Bohemian Gothic Tarot: Freakiest Card

So as my personal journey continues through the Bohemian Gothic Tarot, today I speak of the card that gives me the heebee jeebees.

The Tower would be an easy choice on first glimpse. Sudden, drastic events. Emotional upheavels. Lightning striking the gargoyle through the head, symbolizing a mental breakdown. The tongue hanging open-a panic attack.

Yet I can not fault the card for evoking the feelings it is supposed to.

Justice?

I definitely don’t want to have this guy over for dinner. But he is what he is. The karmic balancer who is objective in his decisions.

Four of Pentacles?

ah, my runner-up.

Honestly, this woman looks like one of those nice, sweet, mature ladies who is really injecting cyanide into pieces of chocolate in a Miss Marple Mystery.

Which brings us to the winner:

*drum roll*

The Sun.

Yes, the Sun.

Now, if this card simply had the horse (symbolizing freedom) and the sun (obviously symbolozing happiness and new beginnings) this would be a very lovely card. But they had to stick that kid into the picture.
And creepy kids are way creepier than creepy adults, and this one looks like he just rode in from The Village of the Damned.

    maybe he’s just a bit hot from all that sun! got a big plush red jacket on and uncomfortable on his sweaty horse! but still happy and free inside. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Haha! That’s a nice way of looking at him. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Or, you’re oddly trusting for a horror writer. hee hee ๐Ÿ˜‰
