Hey Macav! What a great analysis of indolence and how it relates to this card. It makes sense of the sleeping lady I see.

I just love Crowley, he is so hilarious -- the German measles of mysticism!!!!! what a hoot!

Kundry and Klingsor characters in Parsifal. (Kundry is the mezzo role in the opera, I think she is mostly a creation of Wagner from a bunch of earlier sources: see Kundry: the High Messenger of the Grail )

Klingsor's palace has a magical garden of maidens that traps knights, and Kundry is one of those maidens -- she is a bit like the sorceress Circe who prevents Odysseus from continuing on his path with her love and enchantements.
