Judgement Symbol "Awen" Inspiration


I've often wondered why Pamela Colman Smith would have added the "noise" lines at the Bell end of the Angel's trumpet on her Judgement card, but considering her deep roots in Irish and Celtic tradition, perhaps she chose this way to subtly add the AWEN symbol to her illustration.

According to Wikipedia:

Awen derives from the Indo-European root *-uel, meaning 'to blow',
and has the same root as the Welsh word awel meaning 'breeze'.

There is a parallel word to 'awen' in Irish, ai, also meaning "poetic inspiration"
which derives from the same ancient root.

Awen is a Welsh word for "(poetic) inspiration".
It is historically used to describe the divine inspiration of bards in the Welsh poetic tradition.
Someone who is inspired, as a poet or a soothsayer, is an awenydd.

20 - Judgement --- soothsayer --- fits nicely with the 2 - High Priestess.

Viewing XX Judgement not as letter 21 Shin, but letter 20 Resh can offer further insights too.

Note: Hebrew reads RIGHT to LEFT


A very interesting possibility? Yes.

Sound


Its been pointed out to me that the sound Gabriel is BLOWING from his trumpet is seven fold ( seven lines descending from the trumpet) these are sounds that relate to the 7 energy centre's of the body. To hear Gabriel's trumpet sound, (MESSAGE) , the seven centre's in the body must all be working perfectly and in unison.
