As requested, another image from Irmgard Hofmann-Barth’s 1990 Egyptian Tarot. This time it’s the Death card. It doesn’t look particularly Egyptian but it’s an attractive design. We see the astrological sign for Scorpio bottom right, which seems a suitable connection, and the sign for the modern planetary ruler of Scorpio, Pluto (traditionally it’s Mars). While Mars represents war, anger, passion, action; Pluto represents life, death, and regeneration. A rather cheerful skeleton dominates the right side of the card with a long scythe with a (blood) red handle. What I like best is the eye catching group of three creatures on the left, all linked with Scorpio: at the bottom a bright red scorpion, colour-coordinated with Death’s scythe, in the middle a green serpent and at the top an Eagle. Astronomically these represent two constellations bear Scorpio: Ophiuchus/ Serpentarius (Serpent-Bearer) and Aquila (Eagle). They represent higher octaves of Scorpio, both still dangerous predators, but the serpent is regeneration and wisdom, the eagle the ability to rise above things with higher insight and perception. Snakes are known for shedding their skin (and scorpions their carapace). According to medieval bestiaries aging eagles are fed by their young, grow new feathers and are rejuvenated! #esotericism #alchemy #alchemist #magick #cabala #kabbalah #occult #occultism #hermestrismegistus #history #library #museum #astrology #hermeticism #amsterdamhermetica #westernesotericism #tarot #raretarot #deathcard #scorpio #serpent #scorpion #eagle

The Castello della Rotta is considered to be one of the scariest places in Italy. Many claim that your guaranteed to have a run in with at least one of the many spirits still lingering within the castle walls, and that's because there's such a large number of entities that remain... 👻 And their not bashful! Witnesses have reported that the castle’s gardens and rooms are haunted by a full on church procession, a knight riding his horse and a priest that gets a little tiffed if you don't let him read his book. This is just one of the locations we're discussing on this weeks Creatures of the night paranormal Podcast.

ПОДНЕБЕСНАЯ. Я научилась рисовать такие картинки много лет назад. Те, кто учил, говорят, что они простираются гораздо дальше плоскости листа. Это 3д рисунки. Переливающиеся разными красками, изменяющие свою форму. Я умею только рисовать и вижу то, что и все - картинку на плоскости. Но, зная то, как рисуется такая картинка, я убеждена, что всё, что мне говорили о ней - правда. Когда-то держала толстую книгу в руках об этих рисунках. Но ничегошеньки не понимала в ней. Желаю увидеть всю картину. Надеюсь, что когда-нибудь сумею. Кто-нибудь знает об этих космических рисунках? Может умеет рисовать? Видеть? Расскажите! CELESTIAL EMPIRE. I learned to draw such pictures many years ago. Those who have taught say that they extend far beyond the plane of the leaf. These are 3D drawings. Shimmering with different colors, changing their shape. I can only draw and see what everyone else sees-a picture on a plane. But knowing how such a picture is drawn, I am convinced that everything I have been told about it is true. Once I held a thick book in my hands about these drawings. But I didn't understand a thing about it. I want to see the whole picture. I hope that one day I can. Does anyone know about these cosmic drawings? May know how to draw? See?

The alchemical symbolism continues on the other side of the alchemical medallion, but in a figurative way, with a composite Saturn/Kronos, with his scythe, wooden leg and large wings, leading a surprisingly non-volatile Mercury, on his hands and knees and bound to Saturn by a chain. In the heavens above we see the sun shining down on this scene, with the words “Tandem” (At last), “Per Me” (Through Me). Mercury’s message is “Sine Me Nihil” (Without Me Nothing), which is actually a quote from John 15:5, where Jesus says ‘I am the vine: you the branches: he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing.’ Saturn says “Si Voluero” (If I wished) or perhaps “Si Volvero” (If I should be changed [?]). Mercury on the ground certainly suggests that he has been “fixed”, a necessary stage in creating the Stone. Apparently there are words around the edge: “Dum & Cornua Assumit Soror Fit Pater [elsewhere I read Mater] Fratris Sui” (And while the Sister takes the horns she is made the Father [Mother] of her Brother). This must relate to the sign for gender-fluid Mercury which contains the horned crescent moon. From previous posts you will know that Mercury is the substance that unites the Sun and Moon, sometimes represented as the brother and sister, Apollo and Diana. See my 23 Feb post on the pairing of Mercury on Saturn in Nicolas Flamel and Abraham Eleazar. #esotericism #alchemy #alchemist #magick #cabala #kabbalah #occult #occultism #hermestrismegistus #history #library #museum #astrology #hermeticism #amsterdamhermetica #westernesotericism #Saturn #kronos #mercurius #medallion #talisman #amulet

An 18th-century alchemical medallion, possibly a talisman! This is the front with a monogram consisting of the symbols for Sulphur, Salt and Mercury (I like the imaginative way the solar circle and horizontal crescent moon of the top of the glyph for Mercury allude to the 2 intertwined snakes on Mercury’s Caduceus. Above these 3 Paracelsian principles of matter stands the Sun, Philosophical Gold. The phrase “Trinum in Uno” (Three in One) reminds us that the 3 principles manifest perfectly in the Philosophers’ Stone (which transmutes base metals into gold). This message is reinforced by the triangle within the flames, which of course relate to the Sun, but also to Alchemy itself, which is sometimes called the Art of Fire. #esotericism #alchemy #alchemist #magick #cabala #kabbalah #occult #occultism #hermestrismegistus #history #library #museum #astrology #hermeticism #amsterdamhermetica #westernesotericism #Saturn #kronos #mercurius #medallion #talisman #amulet

In the temperance zone between fire 🔥 and water 💧 our cups runneth over...the marriage of fire and water brings steam, which raises metal clarity- two chariots, two sets of wings- the Lion, the Eagle, the Serpent and the Lotus- Im a Scorpio- I’ll have mine with a side of fish and salamander- how beautiful to have the symmetry of the princes coming out of a Libra ♎️ moon 🌝? #princeofwands #princeofcups #goldendawntarot #tarotdeck #tarotcommunity #tarotreadersofinstagram #tarotreading #symbolism #qabalah #divinetruth #mysticaljourney #fireandwater #chalice #9ofcups #goldendawn #higherfrequency #esotericknowledge #esotericism #hiddenwisdom #wisdomseeker #tarotreading #tarotmysterium #tarotSisterSara #spiritualjourney #energyhealing #mysticism #tarotmeditation #divinatorytools #spiritualpath #tarotforgrowthapril

Although this quote is representative of The Magician in the Tarot it parallels the ideology of the Strength card. I think that explains it superficially enough 😂 . . .

Fighting off hatred of self and more especially of others or their actions can be one of the biggest challenges of all, but once successful in the art of forgiveness everything seems to be all right. . . . #esoteric #esotericism #hermetic #hermeticism #occult #occultism #mystic #mysticism #magic #magick #selfcontrol
