Two of Spikes: An Eyed Click Beetle watches between torches that burn smoldering incense and flaming scented oil. Its real eyes are hidden and the obvious patterned ones are false - or a mask. The view is of two worlds at once, a choice between equally powerful opposites.

Ten of Coils: A chain of interlocking snails becomes more than the sum of its links, and conjures a new growing spirit-snail that is the essence of its wholeness.
|AIR: Thought, intellect, conflict, communication.
Apprentice of Blades: Earth of Air. She holds a winter orchid (Aplectrum hyemale) and an ancient Greenland eskimo knife, cold-hammered from a flake of meteorite iron.

|EARTH: Material world, physical body, work, skill or craft.
Nine of Bells: A sistrum with pods, cone bells, and flat jingles. Ancient instrument of the Goddess, its intricate shapes and many-voiced sounds speak of triumphant accomplishment as a masterpiece is revealed and consecrated in ritual.
