Welcome one and Welcome all to this very special Tarot Blog Hop!, I started thinking about this way back on 8 January 2018 (and updated it on 31st January 2018 and then again on 13th February 2018), I started doing these back in March 2016, and I have never looked back!
This month we’re celebrating in style as it’s the 50th post. There has been a vast range of different topics over the last 49 posts, and each Wrangler has brought their own unique style, flair, charm and let’s not forget chaos, insanity and cats… lots and lots of cats…

Tarot: The Musical – 2018
“… So, Come Up to the Lab and See What’s on the Slab… I see you Shiver with antic…i…pation…” Dr. F. N. Furter
Yes! It’s time to dawn your mask, let that cape bellow; This month we’re taking to the stage… If you hadn’t already guessed it, we have a musical theme to this hop; naturally my instinct was to break out my copies of Singin’ in the Rain, Rocky Horror Picture Show and Grease, but then what about Chicago, Wizard of Oz and West Side Story? Dare we resurrect Annie or Sweeny Todd? Do you have a habit for Sister Act?
As this is the 50th post, I’d like you to throw open the switches, chop up the dentist, step up the reactor three more points and slide down that banister, in true Magenta style… Unleash your inner Gleek and stand on the balcony and sing for forgiveness as you explore your relationship with Tarot and Music…
Below are some suggestions for how you can do this…
- Do certain songs or musicals represent your decks, if so which ones and how?
- Does music inspire your work with the tarot, what songs and how are you inspired?
- If Tarot: The Musical were a thing, what songs do you feel represent the major card and minor suits?
- Using the Musical Scale (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scale_(music)) design a tarot spread and then either blind shuffle scan or buddy up (if your brave) to test it out and see if it works for you.
IMPORTANT NOTE: As is often the case with the Hops, our Muses/Guides/ancestors have other ideas. So, provided you are staying within the theme and using the Tarot in relation to that – then I am open and more than happy to let the words be your guide.
