Beneath the Surface


Beneath the Surface

Beckons you to gaze upon your reflection. Do you see yourself, Explorer, or perhaps a vision of what you long for? Here, the Mer appears, staring back alluringly, obscuring his fangs while captivating you with his beauty. Scrying into the water’s surface has been practiced over the ages, whether through magickal practice or curiosity. There is an attraction to the water’s surface that pulls you in. What stares back at you may not be as it seems. It tempts, it mesmerizes, it holds you captive (as is the story of Narcissus). Will you be able to pull away or did your reflection just make you vulnerable prey.

Keywords: Deception, narcissism, reflection, illusions, danger hidden, obfuscation, introspection.
