Preview of the Phoenix Constellation
For the COSMOS Tarot & Oracle Deck, Camille illustrated a piece for the constellation Phoenix. In the deck, it represents the World Card and is an Earth Element.
Transformation - Reinvention - Legacy
The constellation Phoenix is a minor constellation in the southern sky. The Phoenix has its origins in ancient Egypt, and has since been incorporated into Greek, Roman, and early Christian mythology. The concepts of infinity, cycles of life and death, resurrection, longevity, and renewal are all a part of Phoenix. Additionally, the Phoenix’s life cycle is directly tied to the element of fire, as the Phoenix dies in an outburst of flames, only to be born again from its own ashes.
In a reading, this card may symbolize a personal transformation and reinvention. This may also indicate an opportunity for an individual to set up their legacy by establishing a foundation from which others can also flourish. What a person leaves behind today will be fuel for a new generation of concepts and ideas. This card may also indicate inheritance, investments, or the sale of a business.
Reversed, it could mean that one may be caught in a bad cycle, repeating bad habits, or that elements from one’s past may continue to haunt them. This may indicate poor spending, or recurring deductions from one’s finances with no gain. It may be a good time to look at one’s resources and adjust any leaky assets.
