The World, the Knight of Rods, the Nine of Swords
And here we are, stuck between the weight of the entire world and what feels like endless sorrow. Quarantine drags on, keeping us from our friends, family, and goals. Students are bracing themselves for exams on subjects they’ve never studied in a classroom. People have lost jobs and homes. Around 400,000 people have died in the United States alone. If you haven’t lost a family member, you know someone who has. The fact that I’m writing Monday’s post on Thursday speaks to how overwhelmed I am, and we all are, by the current situation.
So let’s talk about our central card, the Knight of Rods. An armored figure on horseback, wearing a helmet adorned with a golden dragon, is riding into the distance. Mountains, or maybe pyramids, rise in the distance. The main message of this card is departure, or a journey into the unknown.
None (or very, very few) of us have experienced anything like this before. We are all traveling in unknown territory. But we are moving. And thanks to technology, we can speak to each other. Let us make this journey together.
