War – Abatu

Posted in The Sinister Tarot with tags , , , , on June 30, 2009 by cosmion

In a dungeon, a bed of fire

From an exploded sphere

Red butterflies

With a look

The war begun

A sexless mask

In the caves of the sea…16-War-ABATU

WAR – ABATU

Conflict; the clashing of visions and destinies. The attempt by others to wrest away the Destiny of one individual and thus disrupt the greater Wyrd. A clouding of vision that creates doubts, lack of direction, susceptibility to outside forces and possibly, if insight is lost, the renouncing of a quest. The hardship imposed by the consequence of actions, but by the suffering such striving imposes. Wisdom – and Destiny – may be attained. Awareness of those factors – such as other people – that may fulfill Destiny, and the hard practical realities of striving to create this fulfillment. Sadness and wisdom and creativity through loss.

Star – Nemicu

The blue statue

His red eyes survey the maze

Bringer of wisdom

The perfect child

And the tetrahedron

Bathing hair in the Dark Pool

Successor…17-Star-NEMICU

STAR – NEMICU

The maturity and bringing to fulfillment of that promise represented by Atus VI and VIII. Knowledge of identity, of Wyrd and what needs to be done. A coming of age; the seed of change blossoms. Domination: the successful establishment of a causal structure; a process, the effects of which are irreversible once the cause is triumphant on whatever level. The beginnings of Imperium.

Moon – Shugara

Posted in The Sinister Tarot with tags , on June 27, 2009 by cosmion

A frog reveals human heads

Within its mouth

Furrowed white fields

White, snow laden trees –

Her face, caught by the Moon;

Her eyes come to know the Pool,

Take the spiral staircase to the Blue room…18-Moon-SHUGARA

MOON – SHUGARA

That which has not yet been confronted within the psycheof the individual; that which is strange, which lies outside the scope of any world view; that which lies within the Dark Pool beneath the moon and threatens to devour, create madness.A stage which cannot be ignored if further development is sought, requiring a descent to draw out that which is obscure, fearfully hidden: the gateway to the Abyss. A point from which there is no turning back; that which leads to rebirth via death.
