9 of [ / ] Spades
The Chaotic Infinity:
-- Vacuous & Bemoaning
Nothing, empty, black and scary
Vacuous, confused and weary
Insanity, dark abyss drawing in
Damnation, no more sin
Vacuous doom bemoaning
Abysmal damnation brooding
The sky is black. You are dead. Bats emerge from hell, your new home. Nine swords point the way, and like a fence, prevent you from going anywhere else but down. A skull and crossbones mark you as deceased. This is the card of the abyss. The black sky reminds us to mourn for the dead.
The skull and crossbones also indicate that this card is about danger and damnation. If you are not dead yet, you are certainly doomed. Clearly, danger is at your door.
The loony-eyed bats, and the full moon, remind us that this card is also about insanity, dementia and lunacy. Confusion will be your epitaph.
You are crying now.
The moon is setting. Thank God this horrible night is over. Thank God winter is over. What next? Go again?
You will end up with nothing. You will have lots of headaches. You will go insane. You will fall into a deep dark well, and never get out.
Don't be afraid of the dark. Don't give in to the dark side. Don't look into the abyss. Don't believe in nightmares. Don't cry. Don't isolate yourself like a hermit. Don't be crazy.
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
Empty wagons make the most noise.
