VIII Crystallization Shaman of Blades Six of Blades
MAJOR ARCANA: The lesson, challenge, gift, or opportunity in this situation.
VIII - Crystallization (Justice):
A pyrite "sun" dissolves in black acid springwater and reprecipitates as crystals and a sparkling coating on three hazelnuts that have fallen into the water. Balance is sometimes maintained in unexpected ways that are difficult to recognize unless viewed objectively.
SPIRIT GUIDE: An aspect of yourself to draw on or develop.
Shaman of Blades: Fire of Air.
Masked as a snowy owl, she holds claw-shaped ceremonial knives on poles that claim land. She uses a bone spiritcatcher to capture, keep, and transmit lost souls with her breath, and travels to the Upperworld on reindeer antler bridges. She is the guardian of sacred places, spirit speaker, interpreter of nature.
NUMBER CARD: A focus for action or something that needs attention.
Six of Blades:
A heron of wooded swamps and a sandhill crane of the prairies entwine bird scissors. A bird-masked person reaches the end of a long journey and leaves her boat to swim in disguise to an unknown shore. Hope dawns and solid ground is reached when Science, Art, and Spirit are one.
