The World: Gaia:


Who appears, seemingly in the firing line of the planets lined up for, or against, her, like giant billiard balls in a game of planetary snooker, Jupiter directing the eye of his giant "red spot" upon her, benevolently/malevolently, Saturn and all the rest not far behind? This pristine blue smoky marble of a planet without borders, hung like an icon on the black velvet backdrop of the 3rd millenium iconostasis? Within her crust and mantle, her old sea-beds and molten lava core, Gaia (pron. "Gee-a") seems the oldest divinity of all, wreathed in ancient Mayan smiles, and laughing all the way to god knows where, her final destination in the uncharted waters of space, through which she makes her way as gracefully as any turtle. She won't get there tomorrow, maybe, but get there she will (remember the fable of the hare and the tortoise).

As Anima Munda or Quinta Essentia, this Gaia is one hell of an image. Do you know which deck this if from? It definitely must go on my must have list.

The Lovecraft Tarot, i.e. based on the gothic horror stories of H.P.Lovecraft; at first I hated it, thought it impossible to read with, and then did a reading for Sebi which taught me to "stop worrying and love it", remember? I let facade.com choose the deck for me ;-))
