THE TERMITE SWARM
XXII THE TERMITE SWARM
Just past dusk on a hot summer night, the skies of Louisiana are suddenly flooded with the frenzied activity of swarming formosan termites. Millions flock to all sources of light, creating chaos in their wake, marked with their shed papery wings. And just as quickly as they come, they are gone, and the night is clear once more. Upright, the termite swarm reflects a period of temporary chaos and disruption in your life. While this upheaval may not have lasting effects, it can be impossible to work through in your current state of mind. Examples of this could be the sudden break down of a car, or the impositions of an unwelcome houseguest. This card urges you to recognize that some challenges, though seemingly monumental, are temporary, and normalcy will soon be restored.
Reversed: You’ve stayed outside too long, and now you’re covered in bugs.While you may want to run around screaming as you bat the termites away, it’s important to remember they are harmless, and you’re better off staying calm. Reversed, this card suggests your reaction to a current situation may be overblown, hindering your ability to address your difficulties objectively. Try to keep your head and avoid causing any unnecessary confrontation during this period of chaos. You will thank yourself when it is over.
