Ludy Lescot Tarot, created by Ludy Lescot and with illustrations by Patrizio Evangelisti (Lo Scarabeo 2011) we meet the Eight of Wands.
A female figure with billowing hair and dress seems to almost fly up the stairs, as if drawn by the full moon rising above. She leaves behind a sepulchre filled with skulls. Is she a vampire rushing off to find sustenance at the throat of some unsuspecting human? Or perhaps a revenant being called up by a necromancer? In either case, someone is in a hurry to get something done. Her dress seems to be coming apart at the seams, though, perhaps indicating that more haste equals less speed.
I'm hoping that wont' be the case for me today - I really have to get moving on my essay, even if it doesn't have to be in for another few weeks.
I am grateful to not be hard-pressed by a deadline.
