Orbs, Cups, Hearts - Spades, Swords, Pikes

This post at the always amazing Celtic Rebel set me to thinking...

All the renaissance in research (real research) shows me is how absolutely right on the money Velikovsky was when he wrote Worlds in Collision (as read by Jeff Goldblum in the 1970s Body Snatchers) and Oedipus and Akhenaten. :)

On the suits of playing cards, by a process of elimination (in every sense) Swords -> Spades, Cups -> Hearts, Wands -> Diamonds and Pentacles -> Clubs. However for the longest time I personally thought Pentacles -> Diamonds and Wands -> Clubs. Pentacles = Coins = wealth = Diamonds, Wands - fascii = Clubs.

The duality of the suits is key in my opinion. Sword and Cup are stiff penis and wet vulva, direct and powerful; Sword cuts (blood) to sever girl into woman via loss of virginity; Wand as benevolent cock-magic to balance "hostile" act of virgin killing- paint brush painting with virgin blood? As for Pentacles- they couldn't have originally meant money because there wasn't any; in a sexual sense they are shields, as in female pubic hair- tangles that protect and conceal- like the web of finance today?
