Fraternity

Today, the Gay Tarot graces us with another card from the Major Arcana.  This deck was created by Lee Bursten, illustrated by Antonella Platano and published by Lo Scarabeo.

The renamed Wheel of Life shows six men of different ages, appearance and social status.  Nevertheless, the message is that they are all joined by their shared outlook on life and sexuality.  With hands meeting at the centre of the wheel, they express their commonality, their brotherhood despite apparent differences.  No matter where they find themselves on the Wheel of Life they know that, through connecting with this fraternity, they will find support and a calm base.


I am grateful for the bonds that link me with people despite our differences in location, age, occupation and gender.
