The Tower, reversed; Knight of Rods; Eight of Cups
In the immortal words of my dear friend Patti: “Well, damn.”
Should not have been surprised to see the Tower turn up today; it is the Universal Tarot Symbol for “Everything is Completely Screwed and I’m Not OK.” It indicates violent change, disruption, adversity and misery. Reversed, it warns of staying in a rut, or of continued oppression. The next two cards both represent movement, but as the illustrations indicate, in opposite directions. The Knight of Rods symbolizes willingness to move forward into the unknown; the Eight of Cups symbolizes abandoning a work before it is completed.
The world is changing. Nothing can stop that. Will it move forward or backwards? That is the choice before us.
