July 2004 Tarot Passage of the Month

From In Pursuit of the Green Lion by Judith Merkle Riley, pp. 224-225

There are only four essences on earth, four things that never change: earth, air, fire, and water. Everything else is made of them, but mixed in characteristically different proportions, you understand...[T]here's a fifth essence--another element...Haven't you ever wondered what the stars are made of? The heavens are made of special stuff--celestial stuff that is entirely different than anyything on earth...The stuff of the heavens--there's a little tiny bit of it present in every earthly thing...the quintessence, we call it--in a thing that allows it to transform.
