Adam Bar, meaning “Nature Man” in Hebrew, represents the very first man and how he connected to his surroundings. This card is about new beginnings. In the image, the triangles interlock in such a way that the point of one touches the middle of the base of the other. This symbolizes a pattern in the Universe, where the smallest and the largest are connected at the same point. We can look at many things in life through this pattern, for instance, the present is a small point in our lives, but it is also the largest point, since it represents the oldest we’ve ever been.
Established mystical traditions also see two triangles overlayed in a manner resembling the pattern here to represent a strengthening connection between the human realm and the Divine. The upward-pointing triangle represents humanity's aspiring toward God, while the triangle pointing down symbolizes Heaven's outreach to humanity. Their union is where enlightenment appears.
Adam Bar is telling you that this is a time of profound transformation in your life. The imagery represents a broad coming together of opposites - fire and water, land and ocean, predator and prey, Heaven and Earth. You may be experiencing changes in your life right now that seem to be beyond your complete control, as in your humanness you enter into a new realm of spiritual awareness. Such changes may not be uncomfortable, but they can also be so; you may at this time find yourself asking “Why is this happening to me?” Or, your circumstances may appear as if they should be manageable, but you might have difficulty consistently finding the energy to respond to them as you believe you should.
If this is so, the best response is to release resistance and allow what is happening to unfold in its own way. The caterpillar in the cocoon feels quite confused and uncomfortable as it becomes a butterfly. That the central figure in this card is near the top of the image rather than at the center shows that you are being drawn to a higher state of awareness; like the caterpillar, you are possibly experiencing the discomfort of deep change. Let the process emerge as it will; in the end, you will find yourself graced with greater wisdom and contentment.
