AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) You will be in the doghouse if you are being. Do not confront situations unless you are sure you have a good understanding of the dilemma. Your desire for excitement and adventure may be expensive.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Control your temper by getting immersed in your work. You may not be too pleased with the actions of those you live with. Consider making pleasure trips or participating in entertainment that will require energy.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Your efforts will be rewarded handsomely. Be careful that you aren't saddled with the responsibilities of others. Take care of matters involving institutions or government agencies.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Too much work and no play will not only result in fatigue and frustration but also loneliness, too. Your added discipline will help you complete the impossible at work. You need to keep everyone on your domestic scene too busy to complain.
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You can make money if you're willing to push your ideas on those in a position to support your efforts. Channel your efforts into achieving your goals. Your emotional reaction will be dependent upon your partner's responsiveness.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Emotional deception is evident. Involvement in fitness clubs will be conducive to engaging romantic connections. You will be able to close any deals successfully.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) Travel should be on your agenda. You will gain a lot if you listen. Keep the promises you've made or you can expect to be in the doghouse.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) Your mate may want to pick a fight but if you're persistent with your affections their anger should dissipate. You must use discretion when talking to others. Gambling should not be an option. Put your energy into self-improvement programs that promise to make you into a better you.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Go to the top if you're being harassed or held back. If you can't trust someone, question the connection. Put your efforts into making constructive improvements to your environment and to your state of mind.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) Be sure not to burn any bridges. Your fight for those less fortunate is not likely to end in sweet victory. Your ability to charm others will put you in the limelight at social functions.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Take time to talk things over. Travel for business or pleasure. Make sure any presentation you have is ready. You can set your goals and make a beeline for your target.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Don't blow situations out of proportion. If you can mix business with pleasure much can be accomplished. Curb any jealous fits if your partner has been flirting with someone else.

It's quite possible, and if you succeed, the results will be very rewarding. But it takes a lot of time, energy, and devotion to do so. You would need another tarot deck to make sure you have all the cards in the set. Although your images for the cards will be different and unique, they still need to represent the same thing. How you want to make those tarot cards depends entirely up to you. You could trying searching for different methods and find the one that suits you best. There have already been some posts related to this topic, so it would be best to check those out as well. In one of these posts some one mentioned that in the end, when you succeed, your tarot deck will be very personal and powerful because it is infused with your own energy. It will give you very good readings, better than any deck you simply purchase. I hope this helps. Blessed be.

it seems fairly time consuming to make a tarot deck, (especially if you are going for authenticity because the Major Arcana is a pain although the Minor Arcana isn't a walk in the park either- but i digress) but once they are drawn (and preferably consecrated/blessed), they should be very effective for future use.

I once made my own deck (even with my poor drawing skills). It worked fairly well for me, and was more connected to me than any decks I had bought before creating those. I didn't use the images of the common decks, but rather created my own images that had an appeasing eye to me.
For me, the meaning of the cards themselves is not highly highly important, as long as you understand what the card is supposed to represent. In different Tarot decks (the old ones more so than the new ones) some of the order of the Major Arcane is different. For instance, the three "Virtues", Temperance, Strength, and Justice, are sometimes in a different order. Other cards within the Major Arcane can be and have been moved around in time, or their meanings slightly altered so that the creator of the deck is satisfied with his/her deck. For instance, in some of the older decks, the Virtue Prudence was added into the Hanged Man card, and to do this they turned the card upside-down and made the rope a snake. This was for various reasons, but I personally think the big one at the time was the heathen theme of the card needing to be gussied up to look more Christian.
If anyone would like some information on this, The Tarot: History, Symbolism, and Divination by Robert Michael Place is a good book to check out.
If you decide to make your own deck, feel free to make it how you will, using whatever symbols or anything else you like. The cards simply need to include certain ideas within it that can be used to divinate the future as pieces of a puzzle are used to make up a whole. Whatever ideas/themes you decide to use is on you, because this is, after all, your personal Tarot deck; no one else is going to use it for any purpose. Take your time with them, relax, and have fun doing it. Good luck to you.
