Fortuna Major (“Greater Fortune”) is the lucky Seventh Geomantic Figure. As the Flame of Rain, it connects to Tarot King of Cups and the infamous Death Card. The Zodiac Sign is Scorpio, a Water Sign, ruled by Mars. In Nova Thought, this would make it the Flame of Rain. As a Fixed Sign, it is also connected to the Order Source.
The Rain Principle relates to Thursday, the Number Two, the Runes Uruz, Thurisaz, and Laguz, and the Second or Splenic Chakra, the Svaddhisthana. The Nova Thought character is the Champion. There is also a referent back to Chesed.
The Flame Principle, on the other hand, connects us to Tuesday, the Number Three, the Third Chakra, the Manipura, and the Three Flame Runes, Kaunaz Nauthiz and Tiwaz. The Character is the Warrior, with a referent to Geburah.
