All the world’s a stage…
You’re a casting director.
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to cast the court cards from your Tarot deck as the characters in your favourite book, play, movie, tv drama or sitcom.
Westside Story, The Nutcracker, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Ru Paul’s Drag Show, The Flinstones, Jumanji, Jane Eyre, The Walking Dead, Ocean’s Eleven, Coronation Street, Wuthering Heights or something completely different
Now you’re a music scout, putting together a band – choose your band members for
A Rock Band – The Screaming Court Jesters
A Pop Band – The Elementals
A Rap Band – Li’l Pips
A String Quartet – Dignified
A Country and Western Band – Hermit and the Yee Ha Fools
Another music genre band of your choosing
Have fun with this, the last four exercises have deepened your friendship with the court cards, and I bet your readings will come alive with these personalities.
P.S. It’s not so daft casting a movie or a band with court cards The Game of Thrones Tarot by Liz Dean shown below was ingeniously peopled by the characters from Game of Thrones
I’d love to hear about your bands, your movies, novels and TV shows – let me know about them in the comments below if you feel moved to share.
