Medicine Wheel and Tarot Suits
Attributes of the Medicine Wheel and Tarot suits:
- Yellow : Wands : Fire
A tribute to the East. Where the new beginnings of creation stir at the cusp of dawn. With the rising sun, a dawning of something greater overwhelms us. As the new warmth presses upon us, our own divine spark ignites and we are aware of far more potential in life than ever before. In this spiritually-focused quadrant, the intangible self lives vibrantly and scintillates creative wisdom.
- Black : Pentacles : Earth
A tribute to the West. When we trace the path of the setting sun, our eyes are left looking upon the earth's body. With this earthy, grounded vision we contemplate the material, and the bounty borne from the mouth of matter. In this physically-focused quadrant, the roots of our own bodies mingle with mass. We understand totality.
- White : Swords : Air
A tribute to the North. Science and knowledge accumulated through our life cycles has purified, and trickles from the tips of ice-capped mountains of wisdom. As these trickles of knowing move to our awareness, we prepare for Intellectual illumination. In this mentally-focused quadrant, the greatest reaches of our comprehension roll back into us, causing avalanches of deductive reason.
- Red : Cups : Water
A tribute to the South. A dive into liquid bloodlines reveals the music of undulating emotions. We submerge into renewing waters where we lean into the cosmic aortic pulse. Each beat of our collective heart mixes our life waters, and we experience whole love. In this emotionally-focused quadrant, we softly feel our way into a greater current. We understand unity.
