Tarot Card Meanings Our Inner Voice


Tarot Card Meanings Tarot card meanings as an inner voice is one of man’s techniques of attempting to put order and rhythm into what appears to be our chaotic and unpredictable lives.

Sun Scorpio Tarot Death


Sun Scorpio, Tarot Death Sun Scorpio, Tarot Death, illustrates the cycle of life that has little regard for individuality and is associated with the astrological sign of Scorpio.

Sun Enters Leo Tarot Strength


Leo Tarot Card Strength Leo, tarot card Strength symbolism, Sun in Leo. Is strength accepting the fruit, or refusing the fruit? As an example of a bicameral archetype for this card, Achilles is opportune because of his reactionary fixed  automatic responses to phenomena.  We should note however that his character expresses wrath and anger but not hate. When presented with a phenomena outside of himself, Achilles responds to voices from within himself.
