This week’s Harrow card is like a burst of sunshine on a cloudy day. The Big Sky shows two people in chains, one of whom has broken his shackles and is reveling in the beaming, brilliant sun above. The other person looks on with a sense of wonder and curiosity. The sky itself is mostly cloudless, allowing the sun to shine down on everything.
As might be obvious from the image on the card, The Big Sky is about freedom and casting off restraints. However, like every card in the Harrow, there is much more going on than the surface suggests.
The Big Sky is aligned Chaotic Good, a philosophy that combines benevolence with independence. It is the alignment of people who follow their passions, regardless of what society or the law says, and still remain of good heart. It is the alignment of rebels and visionaries, people who do the right thing regardless of what others say. Certainly, the man at the center of The Big Sky is such a person, happily casting off the shackles that have bound him.
