On The Road To Mt. Sharp

In the video below from SpaceRip, you can see NASA’s Curiosity on its trek across Mars. It’s pretty amazing stuff.

I bring it up here, not because there’s any Tarot in the video, but because there’s a little Mars in Tarot.

In the Golden Dawn system of Tarot, Mars is the planet associated with the Emperor, and in the RWS version of the card, the Emperor is shown sitting on a stone throne in front of some craggy red mountains.

Doesn’t the terrain around him look a lot like the one Curiosity is crossing right now?

I think we’ve finally identified where the Emperor sat for this portrait. He was somewhere on the road to Mt. Sharp.
