“The Emperor”

Standard

The EmperorThe Emperor – Supreme Authority, Mars ruled by Aires, bordered by the Ram, exalted in the Sun.  His world fiery in a harsh mountainous landscape is a stark contrast to his consort the Empress’s lush garden.  A thin ribbon of the creative river trickles behind him while he is comfortably seated on his stone throne – civilization is his forte.

The Emperor is ‘defining intelligence’ and he proclaims the laws, boundaries and limits in the royal realm. Within his protection you learn of your ethics and values – how to be responsible within the solid architecture of societies organized structures.  He can be compassionate, acknowledging accomplishments and rewarding achievements.  The Emperor is a wise, mature and powerful ruler he clearly sees the big picture and makes the harsh decisions and sacrifices – for he is also a model and a fierce protector of goodwill especially toward the greater good.

A scepter of the symbol of life in one hand and a globe of dominion in the other the Emperor’s kingdom radiates vibrant with Divine Love. As your ally he can redefine your own territory and expand the horizons of your “I AM”.

“The High Priestess”

Standard

Mystical Maiden of Intuition!
The Isis of the Tarot is centered between the pillars of dark, passive, receptive Boas of Strength and the white, active, expanding Jachin of wisdom; engraved soulful with each ones opposite. The balance of the cross on her robe signs to all the unity of masculine, material and feminine spiritual energies. She herself completes a third pillar of mildness in this triad, poised with the book of divine law and all things remembered protected in her lap. A tiara of the moon in its three phases’ crowns her head and a crescent moon at her feet are reminisce of the rhythms of the silver ship sailing across the mystical night skies. Seated upon a solid cube of reality The High Priestess rules the vast and mysterious world of the unconscious wisdom of subconscious, land of the psychic intuitive mind. Her gaze is supremely powerful, mirroring the deep and hidden forces of our inner voice.  Her immense realm is largely hidden with a veil of sacred pomegranates and palms, representing the fertility, death, victory, triumph, war, love and sex all obscuring focuses of daily life.  The High Priestess’s watery stream continually flows through us indiscriminately, She knows not the difference between reality and fantasy nor does She care – she is but a reflection of our deepest whispered thoughts.
