Solve et Coagula

In reference to the XVth arcana of the Tarot de Marseille, the Devil (the one who separates), contains in himself and by his motto the whole of the "Great Work" of traditional alchemy. Symbolically linked to Yin Yang, it is the Life-Death cycle that is signified in this Dissolution and Coagulation. The (al)chemical precipitate of life in the ethereal solution of Nothingness, until it returns to the solute. A hand offered, a hand taken back, the Truth and the Secret. The position of precarious equilibrium, where the exercise of the body takes all its control and power, to release the highest degree of potential energy. Kneeling, by its condition, but dominating the perishable worlds.
