What this card means... To have a moment of truth! An Ah-ha that opens up an entirely new dimension of thought and realization. It pertains to axioms and maxims that go unquestioned.

Card messages associated with Illuminated position.

+ Truth

(Veritas, actuality, principle, rectitude, authenticity)

  1. Truth forces liberation from acceptable ignorance. A revelation is coming. What you thought was true will be altered.
  2. “And the Truth shall make you free.” Jesus did not say “set you free”. Religions want you to believe that only they can save you with their doctrine. It takes courage followed by responsibility to live from truth. Have you embraced them?
Quotations that Reflect this Pole
  • “It is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts… For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst, and to provide for it.” Patrick Henry
  • “Tell the truth and run.” Yugoslavian Proverb
  • “There are trivial truths and great truths. The opposite of a trivial truth is plainly false. But the opposite of a great truth is also true.” Neils Bohr
  • “The truth is rarely pure and never simple.”  Oscar Wilde

Card messages associated with Shadow position.

– Telepathy

(Projection, transference, expectation,)

  1. Read the thoughts and control the person. This is the shadow use of this expanded capability that telepathy portends. It makes a communication a quietus action and eliminates response. It is an imbalance of power. Are you trying to gain advantage by reading someone’s mind?
  2. Believing that someone should know what you’re thinking is a recipe for disaster. Ask! Ask! Ask!

These distinctions only make sense if you have had the infamous ah-ha moment of realization, or a revelation, or a blinding flash of genius, when some information or concept comes completely out of the blue.

Issac Newton has such a moment when the apple dropped out of the tree and into history. Albert Einstein had the same revelation when he saw image of a train and realized the light must travel faster because it always preceded the thing…and we have Relativity.
