step 8, part 1 ~Vampyres~


8-1-1: Five of Pentacles in the Tarot of Vampyres:
* she is a willing victim
* she wants to be seduced by the werewolf
* learning to be patient
* rapture
* opposites and splits: black and white, good and evil, death and life, blue and red (the roses in the card), the two tombstones
* union of opposites cannot be achieved by ´tour-de-force´
* transformation, shapeshifting
* Drama Queen

8-1-2: Generally for Fives and Pentacles
* courage, strength
* holy number of the Goddess
* mothering, nurturing
* physical manifestation
* Mother Nature
* security, prosperity, practical, concrete
* groundedness, trust
* the need to ”walk our talk”
* torment, suffering, ill health, worry, crisis, loss

8-1-3: I think most of them probably work for this Five of my chosen deck. The card can indicate ill health and suffering (the sharp claws of the werewolf above her stomach) and there is also a lot of trust since she is allowing the werewolf to be there. She doesn´t look like she is suffering much, though.hm..
She is not dead either because she in one of the undead. She is bleeding from her neck so the werewolf has been chewing her and it has probably been enjoyable to her. The werewolf is hovering over the woman and looking at us and maybe he is defending the woman and telling us to back off. This woman belongs to him and it looks like she is in agreement.

The ones that work for me in the Five of Pentacles, Tarot of Vampyres are:
* willing victim, Drama Queen
* wanting to be seduced (by the werewolf)
* learning to be patient
* rapture
* opposites and splits: black and white, good and evil, death and life, blue and red (the roses in the card), the two tombstones
* union of opposites cannot be achieved by ´tour-de-force´
* transformation, shapeshifting
* courage, strength
* holy number of the Goddess
* nurturing (well..she was chewed.. )
* physical manifestation
* Mother Nature (claws and all..)
* security, practical, concrete
* groundedness, trust
* ill health


ETA: Five of Pentacles is Five of Skulls in Vampyres Tarot. The animal of the whole Suit of Skulls is the Wolf and the color is purple. The Wolf is the union of opposites: spiritual and material in one. Pathfinder, intuitive thinker and practical and well grounded in its environment.

21 Ways - Step Eight, part one


Step EIGHT, part ONE - Dark Carnival Tarot, 5 of Duckets

8-1-1. Metaphors in the 5 of Duckets
Out in the cold (obviously)
The halt and the lame
No rest for the weary
Outside looking in
The missing piece
Human garbage
Run to ground
Stairway to heaven
Hitting a brick wall
Absolute zero
Down and out
Dregs of society
Friends through thick and thin
Without a leg to stand on


8-1-2. Phrases/metaphors for fives and pentacles
I don't think I get the first part. Am I looking for phrases related to the actual number five, or to the meanings of fives in the Tarot deck? I've written a huge long list and erased most of it and I'm not very happy right now.

The actual number five:
Being a fifth wheel
Five and dime store
Five alive


Fives in the Tarot deck:
Spoiling for a fight
Cruising for a bruising
Upset the apple cart
Sturm und Drang
Rage against the machine
Fighting a losing battle


Pentacles:
Being grounded
Living in a material world
Success at any price

Oh the hell with it....

Things that work for the card in my deck:
Fighting a losing battle

Things that don't work:
Everything else

Get me the heck out of this step.

21 Ways: Step Eight


Illuminated Tarot

8.1.1:
So close, yet so far
Step by step
One step at a time
Limping along
Almost home
Down but not out
Just out of reach
Someone to lean on

8.1.2
Healing crisis
Hitting rock bottom
Nowhere to go but up
All shook up
Just desserts
Shaken to the foundation

8.1.3
Out in the cold
Walking wounded
No rest for the weary
Light from above
Window of opportunity
Support in adversity
Within a stone's throw
For better or worse...

Five of Pentacles in the Golden Tarot.

8.1
I will use italian phrases, because I am italian and I do not know many english proverbs and famous phrases.. I do not think that's a problem? I will provide a translation in english

- Mal comune mezzo gaudio (Common bad, half joy)
- L'ultimo sarà il primo. (The last will be the first)
- Dio vi benedica. (God bless you)
- Povero di soldi, ricco di Spirito. (Poor in money, rich in spirit)
- Chiedi e ti sarà dato. (Ask and you will be given)
- Only God hears the poors
- Only the poors are generous.
I do not know if that's ok, but this came to mind as well:
- Poverty is like a punishment for a crime never committed.

8.2
Find some sentences that relate specifically to the 5 and the pentacles.
- Marriage crisis
- Bankruptcy
- Financial crisis
- Being Overthrown
- Hitting the rock bottom

8.3
Cut out the sentences that don't work for you.
I will copy only the ones that work for me:

- L'ultimo sarà il primo. (The last will be the first)
- Povero di soldi, ricco di Spirito. (Poor in money, rich in spirit)
- Only God hears the poors
- Poverty is like a punishment for a crime never committed.
- Marriage crisis
- Bankruptcy
- Financial crisis
- Being Overthrown
- Hitting the rock bottom

-a change in the weather

Phrases and metaphors that work for this image and relate to keywords from the pentacles:

Thumbs down Step EIGHT part1, Shadowscapes tarot


Image of the Shadowscapes's five of pentacles can be found here

First of all, I'd really sucked at this step.
I wasn't able to find good sentences in english so I use the few ones that come into my mind in my lenguage and try to make a translation.
Some of them are bad translated and some others have lose part of their meaning along the way. Please, bear with me.
Anyway, here I go....

Part 1.

-Mejor solo que mal acompañado.
Better alone than in bad company.

-Si lloras porque no sale el sol las lágrimas no te dejarán ver las estrellas.
If you cry because you can’t see the sun the tears won’t let you see the stars.

-callejón sin salida.
Dead end

-pobreza de espíritu.
Spiritual poverty.

-en el ojo de la tormenta
The calm after the storm
(also a song by The Common Linnets ).

-de mal en peor
From bad to worse.

-inseguridad paralizante.
Crippling insecurity.

-lamerse las heridas
Licking the wounds. (Ok, it doesn’t make sense in English).

Part 2.
Five: crisis, upset, adversity, adaptation, disturbance, storm and stress, regretful.
Pentacles: final result, money, security, health, results, grounding, skills, fruits of labor, tradition.

All together:

-Adaptarse a la economía actual.
Adapt to the current economy.

-No estar de acuerdo con el resultado final
Don’t agree with the final result.

-Enfermarse del estrés.
-Get sick from stress.

Part 3.
I’m gonna take:

- Don’t agree with the final result.
-Better alone than in bad company.
-If you cry because you can’t see the sun the tears won’t let you see the stars.
-Dead end
-Spiritual poverty.
-The calm after the storm


And that's all. Now that I have to start the second part I'm having shivers.

- identity crisis
- losing everything
- going bankrupt
- empty pockets
- complete overhaul

* hitting rock bottom
* just scraping by
* beggars can't be choosers
* struggling to make ends meet

21 ways - Step 8


8.1
I have found a treasure trove of metaphores for this difficult card (being the Thoth Minors mostly pips) in Crowley Book of Thoth, which is one of my "bibles", and the obvious "first place to look in" for the Thoth deck.

I understand the card called Worry represents

The arrive of stress and storm on the phisical plane *
The telluric tension of the tettonic plaques when they hit one against the other and mountains are born *
Instability at the foundation of matter
Motion upsets matter
Motion and matter upset a statically stable system. *

These images depend from the way the deck is built: reversed engineering the cards, as Zephiro often proves, is a great way to understand the cards and internalize their meanings, make them something truly personal and very often used.

The metaphores/phrases above describe the action of Geburah (the 5th sephirah on the Tree of Life) on the material plane (2nd He' of the Tetragrammaton, Disks).

8.2

As for its Decan, the Five of Disks is Mercury in Taurus. That makes it easy to understand how the card title is Worry..

Metaphores related to this are:
Opposed energies ¿
Intelligence applied to labour *

More metaphores I have found related to fives and disks:

Inertia and insensitiveness as charateristics of peace ¿
Disturbance is sacred as all other phenomena *
Stranglement, as a dog would with a sheep ¿
End of social balance *
Breaking down of an economic system *
THE BREXIT!!! ***
The 5 Tattvas striving to hold together an organism that would otherwise disrupt completely
Earthquake - the slow movement of magma after the eruption and its melting all matter together for new life *
Disruption of elements/matter *

8.3
I have put a * for the statements that I resonate with
I have put a ¿ for the statement i strongly disagree with
Unmarked statements are neutral

Great step, I deeply enjoyed, and found it very useful.
I tend to go by the books and need to develop more of my intuitive skills. The metaphores allow to get creative using the traditional meanings as "building blocks".
