Your browser does not support the video tag. The Tarot. Alejandro Jodorowsky. Il Matto ha un nome, ma non il numero. Il Matto rievoca un forte impulso di energia. Se si allontana dalla carta che lo precede, abbandona una situazione per apportare forza a un nuovo progetto, a un nuovo luogo, a una nuova relazione. Rappresenta allora una liberazione, una fuga materiale, emozionale, intellettuale o sessuale. In altre parole, questa carta pone il problema di sapere in quali condizioni versa l'energia del consultante, in che cosa egli impieghi le proprie energie.
A volte, quando si identifica con un personaggio, Il Matto rappresenta la follia o la leggerezza. E, naturalmente, un pellegrinaggio, un viaggio, una forza che si muove. The Magician bears the number one. This figure contains the whole in potential; it is like the original point from which a universe emerges.
For The Magician all is possible. He has a series of elements on the table in front of him that he can use as he pleases, and a pouch that is easily imagined to be inexhaustible, like a horn of plenty. From his table this figure acts toward the cosmos and toward spiritual life. Although represented by a male figure, The Magician is an androgynous individual working with light and shadow, juggling from the unconscious to the superconscious.
The Magician could be a prestidigitator who is hiding something under the table or, to the contrary, an initiate. The Magician indicates a beginning. Reasoning is quick. There is no lack of astuteness and talent; all that remains is to take action. In the family or the psychological world, this is the boy, the boy one still is even after forty years have passed, the boy one should have been if not born a woman, the boy that one has raised and the boy that one has trouble letting fly on his own wings, the boy one meets and with whom one is preparing to form a couple in which everything is to be invented.
The Magician shows that something is possible , that a new beginning can be made and that nothing is opposed to initiating a new action. His wand could represent a request for help or an inspiration waiting to be charged by a more mature force, or perhaps by the progress of maturity itself.
Even though he is the first of the Major Arcana and an initiate in his own right, The Magician still has a road to travel ahead of him. This is the card of the unity that must choose a way to take action. The High Priestess bears the number 2, which, in the most common numerology systems, is associated with duality. The High Priestess sits on an egg.
The first woman of the Major Arcana, she appears to us as a cloistered woman sitting next to an egg that is as white as her oval face. She is doubly in gestation, both herself and this egg. Symbol of total purity, The High Priestess reveals the intact part inside us that has never been wounded or touched, the virginal witness we carry, sometimes unknowingly, who represents for each of us a well of purification and trust, an unexploited virgin forest that is the source of much potential.
Her imprisonment within the convent, temple, or cloister is symbolized by the curtain hanging from the sky, which is also curling inward. The High Priestess has often been seen as an initiator or a sorceress.
The High Priestess will often refer to a female individual, the mother or grandmother who has handed down either an ideal of purity or an authoritarian coldness. She will also incarnate the cold mother, the sexless woman, who finds justification in a religious ideal or morality, and who does not know how to be tender.
But her demand for purity can put us on the trail of a woman of high spiritual stature, a priestess, a therapist, a female guide , who could be of any age. In love, The High Priestess is ready to form a couple based on the union of souls. The book she is holding can also direct us to the concerns connected to study or writing of the subject of the reading. The High Priestess then becomes a writer, the plan for a book or any other kind of work, the gestation necessary for an action, even an actress who has received a role to study, or an accountant, or a meticulous reader.
Or even the Virgin Mary in person. Cloistered, The High Priestess evokes isolation, waiting, or solitude—of her own choice or imposed upon her. Her white color can suggest a desire to be reheated by amorous, spiritual, or creative passion.
Sexually, she at best represents sublimation and at worst frustration. The answer to the mystery of The High Priestess may perhaps be found in her attitude toward the egg accompanying her. If she incubates it in lofty solitude and is guided by high standards, a living god may be born from it.
The Empress, like all the cards of the third level, signifies a bursting without experience. Everything that accumulated in the second level explodes in thunderous fashion, not knowing where to go.
It is the transition from virginity to creativity; it is the egg that opens to life and allows the nestling to emerge. In this sense The Empress comes back to the energy of the adolescent with its extreme vital strength, its seduction, its lack of experience. This is also a period of life when full growth is taking place, when the body has the potential for exceptional regeneration. This is also the age of puberty, the discovery of desire and sexual power. The Empress will inspire thoughts of creativity , the female part of the individual, or even a woman full of fire and energy, animated by a boiling enthusiasm.
She is the soul of adolescence with its joyous fanaticism, its inability to recognize the consequences of its actions, its faith in action for the sake of action. This card is also, when drawn in a reading for an elderly person, the rebirth of an energy thought long vanished. The Empress recalls the dreams of youth and urges us to fantasize from them, a thirst for the absolute that may well have been forgotten. This card will also evoke all the same associations for a man, or simply a seductive woman who has appeared in his life.
In her splendor, The Empress is also a woman of power, warm-hearted but capable of dominating impulses. She loves to conceive and to rule. Seen under a more injurious aspect, The Empress can also indicate an opportunity to act that was missed or, in contrast, a thoughtless action. She can also refer to sterility, a negative image of woman, a female energy sexual, creative, intellectual, emotional that was blocked during adolescence.
The hand resting on the shield is ambiguous: it can be seen as an outside element that has taken possession of this woman, one that has sought to imprison or reduce her. When expression is frustrated, abused, or limited, The Empress becomes capable of resentment, maliciousness, and venality. But when she is enthroned at the peak of her nurturing power, we learn that everything living can be seen in her beauty. The Emperor bears the number 4, associated with stability like the design of the square, the very symbol of material security.
A 4 is incapable of falling unless there is a large revolution. With it, the laws of the universe are soundly established. Just as the feminine Empress has a male core, The Emperor is accompanied by a receptive eagle, in full incubation like The High Priestess.
Is he absorbing her power, or is he supporting himself on her? The figure can be seen seated and stable or, to the contrary, already standing propped against his throne, ready to act if he so desires.
He is strength at rest. The Emperor will easily represent the father figure as the central constituent element of the personality. The direction he is looking can orient us upon the centers of interest to a father: is it toward the family, or toward the outside? Toward his daughter, his wife, his son? Toward his own parents? Well placed, The Emperor evokes a stable companion and protector and a balanced home. For a young man, it could also pose the question of masculinity: how has it been passed down by the father, what are the means of fulfilling oneself as a man in reality?
Questions concerning money and economicsecurity are also connected to this card. A figure of earthly power, The Emperor is seen in profile. Perhaps his gaze is so intense it could disintegrate us …. The Pope bears the number 5. This number has evolved from a complete foundation in reality the number 4 to acquire an objective beyond its position.
The Pope takes one more step than The Emperor ; he establishes a bridge that makes it possible to proceed toward this ideal. In his activity as teacher or pontiff, he is receptive to the upper realm, Heaven, and active in the lower realm, Earth. What he receives from on high, he transmits beneath him to his disciples. Similarly, he transmits the prayers of his students to the deity, thereby joining Heaven and Earth.
We could say that he represents the point where opposites meet, the center of the cross between high and low, left and right. He is therefore a site of circulation among these different poles, which are able to communicate through him. The Pope could represent a master, a teacher, or a guide, but also an idealized paternal figure the acolytes would then symbolize his children , a married man, a saint. He also symbolizes an act of communication , a union, a marriage, and all the means used for communication.
As a bridge or pontiff, The Pope evokes a guided communication that knows where it is heading. After the accumulation of The High Priestess preparing for birth, the aimless bursting forth of The Empress , and the stability of The Emperor, The Pope brings an ideal.
While remaining part of the material world, he points the way to an ideal dimension with certainty. VI represents in Tarot numerology the first step into the square of Heaven. It is the time when we stop imagining what would please us to begin doing what we like. The major tone of this card concerns pleasure and emotional life. This is the very reason why it is so complex and so rich in conflicting meanings.
It opens the field to countless projections, and a thousand meanings can be attributed to it, each of which can be right at a given moment. What is taking place with this trio? Is it a quarrel, haggling, a choice, a union? The two figures on the left are looking at each other, while the one on the right is looking off into space.
