Two Coins, one a golden Sun is above the other, a silver Moon. A Lion's head, the King of Coins, devours an Eagle, the King of Swords, but the task is unfinished because they are really one being. This Fixation of the Volatile represents bringing thoughts from the higher unconsciousness into consciousness or reason. The Lion and the Eagle are joined with a serpent's body holding the conscious thought, the Sun, and unconscious thought, the Moon, together as one. But in the same way they are being held close together they are also being held apart. The rays in the background represent illumination; the Fixation of the Volatile is a process in the Great Work. It is the washing of the blackening that leads directly to the whitening.
