Gilded Tarot


A tired soldier retreats from an insurmountable blockade. He is holding himself up by his will, represented by his wand, alone. He did not expect this failure and is puzzled by this situation. His experience did not reflect his expectations. The tiny scarab to his right indicates the quiet voice of his soul. Like the Hermit, Major Arcana IX, the warrior must retreat and regroup. He must compare what he believes to his worldly experience and reconcile them.
You are caught by a failure unawares. Things did not turn out as you planned and you aren't sure why. Take time to reflect, to determine what happened and why. Learn from this situation and resume the battle.
Be aware of despair. While the situation is difficult and perhaps confusing, do not give up. Withdraw to heal and learn, not to escape life.
