William Blake TarotA woman and a bearded old man commune by a river populated with swans and flamingos. It symbolizes the river of life -- at which male and female, innocence and experience, beauty and wisdom stand side by side in harmony and mutual purpose. The heavenly spotlight indicates these people are eternal forms whose heightened awareness enables them to spiritually merge with their environment and each other. They may be Adam and Eve, returned to the garden in their old age after restoring their own inner harmony. They stand upon the spiritual bank of the river, with nature represented as the opposite bank, whose flamingos of paradise play by the stream. The surrounding willows are associated with the goddess, and her creativity and intuition. The two swans on the near bank confirm that all the creative energies, both natural and spiritual, are in harmony.
