This week’s Harrow card, The Avalanche, should come with a warning but rarely does. The card shows an avalanche in the middle of its rampage. A number of things are in its direct path, including a wagon, barrels, and a pair of horses. Within the rocks of the avalanche itself, the rough shapes of two fists and a glaring face can be seen.
The Avalanche is a often a frightening sight in a reading, as it tends to represent a swiftly-moving, often unavoidable disaster. It is part of the suit of Keys, which corresponds to Dexterity, the ability that governs speed and movement. In addition, it is aligned Lawful Evil, which uses laws and rules to oppress and destroy others. In this case, The Avalanche is following the laws of nature, and in doing so ends up causing destruction and disorder.
