In this card, the creative angel blending of  two things which is totally opposite (fire and mercury) to create a new surprise (mithril or elixir), but the mixng have to be accurate and careful in amount and process. It is just like the alchemy. Hence it tells us that we can and should put thesis and anti-thesis together to get the even more useful synthesis. But it will take time, care, patience and experimentation and also moderation. This card is actually  rule by Sagittarius, but when i drew it, i felt Aquarius is more appropriate. Normally it was drawn with angel pouring something from a chalice to another, but i drew it with a Jinni that represent Ganymede of the Aquarius whose job is pouring water and wine for gods in Olympic. Since it is about mixing and blending, i drew it with all kind of culture around the world; Arabian Jinni, Greek Ganymed, Egyptian dressing and make up,  Chinese style fire and calabash, European chalice, Roman tripod, Israelitic Solomon's seal for background and Indian lotus pattern for floor.
