Aphids = 78941 = 6, #6 in the Tarot, “The Lovers*”. Providers of nourishment to the Ant colony. The Used.

Ants = 1521 = 9, #9 in the Tarot, “The Hermit*”. The Archons. The Users.

Anxious = 1469631 = 6, #6 in The Tarot, “The Lovers*”. See Aphids.

Black = 23132 = 2, #2 in the Tarot, “The High Priestess*”. Unregenerate. To do as you’re told by others who know not. “They” play The Game, and you’re the pawn.

Dey = 457 = 7, #7 in the Tarot, “The Chariot*”. Answer to a Question, or a statement of fact. Doesn’t have a clu! (Pun intended).

IT = 92 = 2, #2 in the Tarot, “The High Priestess*”. Isis looked, however, Thoth had to make IT (Phallus) out of Gold, for she could not find Osiris’s. Raise yourself from lead to gold. See story on Isis, Osiris and Horus.

Play = 7317 = 9, #9 in The Tarot, “The Hermit*”. If you play The Game, eventually you will lose. If you don’t know about the game, then you are probably someone's pawn.

2 = The High Priestess, The Camel. The Veil, Mystery, to travel through the desert, keep your hands out of your pants. Keep your ears open and your mouth shut.

6 = The Lovers, Inside and outside, yet ONE. A way to travel through eternity. Choose Life, become two, realize you are ONE. Through out history there is always ONE.

7=The Chariot, To stand on the Fence. To guide previously unruly opposite sides in the same direction. Light in Darkness. Run away from, run towards.

9 = The Hermit, Old and Wise, 3 legs, a hand, Yod as the secret fire. The fluidic Essence of Light. Yod as Spermatozoon as Hand as Logos as Virgin.
