Lust and Individuation

Archetypes of Lust



The Alchemical stage represented here is Exaltation. This is the raising of the vitality and virtue of the Matter to a higher Spiritual level through a transmutation process which involves dissolving it to a higher degree. This, to a certain extent is part of the Sublimation and Circulation process. Mathers directly referred to this card as representing the ‘Green Lion’, which is a solvent that dissolves stronger substances into it. This is shown in this Key by the weaker Green Lion as the woman, apparently controlling the stronger Red Lion beside her. Here superior strength will not work through any method of confrontation, for the Green Lion, wears down that superior strength and gradually absorbs it.

Within this card there is very much the nature of opposite polarity, which could possibly be best explained in alchemical terms. The Lion is in this instance the alchemical Red Lion while the woman is considered the Green Lion. Because the Green Lion is a solvent, she saps the red lion’s vitality by manipulation through desire, depicted by the roses. You have here the King of beasts beside a woman who, at first, appears defenceless. The Lion, in fact, stands for the rampant masculine force but he has been conquered by the woman through her feminine nature.
