Divinatory meaning: Anger, rage, fury. Hubris. A dangerous game. The temptation to dominate or have power over others.
Still working on those pesky Five’s. Who wants to live in the world of the Five’s? We need to keep looking for pockets of peace in the midst of conflict — at least that’s my experience while creating the Five’s. It’s a good metaphor, I think, for approaching life during times like these. (Did you see the recent newspaper article that says that most Americans are gloomier than ever? Can’t imagine why). I found myself getting deeply caught up in the patterns and shapes of the flames and smoke while I was working on this piece, trancing out a bit. I had too many errands to do in town on Monday, so I took my drawing board, colored pencils, clip-on light and portable sharpener with me. I worked on the flames in the waiting room at Jiffy Lube and again at Les Schwab. <giggle> There’s something very appropriate about all that dirty oil-and-fire energy around car repair places that went into this card. All that dependence on oil . . . the flames of war . . . Hmm. Interesting where the image on a Tarot card will take you if you let your mind just float.
What do you all see in this new card?
