XXIV THE HURRICANE
The sky may be clear and blue today, but the forecast shows it out there in the gulf, churning ever closer to landfall. The Hurricane is coming, and there is nothing you can do to stop the destruction it brings. The hurricane is a card reflects on the damaging forces in our life we know about, but cannot control. There is pain and heartache on the horizon, and all you can do is prepare, and try to minimize the damage. This period of your life may be intensely stressful and worrisome, as you know what’s to come, and may feel helpless. Rather than bask in the hopelessness of your situation, make preparations to face the prospects of failure with a level head and open mind. This may refer to an impending judgement that you know will not be in your favor, or an encounter with a person you do not expect to go well. Make sure you have your contingencies ready, and take all necessary precautions before you meet the storm head on.
Reversed: The storm is coming, and you were so worried, you forgot to buy batteries for the flashlight. Reserved, this card suggests that you are so preoccupied with what’s to come, that you are neglecting the present, and what you need to have ready when things go wrong. Take a deep breath and a step back. You have time to figure this out and find your sure footing before the storm hits.
