Meet Kate O’Hara, another awesome artist featured in the upcoming Cosmos show! Kate is a freelance illustrator currently living in Reno, Nevada.

For the COSMOS Tarot & Oracle Deck, Kate illustrated a piece for the constellation Lepus. In the deck, it represents the Two Card and is an Air Element.
End of Naivety
Lepus is the rabbit often associated with the myth of Orion. His hunting dogs pursue Lepus across the night sky in an endless chase. Rabbits represent swiftness, agility, and naivety. They were often considered one of the most elusive prey, and therefore were prized hunting quarry for nobles in ancient times.
This card depicts Lepus caught in the jaws of one of Orion’s hunting dogs. In a reading, this card represents the end of innocence and an introduction to the realities of the world. It may manifest itself through personal trials, “coming of age” experiences, or in an elusive truth being revealed at last.
Reversed, Lepus indicates a particularly rocky learning experience. A sense of perspective may be gained regardless of whether the lessons came as a surprise, through hardship, or through failure.
