Hawkwind Galactic Tarot

This comes from issue 117 of the UK underground newpaper "IT", in (I think) November 1971.  I also
think I can detect the hand of Bob Calvert at work - "semantic co-ordination", indeed...

The Galactic Tarot does not speak of the future or the past, for all galactic time is contained in the present.
A message:

"Great feelings of true love,
earthlings. Welcome to this long
playing event / happening /
participation. A coming together of
the people. The pop Apocalypse is
coming. Hours of processing /
collecting / performing information
in an underground ecstasy message.
The message is the mystery. The
mystery is the rock form divine.  
The medium is dance, music, film,
lights, jelly babies, mime, poetry,
3D events, playing together,
reacting to situations together,
worshipping the God Rock of your
choice together.
emotion, the sacrament is a Marshall laser beam deep inside your belly, the rite is the Yoruba audio comic.

Flying Saucer
Long-pink cadillac with two T-birds along on its side. Prepare in advance for a long journey.  Radiate
pranic energy. Re-awakwn the Forces of Light. The time is at hand. We the future want none of your
borders and manufactured hatreds. The future is out of your hands and in our minds.

Space
All is possible. A time of trial. We shall overcome.  The cosmic renaissance is beyond the powers of grey
world authority. Hold your breath. Great changes are coming. Dark and light are building to a climax.

The Alien
New friends.  Pleasure is the first and easiest.  Pain is next, Hate is third, Illusion the fourth, Truth the fifth,
Love is sixth and Peace must be learnt at the end.

The Time Card
The road that leads to many houses and the truth that leads into the desert, the street that grows red
flowers, the ascent into high places and the descent into dark depths, the path of ever wandering and the
way of sitting still.  Our time awaits us.

The Silver Machine
Sombre, mysterious, lofty ancient pile.  Enigma of remotest history.  Who set thee here beside the Nile,
Eternal watch to keep?

The Sun
The law of unity gives minerals a geometric shape, the world's a fixed form, groups world in motion and in
dense matter a group of single molecules around a center of affinity also forms the system's blood and
bones, of man and animals according to the same model as plants and trees.

The Winged Hero
Tertiary invaders.  He penetrated in the mysteries of every sanctuary; nothing was hidden from him.  He
covered with a veil everything he had seen.

The Galaxy.
All dressed up and nowhere to go.

Horus
Out of the East-light.  The hawk that hovers on the winds of time.  Initiation beings at night, terminates
with the arrival of dawn.

Icarus
You must learn to tap solar and magnetic energies, you must discover the natural cosmic laws and internal
contact with life.  You will then become agents for the powers that swing the stars through their courses.

The Aquarian Age
Welcome to the future.  The Golden Age No. 11.  The man who bears the pitcher will walk forth across an
arc of heaven; the sign and signet of the Son of Man will stand forth in the eastern sky.  The wise will lift
their heads and know redemption of the earth is near.

wings may meet.

baby till my face turns cherry red.

12f Pluto
You must enter the sphere.  This sphere can be approached only by going beyond electro-dynamics, occult
affinities and the master of manifested worlds.

The universal matrix or great depth.  The source of all that exists, contains within itself the origin of every
thought and action.

Infinity
All good things must come to an end.  Like makes like conscious.

Divinatory meanings of Hawkwind Galactic Tarot Card Readings by
ONYX of XERON:

Earth
A million year narration. Prepare for upheaval. Lord Chaos is coming.
And Warlord Disorder.  Followed by disaster unless something is
down NOW to prevent it.  Scent of magnolia, sweet and fresh,
dashed from our nostrils by the smell of burning flesh.

Pyramid
A breakthrough in the grey room.  You should go back into the poet
to look for the hidden wisdoms you have lost.  The key to the future
is hidden under an ancient stone.  The starship is the experience box.

Atlantis Rising
As it was in the beginning, so shall it be at the end.  Go beyond the
words, the music, expose your soul, feel the electric wail, vibrate to
the owl hoot.  England rocks.  The message is clear - frenzy,
