The Magician



The Lovers





 





Any man born in an air sign is a King of Swords.

He may also be someone who loves sailing, or who flies airplanes for fun, as these are a Swords orientations.

A king of Swords could be a man you met in the open air, at a sports arena or field, at a balloon exhibition, or an airport.

His occupation may be that of surgeon, lawyer, or salesman. A natural philosopher, he will display keen judgment of others capacities, be shrewd of speech, and look sharp.

His temper could quickly and easily flare.

 

The King of Swords

     The trees are sad cypress.  His arras, or tapestry behind the throne, shows the crescent moon and butterflies, symbols of the soul, and clouds. 

     He is wrapped in a red mantle and crowned, with no armor.  His wits are his sword and shield. 

     He sports a signet ring on his right hand, with the sword in his left. 


 

 



 

 


 

 





The Queens of Swords

     Note that she has an attachement to her left arm, as if it is a cellphone holder.  She doesn't face us, but looks away;  her mantle matches the skies of heaven, and angels are carved on her throne.  This tells us some of her children are there in heaven.  Sad cypress.

Swords women are energetic, high maintenance friends, who are always on the phone, texting you a thousand messages, all of them full of fun and gossip.

When you have a problem, they know ten other people who had the same thing happen, and can tell exactly what each person did that was different and which was the same.

Swords women are fair weather friends, who show you exactly which way the political wind blows





The knight of swords

     In full flight, he charges!  Notice the horse looks horrified, and is focused back on the rider, rolling its eyes, even in full gallop. 

     Note the red flag flying from his helmet?  This is a sure sign that we are making a haste and a huge mistake, going full bore down the wrong path without a thought in our heads. 

All air sign people tend to travel frequently. They may be travel agents or pilots or stewardesses, or just be on the move a lot, or change jobs every two years.

They may be journalists, in the broadcast industry, or in politics. They are always well groomed and dressed for the occasion, and can articulate well.

They negotiate. Principle seldom gets in the way of the bottom line.

Air signs are risk takers.

Air signs in particular are inquisitive, almost to the point of being nosy!


 

 

 





The page of swords

     He isn't looking at his sword; he is looking the other way.  The birds in the air are fluttering ina  circle, the way his thoughts are circling endlessly in his head.  Clouds are rising in a clear sky, clouding the issue;  one cloud is over his left shoulder near his head, one billowing down from his sword.  Much hot air issues from the head and the sword!! 

    He stands upon strata or layered ground which looks as if it has been healing, in a halted pose; is he going forward or back?  He can't decide, yet his red boots tell us he is moving.  Back and forth, back and forth over the same ground, over the same issues. 

     The cypress tree in the backdrop makes a clear small 'f' pattern.

The Page of Swords always brings news, especially news from far away places, and a change of scene.

Physical activity is an air sign trait!

Some think that air signs make the best spys and investigators. Some also think they are psychotic, but this is unfair.












Venus Trump
The Empress



Taurus Trump

The Heirophant



The Earth Court

Physically, they look indigenous to the region, or are natives. They have a typical Yankee face, or a local Yorkshire look, or, like every successful homicidal maniac, they look like everybody else.

Any person born under Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn will show up in the court of earth.


 

 


 

 





The King of Pentacles

 

     Note his armor and crown;  this indicates that he will fight for what he wants or what he considers his.  He has his foot on an armadillo, also an armored entity;  he has trained his instincts and controls his emotions.  Hence he is an excellent fighter!

     He is gazing fondly at his pentacle;  this lets us know he is possessive, but enjoys his possessions rather than just hording them.  Both his gaze and his armadillo lets us know this man is security conscious.

     Everything around him is lush and fertile and green;  the city in the background is not where his heart or attention lies, but in the freedom and beauty of nature. 

In divination, the Earth man is considerate of other peoples resources and time. His taste is sophisticated in public, his manner reserved, he is all about business, and is always a devoted dad. He can be a most formidable foe! Don't provoke his anger unless you can play hard ball.





The Queen of Pentacles

 

     The first thing we notice is that only she, and the Magician in the Trumps, are completely encased in a flowering bower.  This indicates divine protection and power.  She has an unusual topknot on her hat, which is surrounded by a crown, from which flows a mantle.  All this attests to the same thing.

     A rabbit leaps about at her feet;  she is fertile herself, and has that magnetic power to share with others around her.  She makes things grow and multiply.

     She too is gazing down, but rather as if her pentacle were a crystal ball or scrying glass.  She is contemplating alchemy.   

In divination, the woman of Pentacles is the woman wearing name brand designer clothes, driving the latest model SUV, who recylces everything and works two jobs plus is a full time mom. She can sense others needs, is warm hearted and kind, and frequently grants wishes!





The Knight of Pentacles

 

may be issues upon which we must act, as well as those most likely to act upon them;

     This is the most interesting character in the  court;  he is mounted.  Rider, waite;  here is the place where we have the opportunity to step in and change the course of events as displayed by the Tarot. 

     Notice that he is gazing directly ahead into his pentacle, as if her were using it as a compass or a map.  His horse has a green sprig of leaves on its head, as if it too were a living, instinctual compass which points to Life.  He is using his jacket or coat for a blanket under his saddle, for the horses' comfort, and notice too the extra straps behind him;  a really elaborate bridle in front.  The land in the background is curiously marked as long flowing lines, as if it were tilled; or gouged out by an earthmover, or glaciers, or in strata.  He is clearly surveying unknown country, not necessarily going there.  

      The knight also invites us to step in and get involved in some issue which is important, current, and bigger than ourselves.  Global warming, the environmental movement, and the sales at Lowes are all earth issues, which revolve around the archtype of knight.

Page of Pentacles

     Keep in mind that the pages frequently represent news events, communications about events, and happenings in the subject, as well as young people of either sex under the age of 20 years.

     The page is topped with an oversized beret and a trailing scarf, and the beret has matching red feathers.  His instincts and intellect are older than this lifetime, and so he is protected from distractions.  He focuses on his pentacle like it is his treasure, and his stance suggests he has just stepped up to it.  His landscape is pleasant, growing, uncluttered, with a grove of trees (the divine) and a mountain (God) in the background.

     In divination, the children of earth are more likely to share their curds and whey with the spider than to run away from it. Most earth sign folks are deeply attached to the local fauna and flora.

 


 

 



I like the pentacle people.

Aries Trumps

Emperer as Arie

 

     The best modern rendering of the Heirophant is as the Tradition Keeper of our tribes.

     Because we have to remember what has gone before us, who our people are, where they came from, what they did and didn't do;   or we wind up not knowing anything at all, and clueless as to where to go from here.  A lot like people nowadays, who have a Star to guide them, but no idea how to navigate. 

     The Pope, and the Catholic Christianity he represents, has kept our moral sense alive for over six thousand years.  Our moral fiber and our conscience is what supports and stabelizes civilization. 

    The Pope may be Pontifex Maximus of Rome,  Pharoah of old, and even worse names;  but he represents the tradition and the roots of civilization since the Zep Tepi, the inception of the human drama. 

     If the Heirophant appears to you, understand that he is Mythic Authority, the Voice that becomes gruff and scary when describing the Big Bad Wolf in the story, and tells you how to avoid it!




Mars Trump

The Tower!!!

 

       As always, watch the patterns!! The drops of fire, the lightening bolt, and compare the clouds of smoke to the leaves on the ace of wands. 

     The Tower means catastrophe,  and though it may come as a bolt from the blue, with a little wisdom, a little humility, a little brain muscle and it could have been avoided. 

    




Aries People are of Fire!

      In cases of physical description, the fire folks always look a little different; original, yes, but slightly foreign. Natural chameleons, they tend to disguise themselves to adapt to their surroundings, though their innate fire always shows through. Most fire sign women color their hair, even in youth; they are tastefully made up, but always so; the fire men are frequently too daring in their speech.

 

 

     The figures of the wands court may represent situations and changes as well as people; not often, but it can happen.

 

 

     The king of wands is a source of ideas.

      The queen of wands suggest a rural setting.

      The knight of wands lets you know that you will be moving, changing your place of residence.

      The page or wands brings news, usually by the fastest possible means, of the latest changes.

 





The King of Wands

     The first thing we note is that he wears the cap of maintenance under his crown, and two mantles, though no armor.  He can hold his temper, his mind, his liquer.  He has a salamander or creature of fire at his side, and these decorate his crown, along with the lion insignia.  He is therefor a real magickian! The back of his throne extends so far up we can't see the top;  a sure sign he has secrets to keep, and will keep them, due to his mantle of maintenance.  His scepture is a branch or wand, with sprouting leaves, even though his dias is upon a wooden floor. 

 

In divination, this man is smooth talking, urbane, movin' up, and into music. He may be a player, who straightens up to fly right with his 30th birthday.





The Queen of Wands

     Look at the design on the tapestry or arras behind her!  This itself is full of half hidden alchemical symbols, two lions or warthogs with huge fiery tales or tails, a budding tree from two stars, and sunflowers, the symbols of physical resurrection.  She holds a huge sunflower in her hand.  (Her natural hair color is as black as her cats, but upon her accession she dyed it red;  when her cat tried to change his color to match hers, she pinched his power off to  keep him black, that she would always remember where she came from.)  She wears his face over her heart as her emblem, and has cats carved on her throne.  This crazy cat lady is telling us that cats are creatures of inner fire who are privy to many secrets about death, rebirth, and resurrection!  Her knees are set apart, telling us she is active.

     In divination, this gal is competitive in work and play. She knows what she is talking about, and can give you good advice in any situation.





The Knight of Wands

     Notice he is facing a different direction than the other knights?  There is a reason for that.  He is facing the Pyramids at Gizeh, which we can see in the background, and his mount is rampant, leaping up.  You notice he is reigning in his mount, controlling both his thoughts and desires, and the playfulness of his nature.  He has salamander emblems, and those little clovers on his bridle, while quite a few feathers fly from his helmet.  (Ok, it may be lace, or a scarf, or any indicator of which way the wind is blowing!)  This tells us he is moving as swiftly as do events.

     Wands issues revolve around communcation, its mediums and modes, the exchange of ideas of all kinds, invention, discovery and breakthrough, travel, world affairs, politics, liturature, everything current, including the latest fashion.





 



 If you want to understand cats, study the suit of wands!!
 

 


The Page of Wands

     The Pyramids of Gizeh are right there;  'pyr' means fire, and 'amid' comes to 'fire within'.  Note too the feather in his cap, meaning this is not the first life time for him, and he bears a mantle of maintenance at a young age. 

This is a friend from another time, another life, another planet perhaps, reincarnated. 

In divination, Wands News will always include quotations of those having their 15 minutes of fame now. It may also come as a surprise.
