The artist sees this as the coming together from eight points. As I spent time examining the image I saw many yods, the energy of radiant heat, baby snakes going out for a lungful of fresh air. Just an indication my mind is currently outside rather than inside the hearth/home.
I'm reminded by this card how important a home to come back to is when the mind or body or spirit is occupied elsewhere. It colors the whole experience without our even realizing it.
"Inside yourself or outside, you never have to change what you see, only the way you see it." ~ Thaddeus Golas 1924-1997
Tarot opened previously closed doors to my own heart with it's merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
