THE TAROT OF ROSES
The tarot of roses is an ongoing project by Alice Carrier. A tarot deck told in tattoos, inspired by the magic, folklore, and enduring beauty of the rose. As each card is designed, it is offered as a black and grey tattoo. When the deck is completed, it will be assembled and published along with a book. Originals are not for sale. Please visit booking page to inquire about appointments.
This is a card about pleasure, reception, and fulfillment! The vessels pour forth with the contents of your wishes! The energy of this is one of continuing, cascading change, and the slippery flow of water present in this card can overwhelm- here come all your blessings! Try and catch them! It may feel like it’s impossible to contain all that’s being offered. Remember your heart is a vessel- both a container for and a tool to navigate the sea of love being poured out in front of you.
NINE OF BLOSSOMS
Allow self punishment to evolve into self discipline. Here at the nine of blossoms, we’re celebrating the cycle of successes brought through the suit so far. The challenge of receiving blessings lies in finding ourselves present enough to enjoy them. Without present moment engagement, the bounty is lost- blossoms are, after all- ephemeral. Where are you when you’re not present? Do you drag yourself back to the loops and holding patterns of the cycle of 8s? Do you fly forward to the sometimes overwhelming options of the 10s? Here in the nine, take a breath in. Allow yourself to fill your lungs completely with air that belongs to you, that nobody can control. Do you hold guilt in your body for breathing air? Consider allowing the same grace to all the other needs your body bestows upon you. Receive all the love and bounty your life has to offer, remembering that it’s a resource we all share as naturally as the air we breathe- and to receive that love is to trust yourself to give it back out with the same quality.
this will need multiple sessions and a larger placement area, please include a photo when inquiring
