Yes, I’m finally making a page for my upcoming Tarot deck – and I’ve named it!
“Millennial Mystic” started out as a joke name for this Tarot deck, a comment on how I was embracing millennial styles and attitudes for the illustrations. I was also tuning into the magic and mysticism of millennial spirituality.
But after some discussion (partly in a YouTube video comment of all things!), I realized that young people around my age might actually really connect with a millennial-magic-themed deck. I started to take it seriously, and to embrace the style I was already heading for.
Bring on the man-buns, anime eyes, and endless Himalayan salt lamps. We’re entering the world of Millennial Mysticism and exploring it through the imagery of the Tarot.
This is gonna be a long-term project (it’s taken me week just to put together a few cards), but I am confident that it will be a good one. 🙂 Stay tuned for updates about the project – and, when the time comes, how to pre-order!
