28. THE MAN OF FIRE: "THE ASSASSIN"

“You never know what's hit you. A gunshot is the perfect way.”
--- John F. Kennedy

“I was a killer, was the best they'd ever seen
I'd steal your heart before you ever heard a thing
I'm an assassin and I had a job to do
Little did I know that girl was an assassin too”--- John Mayer

The Assassin, in disguise as a fire fighter, runs out of a raging inferno, his gun still smoking. Behind him is superimposed a shooter’s target and behind this the Roman Coliseum ablaze is layered with a full moon above.


Interpretation:  All of the men in all of the suits should be considered as having active attributes of the positive and negative of each of the suits. 

The man of earth, “the CONSUMER” always has to have the next big thing.  He is very generous but do not forget to tell him “thank you” as you will not be gifted from him again if you do not acknowledge his generosity. He has no idea how to satisfy his overwhelming hungers.

The man of fire, “the ASSASSIN" is always on his guard.  He is quite often hard to pin down and to trust that he will keep his promises.  Because he is unpredictable he can be terribly exciting to be around.  If you friend him, he’s “always got your back.”

The man of water, “the SOCIOLOGIST never really makes a commitment to what he thinks, feels or believes.  He constantly seeks to be the witness but never the actor in any real-life situation.  He does have ideas but he keeps them all to himself.  He will ask all the questions and rarely, if ever, answers any himself.

The man of air, “the EXPLORER” rarely stays in one place, unless he is conducting some sort of experiment.  He is often seeking and gaining more information.  He will be an excellent judge and strategically approach any problem or issue. 

The Assassin is someone to have on your side as he can be quite a protector.  He knows the exact moment to strike.  He seems to be fearless and have the ability to focus all of his intention on a single action.

He is the personification of finely conserved energy.  He constantly uses the element of surprise.

When you first meet him, he may appear to be travelling incognito.  You will  know him initially by the element of surprise in your first encounter.  If he is out there looking for you, be assured that he will find you, just, whatever you do, do NOT sneak up on him!

The Assassin appears to be ultimately dangerous, he holds the key of sheer will, focused and controlled.  He can be your greatest adversary or most loyal guardian.

27. THE WOMAN OF FIRE: "THE SNAKE CHARMER"

“He said "I'm a king snake"
And you'll be my queen
With a butler and servants
And your own private stream”---Billy Gilman
“Charm is a way of getting the answer yes without asking a clear question”---Albert Camus

The seductive snake charmer is smugly secure that she can enchant even the most reluctant or dangerous of beast.  Her image comes from the Minoan culture:

“...the Minoans worshipped the Great Mother, a female goddess who embodied fertility, fertility of the earth, of the animal world and of humans. In addition to being a fertility goddess, she was a protectress of the people. ...who possessed different natures each depicted in a different way. As a protectress of house and home she was depicted with snakes...” http://traumwerk.stanford.edu:3455/94/148

Behind her is pictured a stone circle, as a full moon rises reflected in duplicate. She holds a two-headed snake in each hand.  She wears a headdress of flames and a caduceus adorns her gown.

INTERPRETATION:

All of the women in all of the suits should be considered as having active attributes of the positive and negative of each of the suits. Remember if this tarot indicates you or a person in your life, it does not have to indicate a female person.

The woman of earth, “the GARDENER” is clearly a maternal figure.  She represents all of the womanly attributes: beauty, nurture and care.  If her energy runs too strong her children can be too clingy or may never leave her home.

The woman of fire, “the SNAKE CHARMER" always turns men’s [and some women’s] heads.  She is a temptress and seems to have the kind of aura that makes her mysteriously popular.  Beware as she represents the worst types of envy and retribution and when handling this type of energy you must be careful how you use it, as flying into a rage or jumping to conclusions before you have all the information may have terrible consequences you never intended.

The woman of water, “the GOVERNESS is a quite ethereal being.  She is always calm, and often placid.  She will pick up a crying infant to soothe it, but forgets to do the checks to see if something is actually hurting the baby.

The woman of air, “the PILOT” takes herself very seriously.  She is likely to have either an important position in her career or is in charge of some rather large responsibilities.  It is very hard for her to understand a joke.  She will often seem remote or cold.  Her professional status can isolate her.

“All charming people have something to conceal, usually their total dependence on the appreciation of others.”~Cyril Connolly

The Snake Charmer understands truly the concept of duality and appears to be able to manifest her every desire. In the below song by KT Tunstall there is a description of such a woman:

She is a very social creature and is often seen holding the rapt attention of a group simply by her presence. You will probably hear of her before you meet her as her reputation usually proceeds her.  She is able to sell herself without ever mentioning her product.  Often you will find an opposing factor; individuals to disdain her or gossip about her as jealousies tend to follow in her wake.  She can be very dismissive of others if she disapproves of the amount of attention you are getting.

She is quite creative and good at organising event as she is excellent at using her charm to enlist the right people to make her event successful.  She is also quite experienced at delegation, and you may find yourself taking on more responsibility on her behalf when you work with her, though she will have the lion’s share of the praise.  This can be one reason why others become critical and jealous of her.

When you first meet her, she will take your hand warmly and hold it longer than you may deem necessary.  She will always look into your eyes when she is speaking to you.  It is likely there will be many of her followers around her.

A funny way to look at the charisma the woman of Fire has is in this short clip:
