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.

However, when we examine the Odyssey, with […]

The Vodoun Spirit Oil on wood, 48 inches by 24 inches, 2014 While on a visit to Haiti in the late 1980’s, I happened to be in a market selling locally carved wooden images of Vodoun deities and animals.  As is typical, all were painted in brilliant colors, except for one which really stood out.
