Let's, first, describe the card. The background is blue. Blue connotes emotion. There seems to be a great deal of emotion at play here! The figure is dressed in green, brown and yellow. The green and brown colours of the Earth are easy to figure out. I believe they mean that the figure is a physical and grounded person. The bit of yellow on his right arm and depicted as an 'under- garment' tells me that he experiencing an under current of thought, as yellow stands for the Air Element. He stands on the ground at what appears to be a precipice. There are 6 wands pointed at him and he holds one in a firm defensive stance. So, he obviously believes that he needs to defend his way of thinking about something and seems to be feeling a bit pressured about it. Right?
What if he is confused about something, angry and ready to "go over the edge" with his temper or depression? Perhaps, then, the wands that are pointing at him are trying to prevent him from self-destruction. This could be a very stubborn individual who believes he is always right. This might be someone who suffers from an addiction. His ego might be so misdirected that he is bound to fall off the cliff if not stopped.
Then we could have a person who is a strong individual, knows how to stand up for his own beliefs, and follows his own path no matter what "everyone else is doing."
Hmmm, reading this card is not easy is it? This is an example of how each card can have various meanings. If I drew this card in a formal reading for someone, I would have to look at the other cards that surround it in order to figure out which person I had here. This would expand the picture and information, so that we could get to the reality of the situation being divined and help to empower this person on his unique journey to fulfil his destiny! This would then, hopefully, give this person what is needed to "engage life, not to escape it!"
