Margarete Petersen : Eight of Flames



  • The fire of the spirit. Concentration and inspiration. You are everything at once: the power of the resting cat of prey, the drawn bow, the bowstrings and the arrow.

    Gather and concentrate your mental powers to calm, draw them to utmost tension, like the strings of a bow. The spirit will become one with the goal, and the inspiration knows when the arrow flies and hits.

I see a spirit or mirage of a leopard, with his back to us, turning back to meet eyes with a hunter below. The hunter has his bow drawn, taut, ready to shoot. He eyes the ghostly cat, with clear, calm intent. The colors of flame and sunset. A central image encased in pressed gold leaf, spotted with blood-colored paint.
