SUBLIMATIO AND SEPARATIO:
how to use both processes effectively
The Page of Swords from the Tarot of Prague is an example of how to use both alchemical
processes, separation and sublimation. We need to step back and visualize ourselves looking at
the situation challenging us from a tower or a mountain or any place that can give us not only
distance but overall perspective.
Then, after we view, examine and determine our priorities and understand our objectives, We
need to use the sword of rightful discrimination to cut through the chase, get rid of non essentials
and get on with our lives accordingly.
This combination brings about a lesser form of "Coagulatio" that helps manifest a new and,
hopefully, more coherent perspective and approach.
