The Five of Athames: Reversed Meanings
The Salem Tarot Five’s
Fives in The Minor Arcana represent change and the need for change. The energy of Five changes the order of things for either good or bad. Unlike most other cards in tarot where the Upright aspect is deemed to be more positive, the Five changes this pattern by being more positive when Reversed. Five just has to be different, or difficult! When Upright, it can be rigid and narrow as it resists change or struggles with it. When Reversed it becomes all-embracing and accepting. However, because Reversed Cards can be extreme, the conflict of the Upright can become intense. Alas, due to Five’s overriding erratic nature, both the Upright and Reverse aspect can bring great extremes. The orientation of Five dictates the manner in which it deals with or approaches change. The change brought about by Five is often unexpected or chaotic.
The Salem Tarot Suit of Athames
The Suit of Athames is associated with action, change, force, power, oppression, ambition, courage and conflict. Action can be both constructive and/or destructive, sometimes resulting in violence. This suit can also mean hatred, battle, and enemies, and of all the suits, this one is considered to be the most powerful and dangerous. The Suit of Athames deals with the mental level of consciousness that is centred around the mind and the intellect. Athames mirror the quality of mind present in your thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs. Athames themselves are double-edged and in this way the Suit of Athames symbolises the fine balance between intellect and power and how these two elements can be used for good or evil. As such, the Athames must be balanced by spirit (Wands) and feeling (Chalices). The negative aspects of the Suit of Athames (i.e. when the Athames cards appear reversed) include anger, guilt, harsh judgement, a lack of compassion and verbal and mental abuse.
With deep rich colors, subdued by subtle shades of red/orange, the overall look is dark as you would expect from a deck loosely designed to reflect the witch periods of Salem. The Salem Tarot is a deck of magic and destiny. Within its 78 cards lies the souls path from birth to death and beyond. It’s uses pagan and medieval imagery and each card has subtle flashbacks to the times of Salem and the witch trials.

You may want to visit a place or person who is normally far away, through a process called targeting. This can be done by focusing on the image of the location or the persons face, then seeing it at the end of a tunnel. Move forward through the tunnel until you arrive at the desired place or the intended person.
Development for Beginners: The connection between Dr. Erwins dream and the image that was transmitted to him is undeniable, and it gave the Dr. Ullman and the rest of the staff at the Dream Laboratory sound reason to believe in the possibility of psychic dreams.
