I. The Magician by FugueState I. The Magician by FugueState
- Part of the V for Vendetta Tarot project -

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Magician is the male power of creation, creation by willpower and desire. He is in control. He knows how things work, he can analyse them in detail. This is a forceful, dynamic Tarot card, yet one that operates through the power of Will rather than brute force. If knowledge is power then the Magician represents the application of knowledge. The Magician creates his desired reality.

Reversed: In its reversed position the Magician can represent the destructive use of wisdom for personal gain. It can signify the attainment of goals through manipulative or controlling means or it can depict the lack of awareness of one's true inner potential. General qualities associated to the Magician reversed are fear, shyness, or the inability to act.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------



[Disclaimers: This project is intended as an homage to "V for Vendetta". No disrespect of it or the Tarot is intended. (I'm not saying I got them all "right", but I gave it my best shot! ^^;) I claim no ownership of V for Vendetta or the characters thereof.]

Ah - I started with number 0, The Fool, and worked my way through from there, hence the brief remarks with a few of your efforts, and the final one what must have seemed 'first'!

You are welcome for all the praise you'll get for this, from me and others, because you really did an amazing job on it, and showed good insight into the meaning of the cards too. No mean feat! ;)

Again, thank you so very much. :hug: This project really meant a lot to me, and I'm extremely glad and relieved that I was able to do it justice!

(sorry for the delay - hundreds of messages to get through! :doh:)

Don't worry about the delay: I was computer-less for the last few days anyway, what with mine needing e new hard drive and a fresh install. I'm just pleased for you that you had so many messages to get through! And the DD, of course ;)

As I said: the praise is well-deserved, you did a very good job! And guess what? Friends of mine in the States sent me the dvd of V for vendetta! Yay! now I can watch it properly! They even sent me the dvd with bonuses on as well, so I'll be really enjoying myself with that one.

Oh, very cool! The special features are pretty fun. If I recall correctly, there's an "Easter Egg" feature with Natalie Portman doing a really hilarious (and filthy!) rap song from Saturday Night Live. On disc 2, if you click the Norsefire "cross-and-wings" logo, it should be there. :lol:
