Jungian Archetype



Alchemically we are looking at the stage of Digestion. Within this process is also fermentation and corruption. This is where mild heat is applied over a long period of time, to the Matter, which gives up its vital essences. This process is also called Maceration. It is where the gross elements become much lighter as the essence is removed and to a certain extent Separation occurs. The Death card shows the corruption of the matter as a death process, which is essential before the life forces of the Matter are released as a state of birth. Transmutation then occurs.
