In ancient times, Scorpio was associated with the planet Mars. However, after Pluto was discovered in 1930, it became associated with Scorpio instead.
Scorpio is associated with three different animals: the scorpion, the snake, and the eagle. The snake and eagle are related to the nearby constellations of Ophiuchus and Aquila. Scorpio is also associated with the Greek deity Artemis, who is said to have created the constellation Scorpius.

Michaël Bellon – The Major Arcane of Tarot

Michaël Bellon's Tarot 1 The Magician

This author continues to be fascinated by artistic symbolism. For an artist there are many ways to depart from realism, which is a style, but also from reality, which is a aspect of life. An artist may want to escape from reality, such as in fantasy art, or he may want to transcend reality or discover a deeper reality, which is the domain of symbolism. I chose to include Michaël Bellon’s art in this abstract artists gallery because of the way he combines geometric abstraction with the mystique of symbolism. While geometric abstraction (compare Mondrian, Malevich) seems to be the domain of the cool, analytic mind, with which symbolic mysticism seems to be at variance, but not in the art work of Michaël Bellon.

Baphomet Tarot a.k.a. the H.R. Giger Tarot

Baphomet - H.R. Giger Tarot

The set is Taschen’s reworking of Giger & Akron’s Baphomet Tarot der Unterwelt set from 1994, and I recall this being one of the last things Taschen created with Giger after spending the previous decade producing a run of books, diaries and posters featuring his paintings. Inside a box you find a set of 22 oversize Tarot trumps presenting some of Giger’s works against metallic silver surrounds. Read more Baphomet Tarot a.k.a. the H.R. Giger Tarot
