This week we explore the Lord of Truce or Peace Restored; the 4 of Swords represents a moment of sweet relief between the sorrows of the 3 and the Pyrrhic battles of the 5. Benevolent Jupiter rules over this decan of measured Libra, allowing cooler heads to win the day. For a moment, all the forces of the Wheel are in alignment. All parties agree, though their détente may not be destined to last.
In our episode we discuss what conflicts precede and follow this truce; what greatness of mind allows it. We consider St. Andrew and the saltire cross, the loaves and fishes, the moment of inertia and the tightrope walker's pole, the refuge of structure, Nemesis, Tyche, and Agathos Daimon, the knight's vigil, the vajra as thunderbolt, the rose of 49 petals, the isolation of the hermit and the religious retreat, compromises and diplomacy, and a pause in the dance of Justice and the Fool.
For this week's giveaway, we have a Fortune's Wheelhouse tee shirt to give out. Since the card is a "double Jupiter" card, the winner can choose one of the Wheel related tee shirts we have in stock, either with the Fortune card from Tabula Mundi, or the FW wheel logo. Should none of our available color/size choices work, in the spirit of compromise and truce for the 4, we can instead offer a choice of other cool stuff from our RedBubble store. (We have T-shirts, notebooks, hardcover journals, tote bags, and studio zip pouches.)
