We are reminded that the decision-making often indicated by this card is often a complex process of discerning what really is play and how we have to weigh two sides of the coin or ‘our two minds’ symbolised by zodiac sign Gemini to which card refers.
The famous twins Castor and Pollux from ancient Greek and Roman myth, immortalised as the stars Alpha and Beta Geminorum in the constellation Gemini show the dual character of the Twins and hence the Lovers: they are inseparable as twins and polarised with Pollux being immortal and Castor being mortal. At Castor’s death, Zeus allowed them at Pollux’s request to live together alternating between Olympus, the abode of the immortal gods and Hades, the underworld of the dead. One of their symbols was a pair of snakes.
Our image is inspired by a “snake-witch” rune stone from Gotland in the Viking era.
We also had in mind the story of Hyrrokkin, a giantess called in by the Aesir for her immense physical power needed to put the dead Baldr in his ship out to sea. Hyrrokkin had two snakes for reins while riding on an enormous wolf.
On this cosmic day and full-moon night we gaze into the sky. We chose for our archetypal dragon the Star, the constellation Draco – a huge circumpolar constellation winding across the Northern sky. Circumpolar means, it is never setting.
In the pyramid age some 4-5.000 years ago, its main star, Alpha Draconis or Thuban in the tail of the dragon, was the Pole Star of the Earth and one of the two shafts of the Great Pyramid in Gizeh pointing to the sky was oriented towards it. Present Day Polaris, the Alpha Star in the Little Dipper, is not considered as part of Draco by modern astronomers, yet in antiquity the Little Dipper was seen as the wing of Draco.
The constellation revolves around itself and our whole zodiac seems to hang from Draco as its “King”, in the words of the Kabbalistic Sepher Yetzirah. There are many legends and mythic references to Draco linking it, for example, to Ladon, the hundred eyed dragon, guarding the golden apples of the Hesperides for Hera or, much older still, to TIamat, the great creator-chaos dragon of Mesopotamia.
