This week’s Harrow card, The Uprising, is as dangerous as it is unpredictable. On the card itself, we see an angry mob, complete with pitchforks and torches. A golden crown hangs from a pitchfork carried by a man in peasant’s clothing. Behind the mob, the landscape is illuminated by raging fires.
The Uprising is a card of both upheaval and uncertainty, but it is not inherently positive or negative. Indeed, the card is aligned Chaotic Neutral, essentially meaning that it could be seen as a kind of pure force of change, untempered by law and order or cultural expectations. It is also not a change that can be ignored. As it comes from the suit of Hammers, which corresponds to strength and power, this change is often a very real and tangible one as opposed to a revolution of the mind.
