Ace of Cups: Otters! Daww.

My last Ace tarot card! I feel somewhat accomplished.  Granted, as of now I’m technically only about 60% done this tarot deck, but.. wait..


I’m only 60% done this deck?

You’re kidding me, right? 

How did I let this happen? How did I become so slow? Will I ever finish this project? Oh gawd, I am never going to finish this thing, am I?!

What was I thinking?!?!

Oh, man. Oh, man. Whew.

I’m better now.

Actually I really did love painting the Ace of Cups. I chose otters for their joyous nature and playfulness. (And it didn’t hurt that they are practically the cutest things on the planet.) Ultimately I decided on two otters because of the social aspect of the Ace of Cups. This tarot reminds me a touch of the Lovers, but is more like the spark of possibility, the start of what could be, be it friendship or romance. The clam became my symbol for the cup and the otters share it between them simply out of the compassion they’ve found with each other.

And yes I do plan to finish this deck, goshdarnit. It will happen!


About Jo @ Rainbow of Crazy

My username came from that very random day several years ago when I was told that I was a "walking rainbow of crazy... twinkling with the spectrum of a thousand different colours." That name makes me smile to this day and will always remain with me!

  1. I absolutely love this one. It is SO cute, and so full of the joy and optimism of the Ace of Cups. Also, I can’t believe you are already 60% done with this deck! You’ve already painted ~47 cards? That’s freaking amazing. 😀
