Tarot Cards

Have dabbled in Tarot over the years.
The Universe is a painting by Lady Frieda Harris. It was one of an entire set of paintings created with the instruction of the occultist Aleister Crowley for his Thoth Tarot Deck and Book of Thoth: A Short Essay of the Tarot of the Egyptians. Their colaboration was supposed to be a six month project to update symbolism of established Tarot imagery, most commonly known from the Rider-Waite-Smith Deck, but the richness of the new project ended up taking five years to complete. Many of the works she had to repaint as many as eight times to satisfy his vision. This is the set I own andI love this card. To me it represents that an individual has become all they can be and they shine bright...good Karma..

This card however I think is horrible and is a fantastic representation of destruction in ones life..scares me a bit..came up once in line with a few other negative cards and things eventually did not bear to well for the person...
