MEDITATION: Coming to terms with the unknown: mirages, muses, avatars, and phantom brides.
BEWARE: Beware of drawing the curtains, stopping the clocks, and hushed tones where it is certain the word Death is avoided. If something needs to die today, face it with logic so something new can be born tomorrow.
HIDDEN STRENGTH: Independent thinker. Always having an Ace tucked up your sleeve for plan B.
HIDDEN WEAKNESS: Avoiding and warding off certain things not understood. Don't allow superstition to influence thinking and actions. Check into a hotel on Friday the 13th and request Room 13. Sometimes Room 13 is missing or is discreetly numbered 12 A.
SLANT: This card is a museum of old superstitions, and on the other side of slant, has a strong hold on the belief of personal magick.
POWER: Superstition Mountains in Arizona where superstition reaches its peak.
