Soundtrack Through The Arcana - The Moon

When I first started this series (too damn long ago) there were some cards that I immediately knew how to associate. The Moon was one of those cards. I picked Running With The Wolves in the first week I conceived of this series and my mind hasn't been swayed away since.

Soundtrack Through The Arcana - The Star

After the rubbly, dusty destruction of The Tower, The Star makes its appearance as a reminder that not all hope is lost. The song I've chosen is really beautiful to me.
