    • Oppression, fear and anxiety 
    • A dark place of fear and suffering
    • It’s currently an extremely difficult time
    • There seems to be nowhere to turn to for help
    • This despair has grown out of control
    • This does not quell the pain, but points towards a solution for these problems must be faced
    • “A dark night of the soul”

    1. Tarot cards themselves started out as a Medieval card game amongst the “upperclass”, but tarot reading has roots in both Romani and Jewish spirituality.
