Goddess on Fire


A flaming fleur de lys, symbol of the goddess inflamed. All the threes are cards of Binah, the great dark mother of the tree of life, signifying the creation (and destruction) of form. Creative creativity at it’s purest. The raw force of the two has been refined and set to work. It’s happy to have been civilized and to find a purpose in life. And as yet it has encountered no obstacles to its enthusiastic expansion. This card symbolizes a pure passion for manifestation. Certainly one of the cards that was a real joy to paint and a relief after the oppressive gloom of Sorrow. The elemental energy of Dominion has been moderated by the higher self, which is the central staff topped by a lotus bud. When energy is purified and balanced it becomes bountiful and full of grace.
