[Unfinished] Rider Waite Inspired LOO Tarot Trump Cards [Update!]
Wanted to share with LOO community. Not nearly done, will probably take a while. I want to comprehend the meaning of the cards as I draw them.

Then I digitalize them, as I'm trying to get better at digital art. I'm a noob so it's a slow process lol.

Feedback and critiques welcome on the art and symbolism.

RE: [Unfinished] Rider Waite Inspired Tarot Trump Cards
I wrote a looong detailed explanation on the meaning of magician here

https://www.bring4th.org/forums/showthread.php?tid=12707&pid=276229#pid276229

Ankhs are symbols of life force. I think it's kind of off how there's so little consensus among people on its exact meaning

I saw a photo on google images of the eyes of Ra and Horus/ with the Ankh in the center of the face and it immediately made sense to me.

The loop is a sort of energetic portal for you to receive vibratory energy. The third eye between your eyes., picture the loop as your third eye.
a comparison has also been made to a females ovary system. It's a life symbol.
__
the dove/orb [crystal ball/visionary object] and the sun. That is celestial energy. look in to the chaoskampf, in my opinion it is an explanation of the global mythology of the universal dragon symbols and their similar meaning. [earth]underworld serpent and sky [thunder/rain/god]

Quetzalcoatl/tlaloc
chinese water dragons
bibilical sea dragon leviathan
Hindu naga, serpentlike waterworld beings [naga kanya] [naga/garuda legend]
and many more
__
Hierophant is a sort of wise entity whom the entities mentally stuck in lower densities see reality/truth in, and they become seekers

As for emperor, I could look in to it later but to me it just seems like an empowered man. It reminds me of how the first emperors of China [Fu Xi, depicted as a serpent double helix] were said to be dragons [element benders. rain/thunder men with crystal crowns. practitioners of hydromancy like the Greek witch Circe]

let me know if you have any more questions. these are my own interpretations but the Tarot is derived from astrological underpinnings.

"trying to flesh out what these 5 cards mean"
is another way of saying

What do these mean?

I think whoever wrote the I Ching went through something like this.

Ra: "Congratulations on figuring out the mathematical configuration of the time machine, too bad it won't change the attitudes of people around you. You're still stuck with them! *shrugs* LOL. Cya"

Thank you! Those are very good explanations. I should have clarified that I'm trying to draw them to Ra specs. I'm (painfully lol) trying to strip the astrological symbolism. I fixed the title. XP

The ankh explanation was helpful. Your right, it's hard to find solid info on it. I like your interpretation tho, it fits well, especially Ras emphasis on it being an important symbol of life that we should reflect on.

The orbs elude me. Seems like they are everywhere. From Jesus paintings to ancient hindu art. I never thought about the dragons, ha. Ill have to reflect on that Avenue more.

I will give your magician link a read, as I do want to get into comprehending the non Ra tarot as well.

Thank you!

Iv always casually enjoyed drawing, but iv never taken it seriously. I have friends iv grown up with who have and they are pro level now lol. So id say about 20 years.

I wanted to get better, especially at digital, and I also want to do the Ra meditation on the cards, but I couldnt find a good deck. Figured this would be a good muse to work on both. Hope I can actually finish so I can share them for other people to use.

I have to say, it really helps to lay them out in different ways, and reflect on how they correlate. Even with just the 5 I have now.

RE: [Unfinished] Rider Waite Inspired LOO Tarot Trump Cards
Orbs are often stones made of an Earth material like quartz/obsidian/amethyst whatever
also mirrors, known in mesoamerican cultures as tezcatls hence the name of the divination lord Tezcatlipoca

they are used for scrying

peering in to them while meditating to see patterns/energy
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrying

someone told me once that some are made of glass and there's an opening [bubble] in the center of the orb so a person can imagine their mind in a great cosmos absorbing energy.

Geomancy is divination with stones, pyromancy is concentrating on flames either candles or bonfires. Hydromancy in gazing in to water.
All of it in the context of meditation

edit: It's funny you're trying to strip the astrological symbolism.

Because I'm curious about if the Tarot have a 'location' in the density.
If I had all the resources to work with I'd imagine trying to find if they are mentioned in belonging to a certain density because their astrology in my view weaves them in to the 8th density because it contains the Zodiac houses.
https://bring4th.org/biorhythms/index.php#start_graph
the number sets are kind of unfamiliar to me

This calculates biorhythms based off the number sets in the LoO. I am not entirely familiar with these ideas, but this gives a bit of context for what I'm hoping to someday lay the foundation for building.

A 14 level computer hologram decoding the entire universe counting from the first chakra red in the electromagnetic spectrum and moving up to 14 levels that could allow me to pinpoint energetic reverberations throughout time.

It has been done before on a limited level, and pinpointed 2012 as a time where human consciousness would transform. All based on the mathematics in the I Ching which was written thousands of years ago in Neolithic China, which was later decoded in the 1970s which pinpointed decades in advance the passage of Colorado's amendment 64.

I could pinpoint when humans are going to pass densities 10-14

Updated! I hope this is the right way to go about this, instead of creating a whole new post lol.
