“Mother of Swords”
This piece was inspired by the sign of Aquarius and the Star tarot card…
Though a fixed air sign living in the clouds, she is the water bearer, connecting to the elements through her ability to carry other’s emotions without letting them effect her personally. She sheds those watery emotions onto both the land, the material world, and back to it’s source in the river, the subconscious world. She is skilled at recycling emotions, transmuting them, and guiding them to be purified and neutralized by the land and river, all the while, staying unattached and calling for change.
One of her ruling planets, Uranus, is a master of revolution, rebellion, and shaking up the status quo. There in lies Aquarius’ powers to lead. Oftentimes she feels alone in her power, for her desire for individuation, innovation, and personal freedom run through her blood with a mighty current. It is deeply important for Aquarius to learn how to balance their desire for outer revolution with their need for an inner revolution, to shine their light on their shadows.
This visual talisman is intended to invoke the energies of Aquarius, promoting clarity of thought, effective communication, innovation, and to get comfortable with your authentic power.
