Tarot cards have their root in Renaissance Europe and initially had little to do with Mysticism and the Occult. Today we primarily associate them with Fortune Tellers and Card Readers, but originally, they were a card game that used metaphorical imagery about the spiritual ascent of man to higher levels of thought and action. Examine the below image of the Sun card and write an essay on how you think the imagery within it relates to the material we have covered in the course. Think of objects from the book that might relate either visually, thematically or conceptually.
