Lightbulb Ashta

Furthermore, the '8' of Wands in Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot deck features prominently an eight-pointed star with arrows at the ends. Crowley described the card as representing "energy" scattering at "high velocity" that had managed to create the depicted eight-pointed figure..The Symbol of Chaos from Michael Moorcock's Eternal Champion comprises eight arrows in a radial pattern. In contrast, the symbol of Law is a single upright arrow. It is also called the Arms of Chaos, the Arrows of Chaos, the Chaos Star, the Chaos Cross, or the Symbol of Eight..

Ashta Lakshmi, also spelled as Ashtalakshmi (Sanskrit: अष्टलक्ष्मी, Aṣṭalakṣmī, lit. "8 Lakshmis"), are a group of 8 Hindu goddesses, secondary manifestations of Shri-Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth, who preside over 8 sources of wealth: "Wealth" in the context of Ashta-Lakshmi means prosperity, good health, knowledge, strength, progeny, and power.. The Ashta Lakshmi are always depicted and worshipped in a group in temples..There are a number of traditional symbols that have the same geometrical pattern, such as any of various eight-pointed stars (like one from a Greek vase 5th century BCE), the star of Ishtar/Venus, the Eastern Dharmacakra and the Wheel of the Year, but none of these were symbols of chaos and their limbs are not arrows..In divination, the suit of wands represents the element of fire and gives information relating to the traits of the fire element in astrology..In The Book of Thoth, the suit of wands is associated with the action of the Will and the element of fire... you were miserable in New York City, and now you're going to be miserable out here in the sticks.. At least someone's life hasn't been upheaved..The intermediate interface chapter on haunting says it all. Get them out yourselves.. It's your house.. Haunted houses aren't easy to come by..I didn't realize you were into the supernatural...
