General meaning: This is the big time mental breakthrough that you’ve been waiting for. The air clears and you see the light at last. The “aha” moment. Fresh ideas and new ways of viewing things. If you find yourself in a debate, you will be able to make your point. Mental sharpness and the ability to cut through the crap. Cutting the head off the hydra. Truth will set you free. Surgery. A new job with more mental stimulation. This card can also indicate the beginning of a conflict – make sure you are armed well, homie.
Reversed: Power plays that turn ugly. Mental aggression, blockages or stress. Can’t see clearly. Your vision is blocked. Mental chaos. The inability to let go. Dishonesty; speaking with a forked tongue. Fighting unfairly. All promises, no follow through. Wussing out. Loss of the battle (and your street cred). Stick a fork in it, you’re done.
