Art and Individuation



The Alchemical association to this card is Elevation. This is the process where the spiritual or ethereal essence is removed from the corporeal or gross, the volatile from the fixed (such as vapour), through the process of Fire or heat. The first version of this Key seems to relate more diredly here with the figure over the heated cauldron. The second version here is more subtle and as Mathers notes ‘more restricted in meaning. However the water jugs being poured, with the volcanic fire in the background, make it plain that the Elevation process is not a dry one, or humid (as in the first version of this key), but is more liquid in orientation and is more closely allied with (though not identical to) higher distillations
