Six of Coils Gatemaker of Coils Eight of Blades VI Connection
FIRE: Inspiration, creativity, intuition, timing.
Six of Coils:
Iron bracelets shaped like the coldwater Pacific Giant Kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera). Repetitive designs show the rootlike holdfast, leaflike blades, and floating gas bladders. Deep memories become part of the body, and are released in clear flute music and the rhythm of ocean currents and surf.
WATER: Feelings, emotions, attachments, subconscious.
Gatemaker of Coils: Air of Water.
She peers from the misty cypress swamp into a lake or river, and calls the paddlefish water spirits. Compassionate and trusting, she inspires songs and poetry that express the strangest or most frightening feelings and visions so they can be shared in beauty.
AIR: Thought, intellect, conflict, communication.
Eight of Blades:
A woman with shorn hair covers her eyes from the sight of braids hung like trophies on a throwing star, and does see the garden tool that will cut through the roots of obstructions.
EARTH: Material world, physical body, work, skill or craft.
VI - Connection (The Lovers):
Two women draw with charcoal on a turtle shell, and combine their visions at the center. The iron ring shows six ways to join two pieces of iron, each progressively hotter, more permanent, and less reversible - a reminder to be aware but not fearful of one's level of commitment to a person, place, or idea.
