VII The Road Gatemaker of Coils Six of Coils
MAJOR ARCANA: The lesson, challenge, gift, or opportunity in this situation.
VII - The Road (The Chariot):
Horsehead blacksmith tongs, symbol of the smith's skill and control, hold purifying horsetail flywhisks. Eyed hammers shape a horsehoe, ready for travel. When forging, the smith's eye is on the work, not her tools, and her mind is always a step ahead in the shaping. Her spirit rides the rhythm of the hammer.
SPIRIT GUIDE: An aspect of yourself to draw on or develop.
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.
NUMBER CARD: A focus for action or something that needs attention.
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.
