Gaia and The Goddess

During the month of January ’18, I’ll be posting articles that were written by my teacher Stuart Wilde on the top of Nature, Gaia and The Goddess. Stuart was a Taoist.

The Magician Card Emerald Tolemac

Here we see Merlin the Magician with his right arm lifted and his hand holding a wand (earth) pointing to the sky (air) and creating the sign of Infinity (timelessness) in the air above him with the wand. The left arm is essentially hanging at his side (earth), the forearm lifted enough to allow the hand to form the letter “M” that we see in sign language when deaf people communicate. This simply reinforces the M needed for the Mastery that is required when one fuses their base self with their higher self and becomes the Magician. Continue Reading
