Complete Book of Tarot: Waite (1911): A tall man looks from a battlemented roof over sea and shore; he holds a globe in his right hand, while a staff in his left rests on the battlement; another is fixed in a ring. The Rose and Cross and Lily should be noticed on the left side. Divinatory Meanings: Between the alternative readings there is no marriage possible; on the one hand, riches, fortune, magnificence; on the other, physical suffering, disease, chagrin, sadness, mortification. The design gives one suggestion; here is a lord overlooking his dominion and alternately contemplating a globe; it looks like the malady, the mortification, the sadness of Alexander amidst the grandeur of this worlds wealth; (R) surprise, wonder, enchantment, emotion, trouble, fear.
Complete Book of Tarot: Card 5, the possible or ideal outcome, was the Five of Wands depicting a group of young men engaged in rivalry and competition.
Angel Encyclopedia: In One Magic Christmas (1985) angel Gideon (Harry Dean Stanton dressed as a cowboy who plays the harmonica up in a tree), stops time, saves lives, takes a little girl to the North Pole to see Santa Claus, and reverses history to rekindle the spirit of Christmas in an embittered midwestern housewife, played by Mary Steenburgen.
