Sun Scorpio Tarot Death


Sun Scorpio, Tarot Death Tarot Death, Sun Scorpio, illustrates the cycle of life that has little regard for individuality and is associated with the astrological sign of Scorpio. There is no death, only change.  We do not die, we move into another realm. There is no death, only transformation.  There are no ends only points on the circumference of a circle.

A more appropriate word for Atu 13 is Transformation because the card is as much […]

Sun Enters Leo Tarot Strength


Leo Tarot Card Strength Leo, tarot card Strength. Is strength accepting the fruit, or refusing the fruit? As an example of a bicameral archetype for this card, Achilles is opportune because of his reactionary fixed  automatic responses to phenomena.  We should note however that his character expresses wrath and anger but not hate. When presented with a phenomena outside of himself, Achilles responds to voices from within himself. He is, to all intense and purposes, a puppet  animated and manipulated by the strings of hallucinating voices of ancestors and Gods. These automatic responses are recurrent throughout the Iliad. However, when we […]

Sun Enters Gemini, Tarot Card Lovers


Sun Enters Gemini, Tarot Card Lovers Gemini Sun tarot card Lovers represents  the duality of our brain on the point of becoming conscious. The duality of the brain is illustrated by the union of the Maiden and the Serpent. The figure descending from the sky is the appearance of human consciousness, self awareness. Inspiration for my depiction of the Lovers card came from Paolo Uccello’s  painting of Saint George and the Dragon. On first view, of Paolo Uccello’s painting it appears the male hero is liberating the maiden from the dragon.  However, on closer scrutiny,  it can be seen that the maiden holds and […]
