my first card of the month of November was the Tower. it's not a sweet card to draw, for sure, and I found some good images to represent the chaos of it.
I laid out all the collage pieces and took a photo (above), but when I went to glue the elements down things got shifted and I couldn't shift them back. I liked the composition above much better.
the way it turned out seemed to have a bit of disconnect with the woman and the tower. the eye didn't move freely with the image as a whole and got stuck where her hand is. movement is much better in the unglued version! I had an inward chuckle that this spread was giving me trouble, and fixed it a bit with fire images.

I also like that the woman in the fetal position in the image has a soft ball of yarn. to me that tells me that what is happening is for the better in the long run; that I will come to the end of this phase stronger from it. read about the Tower card here.
I worked today with the Page of Cups. for some reason I felt the energy of my son, Winter-Orion, for this card. Winter is in the spirit dimension now, but he was very creative and intuitive and this is the energy for the card. I thought about using a photo of him for this, but realized it might get in the way of knowing the card better instead of always relating it to Winter. again, I chose the images that spoke to me and just created without too much thought.
and the end result has become another favorite;
