Watcher Junior 9 1 Spring 2016 Pi, quoted in Wilcox 163 Rhonda Wilcox s article Poetry T S Eliot Comes to. Television Restless explores the parallels between Restless and The Waste Land. What Wilcox fails to explore in depth however is that each section of Eliot s five part. poem corresponds to a tarot card On line 43 Madame Sosotris famous clairvoyant. the tarot reader begins to draw cards Each card corresponds to a part of the poem the. first card describes the first section and so on For example the third card she draws is. the man with three staves or the Three of Wands Line 51 The third section of the. poem is called The Fire Sermon and begins with a description of someone standing above. a barren river just like the man who stands with three wands above a desert gulch on the. Rider Waite Three of Wands The structure of Eliot s poem appears to be directly based. off of an example diagram of a Celtic Cross Spread in Arthur Edward Waite s 1911. companion to the Rider Waite deck titled The Pictorial Key to the Tarot Each section of. Eliot s poem focuses on a different tarot card the same cards depicted in Waite s. diagram and referenced by Madame Sosotris during her reading in the first section One. of the cards Eliot describes the Belladonna the Lady of the Rocks is particularly. ambiguous sparking debate among scholars for the past century as to which exact card. he is referencing line 49 Upon deep analysis of Eliot s writing influences though it is. clear that the Belladonna card is actually an amalgamation of the queen cards It seems. as though the BtVS team applied this same idea of card combination when creating the. cards at the end of Season Four Willow s cards follow the same logic as Eliot s tarot. card descriptions parts of the real tarot symbolism of various cards have been combined. to create a new tarot deck which is in the spirit of traditional decks While the BtVS. creators may not fully understand the traditional practices of tarot it is undeniable that in. developing the tarot deck for Primeval and Restless they like Eliot did for his poem. researched particular elements of tarot card meanings to create important tarot symbolism. within the cards they create for Willow The writers however prioritized plot value over. 3 Tarot readings are a form of divination that has been practiced for centuries. There are a myriad of tarot decks in circulation each with its own art and symbolism. The Rider Waite deck sometimes referred to as the Waite Smith deck is the most. popular and standard set of tarot cards The cards which were designed by Arthur. Edward Waite drawn by Pamela Colman Smith and published by William Rider were. first released in 1910 Waite synthesized his knowledge of the occult and tarot reading. practices to create this first standard universal deck In his 1911 companion titled The. Pictorial Key to the Tarot Waite gives written explanations for each of the cards and. describes several different spreads to read them A spread or a tarot reading is made up. of several cards arranged in a particular layout Meaning is then derived based on the. card and its placement within the spread Seventy eight cards make up the Major and the. Minor Arcanas of a tarot deck The Major Arcana consists of twenty one numbered. Watcher Junior 9 1 Spring 2016 Pi, cards and The Fool which is card zero The other fifty six cards make up the Minor. Arcana and are split up into four different suits corresponding to the elements Wands. fire Cups water Swords air Pentacles Disks Coins earth. 4 The twenty two cards in the Major Arcana are steps in a traditional hero s. journey arc Joseph Campbell first defined the hero s journey in his book The Hero With. A Thousand Faces as a seventeen step journey although Christopher Vogler has updated. this to a twelve step arc for media in his influential book The Writer s Journey that. every major character must go through see fig 1 This mythic arc is universal and can. be applied to almost any work Joseph Campbell himself wrote an essay titled. Symbolism of the Marseilles Deck in which he breaks down the monomyth within the. Major Arcana 1 The first card of the Major Arcana is The Fool or the original na ve state. of the protagonist The second card is The Magician who initially calls the fool to. adventure and from there sends him through the twenty numbered picture cards that. follow which suggest the graded stages of an ideal life lived virtuously according to. the knightly codes of the Middle Ages Campbell 11 Campbell notes that the tenth and. mid point Major card the Wheel of Fortune is a symbol for the great test of young on. entering either marriage or a life career 16 The Tower card a symbol of destruction. of old behaviors as a means for rebirth is the sixteenth Major card and seems to directly. correspond to the eighth ordeal death and rebirth step in the monomyth Vogler 3. Finally the return with the elixir comes with The World card Vogler 2. 5 While this is just a cursory introduction to tarot scholarship these basic. concepts are more than sufficient to assess the first example of tarot in BtVS In the. Season Two episode What s My Line Pt 1 vampire foe Drusilla plays with her tarot. cards which the episode frames as her specialty while her lover Spike attempts to. decipher a cure for her apparent post traumatic stress disorder Drusilla approaches her. cards in the same way she approaches most activities like a child playing a game It. appears as though the cards are just another of her games until she speaks the line Can t. help you not without the key as she points to the bottom center card in her spread. B2009 The spread itself appears to be a variation on the Celtic Cross Spread Instead. of lining four of the cards off to the right of the crossed cards Drusilla lays these cards in. the empty corners of the spread making a rectangle of cards around the central crossed. ones see fig 4 The problem with the authenticity of this spread is that Drusilla sees. actual images depicting the future in her cards Real tarot cards are not so literal but. The Marseilles deck is one of the oldest known tarot decks first seen in 1392 Paris While this. is not the same tarot deck the rest of this paper focuses on given the methods through which. Arthur Edward Waite developed his deck it can be assumed that the Rider Waite deck is a direct. descendant of the Marseilles deck, Watcher Junior 9 1 Spring 2016 Pi. rather are open to interpretation and meant to provide a loose guide instead of explicit. directions, 6 The cards Drusilla draws are accurate depictions of the Rider Waite deck In. the long shot of the spread it is easy to visually identify several Rider Waite cards. including The Nine of Swords bottom left corner and The Emperor top right corner. These cards have not been altered from their original appearance even the correct colors. remain intact Accordingly it is surprising when the camera zooms in on the particular. card Drusilla points to on her line the key and reveals a card that does not exist in the. Rider Waite deck It depicts what appears to be a corpse lying down in front of a stone. columned building a mausoleum in fact as the next part of the episode confirms see. 7 Later in the episode Drusilla returns to her cards and uses them to draw out. the monsters they depict She lays out three cards each representing a new plague. specifically designed for Buffy and the Scoobies see fig 6 The first card here is The. Devil although the card has been significantly altered from the Rider Waite card His. horns and wings have been erased and a simple crown rests on the Devil s head Instead. of holding one palm open and the other around a torch this version of the Devil crosses. his arms The entire image is zoomed in and cropped leaving just the heads of the lovers. in frame see fig 7 The lovers are presumably Buffy and Angel as they are on a date. when Drusilla s first monster which bears a striking facial resemblance to the Devil. Card attacks them see fig 8 The next card Drusilla draws depicts some sort of insect. This arguably relates to the maggot man that worms his way into the Summers. household although this horrifying encounter does not come until What s My Line Pt. 2 2010 Drusilla s third plague card one depicting a leopard emerging from some. foliage does not appear in either parts of What s My Line as Buffy stops the. vampires plot before it can manifest, 8 Drusilla s inaccurate use of tarot mirrors Willow s inaccurate practices as a.
Wiccan As Christie Golden summarizes in her article Where s the Religion in. Willow s Wicca Willow is what Golden calls a Hollywood Witch which is different. from a Real Witch a person who casts spells and may or may not believe in a higher. power A true Wiccan which Golden defines as a follower of a religion that believes. in a god and goddess works with natural energies and incorporates spell casting into. ritual cannot be found within the Buffyverse 160 The Wiccan religion is centered on. the Rede An if it harm none do as you will Lewis 303 Wiccans typically follow a. Book of Shadows which is a rigid guidebook to the Wiccan brand of witchcraft Lady. Sheeba s Book of Shadows is broken down into three sections laws of which there are. 162 rituals spellcasting and Sabbats eight holy days throughout the calendar year to. Watcher Junior 9 1 Spring 2016 Pi, honor the religion s gods and goddesses These sections are specific down to every. slight motion and syllable Wiccan tradition also asserts The Threefold Law which is. essentially the concept of karma This philosophy coupled with the Wiccan Rede might. have given Willow pause long before she became addicted or tried to thwart the natural. order by raising Buffy Golden 164, 9 While all Wiccans are witches not all witches are Wiccan There are many. witches who choose to create their own path and approach to witchcraft incorporating. elements of the Wiccan tradition without being bound to its strict rules Spellcasting and. divination for example are witchcraft practices that are not necessarily Wiccan It. would appear as though Willow is somewhere between a real witch and what Golden. refers to as a Hollywood Witch since she actually has supernatural powers The. problem is in the labeling of Willow as a Wicca Willow s spellcasting is nothing like. the rituals described in The Book of Shadows and as Golden and Winslade point out. inconsistent with Wiccan tradition The ritual associated with spell casting does involve. ingredients even for Real Witches but They re more like the sage rose quartz and. green candle ingredients than the eye of newt and fawn blood that we ve seen on Buffy. Golden 164 Wiccans when spell casting open the circle in the same way each time. a complicated process involving salt water white candles an altar and drawing a circle. from East to East and incorporate several other Wiccan ritual standards into their. spellcasting Sheeba 38 39 None of these standard rituals are ever present in Willow s. 10 By connecting Willow to the Wiccan religion the show should then be. obligated to accurately represent Wiccan culture as it would dignify any other religion. As J Lawton Winslade argues in his article Teen Witches Wiccans and Wanna. Blessed Be s Pop Culture Magic in Buffy the Vampire Slayer with the rise of the. neo pagan goddess oriented spirituality movement the term Wicca gives mainstream. legitimacy to a religion of witchcraft Winslade The BtVS creators attempt to legitimize. Willow s practice by the same logic making Willow s Wicca the real magic vs the. UC Sunnydale s wanna blessed bes from the episode Hush Winslade Beyond. name dropping the Wiccan tradition has no bearing on Willow s craft if one goes by. what we ve seen on the show and in the various official books such as The Watcher s. Guide nobody connected with the show has done a lot of research into what being a. Wiccan means Golden 161, 11 Willow uses tarot cards and other stereotypically occult objects to cast spells. or call upon gods who have no actual bearing on the Wiccan Religion Tarot is a form of. divination which historically has nothing to do with the Wiccan tradition Tarot card. readings began as a novelty and became a practice associated with witchcraft when. Watcher Junior 9 1 Spring 2016 Pi, Christianity first threatened all pagan traditions Willow s Season Four use of tarot cards. comes from the same superficial treatment the BtVS creators used in defining Willow s. powers The way Willow uses tarot cards is grossly incorrect although the cards. themselves suggest the writers to have some knowledge of tarot card symbolism more. on that later Tarot cards are meant to be a personal spiritual guide much like a sacred. text with readings and spreads to help understand personal struggle within the universal. journey In the introduction to her book Tarot of the Spirit Pamela Eakins describes how. she began to perceive the depth of the tarot s subtle and exquisite ability to describe the. human spirit human relationships and in general human psychology xv Tarot is a. divination tool for spiritual reflection not one used in rituals and spell casting. 12 Willow uses tarot cards in the penultimate episode of Season Four in a ritual. that extends into the final episode of the season While the context for which Willow. uses the cards is inconsistent with the goals and practice of tarot the cards themselves. Heaps of Images Tarot Cards in Buffy the glance the representation of tarot cards in Buffy the Vampire Slayer focuses on a different tarot card
