To those of magic, lust is not obsession with the opposite sex. It is obsession with being. It is the lustre of Will-to-be that exploded this universe of Self into manifestation. It is the indivisible creative strength of I Am that radiates through us, outward, as a sun of creative passion that restores life in the most mundane indolence.

Key 11: The Principle of Strength, Passion, and Lustre.
We see in this card the universal myth known as "beauty and the beast". This key represents the beauty (Tiphareth on the Qabalistic Tree of Life) that is represented in all of us as combinations of talent, gifts, and creative resources which can quell our bestial natures. When our heart, mind and spirit are in a balanced combination of movement and repose--we manifest divine beauty. The multi-headed lion represents the beasts within which Beauty has tamed to do her creative biding. She expands and liberates the living from their past bonds of survival thinking onward to greater achievements of courageous creation. Lust comes from the root word Lustre which is radiance. We can not shine if we are not in our strength. Fear of our "beasts within" steadily weakens us until we cannot radiate our purpose on this earth. Beauty created us to radiate ourselves into the movement of life! We all have much more purpose than we can see! Strength and Lustre are inseparable partners in creation. This can easily be seen as a soft and spongy mushroom pushes through hard concrete as if it was mere soggy paper. In all of us is this quiet manifestation of strength. When thrown, this card represents the querents' passion, awareness, and aliveness A symbol that you have a strong faith in your abilities. You have no qualms about relying on the spiritual powers within in order to handle the situation at hand. In other words you radiate your inner beauty. As always, this blog is too short to completely define each Key. For further information and/or an appointment call Eli @ 253-241-0129 or email <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
