Tarot is a site of transference between art and literature. The images in many tarot cards represent various mythological and religious stories. For instance, Strength in the Visconti-Sforza deck draws upon the myth of Hercules and the Nemean lion, and the four creatures in the Rider-Waite-Smith Wheel of Fortune were previously seen in the Books of Revelations and Ezekiel. Tarot can also be used as inspiration for writing new stories. There are a large number of tarot spreads for characterization, narrative development, enhancing the environment, and much more. I’ve drawn upon Corinne Kenner’s Tarot for Writers as well as created original spreads when designing my tarot writing workshops. I’ve compiled a list of essential books to begin--or continue--your journey into tarot fiction:
