Adachi - Lust - XI by oneoftwo Adachi - Lust - XI by oneoftwo
So to begin with… how to read this card. The appearance of Lust is going to indicate we are dealing with the realm of passion, energy and drive. For those of you who speak Astrology, this card corresponds to Leo. This is a card of going forth, of feeling things, of being moved. It may, indeed, represent sexual lust – the kind of desire that comes from deeply wanting another person, the kind of desire that will propel us forward to try harder, do more, strive to do something spectacular to catch the attention of the person we crave. But it can also represent a more general ‘lust for life’. Rather than meaning the kind of excitement we might feel when we wake up refreshed whilst on holiday and we feel ready to seize the day, this is the kind of deeply felt lust for life that comes from doing the thing you were born to do, from being at the place are meant to be, surrounded by yourpeople.

I wanted to play around with the Thoth deck interpretation of the Lust card and I had a bit of trouble with it. After an hour or so of fighting the design between the beast[link] tand the harlot I decided to change the roles for Mr.Adachi here. I had fun with it, though I think playing with the Jester/Fool card would have been better in the long run.

Comments/Reblogs appreciated!

Great integration of Adachi into his arcana! I love how colorful and balanced it is, and it seems very very well thought out (I think Adachi gives a more meaningful stance as the harlot instead of the beast on the card, although he works both ways)! You really portrayed the negative feeling he gives to the meaning of the arcana.
