New Orleans Voodoo Tarot - Rada--La Place [Knight of Swords]


The La Place holds a machete in his right hand as he stands at the crossroads. The background is a lavender/light purple and he uses the machete to create a yellow funnel of air. The La Place seems to hold the machete at the blade, not the hilt (recklessness?). The funnel is the focus of the card due to its size and intense color. Sometimes it seems to take up a lot of space in the card, and sometimes it doesn’t. The La Place is bending and seems to be concentrating on creating this funnel; he is looking down at the machete, where the funnel begins. His pants are white tinged with brown.

This is a mental card, and I interpret is as thoughts overruling everything, especially intuition and emotion. This is in an uncontrolled way, which separates the La Place from the Houngan.
