Sun Enters Leo Tarot Strength and Bicameral Theory


Tarot Strength Bicameral Theory Is strength taking 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 examine the Odyssey, with […]

Cryptic Sphinx. A Mythological Being From Ancient Greece Relevant in the Perpetual Present


Cryptic Sphinx The cryptic sphinx epitomizes awareness of a possible  event. Symptomatic of hazard, implying an appearance of a new situation or enterprise, she is the enigmatic unknown of the unrevealed future. We are not initially cognizant of consequences resulting from our engagement in her speculative opportunity. The answer to her riddle will be through our life journey, a voyage of opportunity revealing through oracular revelation the interpretation of her initial cryptic emergence. Mystery is energy and when the sphinx loses her mystery she dies.  In the back ground is written the riddle of the Sphinx, in jumbled up Greek […]

Tarot Hierophant, Appearance of Awareness


Hierophant Major Arcana Tarot Divination Card Hierophant major arcana tarot card represents a quality within us that registers an awareness of phenomenon. It is not the elucidation of the phenomenon but the bringing to our attention that there is something of which we are not cognizant. Admitting we are in the dark about a subject is our door to learning about it. Overcoming fear to enter the dark is our next step on the path to cognition of the paradox. See Tarot Hermit and Tarot Devil In the foreground of the card the scroll of life unfolds and as it does so the […]

Buy Original Painting from Saatchi Art I originally finished The Odyssey in 2008 but then reworked it in the fall of 2011 for my show “God Factory”. In the Odyssey one witnesses a move into human consciousness, a consciousness that is not present in the Iliad. The Odyssey shows man becoming accountable and introspective,  human traits not encountered in the Iliad. Philosophy Behind the Painting The Odyssey I believe is the greatest story ever told because it is  […]
