Tarot timeline in 50 imagines, video 02 The High Priestess

The timeline of the Tarot in 50 imagines is a project I was thinking about, and I have planned and prepared for a while now.
I wanted to create a series of 22 short videos presenting the evolution and the diversity of the design/artwork of the Tarot cards of the so-called Major Arcana.
Although the abundance of the Tarot, respectively Tarot-like Oracles starting from the 20th century is overwhelming, I wanted to keep the videos short and consistent.

The 1st video of the series is The Magician: https://youtu.be/uyTQ4ThlgQU
The 2nd video is The High Priestess: https://youtu.be/Mc7ZBUbZeKc

The traditional interpretation of the card:

Wisdom, faith, fidelity, virtue, duality, self-conscience, purity, protection, inventiveness, meditation, compassion, solitude,
Abuse of knowledge, envy, jealousy, conspiracy, revenge, cruelty, grudge, fears, obsession, gossip, mistake.

  1. this is a fascinating compilation, thank you for taking the time to do it and share the written list. I’d never even heard of the Bellon deck.
    If you have the time this would be a helpful series to post at https://www.thetarotforum.com/index.php There are always new users and good information never goes to waste 😉 Sharyn at Quirkeries

    Thank you very much! I think anybody can share or post my videos, and it is not necessary for me to register on each Tarot site on the internet. I do everything all by myself and my days also have only 24 hours and my weeks have only seven days. I do my best, but I can not do everything. Any support and help are appreciated.
