They say that everybody has a twin out there, and that’s even true for the Harrow deck. This week’s card, the Twin, is a deceptively simple-looking card that carries a great deal of meaning. On the left-hand side, we see a man, and on the right, his negative-image double. A hazy, purple energy seems to connect the two men at the head. The man on the left has a neutral, welcoming expression on his face, but his double has a decidedly more sinister countenance and a dagger hidden behind his back.
The Twin is a card of duality and of the conflicts that arise within ourselves. The card is part of the Suit of Crowns, which corresponds to the ability of Charisma. Beyond simply being a measure of our force of personality and ability to lead, Charisma is also a measure of our self-confidence, sense of self, and how we perceive ourselves in relation to the world. The Twin represents a disruption in that sense of identity, whether for good or for ill.
