I was reading a blog entry here:
http://blog.lavacocktail.com/2008/09/14/guerilla-tarot.aspx
where the author suggested we try to use tarot for remote influence, with such charming ideas as

…send the Empress into Palin’s neo-cortex and see what happens or The Devil into McCain’s limbic brain to see if there’s a vibrational match. Have the Fool stimulate Karl Rove’s pineal gland and enjoy the show!

So maybe we can blame the conservatives on the liberals LOLOLOL.
Anyway along the way, the article itself said:

I suggest, in order to mature the Tarot deck into the next millenium, that not only all of its characters and symbols, from the Ace of Cups to the King of Pentacles, be infused with our life energy but that they be animated as well, as if they were participating in a cartoon of our own making.

Fwiw (I try to save my ‘comments’ on stuff somewhere), my comment:

I got a kick out of the idea that tarot “be infused with our life energy but that they be animated as well, as if they were participating in a cartoon of our own making.” Tarot is ALREADY exactly that! It’s a concept-map of the experiential universe. (Probably the best work on it is from Crowley and Edwin Steinbrecher, in this regard.) You might wish to consider testing out Steinbrecher’s internal-yoga meditative approach; definitely the cards “map to” and associate with (frankly, whether we want them to or not) the energies in our existing world.
