This week’s Harrow card is as bold and bright as its name: The Trumpet. There are actually two trumpets shown on this card. There is of course the trumpet itself spouting celestial fire, but blowing the trumpet is an angelic warrior called a trumpet archon. In his other hand, the archon holds a deadly blade. His wings are spread, and based on the movement of his tunic, he appears to be in mid-flight.
The Trumpet, like the archon dominating the frame, is a card of righteous power. Interestingly enough, the card is not from the suit of Hammers — which normally associates with Strength — but the suit of Shields, which associates with Constitution. While the trumpet archon is a strong and fierce fighter, his strength springs from his unfailing endurance. He is more concerned with fighting as long as possible, not as hard as possible.
