Magical Image of the 2 of Wands
Black Man, red eyes, White garment
A single black man, very strong, angry, with red eyes, ascends. He wears a white garment. He ascends into the vision.
Black is the colour of the nigredo, the nature of the man. White is it’s contrast in the clothing, the alchemical whitening process. Red is the rubedo.
Therefore it is said, that in the first face of Aries, ascends the image of a black man, standing and clothed in a white garment, girdled about, of a great body, with reddish eyes, and great strength, and like one that is angry; and this image signifies and causes boldness, fortitude, loftiness and shamelessness.
Boldness is the willingness to take risks, act innovatively.
Fortitude is courage in face of pain or adversity.
Loftiness means high or spiritually exalted.
Shameless means brazen.
The vision of a black man with red eyes is fairly common. Aries is well-known as a sign that signifies starting things but not necessarily completion, and it would seem that this man is capable of communicating new projects and completing them.
A powerful projection from the unconsciousness.
