From The Tarot by Paul Foster Case:
"The shell-fish climbing from the pool represents the early stages of conscious unfoldment. In these first developments of consciousness, the individual seems to be isolated from the rest of nature."
The crawfish is pictured in RW's Moon at the surface of the pool waving its claws - at the Moon.
Crawfish live and eat off the bottom of their 'world'. Is this significant as well? Why the crawfish? I understand the salamander/Wands significance, but the crawfish??? BTW, they are a great to pick on by the bussel . . . New Orleans anyone?
