What is alchemy? It’s such a foreign term to me although I did read the book The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.
According to Merriam Webster, alchemy is
: a medieval chemical science and speculative philosophy aiming to achieve the transmutation of the base metals into gold, the discovery of a universal cure for disease, and the discovery of a means of indefinitely prolonging life
: a power or process that changes or transforms something in a mysterious or impressive way
I read in the LWB that comes with the deck, as written by James Wasserman that the red lion has become whit and the white eagle has become red. Wow. Isn’t that cool? Also, the lovers in Card VI are now fused into a person/figure in the card. 2 becomes one. Isn’t that cool too?
I did feel that I performed some sort of alchemy at work today. Turning something into something else with skill and mastery. 🙂
