che si ritrova­no con perfetta coerenza nella sua produzione pittorica; il linguaggio non cede mai alle suggestioni della casualità esterna o alle insidie del compiacimento coloristico: il colore un colore assoluto, e' sempre impiegato in funzione espressiva, non mai in senso naturalistico: quella di Balbi, e' una pittura nettamente mentale, ed i suoi esiti migliori li raggiunge proprio nella piu' alta e libera capacità di astrazione estetica. In questa direzione l'opera di Domenico Balbi appare ben dentro alla problematica piu' viva della pittura contemporanea.

XIV Temperance
Sense and Sensibility
When I interpret the Temperance card, it is usually in one of two ways. First, there is temperance in the sense of tempering a blade or other tool for strength, putting it first in fire, then in water, then in fire again -- the process of stressing and blessing creating something that endures. The other way I look at Temperance is in terms of moderation, finding a balance between extremes. In many decks, such as Rider-Waite-Smith, an angel or woman is shown standing partly on water and partly on land, pouring from a blessing vessel, symbolizing what seems to be a synthesis between these two interpretations: moderation, balance, blessing, strengthening.
For my Temperance card in the LiteraTarot deck, I chose the book Sense and Sensibility, by Jane Austen. The story of the two Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne, seems to me to capture both senses of the Temperance card. The emotional stresses and challenges strengthen and transform both women, bringing them to a balanced, temperate center. Dreamy, romantic Marianne grounds herself in more realistic views of love, and achieves "an apparent composure of mind. . . which must eventually lead her to contentment and cheerfulness." Elinor, on the other hand, who perhaps erred too far to the other extreme of correctness and propriety, allows her loving heart to have the full expression it longs for. Marianne becomes less selfish, and Elinor comes to accept that her own needs and desires are valid as well. At the end of the book, the sisters are happily married, both their families blessed by the angel of temperance. In my card, Elinor attends to the practical duty of the moment, while Marianne loses herself in romantic reverie. The traditional vessel pouring forth blessings is here represented by the teapot, from which flows a brew that brings calmness, strength, and harmony.

Tarot for Animals
Joy of life, happiness and help for our animals are so close,
if we receive answers concerning our pets. When life seems to be full of
doubt and uncertainty we tend to look for a source of inspiration: what
will happen in the future? What about my animal`s health? What will
happen if I make this decision and not that one concerning my pet?
This special Tarot for Animals, consists, similar to a Tarot for Humans, of 78 small and big arcana. Yet this special set of cards is completely different from a Tarot for Humans, because it only cares for the needs of animals of all races. It is only interested in finding solutions for our animal partners and their very special problems. To this set of cards there is a book explaining the meaning of each card. By this deck of cards it is possible for the pet owner to understand the unconscious and conscious thoughts of his pet. The owner will also be able to structure his own attitudes versus the animal. The quality of life for both, the human as well as for the animal will increase. The book as well as the cards function as a mirror concerning the animal`s past, future and present situation. In this book Gudrun Weerasinghe conveys a key to the symbols of the pictures, a practicle interpretation and also a proven method to ask the cards.

Gudrun Weerasinghe is animal communicator and created these cards to support her work for the animal communication. During her work with animals it happens that the owner asks questions like: "How will my horse get on with the horse of my new Californian boyfriend, when I move to California?" "How will my cat feel after the operation?" "What does my dog love and need and what does it dislike?" "What can I do to satisfy the needs of my parrot?" "Why does my cat urinate on the carpet?" "Why is my dog aggressive versus my child?"...
Some of these questions can`t be answered by the animal, even if we know the technique of mental communication with animals. The answer is hidden deeply in the under consciousness or in the future. Yet here the tarot for animals can support us to find solutions.

Gudrun Weerasinghe is also the artist of these 78 expressive, emotional and most beautiful paintings. This deck is worldwide the first Tarot for Animals!

VII The Chariot
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

 The literature I chose was The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum published in 1900. I thought it was a great piece of classic American literature as well as touching on the sensibilities that many lovers of tarot would appreciate.
“When Dorothy stood in the doorway and looked around, she could see nothing but the great gray prairie on every side. Not a tree nor a house broke the broad sweep of flat country that reached to the edge of the sky in all directions. The sun had baked the plowed land into a gray mass, with little cracks running through it. Even the grass was not green, for the sun had burned the tops of the long blades until they were the same gray color to be seen everywhere. Once the house had been painted, but the sun blistered the paint and the rains washed it away, and now the house was as dull and gray as everything else.“
The tornado was the first major source of movement that took Dorothy out of her bleak, gray existence, broke it into a rainbow of color, moved her past what was insurmountable and placed her in a fertile land where she could explore, know and integrate all aspects of her self. Her companions were the horses that she would commandeer along the course of the Sun in her Chariot; beastly, courageous, filled with knowledge, and heart. Dorothy would also meet and usurp her shadow, the Wicked Witch of the West, and free all she had enslaved. This whole journey takes place along the yellow brick road, so similar in color and shape to a ray of sunlight. Illumination of her self is what allowed her to return home triumphant.
At the end of the yellow brick road is the Emerald City, a perfect color as green is the middle color in a rainbow, or the visible spectrum of light, and Gods in myth and legend are often portrayed as riding an emerald chariot or sitting on an emerald throne. Of course this is where she meets Oz who, singly bespectacled like a modern Odin and Magician, gives Dorothy the tools she needs to complete her journey; faith and understanding that she possesses all the knowledge and attributes she needs to get back home by her own skill.
The painting shows Dorothy and Toto aloft in the tornado and beneath them the path they are taking from the cracked dry earth of the Kansas farms up to the insurmountable mountains, on to Munchkinland, then the yellow brick road through forests and fields of poppies, and finally to Emerald City surrounded by mountains, clouds and a glorious rainbow.
Standing at the start of the yellow brick road is the Wicked Witch of the East, hands on hips, looking indignant, knowing something was not right but not guessing she would shortly meet her doom when Dorothy’s house lands on her. She is wearing the ruby slippers (silver in the book, but ruby in accepted iconography) and perhaps she is ignorance.
The Wicked Witch of the West and her flying monkeys are in the upper left corner of the painting and my favorite part of the painting is the Fool weathervane on the house!
Meanings for this card: Knowing and remembering what you are innately capable of, gaining control and mastery of all aspects of your self and then moving along the yellow brick road of your life in balance and good character. Freedom from slavery. Autonomy.

II - Papessa/High Priestess
The Sibylline Prophecies
The Sibyls occupy a conspicuous place in the traditions and history of ancient Greece and Rome. Their fame was spread abroad long before the beginning of the Christian era. The original Sibylline Books were closely-guarded oracular scrolls written by prophetic priestesses (the Sibylls) in the Etruscan and early Roman Era as far back as the 6th Century B.C.E. The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, and of female spiritual power, instinctual, and secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information, and she might reveal the secrets you need to know if you are ready to receive such information.

Diane Wilkes

La Papessa
II – The High Priestess

 The Mists of Avalon
Morgaine, sister of the future King of England, goes to Avalon as a young girl to train as a priestess. Her Aunt Viviane is the High Priestess, and she teaches her to “Always believe what the Sight tells you, for it comes to you directly from the Goddess.”
In order to complete her training as Priestess, Morgaine is cast out of Avalon with only her ritual dagger. To return, she must break through the mists and summon the barge that will enable her to re-enter. In the card, Morgaine stands between the misted, magical island of Avalon and Glastonbury, which represents patriarchal, regimented Christianity on earth. The barge is a vessel that allows her to navigate between the two worlds, an alembic that illustrates her newfound powers, knowledge, and abilities, including the Sight and the responsibilities it demands. While you can see the colors of the rainbow more clearly on the Glastonbury side, the rays radiate from Avalon as well, though they are more elusive to the average eye.

IV The Emperor
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

The Emperor card is one that deals with self-asserted power. It is aggressive authority, creating it's own environmental control with an innate instinct and skill to do so. Others are drawn to follow the emperor, and respect his leadership. It is a card of great traits, like power, command and experience but the emperor is also subject to boredom, restlessness and impatience.
I chose McMurphy from the novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and as I reread Ken Kesey's masterpiece it's meanings breathed within the lines and pages. Randle McMurphy was the emperor of the asylum. He made that clear in his first minutes entering the hospital. He greeted all the patients (regardless of whether they be acute or chronic) and let himself be known. He told them he likes to know who he'll be playing (cards) with. He quickly challenged whoever was the "bull goose loony" of the place, and explained that he's accustomed to being top man. Since Harding seemed to be loosely the leader of the group, McMurphy let him know clearly there's only room for one bull goose loony, and that he's so crazy, he not only voted for Eisenhower last election but that he's planning to vote for him again next election! I think initially it was more about dominance for McMurphy, but ultimately he found himself becoming a true leader. He inspired those around him to be who they really were, and to care about living. He got not only respect but also great love from those around him, and they believed he believed in them. He gained true power, and for the first time was a threat over the enemy, Nurse Ratched. In the end McMurphy made the biggest sacrifice in the emperor's fight and lost his mind. The chief understood this and suffocated him so his legend would survive longer than his body. In this illustration, we have McMurphy at his throne, playing cards with some of the other patients in the asylum feeling pretty good about himself.
Teppei Ando is an artist in his mid twenties currently seen moping around a bank 9-6, for a change from his starving artist position he had been so loyal to since leaving art school. Unknown to his coworkers, Teppei still secretly holds barnacleistically - if you will, to high hopes of being an illustrator and continues to seek low paying freelance work with greedy ambition.
He hopes to continue to keep it real and perfect his style and make friends with all the best sandwich places in the bay area (because once you get to know them, they tend to be the nicest of fooderies).
