The wheel is always turning, never stagnant thus you never know what destiny has planned for you next. What is sure though is that this card is representing game changing.
On the wheel itself you can read the word rota wheel , taro, tora, and the symbols for YHVH. They can also be seen as the creatures of Ezekiel, or the four beasts in the Revelation. I like that they have chosen the card for Jun since it also sneaks in the fixed Zodiac motif that is so important in IS. You can also see symbols for mercury, sulpuhur, water and salt as well a sphinx, the god Anubis and the snake giant Typhon. Once he joins your team after Caracol he repents and wants to atone for temporarily becoming Joker.
He does have moments where he despairs like in Xibalba but since he adapts to the new change by having the other Masked Circle members back in his life again he moves on forward. I think that Jun on purpose had to have his downwards and upwards spirals to properly respresent this card since fate has to push him back and forth.

Madonna and Four Evangelists - Vittorio Zecchin. Book of Kells Ireland. One reason could be that this name is even more in-yer-face with its connotations than others. I guess the Druck people probably wanted to use another name cause Lucas was already taken at that point? Not that this stopped skam spain or skam nl.

Tetramorph and the Four Corners of Tarot – Sasha Graham's Tarot Diva Blog
The eagle was a vulture in their tradition. Hi Lori. Great post. I think this link might interest you. Post a Comment. May 10, Christ in Mandorala, and the " Four Evangelists". The mother of Joseph's sons, Manasseh and Ephraim, was Asenath, daughter of Potipherah, Egyptian priest of On, but they are considered "Rachel tribes" because of their grandmother. Since there were twelve tribes, it is natural to assume that some correlation with the twelve signs of the zodiac was intended or, if it was not intended, that it is at least feasible. Given the passion for correspondences among scholars of these matters and the necessity for them among magicians, it would seem to be desirable to come up with some sensible correlation.
Indeed, MacGregor Mathers attempted to assign the tribes to the signs in a logical fashion in his essay, "Twelve Signs and Twelve Tribes," reprinted in R. However, even though these attributions were used in ritual in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn particularly in the consecration of the Lotus Wand , not everyone has chosen to accept them as Holy Writ. Any attempt to attribute astrological signs to the twelve tribes must first of all, it would seem, arrive at some logical and definite order for the tribes. The order of birth has already been given, although some confusion may arise when one substitutes Manasseh and Ephraim for Levi.
Joseph's sons were born after all the others, but they could be said to substitute for Joseph and therefore precede Benjamin.
A description in the second chapter of Numbers puts the twelve tribes in four camps at the cardinal points and designates their marching order as that listed below:. Hall's Secret Teachings of All Ages, in attributing the jewels on the breastplate of the High Priest to the tribes.
This is another correspondence question where there is little agreement. I have also seen an attribution [in Kenneth Mackenzie's Royal Masonic Cyclopedia, , for example] based on the order of birth and including Levi and Joseph instead of Manasseh and Ephraim. The listing in Numbers is the order adapted by Halevi in attributing the signs of the zodiac, beginning with Aries.
Mathers begins his list with Leo , but, because of various considerations, does not then follow the order of the zodiac. The twelve tribes of Israel and their associated astrological signs according to Mathers and Halevi are shown in the below table. At first glance, Halevi's list may seem more logical, but Mathers—correctly in my opinion—attributed the four main tribes or camps—Judah East , Reuben South , Ephraim West , and Dan North —to the fixed signs of the zodiac, the four tetramorphs of the vision of Ezekiel; namely, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius bull, lion, eagle, and man.
His other attributions, however, are based on rather liberal and strained interpretations of the descriptions given in Genesis 49 and Deuteronomy 33—that, and the standards or armorial bearings of the various tribes which are said to have their origins in Freemasonry , as if the sons of Joseph had been English peers. For example, he attributes Gad to Aries because the descriptions fit the "martial and dominant nature of Aries. Mathers rather eccentrically insisted on beginning the zodiac in Leo at the star Regulus; hence Judah falls to Leo. Another reason for this assignment is that Genesis says that "Judah is a lion's whelp.
Of course, the New Testament refers to Jesus as the lion of Judah. Gematria proves of very little help, here. Capricorn, Gedi, is 17, so perhaps gur arieh indicates the martial aspect 25 of Capricorn. That idea, however, does not seem to lead anywhere, especially in view of the fact that the appellation is applied to two separate tribes. But one might consider that, although the progression of the signs is clockwise on a horoscope , it is counterclockwise in the heavens as seen from earth.
Based on this ritual, and the placing of Leo in the East to accord with the primacy given to this sign by Mathers, we could come up with this list of attributions:. Note that half and only half of this list coincides with that of Mathers. If, on the other hand, you wish to give no special importance to the fixed signs and follow Halevi in the assignment of Judah to Aries, but follow the counterclockwise scheme, you get this, which I personally consider altogether unsatisfactory or at least unsatisfying :. One might also consider whether, at the time of the Exodus, the Vernal Equinox might not have been in Taurus.
That would require a date previous to something like BC, which is unlikely, but the nomadic Jews had no astrology of their own and may have borrowed what they knew from an ancient Chaldean culture in the Taurean Age. How else can one explain the prominence throughout scripture of the fixed signs of the zodiac? The four tetramorphs play a central role in the vision of Ezekiel, and they are said to correspond to the four evangelists of the New Testament.

They are used to this day in Golden Dawn ceremony and in rituals based on those of the Golden Dawn. Aside from the fact that three of the four constellations in question are rather conspicuous Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio , there is really no way to account for this emphasis except to assume that it came from a period when these four constellations marked the equinoxes and solstices.
In any case, the tribe dominant in the East—that is, Judah—would then naturally fall to Taurus. Applying the "counterclockwise concept," we end up with this list:. This scheme accords with Deuteronomy by having Dan as the "lion's whelp. We can also come up with a number of schemes by assuming that the three tribes in each camp represent zodiacal triplicities that is, Fire signs, Water signs, and so on.
However, that does not seem as likely to have been intended as an attribution that follows the circle of the zodiacal belt. We have so far assumed that the order of the tribes that should be used is that of the encampment and marching order described in the second chapter of Numbers. But we might also want to consider the order of birth and various other orderings that occur in scripture. Ebal to curse. Besides the business about Judah and the lion's whelp, we can likewise consider other beasts and elements prominent in the descriptions of the sons of Jacob included in his blessing in Genesis Reuben water , Zebulun sea , Issachar ass , Dan serpent , Naphtali hind , and Benjamin wolf.
This really doesn't seem to get us very far, however. Benjamin could be either Aries or Scorpio, the signs ruled by Mars because of its association with the wolf. But the ass and the hind have no clearcut astrological associations. As with most questions of this kind, nothing can be said to be absolutely correct.

Nevertheless, despite the apparent difficulties with the system of Mathers its evidently arbitrary nature and the fact that the signs do not follow in order according to the encampment , I must render the decision in his favor. There is nothing to recommend Halevi's Kenton's system except a certain superficial common sense in placing Aries in the East with Judah. I have already gone into the more-or-less compelling reasons to allot the four camps to the four fixed signs, with Judah for Leo despite the remark about Dan.
Besides, the system presented by Mathers in his essay is not, as most people think, original with him. It duplicates without alteration the system found in the great Albert Pike's mammoth Masonic opus, Morals and Dogma Mathers was, of course, a Freemason, as were the other founders of the Golden Dawn.
