Creating Books or Art with Tarot
Did you know you can use Tarot to end writers block? Tarot can also help you create the theme of a painting or sculpture you feel ready to start. In fact having your own cards just for building the outline plot of a book, a blog or school essay can be a powerful tool. There's nothing magical about it. Like ink blot tests, Tarot brings out the issues, dramas and spiritual questions within you, and through symbol association helps build the plot or art work, essay or blog you are creating. Tarot is the best tool for ending writers block or a creative dry spell there is! The possibilities in using Tarot as a teaching aid for creativity in class are wonderfully New Age.

Did you know you can use Tarot to end writers block?  Tarot can also help you create the theme of a painting or sculpture you feel ready to start.  In fact having your own cards just for building the outline plot of a book, a blog or school essay can be a powerful tool.   There's nothing magical about it.  Like ink blot tests, Tarot brings out the issues, dramas and spiritual  questions within you,  and through symbol association helps build the plot or art work, essay or blog you are creating.  Tarot is the best tool for ending writers block or a creative dry spell there is! The possibilities in using Tarot as a teaching aid for creativity in class are wonderfully New Age.  Here are some examples:





First of all, when using Tarot for stimulating Writers Block or a Creative Dry Spell, it does not matter whether you read Tarot Cards professionally  or not.  Find a deck of cards at Barnes & Nobles or order a deck of Tarot Cards through the Internet.  Be sure and research the art work.  If the style and colors of the pictures do not speak to you personally...keep on looking.  Maybe you like Native Art, or perhaps you love happy pastel colors.  Then again maybe you are totally into dark mysterious colors of the Renaissance.  This will be your tool for creative development.

  • Your Deck of Tarot is your very special tool for creativity.
  • Use them like ink blot tests. 
  • Use the pictures to stimulate your ideas, or look up their meanings in the book that comes with them.
  • Hold the cards in your hand.  Get familiar with them.
  • Let your mind go numb. Try not to think. Just flow.
  • What thoughts come to you as you gaze into the pictures?
Shake hands with your creativity. Your ready to start making an outline or theme for your writing project or art work. Now shuffle your cards, or spread them out on a table.  Choose 3 to 5 cards.


LAY DOWN 3 TO 5 CARDS. GAZE IN TO THEM IN THE SAME DIRECTION AND ORDER YOU WOULD READ  A BOOK. {LEFT TO RIGHT}







 IN THIS EXAMPLE YOU ARE CREATING AN OUT LINE FOR A BOOK

We will use the middle card as your theme.  In this case it is about  "choices. "  This could be about choosing between life styles, spiritual beliefs, careers or even lovers.  In this chapter we will focus on:   What is it my character is trying to make a choice about in life?   {What speaks to me?} 


Example for creating a Book, Essay or Blog with Tarot


THEME  {Middle Card}

JANE IS IN LIMBO.  SHE WAS DOING ALL SHE COULD TO PLEASE HER PARENTS EXPECTATIONS OF HER. HER TRUE PASSION WAS TO FOLLOW  CRIMINAL LAW.


CARD ON FAR LEFT  - Chapter 1

When Jane was little her parents taught her the importance of excelling in school and becoming a Dr.  They constantly impressed on her what she needed.  But to Jane it wasn't  the surgery that intrigued her as much as how the accidents happened in the first place.


CARD ON FAR RIGHT - Theme of story

Jane decides to go against her parents and follow her passion.  As the story blossoms she follows her own goal to become a great criminal investigator. 

FOR EACH CHAPTER ANOTHER GROUP OF CARDS CAN BE LAID TO DEVELOP THE PLOT/ CHAPTER/ BLOG
 





  • Each row of cards can be a dynamic to develop your story
  •  Remember the lay out will be your own.  
  • The symbolism will speak to YOU in your own creative way. 
  • No more writers block. 
  • Let your special cards speak to you like ink blot tests or look up the meanings.
  • Go with the flow and before long you will be in a creative tunnel vision.




  • HOW CAN THIS BE USED IN PAINTINGS OR SCULPTURES?

To develop a theme or essence for a painting  lay one or more cards down and go within.  Trust your emotions. Develop the essence within  and create your painting or sculpture.  For example only, we'll say this artist lay down the following lay out to come up with the theme of this painting.








Far Left - The Past - The artist sees the turmoil of his past
Middle Card - Present - Love, Sexuality, Bonding
Far Right - Freedom!  A new beginning and transformation. Enlightenment!

This painting is used as an example only to show what the painters final creative expression, through Tarot, led them to.
