Magical Image of the Third Face of Libra in Picatrix

In the third face of Libra ascends a violent man holding a bow, and before him a naked man, and also another man holding bread in one hand, and a cup of wine in the other; the signification of these is to shew wicked lusts, singings, sports and gluttony.

Picatrix commentary

The interpretation of Picatrix is entirely at odds with the divinatory meanings. Perhaps the repose of the Four of Swords is merely a device to ignore goings on that appear as we enter Scorpio. Crowley suggests such a thing in The Book of Thoth.
