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.

Sun Enters Gemini, Tarot Card Lovers Gemini Sun tarot card Lovers represents  the duality of our brain on the point of becoming conscious. The duality of the brain is illustrated by the union of the Maiden and the Serpent. The figure descending from the sky is the appearance of human consciousness, self awareness. Inspiration for my depiction of the Lovers card came from Paolo Uccello’s  painting of Saint George and the Dragon.
