Interpretation of the card:
Astrological Sign: Gemini/Sagittarius ︱ Planet: Mercury/Jupiter
The picture depicts a Master and a Disciple in the garden of a church. The master, dressed in Jupiter's colors, stands calmly and observes his student. The young man kneels before him and washes the dinner plates, demonstrating his self-sacrificing devotion to his guru's teachings. Serving in churches and monasteries has been a symbol of respect across different cultures for centuries, and apprentices often have to spend years performing simple tasks before they are allowed to study.
The meaning of the Master and Disciple Symbolon card
1) As a single or first card︱ The problem
WHAT IS THE SUBJECT?
You need to find your place in the current phase of your life, whether as a student or a teacher. You have to embrace the knowledge you have acquired so far and commit to using it to grow and develop. By taking a firm stance and dedicating yourself to either role, you will be able to break free from the feeling of being trapped between "not yet" and "not anymore." Find your purpose and use your mental energies to fulfill it.
2) As the next card︱Way through the problem
HOW TO DEAL WITH IT?
You must follow two paths at the same time. The path on the left is still for the student, while the path on the right is already for the teacher. Both are equally and simultaneously a part of your current development. As long as you do not deviate from one path in favor of another, your energies will continue to be in balance.
3) as the last card︱Result
WHERE DOES IT LEAD?
You have become a spiritual center, able to transfer or receive knowledge as needed and to fit the target group. Your knowledge has acquired therapeutic power and you are dedicated to it. It reaches the depths of your being, creating a river that nourishes its surroundings. Now, you understand that it will be a long journey before the river reaches the sea.
