Rosanne Cash The Wheel Video (How Many Rider-Waite Images Can You Spot?)

Rosanne Cash was on Good Morning America today (link) talking about her memoir Composed (Viking Adult ISBN 13: 9781410431905), sharing with George Stephanopolous about her brain surgery and how it changed her perception of music. (Rosanne will also be on NPR's Diane Rehm show later today to discuss her memoir).

One thing I find especially fascinating about this songstress is her video The Wheel, an enactment of various Tarot cards.

How many Rider-Waite Tarot images can you spot in the video? Do share!

Cool, huh?

    There would be over 20 references to Tarot card imagery. Some imagery is subtle such as the 9 of Swords, Ace of Wands, The Hierophant, the Ace of Pentacles and Temperance, amongst others. However some are so beautifully done. My favourites are the 4 of Swords, the 2 of Wands, the 2 of Swords, the 4 of Wands, the 6 of Wands, the 6 of Cups, the 6 of Pentacles, the Queen of Cups, The Hanged Man, the 2 of Cups, the 5 of Cups, the 5 of Swords and the 10 of Pentacles.

    Isn’t this fun, guys? :oD
    The opening scene–I wonder if that’s a reference to the 9 of Swords? And the falcon flying off the arm…I took that as a nod to the 9 of Pentacles. I see them under the canopy as the 4 of Wands, not the Lovers (although my 11-year-old disagrees!).
    I would say the 2 of Cups when they were drinking BUT it only showed ONE cup, so I shan’t… I don’t think anyone mentioned the Queen of Pentacles (towards the end, where she gets up out of the chair that has a large pentacle to the right–when the video is in color).
    I think those scales were the 6 of Pentacles, not Justice…
    And don’t forget The Wheel…the actual name of the song! ;o)
