I had some old transparencies of paintings that I wanted to use to make a lantern. Never got around to it though, as I didn't have the right materials. Couple of days ago I found this lantern in a charity shop that was exactly what I was looking for. 😀 It has two panes of glass to slide a picture in and was pretty much perfect size for the transparencies I had. Talk about a great find. #lantern#candleholder#lamp#art#wangmingyu#transarency#lightbox#celluloid
#createthisoracledeck2018 prompt: favorite tarot symbol.
I decided to go with the hermits lantern. I don't know that I could really pick a favorite symbol of all time, but I can draw on symbols that I need for a time. During this challah get the hermits lantern called to me.
The hermit can be seen as a solitary figure, but the card is so much more then that. The hermit has left society, but he has important work that he needs to do. He wanders with his lantern lit so lost souls can find their way. It's a beacon. He will always take in the lost, feed and shelter then and put them on the right path home.
This is a message card I used the planet mercury to denote that. The hermit is closely associated with Virgo who analyzes. Her sign is mutable so it is an action. She is also an earth element so grounded in your unorthodox philosophy.
This beacon is lit you just need to open your eyes to see the way. Listen for messages and share your mission. Take in those that need shelter and be the change you wish to see in the world.
