Sun Enters Leo Tarot Strength and Bicameral Theory


Tarot Strength Bicameral Theory Is strength taking 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. He is, to all intense and purposes, a puppet  animated and manipulated by the strings of hallucinating voices of ancestors and Gods. These automatic responses are recurrent throughout the Iliad. However, when we examine the Odyssey, with […]

Cryptic Sphinx. A Mythological Being From Ancient Times Relevant in the Perpetual Present


Cryptic Sphinx The cryptic sphinx epitomizes awareness of a possible  event and she is symptomatic of hazard, implying an appearance of a new situation or enterprise. As the enigmatic unknown She is the as yet to be revealed future. We are not initially cognizant of consequences resulting from our engagement in her speculative opportunity, not realizing the answer to her riddle will be through our life journey.  Our voyage of opportunity is revealed through oracular revelation, which through life experience, leads to interpretation of her initial cryptic emergence. Mystery is energy and when the sphinx loses her mystery she dies. […]
