Tarot Music



Being a child of the '60s, and being greatly influenced by my older brother's taste in music, I had Tarot symbolism around me before I even knew what tarot was.

Like many people of my generation I first saw "The Hermit" inside a Led Zeppelin album.

One of the albums I adore from that era (that was inspired by imagery from the Tarot) is Steve Hackett's "Voyage Of The Acolyte". Check out the following Youtube link (particularly "the hands of the priestess" and "the hermit")
