sale of spiritual goods, business forged from esotericism, buying happiness, sect
Interpretation of the card:
Astrological Sign: Taurus/Sagittarius ︱ Planet: Venus/Jupiter
A group of young people pays to enter the church with valuable items. Only after they have given their possessions are they allowed inside. The master (Sagittarius) greets them at the entrance, claiming to offer wisdom through his religious teachings. However, he appears to be exploiting his beliefs for profit, effectively running a business with his "goods." This would not be an issue if the church's facade bore the truthful inscription "Trading in the fruits of the spirit."
The meaning of the Matter and Spirit Symbolon card
1) As a single or first card︱ The problem
WHAT IS THE SUBJECT?
You are either purchasing valuable insights for yourself or selling them to others. This suggests that your intellectual property is not truly yours, as it has not yet undergone a journey through your soul. It remains a commodity, a means to enhance your ego. The desire to open a store and sell these ideas may cause temporary problems, as you are under the illusion of understanding what you have bought or sold.
2) As the next card︱Way through the problem
HOW TO DEAL WITH IT?
Wise thoughts often involve releasing something precious that you hold onto or are imprisoned by. Your journey necessitates sacrifice, including a financial one. The saying "you can't use one part of a hen to lay eggs for you and the other to make soup out of it" applies; you may have to give up the hen that has produced golden eggs for you.
3) as the last card︱Result
WHERE DOES IT LEAD?
You now understand that your thoughts and mental creations have value only to yourself. No one can purchase them from you, and you cannot sell them to others. They must be crafted by your own hand, so to speak.
