A man stands pointing at the ground with his right hand, and raising a crystal ball in his left. On the rocks to one side of him are a cup, a disc with a flower on it, a sword, and a wand or staff that is lying upon the ground. There is a large astragalus plant growing in front of him.
The cup represents water (life force and emotions), the disc represents earth (physical), the sword represents air (thoughts), and the wand or staff represents fire (action). The astragalus plant is representing the assimilation of new ideas, and a boosting of energy.
