Today’s card is a pretty horrific little number! It reminds me of the “stuff of nightmares” with it’s discombobulated, wildly staring eyeballs, jawbone complete with razor like teeth and maggots crawling and wriggling everywhere.
I suppose it reminds me of my biggest fear…..death and oblivion. The all consuming, ever present spectre of knowing that each day lived takes me one day nearer the grave.
To me this card speaks of the horrible visions and scary “worst case scenarios” which my mind conjures up in the dark of the night, either in sleeping nightmares or waking terrors when insomnia strikes and the brain goes into overdrive. It is the horrible, unthinkable thoughts that plague me in an orgy of anxiety and worry. It is the “dark night of the soul” and the way that it always seems darkest before the dawn. It is the loneliness of the realisation that one day I will be gone from this planet, into the abyss of the unknown, all alone and without the people beloved to me. This, for me is truly a terrifying reality.
