The "good" and "bad" of a Deteriorate, Negative, Divestive - EIGHT

 

 MAJORS

 

MINORS

MINORS

Each Major Trump card is equal to two Minor Suit cards.

Coins and Staves show us the
Yang : Tangible : Transient : Crystalline : Particle Nature of Things.
Roses and Swords reveal the
Yin : Intangible : Perpetual : Amorphic : Wave Nature of Things.
Coins and Roses show us the
Yang : Positive : Ameliorate : Investive path of these two sides.
Staves and Swords show us the
Yin : Negative : Deteriorate : Divestive path of these two sides.
Both Ameliorate and Deteriorate paths have
Moderate ("good") and Extreme ("bad") possibilities to consider.

It's a matrix SYSTEM! It has many layers, many levels.

This page describes the Moderate and Extreme of a deteriorate Eight (8). I leave it to you to extract the yin from the yang from each Moderate and Extreme! Then, extract the yin and yang from each Moderate and Extreme of an Ameliorate Eight (8)!
