There are 22 experiences needed to have for an entire spiritual awakening and they are known as “archetypes”… and these were written by the Mind of the Galaxy long before we were ever created. Thoth-Hermes created the 22 major Arcana of the Tarot to have a synchronistic resonance with the cosmic template that sustains the personal holographic matrix.

The Galactic Superwave Tarot

  2. 2. First published in 2008 by The Crosscircle Group 234 South Street Windham, NY 12496 Copyright © 2008 by Bryan Ivan Colmer Cover design by Hugh Colmer Art by Hugh Colmer All rights reserved.

  3. 3. AcknowledgmentsThere are many who I would like to thank for their help and support as I worked on thisbook. Some helped directly, some merely inspired me by the work they have done beforeme. My journey probably began with the first Tarot deck I was given, which was AleisterCrowley’s “Book of Thoth.” I received it because of my obsession with art, mythology andsymbolism. Crowley had persuaded Lady Frieda Harris to paint a tarot deck according tohis magical philosophy. I wonder if she anticipated that it would take her four years to ac-complish this tour de force. I certainly didn’t think it would take me five years to create theart and text for “The Galactic SuperWave tarot.” Manley P. Hall’s, “Analysis of Tarot Cards,”relates that after the destruction of the Serapeum in Alexandria, the priests saved the Bookof Thoth, (the Tarot) from the burning library. The priests used large images of the 22 ma-jor arcana as a way to teach the secrets of life and death to the spiritual aspirant. Althoughsome dispute this as a fact it inspired me to create large paintings of the Tarot with the sameintention.If Rachel Pollack, author, artist, teacher, lecturer, poet, and leader of workshops in the Tarotfield had not seen my art I would not have even considered creating another Tarot deck. Butit was Faith Javane and Dusty Bunker’s book, “Numerology and the Divine Triangle” thatgave me my ‘divine’ inspiration to continue. It was a great relief to find a synthesis of eso-teric numerology, astrology and the Tarot in one book. Each of the numbers from 1 to 78is explained as a temporary number vibration, in terms of its astrological correspondenceand in terms of its Tarot symbolism. “Numerology and the Divine Triangle” is the book towhich all books on the subject will be compared from now on. I am thankful to RosemaryEllen Guiley’s “The Mystical Tarot,” which introduced me to all the possible theories of theorigins of the Tarot for she, like me, enjoys solving any mystery. Just when things becamereally tough my sci-fi scriptwriter cousin (Godz Garden epic) JJ Diambrini-Palazzii helpedme keep the text lean and mean. I’m deeply grateful to Olive Fadda for guiding me throughthose dark days when I felt like giving up. What a pleasure it was to see five years of my workfinally take form under her editorial guidance. The final imprimatur came from TimothyFreke who, while writing to a tight deadline, took the time to let me know that he reallyappreciated the wonderful detail in the images and would very much endorse the cards.And last but not least my wife Carol was divinely guided to expose me to the latest messagefrom the universe on any particular day. Without her steadfast support this book would notexist.
  4. 4. ABOUT THE AUTHORJust in time for the ‘great changes’ prophesized by the Mayan Calendar andthe Tarot, Hugh Colmer, artist and philosopher, has completed his “OpusMagnum” on the subject. The Tarot belongs to the same iconographic tradi-tion as Egyptian hieroglyphics and is a Perfect Language of Images. Punc-tuated with 78 stunning images replete with ancient symbolism “The Galac-tic Super Wave Tarot” delves into the mystery of a greater unseen “Power,”that not only exists, but controls the everything of who and what we are.Hugh possesses an array of talents that have led him from agent/producer ofart and photography to the investigation of comparative myth and religion.Inspired by his initial searches, he co-wrote a novel with Anthony Masters in1995 called “Hidden Gods: The Doorway,” wherein a news photographer ison an urgent quest to find the secrets of Atlantis encoded into the Great Pyra-mid.During Hugh’s examination of myth and religion, he realized that the Crossand the Circle were the most profound symbols of all time and so inspired himto register The Crosscircle Group to publish books and writings on spiritual‘Truth.’ His core inspiration and commitment is to share the wisdom of theancients, like that found in the ‘Book of Thoth’ and its subsequent incarnationsas the Tarot. Like those who were part of the Knights Templar, he is dedicatedto uncovering and sharing the Truth of the Ages, which is the raison d’etre forthe art and text he created for “The Galactic SuperWave Tarot.” Hugh and his wife Carol run a spiritual retreat center in Windham, NY.
  5. 5. The Power Of Oracles: The TarotO racles commune with the universe and are as relevant as they ever were for the oracle is where the individual soul communes with the Universal Soul.. Whereas logic speaks to the logical left side of our brain, oracles communicate through symbol and image, directly to the in-tuitive right-side of the brain. We are overwhelmed with media input. We need to attain equanimityby stimulating and using the artistic/symbolic right-side of the brain which will give balance to life.Oracle systems like the Tarot and I Ching are recommended by Carl Jung who worked extensivelywith them. Write the results down in your Journal regularly, By doing so, you enhance your intuitionand place yourself in direct communion with Universal Consciousness.T he Tarot is a symbolic picture book considered to be a spiritual language of ‘Ageless Wisdom’. Sacred symbolism has been a bridge from the known to the unknown and vice versa. It has beenthe human tool used to try to explain the unknowable. In the process of creating these particular im-ages I have been influenced by the Golden Dawn adepts who used the major arcana as pathways intothe mind, rather than as a means of divination. Like Aleister Crowley’s Tarot, this deck incorporatessymbolism from Hindu, Egyptian, Greek, Christian, and Eastern religions. I have used unusual im-agery in this book because I have no doubt that the majority of myths and religions have a commonorigin. Colonel James Churchward expounds on this idea in his book “The Sacred Symbols of Mu” inwhich he discusses the Sacred Inspired Writings of Mu. (Lemuria) including: The teachings of Thoth,Osiris, Moses, and Jesus. He notes how Moses condensed the forty-two questions of the Osirian Mys-teries into the Ten Commandments and how Jesus condensed the texts to suit the language of his day.T his Tarot is more universal than many contemporary decks because it represents more than one particular philosophical point of view; most other decks only focus on one. This Tarot, offers in-sights and keys to a system of transformation that is attuned to the cosmic energies surrounding us atthis time. It is encoded with symbolism of the Great Celestial Conjunction. Quiet meditation on eachof the cards will awaken within each person, personal insights to support the transformation that musttake place within each soul. The 22 Major Arcana (Secrets) relate to the “universal principles” of lifeand “archetypal” personality types. Twelve cards represent the signs of the zodiac and ten represent theplanets in our solar system. They are multi-dimensional as they portray the gods and goddesses frommany civilizations representing different states of consciousness.T he less significant other fifty-six cards, called the “Minor Arcana,” are divided into four suits: Wands and Swords (masculine) and Cups and Pentacles (feminine) and have correspondenceswith numerology and the ten periods (Decans) of astrology as they affect your daily life. Carl Jung,founder of analytical psychology, equated the human mind with the minor arcana’s four functions;thinking, feeling, sensation and intuition. Jung defined the unconscious mind as both collective andindividual.W hen you meditate on a Tarot image you will sense an invisible vibration from its symbolic im- ages. The Tarot is the home of your psyche. Its symbolic images activate and speak to a deepintuitive part of yourself, which the logical, conscious mind cannot recognize. This part of you isknown as the subconscious inner self whose deep, highly personal feelings and qualities provide the
  6. 6. motivation behind your actions and reactions. The subconscious provides you with your energy for lifeand often gives inspiration and feeds a sense of purpose. The subconscious is that part of you which isin tune with the real energy of the world – the energy that created and sustains the world. The conscious part of ourselves is often described as the ego. It provides you with the important abili-ties of logic, reason and judgment. The conscious mind is the filter through which your subconsciousself is expressed in the world. The conscious mind helps you to be ‘present’ in the everyday physicalworld and to interact with the experiences and people in it. It also helps give form to the intuitive im-pressions, feelings and creative urges, which arise from the subconscious. The Subconscious and theConscious minds are often described as your Right (Intuitive/Creative) and Left (Logic/Language)brains. Tarot Cards transmit to the conscious (left brain) mind through the images and symbols by pro-viding a necessary infrastructure. The conscious mind views the images on any given card and then ac-cesses all previous left-brain logic such as meanings assigned to the symbols, the card’s place within thespread, etc. However, logic does not value the intuitive, deeper meanings within the cards. The intuitiveright-brain during the meditative process can access the higher knowledge and this is the real purposeof studying the cards. It is to the unlimited area of our minds that the symbols on the Tarot cards speak.The cards are a tool to discover and bring to the surface the subconscious patterns and workings of yourinner worlds. By understanding your deepest motivations and inspirations, you can then work to createin your conscious world the highest potential of your soul. The cards provide a key to access the deepermysteries of our lives. It was from the subconscious level and the ages of studying the inner worlds thatthe ancients originally found an amazing way of developing instinctive, intuitive abilities. A s you immerse yourself in the imagery of the Tarot, you will see that in time you will no longer have to think about the meanings of the cards, for that information will be automatically avail-able. You will have given your logical mind a meaningful structure to concentrate on and therefore itwill no longer try to interfere with your right-brain’s deepening intuitive abilities. This may take sometime, hence the term “patience is a virtue.” It is the first of many virtues you will strengthen and developas you further your spiritual path. As ancient texts declare, “If you would speak with the gods you mustfirst learn the language of the gods.” The Tarot incorporates all the symbolism from the science of theseancient civilizations so it is appropriate to use archetypal images from India, Egypt, and Greece. TheFool, whose designation is zero, is generally portrayed as the wanderer with his bundle and staff. IfCourt de Gebelin is correct in associating the card with Ain Soph, the incomprehensible force in theuniverse, then the Fool would logically be represented as the Super Soul. T he Tarot encodes the macrocosmic and the individual microcosmic as in the Hermetic axiom, “As above. So below.” Every card has a cosmological correspondence like that we are born with.After birth, we attract and repel certain energies, which is why we have cycles of positive and negativerelationships. And because our own actions constantly create karma we have our ups and downs inlife. As long as we remain unaware of these forces we are subject to them. Only we can overcome andtransform them. When we transform the positive and negative energies operating within us we cancontrol our own fate. The world is also subject to the same forces from the cosmos. Everything thathappens on earth is a direct response to the interaction between a cosmic plan and human karma. H.P.Blavatsky (HPB) believed the arcana of the Tarot were keys to the science of the soul which teaches ushow to force the invisible to become visible.
  7. 7. T he term arcana is reminiscent of the spirit of hieroglyphs residing in the inner sanctum of the heart. It is only in the heart that the inner spiritual truth that can transform us. HPB believes thatthe Tarot may be used to create anything, even a new universe. The fact that we question the Tarot as towhether it be a method or a doctrine shows the limitation of our "three dimensional mind," The Tarotrepresents Nature in all its infinite possibilities, and there is in it as in Nature, not one but all potentialmeaning. And these meanings are ever-changing, so the Tarot cannot be specifically this or that. W e are surrounded by false concepts of the world and the Tarot investigates the world as it is and encourages us to accept that without judgment. The Tarot is a summary of the Hermetic Sciences— the Cabala, Alchemy, Astrology, and Magic: all parallel symbolical systems of psychology and metaphysics. All these sciences, attributed to Hermes Trismegistus, or Thoth or Enoch, represent one system of a deep psychological investigation into mans relationship with God, (Universal Consciousness). and to the visible, physical world. A true alchemist spoke of gold in the soul of man which is called the Kingdom of Heaven in the New Testament, and Nirvana in Buddhism. And a true astrologer spoke of constellations and planets in the soul of man, i.e., ofthe qualities of the human soul and its relationship to God and to the world. And when a true Cabalistspoke of Jehovah, Yod, He, Vau and He (IHVH), he was aware that God is in the soul of all forms thatexist. The world, according to Cabalists, consists of four principles forming the One which give formto everything. Every phenomenon consists of (The Word,--Logos or the four letters (I. H. V. H). Thesefour letters have a deep symbolical meaning. The first letter "I" expresses first cause, motion, energy,the second letter, H, expresses, inertia, "not I;" the third, V, the balance of opposites, "form"; and thefourth, H, potential or latent energy. Therefore the study of the law of the four letters, (I. H. V. H). is apowerful way to raise consciousness: for Universal Consciousness (God) is present in everything. TheName of God, the Word or Logos is the origin of the universe. Logos also means Reason; the Word isthe Logos, the Reason of everything. Gnomes, Undines, Sylphs, and Salamanders.
  8. 8. T here is a total correspondence between the Cabala, Alchemy, Magic, and the Tarot. In Alchemy the four elements which constitute the real world are called fire, water, air and earth; these fullycorrespond in significance with (I. H. V. H). In Magic they are expressed as the four spirits: elves (orsalamanders), undines, sylphs and gnomes. The water element of the ancient philosophers metamor-phosed into hydrogen of modern science; the air has become oxygen; the fire, nitrogen; the earth,carbon. Just as visible Nature is populated by an infinite number of living creatures, so, according toParacelsus, the invisible, spiritual counterpart of visible Nature is inhabited by a host of Nature spirits.Paracelsus divided these people of the elements into four distinct groups, which he called gnomes,undines, sylphs, and salamanders. He taught that they were really living entities, many resembling hu-man beings in shape, and inhabiting worlds of their own, unknown to man because our undevelopedsenses were incapable of functioning beyond the limitations of the grosser elements. The civilizationsof Greece, Rome, Egypt, China, and India believed implicitly in satyrs, sprites, and goblins. They popu-lated the sea with mermaids, the rivers and fountains with nymphs, the air with fairies, the fire withLares and Penates, and the earth with fauns, dryads, and hamadryads. These Nature spirits were heldin the highest esteem, and offerings were made to them.O ccasionally, as the result of the sensitiveness of the devotee, they became visible. Many authors wrote concerning them in terms which signify that they had actually seen these inhabitants ofNatures finer realms. A number of authorities are of the opinion that many of the gods worshiped bythe pagans were commanding invisible elementals. As the Greeks placed the letters of their alphabetwith their corresponding numbers upon the various parts of the body of their humanly representedChristos, so too the Tarot cards have an analogy not only in the parts and members of the universe butalso in the divisions of the human body.T he Tarot must be considered (1) as complete hieroglyphs, each representing a distinct principle, law, power, or element in Nature; (2) as the effect of one agent operating upon another; and (3) asvowels and consonants of a philosophic alphabet. The laws governing all phenomena are representedby the symbols upon the Tarot cards, whose numerical values equal the numerical equivalents of thephenomena. As every structure consists of certain elements, so the Tarot represents the componentsof philosophy. Irrespective of the science or philosophy with which the student is working, the Tarotcan be identified with the essentials of his subject according to mathematical and philosophical laws.“An imprisoned person,” writes Eliphas Levi, “with no other book than the Tarot, if he knew how to useit, could in a few years acquire universal knowledge, and would be able to speak on all subjects withunequalled learning and inexhaustible eloquence. “ (See Transcendental Magic.)T he Tarot has four suits—wands, cups, swords and pentacles. Thus every suit represents one of the elements, and controls one class of spirits . The wands are fire or elves (or salamanders); the cupsare water or undines; the swords are air or sylphes; and pentacles, earth or gnomes. In every suit theKing means the first principle or fire; the Queen—the second principle or water; the Prince—the thirdprinciple or air, and the Princess—the fourth principle or earth. The ace means fire; the two means wa-ter; the three, air; the four-earth. Then again the four-is the first principle, the five the second etc.W hen ‘Divine Truth’ in each card is assimilated into consciousness a transformation within the essence of our soul triggers a release of specific hormones within the ductless glands that secrete
  9. 9. onto the surface of our body rather than through a duct. The resulting biophysical changes producehigher vibrations in the cell structures throughout the entire body. Its through raising the conscious-ness of the cells that Universal Consciousness becomes the guiding force of your bio-computer. T he Galactic SuperWave Tarot evolved over a period of five years. and I considered the Tarot to be just a unique and divinely inspired source of guidance. Then I read it is also a profound body ofcosmic knowledge sequentially created as an individual guide for attaining Sri Aurobindo’s Supra-mental state in this lifetime. The Galactic SuperWave Tarot shares Sri Aurobindos philosophy that oursouls are destined to take form in a lighter spiritual body. All sages agree that to be liberated one mustnot identify with the body-mind complex. There is only one Mind and that is the Universal Mind. Wethink our mind is real but it is just a cacophony of thoughts. God stirs in the silence of the heart whenthe physical mind is at rest. When the power is eliminated from our thoughts the transition begins TheMind dissolves the false mind into the Universal Mind. J oe Ivory, in an article on the Mystical Tarot, noted that the lectures of Carl Jung given during his early European tours around the turn of the century taught that the Major Arcana (first 22 trumpcards) contained hidden symbolism and instructions on how, what his contemporary, Sri Aurobindocalled, the ‘Supramental’ consciousness-force, can spark a biochemical process that replicates the origi-nal Supramental cell which has been dormant since the beginning of evolution. As the Greeks placedthe letters of their alphabet—with their corresponding numbers—upon the various parts of the bodyof their humanly represented Christos, so the Tarot is also an analogy of the parts of the human body,which is a microcosm of the universe. T arot imagery can change the consciousness of the cells in the human body which contain clues to our personalities, tastes, and history, independent of genetic codes or brain cells. That is, every-thing that has ever happened to us is recorded in the cells of our body, and remembered —like files in acomputer. Imagine how wonderful it is to share these higher principles of transformation so you mightcommence your journey through the 22 steps of the pure knowledge of the Tarot in your own physicalbody. The Tarot is invaluable when all psycho therapeutic work has failed to determine the next step tobe taken for the souls evolution for the images will identify the karmic challenge and even in the timeframe in which it occurred.
  10. 10. 1. The Magician: Mars and MercuryT o the magician the magical act and imaginative act is one and the same. The magician knows with certainty that for a change to occur he must will it to happen and firmly believethat it will happen. Here it may be noted that magic and religion are akin: both require beliefthat a miracle will occur. The planet Mercury corresponds to the Magician and Mars is assignedto number one. The energies of both planets must combine in order for the Magician to fulfillhis mission in transforming you. Mercury, the primary symbol for the intellect, must conquerthe ego if the heart is to rule the mind. The Magician teaches that if you live your life in selflesslove and service your personality will merge with the soul. But the term magi, or mage, actu-ally comes from ancient Sanskrit and an Assyrian, Babylonian, and Persian term, from ‘mag’ or‘maha,’ and the magi were priests of the sun, priests which is a symbol of the Christos. So thereal magician is a priest. Most importantly, the real magician follows the magic of his innermaha-atman.” ‘Maha’ means ‘great’ in Sanskrit: Maha-atman—great spirit, great soul.Hermes, the Magician, is holding the caduceus with twin serpents wound about a staff, repre-senting the double helix of DNA, the building blocks of life. It is our cells’ store of coded ‘digital’information, and each strand of DNA itself provides the pattern for building a new strand.Many scholars now believe that the caduceus is also an embodiment of our DNA. The Magi-cian has discovered the secret codes to life. He can draw upon his inner strength to make a goala reality for he has at his disposal all the elements and their counterparts: the cup, indicatingwater and imagination; the sword, indicating air and intellect; the pentacle, earth and the body,and the caduceus/wand, fire and will-power. In his lower aspect Hermes mirrors the tricksterin us—thus illustrating that even our best qualities have their shadow side. The Magician rep-resents the powers that you possess to create meaning and purpose in your life. He tells us thatthis creative power is in and around you and always available. He teaches how things work inthe world by understanding the structure underlying its cycles and rhythms.Challenge: Although you are eloquent, charismatic, clever, witty, inventive and persuasive,beware of dominating those around you. Although these qualities are not generally criticized bysociety they are different personalities that need to be unified under the guidance of your innerguru. Your pioneering spirit is in reality a way to avoid facing these layers of illusion and canprevent you from discovering that you are not these personas. Pay attention to everyday life.Remember all the power you possess comes from a higher level. Focus on what you want andeliminate those things, which distract you. You have abused power and you have an overpow-ering ego, which makes you selfish, arrogant, and insensitive. Your inflexibility causes you torow against the tide and sets you up for failure and loneliness. Your lack of willpower confusesyour life’s purpose. Do not use the forces of nature for selfish purposes. You are blocking yourcreative energies. Learn by experimentation – try new things.

  12. 12. 2. The High Priestess: Vulcan/Uranus and the MoonT he High Priestess, Isis, was revered as the “Great Enchantress” who used her wings to transmit the breath of life to Osiris after he was murdered by his evil brother Seth. Isisis wearing the solar disk in between the bull’s horns associated with crossing of the eclipticand Milky Way. The white and black colors of the pillars represent the two opposite sidesof the Milky Way where the ecliptic and Milky Way cross. The dark pillar can be associatedwith the Dark Rift near the Sagittarius-Scorpio nexus while the white pillar can be associ-ated with the Gemini-Taurus nexus. The Sun resides here in between the ‘horns of Taurus’and this is the place where the Sun resides at the Great Celestial Conjunction at the sum-mer solstice in 2012.The number one is masculine and the number two is feminine. Those people that believein God as masculine and reject the feminine aspect of it, are half-atheists, because God ismale-female. So in order for us to be a complete theist we have to understand that we haveto worship not only God as masculine, but the Goddess, the Divine Mother, its feminineaspect, in order to be complete. The moon rules the High Priestess and the number two isruled by Uranus. Vulcan, god of blacksmiths, stokes the fire of determination to ensure thatideas are not extinguished. The High Priestess symbolizes the power of the unconsciousforces in the world that give form and purpose. She has experienced life so she has empathyfor your struggles. This demonstrates that life survives death. By taking on new forms shecan lead to deep wisdom, but she can also lead to madness.Number two makes you acutely conscious of others and as you are socially aware of peopleyour stimulation is derived from them. This makes you a diplomat, go-between, mediatoror peacemaker. Your best service is through your cooperative nature. This key means thatyou intuitively understand the answer to a problem although not always consciously. Youmay well become the power behind the throne. The number two suggests more than one,yet in reality we are all One.Challenge: You should pay a great deal of attention to your health through your eatinghabits so that you have the energy to be of service to others. Seek new and hidden pathsto wisdom. Learn to question the lessons of the unconscious for it does not always lead towisdom. Question how you have divided your world by judging yourself and others. Yourexcessive focus on unimportant details and perfectionism can prevent you from listen-ing to your intuition. This will cause passiveness, weakness, and fear of life. You may beexpressing your emotions in a negative way. You lack self-confidence and are thereforeindecisive and afraid to make decisions. You can be deceitful, two-faced, oversensitive, andeasily depressed if your dreams are thwarted by those close to you.

  14. 14. 3. The Empress: Jupiter and VenusT he Empress, Raja Rajeshwari (Devi), is honored as Queen of Queens. Devi is the life force and all-powerful goddess of the spheres. Her smile gives a feeling of confidence.She is adored and feared, the focus of every conscious and unconscious breath, the lifeforce which unites Brahma, the creator of the universe, the power of Vishnu, who protectsand sustains the universe, and the power of Shiva, the destroyer of all the deities in theuniverse at the end of a kalpa. When Shiva receives permission from Devi He reinstatesthe gods as they were before the dissolution of the universe. Devi has a halo of the-fiveheaded serpent, Ananta Shesha, who does not change at the end of a kalpa. A kalpa is 4.32billion years, a “day (only) of Brahma” or one thousand mahayugas, (scientists estimate theage of the universe at 13.7 billion years). Each kalpa is divided into 14 manvantaras (eachlasting 306,720,000 years). Devi is holding the trishula, a trident that is the emblem of thegod Shiva. The weapon symbolizes the irresistible force of transcendental reality. The threeprongs of the trishula represent Shiva’s three aspects of: creator, preserver, destroyer as wellas the three shakti (powers): will, action and wisdom. Durga, the fearsome aspect of Devi,also brandishes a trishula in one of her seven hands. This Law of Three irepresents a deepequilibrium between forces symbolized in the structures of the Tree of Life. There are threecolumns upon which hang three triangles, and each triangle is made of three spheres. TheLaw of Three is the very structure of the Cabalistic Tree of Life, both within us and outsideof us.The Empress is pure consciousness itself, the knowledge that returns us to the source ofwho you are. She is an aspect of the subconscious mind, ruled by Venus, the main astrologi-cal symbol for our affections and feelings. Venus works in conjunction with Jupiter to in-crease productivity, love, abundance, and fertility. The Empress represents the veil of Maya(illusion). She represents the need to control the cosmic forces that are not controllable andoften represents smothering mothers. She also represents the blood that carries the energyflowing through all living things.Challenge: Your natural talents — acting, social work, counseling and the law — give youa love of life through the pleasure of relationships, entertainment and new experiences butthese talents, if not used properly, can be a diversion from knowing who you really are.Avoid work that confines you as you need to move around to express yourself in order todo your best work enthusiastically. It is important to understand that all emotions stemfrom the pure essence of love. Thus, fear and hate are its opposite. Pity and sentimentalityrepresent perversions, contortions or negations of the love quotient. Do not express youremotions in a negative way because they reinforce negative behavior patterns. As you wantrecognition you tend to exaggerate situations so that friendships may well be superficial.You may try to avoid responsibility and live a life of instant gratification.

  16. 16. 4. The Emperor: Earth and AriesEmperors had the title of God, Deus, or Divus and Popes consider themselves the onlyGod on earth. Jupiter or Zeus is the son of Chronus—god of time and, like the HinduBrahma and the Egyptian Seb he assumes the form of a swan. Popes were called Papain the tradition of the Roman god Jupiter, although Zeus, in the mind of ancient Greekphilosophers, was not the supreme God, and always assumed a sacred name with a zodiacalcorrelation. Emperor Augustus, the first emperor of Rome adopted the sacred name ofAugustus—an Egyptian name for the river Nile—as his predecessor, Julius, had assumedthe name Caesar, the name of the god, Mars. This is a replica of the ancient Hindu kingsand emperors who take a sacred name from their gods. But when we discover that our ownSpirit has to do its own internal work for Self-realization we discover that he is also aspiritual warrior. The Cabala relates Chesed, with the Emperor. That’s why, astrologicallyspeaking, Emperors are ruled by Jupiter.The first Christian emperor, Constantine was both Christian and Pagan and Christianitycombined the two. He claimed to be a descendent of Helen, the female generative prin-ciple. He kept pagan festivals after he formed Christianity and dedicated the Church tothe Sophia on the seven hills of the new Rome. The Roman Pontifex Maximus, the Pope,and the King of the Age is endowed with the holy spirit representing divinity on earth.The Pope adopted the divine right of priest/kings from Rama and controls all religiousceremonies. The message of the Ramayana is to make your heart pure and strong and beconvinced that you are One with God.The Emperor rules the external world that exists outside the conscious elements in the ma-terial world, the unity and order in your life. His God-like ability enables him to discern thetruth in any given situation. It is his wisdom to handle affairs systematically that has placedhim on the throne. His strength gives stability to accept external forces out of our control.True intuition is based on number four. This key indicates that you have the ability for lead-ership and spiritual growth through ideas, experience, higher education, travel, religionand deep philosophical thought. The Emperor governs the need for honesty, fairness andrespect for the rights and freedom of others. He is a solid foundation in times of changeand uncertainty.Challenge: Control your own sensual desires and overcome the tendency to be rigid andinflexible. Examine all external forces that prohibit the fulfillment of your destiny, discard-ing all outgrown comforting myths. Don’t risk stagnation and keep a ceiling on desires,which lead to spiritual or material decline. Prepare for unseen difficulties through careless-ness, impulsive spending and grandiosity. Have compassion for those who you dislike, stoplistening to the head, and listen to the heart. Renunciation leads to joy; attachment bringsdiscontent. Be in the world, but not of it.

  18. 18. 5. Hierophant: Mercury and TaurusT he Hierophant is Moses and is ruled by (Mercury) and Apis the Bull, Taurus. Moses , along with Jehovah, dominates the Torah. He leads the Jews out of slavery, unleashesthe Ten Plagues against Egypt, guides the freed slaves for forty years in the wilderness, car-ries down the Law from Mount Sinai. Hebrew patriarchs were associated with the signs ofthe zodiac. Adam’s son Cain was presided over by Taurus, representing the material mindwhich murders Abel’s spiritual mind. This indicates that Cain did not realize his spiritualSelf. The cross with three bars is the emblem of God, penetrating three worlds in order thatbirth may be given to all the manifestations of universal life.Taurus gives determination and power to the Hierophant – the revealer of sacred mysteriesof the Soul. He is the spiritual guide who unlocks the door of hidden knowledge, and canhelp in the search for inner truth, the meaning of life and realize the soul’s desires. Mercury/Hermes rules number five and represents intelligence, movement and communication, theinner teacher and the inner voice. Sages have always said that ‘Self Realization’ comes whenyou awaken to the awareness of the soul. True inner hearing does not involve spirits, clair-voyance or visions from the astral planes. With the help of Taurus/Mercury, your consciousmind, studies the facts and places them in your subconscious data base which, in a flash ofrealization, sends the analysis back to the conscious mind. This is true intuition based onreason.The Hierophant represents the knowledge of what is right and wrong, beyond what the lawsof society deems appropriate. Each soul’s path is unique and you may be guided to tradi-tional religion, prayer, contemplation and meditation. All ways will take you to the sourceof who you are eventually. Ignore the soul at your peril!Challenge: Assess your spiritual growth and recognize the limitations of fame and glory.Learn to act and not react, and know that you are more than a collection of five senses.Don’t take the meaning of events too literally, be gullible, or over analyze everything beforetaking action. Look for the deeper meaning to the question. Strive for spiritual truth byworking with the practical aspects of life. Be open to meeting a spiritual teacher who guidesyou towards your Real Self, not the ego driven self. This key is a reminder not to stay toogrounded in the material world, as there is a heavy price to pay for deviating from the pathof spiritual truth.

  20. 20. 6. The Lovers: Gemini and VenusT he Lover, Adonis, must make a decision between Aphrodite exposing her breasts (Vice) and Persephone hiding her breasts (Virtue). Cupid hovers over Adonis aiming his ar-row at Aphrodite. Cupid aiming his arrow at Aphrodite is interchangeable with Sagittarius,the archer, aiming his arrow at the heart of the galaxy. Sagittarius points to the GalacticCenter to direct us to the heart of our spirituality. The eagle, Scorpio’s higher form, soarsabove Persephone. The constellations of Sagittarius and Scorpio reside on opposite sides ofthe heart of the Galactic Center from which the Milky Way is formed.The Hindu star design formed of two opposed interlocking triangles symbolizes Siva/Shakti, the union of masculine and feminine principles. Lovers are a union of oppositesbut complimentary components. Venus seeks to unite the seemingly opposing forces ofGemini into harmony. Venus, as the ruler of six, creates the urge for peace and love withfamily and friends.Love is generally understood as romantic, passionate or as the meeting of a new soul-mate.But, at a deeper level, this key represents personal choices to be made in some sphere of life.This choice is not an easy one, since there are usually too many options. The Lovers key roleis to relax and access inner wisdom, encouraging surrender to the profound energy of Love,even if it seems impractical. To dance on the royal road with your ‘Beloved,’ is the mostpowerful energy of all. This key urges you to feel the life-giving energy of Love for all thosearound you. Pure love is a state of ‘Being.’ All obstacles in life can be overcome throughunconditional love, a force, which is an expression of the soul. Universal love has nothingto do with infatuation, attachment or lust. When unconditional love is experienced there isno separation. Love is the totality of ‘Oneness.’Challenge: It is time to decide between opposing alternatives. Love can be blind! Under-stand that love is a state of being that animates your total being. Don’t be selfish. Likeattracts like. Being self-consumed leaves nothing to give. Love is not bondage but bringsbalance and harmony. Our greatest lessons are learned from the negative patterns mirroredin our lover. Discontent and jealousy create the martyr. Solve your relationship challengesby self-enquiry. The key is to discriminate between the true and the false.

  22. 22. 7 The Chariot: Moon and CancerT he Chariot, Sanskrit – Vahana, Hebrew – Merkhabah, is the vehicle of Light mentioned in the Bible by Ezekiel. “Mer” means Light. “Ka” means Spirit. “Ba” means body. Thebody is often called the chariot for the inner charioteer, the Soul. Contemplation on theChariot guides the divine will of the Soul. The charioteer directs the positive and negativeforces of the black and white sphinxes through his intention to merge the personality withthe Soul. This key falls under the spiritual vibration of number seven, from the Seven daysof Creation to the Seven Seals of Revelation,. The chariot of war is also represented in theMahaharata, the most famous portion of this epic story is called the Bhagavad Gita, whichmeans “The Song of the Lord,” and is a dialogue between Krishna and Arjuna in a charioton a battlefield at the very precipice of the earliest nuclear war. The war symbolizes the psy-chological struggle that the spiritual initiate has to undergo within the mind.The Chariot, ruled by Cancer, provides protection for the spiritual seeker. However, be-ware; Cancers are the masters of the art of passive resistance. The Chariot represents thepower of focused intention and is all about motion, and yet, it is often shown as motionless.On the one hand, the Chariot indicates loyalty and faith and on the other, a motivation tosucceed at any cost. The Chariot stands for the desire for freedom, ambition, the search forparadise lost, or the need for recognition. This key shows a vast amount of skill (steeringthe chariot), but also inexperience (entering an unknown formless world of spirit). On itsmost basic level the Chariot implies inner struggle, and an eventual victory through rigor-ous self-examination.Challenge: The Chariot warns us against being too focused on material gain. Keep yourintent to gain the self-confidence to leap into the void. You are moving too fast. Pull backthe reigns and slow down. Broaden your world view, avoid spinning wheels, and bewareof working too hard with little to show for it. Achieve your goal one step at a time. Donot overestimate your own confidence – rather, take time to gain insight, you have muchto learn. Do not be melancholic and learn to control your opposing emotions. This keygives new motivation or inspiration to solve a stagnant situation. Avoid burnout. You aretoo focused on fame and fortune. Remember Phaethon, who took the reigns of the Sun’schariot against his father’s advice, burnt the world. Take heed of this key or Zeus will sendyou a bolt of lightening to really burn you out. Success can be obtained without the needfor control.

  24. 24. 8. Strength: Saturn and LeoS trength is symbolized by Samson who portrays spiritual strength by opening the lion’s jaws to find secret wisdom of Leo within. The allegory makes Samson a symbol of theSun with Leo powers. Alisteir Crowly renamed this key ‘Lust’ for he knew that at the sum-mer solstice Samson, the Sun, is at its most virile and vainly lusts after Delilah (Virgo), thenext sign of the zodiac in September. When summer ends the sun’s rays or golden locksare cut as it enters into the house of Virgo (Delilah). Virgo’s dominion over Samson isspiritual for she cuts the rays of the Sun, symbolizing Samson’s life force. This key is aboutinner strength of the strong, silent, hero who has the self confidence to know his strengthcomes from GodThe only two numbers that are eternal are zero and eight representing eternal divinity andworldly power. The important message of the Strength key is not to give up and to havethe courage to succeed with unfailing optimism. As long as you feel that you’re in a posi-tion of authority and responsibility, you will do all in your power to justify the confidenceplaced in you. You thrive on adversity and dare to think and act bigger than others wouldnormally dare to. You are a down to earth realist and may be seen as a ‘lion’ of industry,and in the forefront of cutting edge technologies.Challenge: Watch your anger and keep your integrity. Don’t be over ambitious. Like tryingto tame a lion, you might get scratched trying to control a situation that involves someoneelse or your own lower instincts. Your desire for authority is unfulfilled and you may be-come lazy or impetuous which may lead to a lack of confidence. Learn to control yourself.Stop questioning your abilities. Your weaknesses are the worst enemy. Avoid being domi-neering, ruthless and disruptive. Upheaval is a way of life for you. Develop your spiritualnature for if the bottom falls out of your material life you will have self-confidence fromknowing your inner self. Acknowledge the power within you.

  26. 26. 9. The Hermit: Sun and VirgoT he Hermit, represented by the Greek philosopher, Pythagoras, taught the mysteries of Greece, and ancient India which included the magic of numbers, and the heal-ing powers of music. His philosophy demanded purity and self-mastery. Apollo the Sunis assigned to the number nine because it is only by following the first eight keys in themajor arcana that the sun’s intellectual enlightenment is reflected in you. Virgo’s keendiscrimination anchors the goal. Nine is the number of completion of a cycle and thefoundation for the next.The Hermit exemplifies Christ consciousness in physical form. He is the guide to yourinner guru. Physical incarnation is for the sole purpose of aligning Soul with personality.Contemplate what is really important in a life on overload. Mediation can bring order outof chaos by seeing what doesn’t work. This key signifies that it is time to examine whatyou want rather than what others would like you to have. Hermits are rarely understoodfor they walk to the beat of a different drummer, preferring solitude to superficiality.The similarity between Druidism and Pythagoreanism confirms the legend that Pythagorasstudied not only under Eastern but also under Western or Druidic teachers; and that otherbelief, that philosophy came to Greece not only from the East, but also from the Druids.Druids are the priestly hierarchy among the ancient Celts of Britain, Gaul, and Ireland,composed of the three Orders of Druids, Bards, and Ovates. Classical references refer toDruids as possessors of a high wisdom; the very first reference says that Greek philoso-phy came to the Greeks from the Brahmins of India, the Magi of Persia, the Egyptianpriesthood, and the Druids.H.P. Blavatsky stated that Druidism was the one branch of the sacred Mysteries of antiquityin the Western world that had not degenerated; and that during the campaigns of Caesarand his forces in Gaul, three million Gauls were killed and Druidism was virtually wipedout there. It is Caesar who is responsible for the current idea that Druids were barbarousand cruel. Excommunication was their capital punishment. In Gaul in Caesar’s timeDruidism was very highly organized and controlled the whole civilization, a fact Caesaris known to have deliberately understated, for in many respects Gaulish civilization wasmore advanced than Roman.Challenge: Time spent quietly gives access to the same truth as the Hermit. Overcomethe natural tendency to be shy and reserved. Learn to trust despite deep wounds fromthe past, overcome fear of vulnerability and avoid secretiveness. Beware of becoming aPeter Pan, the perennial child who avoids responsibility in life. Discriminate betweenthe essential and the trivial. Learn to listen to your inner voice. Don’t be self-absorbed,selfish, indulgent, or, when crossed, react angrily. Your razor sharp mind is a formidableweapon. High standards create nervous tension, which makes friends uneasy in yourcompany. Try to reach out to people with compassion, understanding and wisdom.

  28. 28. 10. Wheel of Fortune: Jupiter and MarsT he Wheel of Fortune symbolizes the upward and downward cycles of our solar sys- tem, which, according to many legends, has cataclysmic upheavals at the 12,960-yearhalf-point of its 25,920-year zodiacal orbit around the galaxy centre (the Precession of theEquinoxes.) Precession was divided into four distinct ages of 6480 years each. Scorpio isrepresented by an eagle instead of a scorpion, Leo, Taurus, and Aquarius— are the fourfaces mentioned in the Jewish Torah—Ezekiel 1:10 and Revelation 4:7 (TORA). Accordingto the alchemist, Fulcanelli, both of these books in the Bible warn of great changes. We arenow entering Aquarius. The Oroboros (the serpent of light in the heavens eating its owntail) represents the Milky Way Galaxy. The Djed (Polar Axis) in the center of the Oroborosis the bond between Heaven and Earth, evoking geophysical stability at a time of increasedpotential for Earth changes. Moira Timms also reminds us that, “according to the texts ofthe Temple of Horus at Edfu, the Djed revealed its greatest mystery at the ending of oneworld age and the beginning of another.” This image shows two lion-headed sphinxes fac-ing opposite directions, falling on the Leo/Virgo and Aquarius/Pisces equinox axis andcrossed by the Djed pillar marking the galactic center. This shows that Moira Timms hadintuited the correct orientation for the primal Djed and its connection with the Great Crossof the galactic alignment in 2012. Ten (X) represents the forces that can disrupt, destroy, orbless depending on the state of consciousness. Are you prepared for the world to fall apartwhen this happens?The Wheel of Fortune signals a need to understand your inner reality and underscores thecyclical nature of your spiritual growth and development. The winged sphinx is the eter-nal arbiter between the cycles of good and evil. Ten begins a new cycle as it is a repetitionof one, which brings a change in fortune. Here we have the Soul’s power of zero workingthrough One. Jupiter expands the Soul’s spiritual principles. If the wheel of fortune does notturn you will be stuckChallenge: Accept the gift of adversity without struggle for it may be followed by success orfailure. Bad fortune comes with overindulgence. Use previous experiences from other livesto spiritually influence others who do not learn from past mistakes. What is done todayis because of what occurred yesterday and what was done tomorrow will depend on whatoccurred today. Analyze past mistakes and learn from them. Today’s challenges are tomor-row’s opportunities. Do nothing and the universal force will do what’s best for the Soul. Gowith the flow and grow because resistance causes stagnation. Greater satisfaction with lifecomes from living in harmony with the cycles and rhythms of the universe.

  30. 30. 11. Justice: Uranus and LibraJ ustice, symbolized by the greatest of the Egyptian goddesses Maat, judged the souls of the dead with her consort, Thoth, scribe of the ‘Ennead’ and negotiator and settler of dis-putes. He also records every soul who enters the ‘Duat,’ the Underworld and stands by thescales supervising the weighing of the heart of the deceased, reed brush and palette in handready to note the verdict. Sometimes Thoth is depicted in baboon form on top of thosescales. Justice is a karmic law “for every action there is a consequence,” The Aeon of Maat in2012 heralds a new golden age of self-realization. Ask yourself, “Who Am I?” Ma’at personified moral law, order, and truth and was considered as the femininecounterpart of Thoth depicted as the baboon sitting on the apex of the scales. She isoften represented as standing with Thoth in the boat of Ra when the sun god first roseabove the waters of the primeval space of Nut. She is called the daughter of Ra, theeye of Ra, lady of heaven, queen of the earth, and mistress of the Underworld, whoguides the course of the sun. Themis, the Greek goddess of order and justice, whenconjoined with Nemesis and Adrasteia preserves balance by adjusting the cause andeffect of karma. When Zeus became the Supreme God he placed Themis andDike at His side in the Hall of Justice; Themis symbolized ‘Divine Justice’ andDike, portrayed with a staff and balance, human justice. For the Romans, Justitiawas goddess of Justice. She was a virgin living among humans until she becameoverwhelmed by the immorality of mortals and transformed into the constella-tion of Virgo.Libra is the balance amidst constant change. The importance of this key is to stay in thepresent moment with out judging past mistakes and worrying about the future. Libra andUranus, emphasized by master number eleven, represent a balanced life when actions areweighed and measured by the Soul. When the life force is misused dis-ease, accidents, legaldifficulties and impulsive decisions will occur. Saturn’s exaltation of Libra ensures a sense ofjustice and integrity. As Libra is ruled by Venus one must communicate through love. Librarules the organs of detoxification that keeps the body in balance.Challenge. Justice signals that your world is dangerously out of balance and needs adjust-ing. It is important, however, to be aware that most external problems are an externalizedinner conflict. When anger is rarely expressed you explode like a volcano. Don’t escape real-ity in the oblivion of drugs and alcohol. A constant state of anger occurs when knowledgeof Self is denied. Understand that what you dislike in others is a reflection of somethingthat needs to be healed in yourself. Beware of creating negative karma by misuse of power.Selfless service helps you to stay in the eternal Now.

  32. 32. 12. The Cosmic Christ: Jupiter and NeptuneT he Cosmic Christ symbolizes the universal cycles of death and resurrection. The Cross- represents the Great Celestial Conjunction when the Earth Cross of the Zodiac alignswith the Galactic Cross of the Solar zodiac which occurs every 13 or 26,000 years when ourSun aligns with the Galactic Equator at solstices or equinoxes. This key portrays Orpheusas the Sun God liberated in the Milky Way after the predicted Great Celestial Conjunctionin 2012.The Cosmic Christ is an aspect of the Cosmic Over-Soul, meaning that every Soul is a re-flection of the Logos – the cosmic intelligence within everything. This Cosmic Intelligencehas been named God, Christos, Ain Soph, or Parabrahmam. When you understand thatyou are not the personality/body/mind/complex but the spiritual essence of the GalacticCenter, you will experience being, I AM.Neptune represents the deep, dark waters where the negative thoughts geminate to makelife a living hell. Jupiter destroys the layers of illusion created by the false reality of the egothat has been obscured by Neptune. There is no compromising with number 12 for its ei-ther knowing who you are and being liberated or not learning the lessons and constantlycoming back to earth until you do. The soul does what it thinks is right – not what otherstell it to do. When the soul directs the personality you are more self-confident. When youknow that you can accept the challenges you face you are able to say yes to any test thatpresents itself. There are powerful forces ruling life but you are not attached to the outcomebecause you know that the cosmic force from the Galactic Center is the doer.Challenge: The purpose of 12 is to teach you that you have been living a life of delusionand illusion. Break with a past, which is too comfortable and embrace change instead ofthe status quo. Know that this is the moment when the Soul begins to rule your life. As thehigher self is your personal experience of God your inner voice says, “Thy will be done.”You then feel deeply connected to life. It can also mean that you may pass through a difficulttrial because you have lost trust in your intuition. Free yourself from social pressures to besomething you are not. Open yourself to the mysteries of the universe.

  34. 34. 13. Death: Earth and ScorpioS hiva and Pavarti’s dance represents both the destruction and the creation of the uni- verse. Without Parvati, Shiva, (the Absolute), would remain inert, aloof, and inactive. Itis only in association with her that Shiva is able to realize His full potential. Pavarti not onlycomplements Shiva, she completes him.When Scorpio is characterized by a soaring eagle it represents the higher aspect of 13 whichenables self realization through Scorpio’s powers of transformation. The number 13 is sa-cred as it indicates that the soul and the personality are in alignment. Of all the zodiacalsigns, Scorpio has the power to bring about this transformation. Our bodies are made ofearth and contain the everlasting energy of love. When worldly attachments are droppedthere is space for real love to flourish.The reincarnating personality descends from the spiritual realms to be reborn again onearth. Life and death are part of an eternal process, physical life ends in death but the soulnever dies. Death is a revitalizing force for it makes way for the new. It offers an opportunityto replace destructive patterns with constructive ways of doing things. This card is sayingto you: Meet new challenges and cut the ties that bind you to the past. New doors open asnothing is locked in space. The body dies; the essence of the soul goes on.Philosophers regard death as a long sleep. When you wake up you are in a new body. Thesolution for escaping from the cycle of birth and death is to pay off all karmic debts, andmerge the personality with the Subtle Body of the Soul permanently.Challenge: Self-destructive patterns impede spiritual growth. Make the necessary changesin your life and accept the subsequent pain that comes when old patterns are dropped. Playthe game of life and love Your Self. Be willing to cut ties with old relationships that stillhold negative energy and make life chaotic. Self-confidence occurs with the alignment ofthe soul and personality.

  36. 36. 14. Temperance: Mercury and SagittariusT emperance – is represented by an androgynous angel holding the cup of the serpent of eternity. The red wings depict higher consciousness. The angel is standing on themoon and on the earth, which represents a perfect balance between the subconscious andconscious mind. The crown glorifies the union of male and female. In the beginning, at theinstant of creation, the divine androgyny reflects on itself and divides into Shiva-Shakti’sexquisite vibration, sound and light. In 2012 the cosmos balances us as pure androgyniesfor there will be no more separation.The profound change from the 14 vibration produces great wisdom to select the right path.The number 14 assists in knowing what is real through self-enquiry. Self-knowledge bal-ances strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes as well as how to function in differentsituations.Temperance indicates that you’ve learnt the art of life by keeping body-mind-spirit in bal-ance. Balance creates a stable foundation for a fulfilled life. Temperance allows a lovingrelationship with others as the personality’s strengths and weakness are balanced againsttheirs. Analyze all the possibilities and proceed with caution. Why live life on the edge ifyou don’t have to?Challenge: There is a lack of control in your life. Temper your passions and desires or yourhealth may suffer. If you are a workaholic it will create tension in your personal life. Whenyou get angry with yourself and others, temper your anger with forgiveness and make yourheart pure. A nervous, impulsive nature creates problems. A fragmented life prevents ac-complishment. Meditate on what is out of balance. Physical appetites may harm you; envy,jealousy, and divorce are common problems for a negative 14. Seemingly irreconcilable op-posites may not be irreconcilable at all. Try to put thesis and anti-thesis together for a usefulsynthesis. It will take time, care, patience, experimentation and temperance.

  38. 38. 15. The Devil: Venus and CapricornT he Devil, ruled by Capricorn, is portrayed as Baphomet, the hermaphrodite Goat of Mendes. Like the Greek goat-god Pan, Baphomet represents nature’s creative force.Baphomet has the head of a goat, cloven hooves, and the body of a nude woman. Thepentagram on his forehead is a symbol of light. His two hands pointing to a black moonand a white moon form a Hermetic sign of mercy with justice. He is an androgyne as onearm is female, the other male. The flame of intelligence shining between his horns is themagic light of universal balance, or the Soul without ego. Baphomet is associated with theSumerian god Enki who is represented as a goat with a dolphin’s tail. Enki is the Serpentin the Garden of Eden who created Adam and Eve. Enki was the God of Wisdom, not theSatan/Devil of evil as he is portrayed by Christians. It should be noted that ‘the serpent’of Genesis 3 is never identified as Satan. It was under the influence of the Persians, withtheir Zoroastrian concept of a conflict between the forces of light and dark that, Ahriman,permanently at war with Ahura Mazdah, the God of Light, heads an army of demons whoembody envy and other evil qualities. Jewish thinkers transformed one of heaven’s angelsinto an opponent of God and the source of evil. In Job 1-2 and Zechariah 3:1-2, Satan isdepicted as a member of God’s court. His basic duty was to charge human beings beforeGod. In this he is clearly not an enemy of God or the leader of demonic forces of evil, ashe becomes later.The duality of Venus finds fertile ground in 15, which knows everything is illusion. Thismeans that you can escape being trapped in an uncontrollable ego. Through Capricorn,the apex of the zodiac, spirituality is an inspiration for others on the same path. 15 – isvirtue or vice; there is no middle ground. The Devil may appear to be the adversary butsometimes he is our best and only ally to promote the alignment of the soul and personal-ity. Since the ego covertly sabotages spiritual practice while tricking you into believing thatit is cooperating with the Soul. The devil’s purpose is to force you to make right decisions.The inner battle goes on as you are constantly caught in the middle of what is right andwrong.Challenge: Humor enables laughter at grandiosity. Liberate yourself from the conventionalconcept of the devil. Delve beneath the surface and believe in more than what is obvious tothe senses. Realize that you create the limitations in your life. A narrow materialistic viewof life impedes judgment. Life is stagnant when the truth is ignored by burying your headin the sand. Manipulating others for personal gain keeps you in a state of fear. Learn fromthe darker side of your personality. Take a look at the addictions that lurk in the subcon-scious. Loosen the chains and slip out of the power of your ego. The Devil’s torch can lightthe way out. Material wealth leaves you when you die while spiritual wealth is eternal.

  40. 40. 16. The Tower: Moon and MarsT he Tower’s cylindrical shape symbolizes the positive and active principles in nature. The battlements of the tower form a crown being hit by a flash of lightening represent-ing Mars vital life force in the body, the tower being an analogy for the body, while the dove,prominent in many cosmogonies, symbolizes the soul. Lightening strikes the crown chakraand awakens the knowledge of the Divine Essence in the body by burning false ideas. Tow-ers, mystically speaking, aspire upwards towards God. In the Bible the tower is spoken ofmetaphorically, as an emblem of power and aspiration.The number 16 is associated with The Tower and the keyword for The Tower is awakening.This comes as a clear flash of understanding, a bolt from the blue bringing awareness of thetrue nature of self. What inspires fear in the mind of the ignorant liberates the enlightened,just as electricity frightens the primitive but is used constructively by the knowledgeable. Aflash of lightening is another symbol of the electrical serpent force, or the kundalini. Astro-logically, The Tower and the number 16 is ruled by the Moon and Mars. Mars is the driv-ing force within any given mechanism, including the human body. It also rules the head,through Aries. After the kundalini or Mars force within the body is driven up the spine,there in the head, final illumination must take place.The Tower, a portal to the Soul, contains ceremonial initiation chambers. Mars gives aware-ness to the Soul’s thoughts. Basic desires (one, Mars) must be refined by (six, Venus) beforethey become reality in the subconscious mind (seven, Moon). Once the subconscious mindreceives a thought it becomes a reality; it is only a question of time before the thought isacted out in the world. The bolt of lightening destroys the clouds of illusion that hide the in-ner reality of the Soul so the thoughts can be brought to the surface for analysis and releasein a conscious way.Challenge: You are going to have a psychological and spiritual upheaval, which results ina transcendental state of consciousness. Do not succumb to thoughts of failure and catas-trophe. You are angry and frustrated because you are burnt out by emotional distress. Lackof faith causes pessimism and clouds your view of the world. Break free from emotionalbondage and get used to doing things in a new way. Prepare for the rocky road ahead. Anew approach to thinking about the problem is needed, think outside the box. Truth maynot be what your ego wants to hear. It may be time to re-examine your belief structures,ideologies, and paradigms. Seek higher self-knowledge.

  42. 42. 17. The Star: Saturn and AquariusT he Egyptian god Horus’ Barque of Millions of Years, or ship of eternity, sails the cur- rents of the Milky Way. The Egyptian God Hapi, whose jugs poured purifying watersinto the Nile, represents Aquarius. Isis, standing on water and earth represents the op-posites of nature sharing the divine energy of the Milky Way. The Ouroboros, the ringedserpent eating its own tail, has been interpreted as the Milky Way, since time immemorial.An ancient Hopi Indian prophecy states, “When the Blue Star Kachina – Sirius makes itsappearance in the heavens, the Age of Aquarius will emerge in 2012.” The solar system willthen become a binary sun system. During the day Sirius will appear as a silvery light, onehundred times brighter than our sun. During the evening, it will appear as a moon. Thenew frequencies emitted by the Blue Star will increase to over fifteen cycles per second.Sirius has mystical and direct influence over the whole solar system and is connected withalmost every Egyptian god and goddess. The Great Pyramid was built to synchronize withSirius so that the star would shine through the passageway to the Queen’s Chamber andimpart the energy of Sirius to an initiate.According to Robert Temple’s book, The Sirius Mystery, our solar system is born fromthe womb of Isis. Sirius B is made of iron and radio astronomy has shown that iron isthe same as the iron in our blood, the iron of Earth and of our solar system. Sirius is in ourblood. We resonate to her. She is older than our solar system, which is a combination ofinterstellar debris, including the gas clouds, the sperm of Osiris/Orion. At midnight themighty constellation of Orion, followed by the Dog-Star Sirius, takes its position in thecentral heavens south of the zenith. The three stars in the belt of Orion are known as thethree Magi are represented by the three pyramids in the Giza plateau in Cairo, which pointin a direct line to the Dog-Star, Sirius. To ancient Egyptians, the Dog Star represents theChristos, the soul of mankind. On a spiritual level, Sirius is our connection to the cosmosas the electrical body is able to absorb even higher vibrations of truth. 17 – incorporates theseven of receptivity (the Moon) and the one of concentration (Mars). Together they equaleight (Saturn), which corresponds with the rising spiritual force at the base of the spineand makes meditation easier. The light of Sirius activates the desire for a spiritual practice.Key 17 signals that goals and aspirations are only realized by taking positive action andpromises an eventual peace of mind.Challenge: If you have been holding back in any way, now is the time to give generously.Listen to the waves of information coming to you from the stars and be open to all pos-sibilities. Meditate frequently and get in touch with your inner visions. Do not let difficultmoments overwhelm you, as there is light at the end of the tunnel.

  44. 44. 18. The Moon: Sun and PiscesT he conjunction of the Moon and Sun is a metaphor for the Sun’s orbit crossing the Milky Way at the exact place of the Sagittarius-Scorpio nexus. The constellations Lu-pus (constellation of the wolf) and Vulpecula (constellation of the fox) reside along theMilky Way at opposite ends of the ecliptic. The arrow of Sagittarius, the tongue of Serpens(a part of the ‘Healing’ constellation of Aesclepius /Ophiuchus), and the sting of Scorpioall define the position of the galactic center on December 21, 2012. At that moment it ispredicted that time ceases and the world will end. But it’s not the end – Aesclepius, theGod of medicine, transmits the constellation’s alchemical healing powers and brings allback to life.The Moon is also associated with the feminine principle with a special relationship toearth; hence the moon is a form of the Great Mother, known by many names: Bast, Ar-temis, Diana, and Isis—who each have a double aspect, spiritual and material. Bast is in-timately connected with the moon, especially in her form of the cat. Thus when she isdepicted as a lioness her attributes are solar; when as a cat, lunar. This dual aspect bears aclose analogy with the moon, which is further indicated when Bast is represented as beingone of the goddesses of the birth chamber; and her son Khensu, the light bearer, fertilizedthe goddesses’ ovum to make the human embryo grow. In a series of lectures called ‘Goldof the Gods’ Sir Lawrence Gardner discusses ‘Star Fire’ which is Soma or Ambrosia thelunar essence of the Hindu goddesses. Gardner also noted that “In more ancient Sumer-ian times, during the days of the original Star Fire ritual, the bloodline kings who were fedwith the hormone-rich lunar essence of the Annunaki goddesses were also said to havebeen nourished with their own milk —notably that of Ishtar.” This Star Fire was actu-ally the divine menstruum, which supposedly “constituted the purest and most potent lifeforce.”The symbolism in key 18 shows that the subconscious mind can be changed through thetests of Saturn. When Saturn is energized by Mars it results in Self Realization. The Sun,representing true Consciousness, finds its own true identity in key 18. There are two cen-ters: The Soul, which is immortal and the Personality, which is mortal when it is unawareof the Soul. Realization is attainable in 18 because the light of the Moon shines through theclouds of illusion to align the soul with the personality.Challenge: Do not fear strange emotions, dreams, or even hallucinations for they enrichlife. It is vital to take care of the body’s health. Think positively and take fresh air, exercise,rest, and sunlight. Do not deny your power to heal. If you become a healer your presencealone is a powerful force to relieve suffering. Embrace disturbed emotions that cause ir-ritability and heal them. This is not the moment to leave your comfort zone.

  46. 46. 19. The Sun: Mars and the SunT he Hyper-Cosmic Sun and source of consciousness, is located at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, which our solar system shares with at least 200 billion other starsand their planets, and where thousands of clusters and nebula coexist. There are manynames and symbols for the central Sun of the Galaxy: The Egyptian Eye of Ra or Horusdepicted as a Hawk and Uraeus (a cobra) either side of the sun disk; the Greek Helios andApollo; the Persian Mithras; and the Mayan Galactic Butterfly or Hunab Ku.The Great Central Sun of the Cosmos is the source of all physical-spiritual creation. Itis the Nucleus of the “Cosmic Egg.” The star Sirius is the focus of the Great Central Sunin our sector of the Galaxy, which magnifies the radiations of a particular constellationfor 2,160 years during any particular zodiacal age. The sun magnifies the radiations of aparticular constellation that affects our seasons and zodiacal ages. The sun is the cen-tral focus of radiating energy, physical and spiritual, in any solar system. The sun is thestorehouse of the vital electrical orce of the solar system; it issues forth from the sun as lifecurrents not only for the earth and every organism upon it, but for all the planets of thesolar system (SD 1:531).In our solar system the sun is one of several suns subordinate to the central sun of theuniversal solar system. Similarly, in the ancient Mystery dramas, the Sun-god role wasreenacted by the initiate in the field of human experience. The sun’s movements throughthe zodiac were considered the mirror of our life in spirit. To follow the yearly journeyof the sun through the zodiac was to epitomize graphically the whole history of humanexperience. The power of the Sun is a living power identical with your spiritual power. Thedriving force of Mars must be controlled and raised to a higher level through the awarenessof the true life-giving power of the Sun. All our energy comes from the Sun, and we inturn must radiate the energy we receive from it. The Sun rules the intellect and highlightshidden desires that cloud the awareness of Divinity. This key indicates that many turn toyou for guidance because people are attracted to your inner wisdom. It can also mean thatyour Soul has been here on earth many times before and may be completing its missionby marrying the right soul mate.Challenge: The light of the sun is obscured by your lack of faith and refusal to overcomeMars aggressive influence. Be like a Sunflower that always faces the Sun to absorb itspower. There is a lack of purpose in your life because your personality is not aligned withyour Soul. Create a positive image of yourself but refrain from self-indulgence. Masteryour emotions, which cause loss of the Real Self.

  48. 48. 20. Regeneration: Vulcan and SaturnT he two four pointed crosses (XX), represent the Great Celestial Conjunction of 2012 when the inhabitants of earth regenerate. The winged solar orb symbolizes the EgyptianTrinity, the three states of consciousness in the One Supreme Intelligence. Osiris (conscious-ness), Isis (sub-consciousness) and Horus (Super-consciousness). The Eye of Horus seeswhat has fallen out of harmony. When Vulcan (two) burns everything that is false, the soulis regenerated as pure love. Oneness with God (zero) means oneness with humanity. In 20the power of the cosmos vibrates through Vulcan to unite spirit and matter.The Egyptians were not obsessed with the afterlife, as thought by early the Christians, butwere focused on creating a higher type of human. Along with many ancient cultures they be-lieved DNA came from the stars and was destined to return to them. The Egyptians believedthat humans are meant to evolve beyond their present terrestrial form. Even the Bible tellsus we may become greater than angels.The winged globe is emblematic of the Egyptian Trinity. The Wings, the Serpents, andthe solar Orb are the insignia of Amon Ra and Osiris. J.J.Hurtak’s scientific examination ofthe world’s key pyramid sites reveal them to be sophisticated harmonic structures, not onlymirroring positions of the planets and constellations but designed to activate the harmonicsof human chakras. Each stone within the Great Pyramid is harmonically tuned to a specificfrequency or musical tone and the King’s Chamber, in the center of the Great Pyramid, istuned to the frequency of the human heart beat.In mythology Vulcan was thrown from heaven to forge the spiritual essence of heaven andearth together. The analogy of the myth represents the fall of your soul into human formruled by Saturn. The soul then has come many times to burn away the layers of illusion thatcause false impression of our separation from the being One with God. Vulcan opens thelines of communication between the Soul and the ego. Saturn purifies the heart. The uni-verse is the vast body of God, cosmic electrical energy is the astral form of God, and the soulor life in you is the essence of creation.Challenge: Know that you are the essence of God. Your life will reflect this if you are guidedby your Soul most of the time. No longer question your divinity so that your life’s workstarts in earnest. Find the meaning of life. The keys to liberation are already there but youare unwilling to use them. Accept responsibility for your actions and act rather than react.The call from the unknown is not listened to because you do not meditate on the breath oflife within.

  50. 50. 21. The Universe: Jupiter and SaturnT he final card is numbered 21 or XXI because the Great Celestial Conjunction, symbol- ized by two crosses, occurs in the Milky Way at the beginning of the Age of Aquarius.Johannes Kepler described his new astronomy as “celestial physics,” and believed that thegreat conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn in the sign of Pisces announced the real beginningof the Age of Aquarius. The Ouroboros represents the ecliptic crossing of the Milky Waywhere the Sun resides at the equinoxes and or solstices on the Great Celestial Conjunctionin 2012/12.Our goddess is a Cosmokrator maintaining cosmic order with four fixed signs of thezodiac, which hold our world together; for when they change, as they periodically do,our world falls apart. She has a serpent coiled around her to symbolize eternity. InHindu philosophy the seven-headed serpent is infinite time itself and symbolizes endlesscycles of time. The serpent coiled in a circle symbolizes the eternal dance of life. Throughthe Eye of Horus she understands the limitations of the ego.21 – marks the time when there is a pause in life before the next cycle begins. Leo, Taurus,Scorpio, and Aquarius are the Four Fixed Cardinal points of the vault of heaven and areknown as the Sacred Four, the Four Faces of God, or the Four Archangels. It is through ourunderstanding of the Four Ages, and the fixed signs of the zodiac that we can finally appre-ciate the message that our ancestors have handed down to us. We are about to pass througha null point of hyper-dimensional space. This awareness helps us comprehend the nature ofthe times in which we live and the destiny of the human race. 21 – indicates that you are aware of the cosmic breath that permeates you. Saturn ruleskey 21 and uses the energies of the sacral plexus to uproot deeply rooted desires, for power,money, position, sensual pleasures and other attractions, which have caused endless trou-ble. Traditionally the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn signals the birth of Avatars whobring the message of love to the world. This combination of planets seeks to unite things ofEarth with the wisdom of Jupiter.Challenge: Give of yourself for true happiness. Although you’ve passed many tests in lifeand are ready to live by the laws of the universe, you still resist knowing that we are all One.Be ready to play the game of life and follow the path of your Soul’s purpose. The only reasonfor being in the world—is to know your True Self, “The I AM.” Stop thinking that even oneaspect of this world is real. Conquer the forces that impede your spiritual development.

  52. 52. 22/0. The Soul: Earth and UranusT he Soul, an individual ray of the Great Central Sun, is spiraling to earth to take human form again so that it can return ego less to the heart of the sea of spiritual essence at theGalactic Center. The Soul is here to be part of the new wave of consciousness that will endthe negative state of affairs in the world. You’ve been here thousands of times to experiencelife without ego, but without success. A human soul without ego = God. It is not easy totake human birth so do not waste this opportunity to learn the lessons of the Soul. The Soulis urging you to take the plunge, follow the heart, and listen to its inner call.Before time and before space only all pervading Consciousness existed. Then some ‘Di-vine’ impulse started the process of creation of this Universe of which sages say we are thecrown jewel. Just as an architect injects his vibration into his creation so too the first pri-mordial architect placed His characteristics into us. A child is a combination of the genesand DNA of its parents, which are influenced by planetary forces, and the Divine DNA ofUniversal Consciousness which is ‘Love’. The moment the soul enters the womb planetarymovements and cycles affect the human DNA. Astrology is the interaction between thevibrations and frequencies of these celestial bodies which program the DNA with emo-tions: Love, Hate, Fear, etc.Astrologically, the planet Earth is associated with the Soul and the number 22. Since 22reduces to a 4 (2 + 2 = 4), the Earth rules over this vibration. A blending of spiritual con-sciousness with the proper use and control of the world’s material offerings, including thebody itself, gives ‘Total Truth Consciousness’. The Circle was chosen as a symbol becausethe solar system appears to surround us like a wheel. Uranus, planetary ruler of the Soul,dissipates negative thoughts and behavior patterns that impede enlightenment flowing tothose around you. If the Soul’s mission is successful it will be free from the emotions thatforce it to constantly return to become liberated. Karma has left its scars on your soul sothat is why it’s returning to heal them. This cycle will continue until the Soul and personal-ity have aligned as One in the Eternal Now. The Soul is the vital breath at the core of yourbeing which is pure love.Challenge: Follow your soul’s purpose on earth and honor your agreement with the ‘Di-vine Will.’ From now on accept your vital breath as your real essence. Constantly remem-ber that you are not the body/mind complex. Use this mantra: As long as this vital breathis there, God is there. Meditate on the divine energy within you as it can lead you to newheights. With this key anything, or nothing, can happen. Love yourself to become the blisswhich is all you will ever be. Repeat the mantra; I Am God, I am not different to God.

  54. 54. 23. King of Wands: AriesKing of Wands, represented by Thoth, the Cosmic Logos, is depicted with the face of a dog-headed baboon and the body of a man. Thoth the moon god greeted the sun god, Ra, as herose. The Dog faced Baboon is a symbol of the genetic union of Dog and Ape (Sirius and theEarth). The motto of the First Decan of Aries is: Action — Energy — Activity — Generos-ity — Spontaneity.The King of Wands (cardinal fire) presides over the first ten degrees of Aries (fire). Oftenhis ideas are irrational and dominated by high emotions. He accepts challenge and fightsrelentlessly to achieve success. The First Decan of Aries indicates fearlessness, but beware ofbecoming too stubborn. This Mars ruled Decan gives us a strong driving force for passions.Those governed by this Decan are idealistic, romantic and restless.You have an abundance of ideas and want to improve existing conditions. You are respectedby your family and peers. Your creative and inventive abilities may express themselves in re-search and communication. You are practical, philosophical and spiritual and your wisdomgives you increased perception to move through difficult situations constructively. Your keyphrase should be, ‘Thy will be done.’Challenge: You need to learn how to pace yourself in order to avoid early “burnout.” Findan outlet to serve others. The best way to keep the ego under control is to cultivate kindnessand thoughtfulness to others. Avoid judging others and becoming patronizing. You becomeselfish and blow up when things don’t go your way. Let go and feel the passion and the firewithin. If your expectations are not irrationally high, the King of Wands will take you to thesummit.

  56. 56. 24. Queen of Wands: Sun and Leo in AriesThe Queen of Wands is represented by the feline Egyptian goddess, Bastet, who geneticallyengineered various kinds of life forms in the universe. Bastet symbolizes the unrestrictedpotential of all creation. Felines merged their DNA with mammals and began a program ofgenetic upgrading that would give them a soul and, in the process create a new species thatwould become known as Humans. Bastet presided over sexual experiments in Atlantis (andlater Egypt), which gave rise to mermaids, minotaurs, centaurs, flying horses etc. Bastet wasseen as defender of Ra, the solar deity, who called her, Lady of the Flame.The Queen of Wands presides over the second decan of Aries, which is the Leo Decan,presided over by the Sun. While Aries supplies originality, dynamism and courage, Leo isrelentless until success comes. The Sun adds a steady flow of mental and physical energy tothis Decan. This secondary planetary influence also combines generosity, nobility and lead-ership balance the aggressive trait inherent in the Aries temperament. Romance, admiration,gratification and entertainment are of great importance. There is difficulty in life without apartner. You have looked deeply into your soul, which has led to transformation. Your pur-suits are now positively energized.Challenge: The aggressive influence of Aries is ruling now. Remove yourself from jealouspeople who are narrow minded, self-centered and domineering. Do not harm others oryourself through aggressive behavior. If you’re verbally beaten you can become revengeful.Avoid being dominating, overbearing, envious, or bitter

  58. 58. 25. Prince of Wands: Sun in AriesThe Prince of Wands is represented by Surya, the Sun God, who, according to Indian leg-end, was married to Sanghya (consciousness). The two had three children Vasvat Manu,the first man, Yama, the impartial lord of death and Yamuna, the holy river. This legendabout Surya and the planets has a wonderful symbolic meaning. Sunlight, together withconsciousness, gives birth to life, death and water (Yamuna). The planets were also oncepart of the sun’s light and were born from it.The Prince of Wands presides over the spring season, (Aries, Taurus, and Gemini) from thetime the Sun enters the sign of Aries until it reaches the summer solstice at zero degrees ofthe sign of Cancer. The Sun is exalted in Aries, and its power awakens new energy as natureresponds to its warming rays. This energy is a gift resulting from courage displayed in pastincarnations when you performed acts of selfless service. This gift must be handled withresponsibility so that it does not harm others through aggressive behavior. Like nature, atthis time of the year, you gain strength by overcoming obstacles. There can be difficultiesas you struggle to meet the Sun’s promise, but persevere though hard work. The path of theSun expands your spiritual life.The Prince of Wands alerts us to change within our lives, reminding us that change is es-sential for growth and to roll with the changes we encounter. Prince of Wands can attractour attention to an individual in our lives who is a restless spirit eager for new adventures.Challenge: Remain alert to the possibilities of overcoming obstacles. Life is disrupted whenyou are not on track. You’ve lost your focus on what is important. There might be confu-sion and disharmony in life or an individual who lacks the ability to put closure to projects.Remember your past life of integrity. 25 can be a sign of conflict and a loss of energy. Com-plete your work. Listlessness, laziness, and dissatisfaction cause entropy.

  60. 60. 26. Princess of Wands: Jupiter and Venus in Aries The Princess of Wands is represented by, Lilith, who had intercourse with Adam causingthe seed of the serpent (wisdom) to proliferate in the world. Lilith is believed to have beenthe woman created prior to Eve and she displeased God, according to the legend. She is theMother of Israel and can be approached at any time, and any place. She particularly respectswisdom and good deeds.In the third Decan of Aries, Jupiter instills a superabundance of vital force and energy. Jupi-ter’s physical stamina has the ability to shake off illness, and give a positive winning attitudetowards life. Inner conviction easily overcomes most tests in life. The influence of Venustempers Aries’ sentimental rash decisions. Jupiter influences the intellect.The Princess of Wands is impulsive, aggressive, and not easily satisfied in relationships.She is driven, ambitious, and enthusiastic. Rationality and patience are not counted amongher virtues. These aspects suggest you approach love casually so it is much harder to settledown. You will receive good news as old fears have lost their power. You must transformyour fears into love. Love takes time to mature and it cannot flourish overnight except inrare exceptions.Challenge: You tend to remain rather aloof from others. Pleasure-seeking tendencies shouldbe controlled. Jupiter supplies sincerity and generosity. Venus afflicted in Aries causes im-petuousness in your love life and difficulty in controlling the sexual urge. Don’t be upset bybad or disappointing news. Be aware that you have the tendency to be domineering, ma-nipulative, untrustworthy, and dishonest. Control your temper and do not let little thingsupset you.

  62. 62. 27. Ace of WandsThe Ace of Wands is symbolized by the World Tree, the first creation in the universe fromwhich everything emanated. Sacred cultures believe the material world emanates from thespiritual world, and they use key symbols to show how the spiritual world is organized,such as Sacred Trees. In Celtic culture they honor the Oak Tree, in Indian spirituality it isthe Banyan tree under which the Buddha experienced enlightenment, in Norse mythologyYggdrasil is a giant ash tree that links all the worlds and the Cabala has its Sacred Tree ofLife.Sacred trees all have certain things in common — roots that reach down into the under-world, a great trunk in the middle world, and branches and leaves that reach the upperworld — the cosmos. We can travel in them to access worlds because sacred trees are theliving structures of all the world. Sacred science in ancient cultures had one thing in com-mon; they believed that these trees were circulation systems for human consciousness.The Aces of the Tarot deck preside over the elements of fire, earth, and water. 27 – is anumber of great spiritual strength. The fire elements (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) relate tothe Ace of Wand’s guidance to the Self. The Ace of Wands is the ‘Life Force’ itself. The treeshakes false securities like broken branches. Wands represent the will or personal desire todo things. Wands are all about motivation because they deal with self-perception, ambi-tions, and ways to feel successful. Every fairy tale includes at least one magic wand. Now,what is a magic wand? It is simply the tool used by witches, fairy godmothers, or whoeverfocuses their will to change reality. So, when you see this Ace be aware that what is beingtalked about is an act of will.Challenge: Forget tired, worn-out solutions. Things are falling apart and it is difficult tostart a dream project. Ambitions are misdirected because of fear of success. Expect delays,the loss of a business or general discontent. Examine life to see how its energy can work.Be daring and brave. Sometimes you have to risk getting what you want. Look for the paththat will excite you and push you beyond your limits. Seize the initiative, and let enthusiasmtake you to new heights. Wands are the suit of individual power and fulfillment. This Acetells you that a new passion is beginning.

  64. 64. 28. Two of Wands: Mars in AriesThis Decan influences Mars, the ruling planet of Aries. There is a vitalizing, stimulating,and resourceful quality in this division of the Zodiac. Mars in astrology represents the en-ergy to carry out various functions. This key indicates a super abundance of self confidenceor alternatively it can result in many ego clashes if you come on too strong, so pace your selfin order to avoid early “burnout.”The Two of Wands glorifies individual courage and taps into the Magician’s force to begreat. A powerful person is like a magnet that attracts all within a certain area. True poweralways comes from the Divine. It passes through us and then flows out into the world. Youare blessed when you understand this relationship, because this flow brings a tremendousfeeling of expansion and fulfillment. The Two of Wands indicates that power is a major is-sue in the situation. You or someone else has it or wants it.Challenge: You do not appreciate yourself. You get no real satisfaction from what you’re do-ing. When Mars is afflicted learn to control energy. Practice self-control to regain balance.Problems develop when we forget that we are not the source of power, only its conduit. Becareful not to let the intoxicating feelings that come with power overwhelm good inten-tions. Look carefully at your goals and activities to make sure you are using power wisely.Take the gift of power and use it to mold a positive environment.

  66. 66. 29. Three of Wands: Leo and Sun in AriesThe Three of Wands is represented by Freyja. The asterism Orion’s Belt was known as“Freyja’s Distaff ” Some have pointed out that the constellation is on the celestial equatorand have suggested that the stars rotating in the night sky may have been associated withFreyja’s spinning wheel. Freyja’s name means “love” or “beloved one.” Freyja was a goddessassociated with married women. Women prayed to her when giving birth to children.Freyja (like Odin) has many titles by which she is known. Freyja itself means “the lady.”Her other titles include: Vanadis (Goddess of the Vanir), Vanabrudhr (Bride of the Vanir),Hörn (Mistress of Flax), Gefn (the giver), Syr (the sow), Mardöll (the Sea-bright) and Gull-veig (the gold-greedy).The Second Decan of Aries, an ambitious area of the zodiac, gives great momentum to thechosen goal. This vibration gives vision and foresight for your many talents. With the helpof Freyja, people are willing to invest with you to create a profitable partnership but don’tbe gold greedy like Freyja.The Second Decan of Aries supplies dynamism and courage, Leo ensures success. The in-fluence of the Sun, the secondary planet governing this Decan enhances originality andsoftens the aggressive trait inherent in an Aries temperament. Thus, this Decan’s combina-tion of influences has immense potential for discoveries and unique inventions. Now is thetime to be a confident leader open to new areas of interest. This energy is, in effect, a kind ofreward or gift to you resulting from acts of courage in past incarnations, when self-interestswere set aside.Challenge: Do not allow negative energy to express itself.
