Reverse Meaning

If you draw this card in reverse, it indicates that there is a lack of harmony in your home environment. This could be down to a breakdown in communication, or due to an external threat. You may be caught up in other people’s issues, such as a family quarrel or a lover’s tiff. This is perhaps causing you to question your own relationships, causing you to create issues that aren’t there. The reverse of stability means change, and you are likely going through a shit of circumstances, perhaps in the form of a new job or moving home. Though change is hard, keep in mind that this move is necessary for your future happiness.
