The "good" and "bad" of an Ameliorate, Positive, Investive - FOUR

 

 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.
Cups and Swords reveal the
Yin : Intangible : Perpetual : Amorphic : Wave Nature of Things.
Coins and Cups 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 an ameliorate Four (4). 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 a Deteriorate Four (4)!
