Did you ever wonder why Amazon named their company Amazon?
I know I have. The origins of the word Amazon are unclear.
The Amazon rainforest located mainly in Brazil, the largest tropical rainforest in the world provides valuable resources. The Amazon River runs 4000 miles through Brazil and in other South American countries. Archeologists claim that there are remnants of trade in the Amazon basin indicating foreign explorers before Columbus discovered America. Could the power of the Amazon indicate the naming of Amazon?
In Greek mythology, Amazons were a race of women warriors. They were highly trained courageous fighters. Amazon women did not fit in with established rules of society and rejected traditions. Perhaps Amazon named their company, because in inception it defied rules of traditional stores.
Many images depict an Amazon woman on a horse in battle. In my mind, an Amazonian is a combination of the Queen and Knight of Air \ in the Tarot. They both are focused and articulate. The Air/Sword suit is about communication and thoughts.
