CLASS XII: AIR III

INTROSPECTION | ALCHEMICAL SEPARATION | INSIGHT

Air III brings us to the end of the heroes journey as we complete our sacred geometric motif within the pentagram trajectory.

Air III is inspired by the 3 of Swords Tarot Card which portrays a state of necessary introspection, separation and insight. Many view this card as one of the most difficult to face within the minor arcana for the weight it can bare on both our thoughts and our heart. Astrologically, the 3 of Swords features Saturn exalted in Libra which gives a powerful key to the medicine this card conveys. We will be working with the 3 of swords from an alchemical perspective of necessary separation within in order to embrace a greater state of clarity, and meditate on the power of analysis, intention and endings.

We have officially completed our Heroine’s Journey through the Pentacle Path of the Star!
