The card represents hope, inspiration, faith and spiritual strength. A promise of peace, hope and healing depicted by the beautiful mermaid pouring from two urns. In this image, the stars of the Milky Way appear to fill the vessels, which are then emptied into the sea and land.  The brightest star in our galaxy, Sirius part of the constellation, Canis Major is portrayed in this card. Sirius, also known as Sothis was the marker star for the Egyptian Sothic calendar and is the dog at the heels of the hunter in the constellation of Orion. The Star is a card of renewal and hope, of faith, inspiration and spiritual  

The image of the tower struck by lightening is meant to represent the human body.  The top of the tower is the head, which has been struck and thus symbolically separated from the body. This implies a separation of mind and emotions.  The tower is also a symbol of spiritual development.  This card is a focus on change, unexpected events and separations and represents the sudden and the unexpected. It indicates external circumstances, illuminated breakthroughs or shattered illusions, whether positive or negative, that ultimately force necessary change to overcome limitations.

  This represents power, strength, dominance, authority, will, conviction, protection and stability the masculine attributes (animus) that govern the material world. These attributes are symbolised by the sceptre, orb and the heraldic shield. This card represents the status of authority and power to which Everyman aspires and achieves by tapping into his inner strength and manifesting it - the power within. The Emperor card is one of authority and status, and the necessity of wielding power with responsibility. It relates to strength, power and success.   This card has a female figure symbolising the world.  The figure is occasionally called the Cosmos, Sophia, or Gaia.  This is the anima mundi or soul of the world. The elements of earth, fire, water and air are represented by the four tetramorphs in the four corners. The World card indicates assured success, a voyage, and goals achieved and reflects the successful culmination of one phase of life into another. This is accompanied by ultimate success, excitement and triumph as a new cycle begins.

The card represents hope, inspiration, faith and spiritual strength. A promise of peace, hope and healing depicted by the beautiful mermaid pouring from two urns. In this image, the stars of the Milky Way appear to fill the vessels, which are then emptied into the sea and land.  The brightest star in our galaxy, Sirius part of the constellation, Canis Major is portrayed in this card. Sirius, also known as Sothis was the marker star for the Egyptian Sothic calendar and is the dog at the heels of the hunter in the constellation of Orion. The Star is a card of renewal and hope, of faith, inspiration and spiritual nourishment. It is truly one of the most auspicious indicators of inner peace and assistance from the universe.   Sometimes called the Hanged Man, this card portrays a figure tied by a cord to the top of the image, and hanging seemingly unperturbed upside-down.  This is a commentary of man's inner state in relation to ordinary life. The Hanging Man indicates a rite of passage. A period of enduring delays, frustration and sacrifice ultimately leads to a changed perspective so that one emerges a wiser and a better person. The Hanging Man represents wisdom, circumspection, discernment, sacrifice, intuition, divination, prophecy and change.   This is the nadir of the human condition- the angst, searching and rawness of the human psyche. The positive, creative projection of inner fear is countered by the overactive imagination, the delusional and the hallucinogenic.  The moon operates in the realm of the subconscious. The wolf and the dog, representing two aspects - the tamed (intuitive wisdom) and the wild (instinctive, irrational fear), of the human psyche are in conflict. The Moon illuminates our deepest fears and emotional needs. Operating in the realm of the subconscious, our instinctive urges make their way through dreams, projection and imagination and bring to light our true hopes and needs.
 

Adam and Eve are traditionally represented in this card.  However, I have referred to an earlier version, which portrays Lilith as well. As this card symbolises choice, it seemed appropriate to illustrate Adam choosing between Lilith and Eve. The Lovers card represents attraction, love, beauty, romance, harmony and trials overcome. This card indicates attraction, love, beauty and romance. It is the need to learn how to chose with integrity, through the trials and tribulations love, a relationship that reflects our inner self worth before we can merge successfully with another.

The Fool, Gypsy vagabond, Adam or Everyman is setting out oblivious to the dangers surrounding him.  This card represents the essential self, the voyager setting out again in the cycle of death and rebirth. The Fool represents the hope, optimism and idealistic energy to follow one's heart and forge a new path in life. It is the choice necessary to bring about change and the trust required to take the first step toward one's beliefs.   Represented by a young girl reaching for the hand of the young boy, this card in its traditional interpretation symbolises material happiness, contentment, accomplishment and great success in all ventures. The Sun is the most joyous of all the cards, indicating all manner of happiness and success, both earned and deeply appreciated.

The Wheel of Fortune card represents the continuous flow of opportunity, in line with the natural flow and ebb of life. Coupled with previous efforts, it leads to luck and fortunes made or lost through choice of free will.

Symbolically, the four objects, coins and dice, the cup or thimble, the knife and the rod represent the tools or resources everyman is given. This is the inherent potential given to mankind, the material resources, emotional intuition, words and action, and elemental fire respectively. It is still the task of everyman to utilise these resources in order to realise his dreams.   The Death card is one of the most misunderstood and feared of all the
Tarot cards, until one realises that it is an indicator of powerful
change and transformation of an aspect of oneself through life's
lessons. It arises from the deep and often difficult transition from
one stage of our life to another, a necessary and all consuming
 

The Priestess card indicates the hidden and unseen realm of intuition and mystery that reside with us all. It relates to the untapped potential of our innermost feelings. It is this energy source that governs a mystic's powers, a mother's bond with her children and a businessman's gut instinct, alike.

  The Justice card indicates the results of the law of cause and effect, spiritually and materially. It depicts the consequences of action taken and the results thereof, rewarding one for good or ill. It therefore also relates to legal and financial affairs, as well as moral integrity.

Title: The Hierophant 30/30
Size: 19.5 x 13 cm
Medium: Etching
Price: R 1 500 Unframed
             

The Temperance card represents the synthesis of internal balance
flowing in harmony with one's environment, leading to peace and
fulfilment.

 

The Hermit card indicates a time of withdrawal and solitude, with a sense of wisdom and peace gained from a necessary time of introspection, to which answers are found only after a period of inner soul searching.

 

The Chariot is a powerful card of triumph through focus, discipline and action. By harnessing the dual forces of head and heart, body and spirit, courageous action overcomes fear and inertia and leads to victory and success.

  The Hierophant card indicates society and its structures, most overtly in the form of priest, guru, spiritual or cultural figureheads. It also has links with teaching, education and all types of institutions and societal rituals.

This is companion card to the Emperor card, and thus also represents the power and abundance of the feminine aspect (anima). Fertility, fecundity and fulfilling one's potential are the main meanings in this card. The sceptre, the shield with a rising eagle, and lush vegetation are representative of the positive aspect - the promise of abundant reward as a result of fruitful labour. The Empress is a card of fertility, creativity and bounty. It indicates the wealth of resources contained within Mother Earth, and the nurturing and sustaining energy within us all.
 

The Judgement card indicates a renewal of values and re awakening of the true essence of self, giving a new sense of purpose in life, as a result of assimilating past experiences.

  The Devil card represents the alluring temptation of lust, power,
greed and materialism, and depicts the struggle of confronting, and
overcoming, our deepest fears
