This week on Fortune's Wheelhouse, the last Ace materializes on our earthly plane: silent, magical, and profound. Is it a pentacle? a disk? a coin? Even its name is a mystery! In this final suit, we finally encounter the world we know best: our round globe, the four directions, our five senses, our physical bodies and all creation. Whatever you call them - pentacles or disks, still or spinning - they stand encased and crystallized, set a little apart from the forces that produced them. Oblivious as they are to their origin, they are literally the whole point of the matter.
In our episode we discuss: the talismanic nature of pentacles and the spinning motion of disks, and their relationship to the World or Universe card, ever searching for union with the divine: the 5 of the human pentagram becoming the 6 of the divine hexagram. We discuss sleeping beauties, the sign of silence, the season of Aries-Taurus-Gemini, the active and passive forms of Horus, Heh final in the Tetragrammaton, the active and passive forms of Horus, the power to keep silent, the Song of Solomon, the Great Beast and the Scarlet Woman, Osiris, Sobek, the anima mundi, the maker's mark, the cosmic on button, seeds, fruits, clocks, gates, paths, gardens, mountains. In short: everything and nothing!
The Ace of Disks contains everything that is, and a tarot deck contains everything that can be known. Connecting everything there is with everything that can be known is the art of the reader. My new online tarot course, The Living Tarot, offers readers of every level of experience a way of making those connections, and for this week's giveaway we're offering one lucky winner a spot in the course - a $150 value.
