Symbols - What does heaven look like

Canopy

A canopy is one of the 8 emblems of good luck in Chinese Buddhism and denotes regal dignity and protection via your Higher spirit.  Thus a canopy is for those who are on the spiritual path and are close to becoming a king or queen or have already become one.  In the Tarot, some of the Knights ride under a canopy on their chariots.

The Lovers in the Tarot are also shown under a canopy.

But a canopy also shares some of the symbolism of the veil, in that it is still a form of barrier between the Earth and Heaven.
