Modalities

the cardinal signs send into orbit
~ the fixed signs encircle to the roots of the earth. the mutable signs weave through the thread tapestry of life

we have exploration with cardinal, launching through galaxies and uncharted territory. then the enveloping intimacy of fixed signs, becoming aware of every fibre and global fabric. mutable is the experience of all things through the translucent, vaporized float. mutable is the closest to the divine, because god is ever present and takes on many disguises and forms. 

“I’d rather sing one wild song and burst my heart with it, than live a thousand years watching my digestion and being afraid of the wet.”  
 ―    Jack London Cardinal Signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn

“If you want to identify me, ask me not where I live, or what I like to eat, or how I comb my hair, but ask me what I am living for, in detail, ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully for the thing I want to live for.”  
 ―    Thomas Merton Fixed Signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius

“You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”  
 ―    Bruce Lee Mutable Signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces

Poetry for the Signs


Aries

You are the first house.

I am the last. You love. I

only knew to drown.

Taurus

You are strength, you are

free. I am gossamer, I

am trapped. You broke me.

Gemini

You are two sides of

the coin. You rest silently

on blue fountain floors.

Cancer

You make homes out of

mountains, oceans, everywhere.

And I am homesick.

Leo

You are the sun, if

the sun doesn’t know how to

hide at night. Goodbye.

Virgo

You are sandstorms and

black holes, dust on silver spoons.

I am Summer breeze.

Libra

You are the ocean.

If oceans were always calm.

I am a maelstrom.

Scorpio

You are hard shell, self

destruction. You are sunsets.

And I am mortal.

Sagittarius

You are uncharted

territory. You are lost.

And I am homebound.

Capricorn

You are big cities.

I am a village shoved care

lessly by a hill.

Aquarius

You are cloudy skies.

I am the girl watching fish 

swim in your belly.

Pisces

You are the prison

er and the prison guard at

the same time, darling.

Tales of Titans

If you’re familiar with Uncharted Realms lore, you know the story of how three planeswalkers (Sorin, Nahiri, and Ugin) spent years and years preparing Zendikar to be the prison of the interplanar monstrosities known as the Eldrazi. The three planeswalkers resided on Zendikar for 40 years, with Nahiri spreading word to the residents of the plane.

“ It took forty years of near-constant work…Nahiri spread word throughout the plane of what was coming, to the merfolk, the kor, the humans, the elves. The amphibian surrakar whispered to each other in the bubbling depths of the coming of monstrous gods, and the angels of Zendikar patrolled the skies between the hedrons with watchful eyes.”-Uncharted Realms: the Lithomancer

Nahiri, the Kor Lithomancer stayed on her home plane to keep vigil. After centuries, she stumbled upon stone carvings that depicted her as the “Prophet and Voice of Talib”, Talib being the Kor name for Kozilek.

Engraved behind and around the relief was another figure.

“Kozilek?” she said. “What—”

But it wasn’t the Eldrazi titan—at least not exactly. In its overall outline, the figure could have been Kozilek, but the features were those of a male kor wearing a strange geometric crown that mimicked the bizarre obsidian plates that hovered over the titan’s alien form. The kor’s arms were spread wide, above the stone Nahiri’s, and each hand gripped the hilt of a sword whose broad blade extended back along his forearm to the elbow, suggesting the Eldrazi’s bifurcated limbs. Above the male figure’s head, an arcing banner proclaimed the subject of the artwork: “Nahiri the Prophet, Voice of Talib.”-Uncharted Realms: Stirring from Slumber

While warning the denizens of Zendikar about the coming of the Titans, she became a herald, a prophet of sorts, for Kozilek. In Zendikar legend, Kozilek was seen as a god of the earth in the times between their arrival in “The Lithomancer” and their release in Rise of the Eldrazi. Nahiri’s magic is directly tied to stone and the earth. This may be more than coincidence.

This brings us to Sorin and Ulamog. Zendikari vampires have mysterious hooklike structures that the Eldrazi, namely the Ulamog brood with their tentacles, use to control them. 

But curiously, vampires weren’t native to Zendikar until sometime after Sorin arrived on the plane.

“The figures seemed human, but she didn’t recognize their clothing from any culture she knew. Flimsy gauze barely covered their chests, revealing the stark red paint adorning their ashen skin. Sharp hooks protruded from their shoulders and upper arms and, as they snarled at her approach, she saw slightly protruding fangs. Vampires? she thought. There are no vampires on Zendikar.”-Uncharted Realms: Stirring from Slumber.

More curious still as the fact that Sorin is referred to as “The Mortifier” throughout the novel “In the Teeth of Akoum” by Zendikari vampires who claim that Sorin sold them into slavery to Ulamog, even though the Eldrazi were imprisoned before vampires came into existence on Zendikar. This implies that Sorin created vampirism on Zendikar while Nahiri and Ugin were preparing the plane for Eldrazi Arrival, or that there was a breakout between “The Lithomancer” and Rise of the Eldrazi. What is known is that there is a connection between Zendikar’s vampires and Sorin, and a connection between Ulamog and Zendikar’s vampires. By association, Sorin is connected with Ulamog.

And what of Ugin and Emrakul?

We don’t have much text of Ugin’s interactions with the Eldrazi, only that he’s spent much time studying them. Mark Rosewater confirmed that Emrakul’s very presence warps reality, and this is supported by cards like Gravitational Shift.

Ugin also warps reality with his metaphysical magic, as shown in the Manifest mechanic of Fate Reforged, turning matter and energy into one another and one in the same.

Both Ugin and Emrakul are massive and flying beings that cause reality itself to spasm and bend to their will. It is not far-fetched to draw comparisons between the two, nor is it far-fetched for the citizens of Zendikar to see Ugin as a herald of Emrakul as Nahiri and Sorin are to Kozilek and Ulamog.
