Tarot in Music: Major Arcana

For the past three days, I have meditated and opened myself to divine guidance in choosing the songs lined up in this playlist. Now that it’s done, I’m excited to continue with the Minor Arcana, after releasing and digesting all this, of course!

This project is meant to connect the listener to some key understandings and discoveries about the underlying Truths about each card. There are many visions of this Truth, and I hope this results in more Tarot artists compiling their own playlists.

This idea was inspired by a project I witnessed in 2008 associated with Pantheacon called “The Living Oracle” where practitioners creatively portray the cards and channelling a unique message for the year ahead. The practitioners choose the songs themselves. I wanted to give credit where credit is due (for more info on this Craft Fest, check out: https://pantheacon.com/wordpress/).

Now, on with the music!
