This week’s Harrow card, The Dance, is a whirl of movement and color. The card features a brightly-clad dancer in mid-spin, her hair and scarves twirling with her. She holds an elaborate staff in one hand, while the other makes a gesture that could be a mystic symbol. Surrounding her are three glowing spheres that follow her movements.
The Dance is a card of movement that is directed and purposeful. It belongs to the suit of Keys, which corresponds with Dexterity, the ability that governs agility, flexibility, and our ability to react. This is tempered by the fact that the card is aligned Lawful Good, the alignment of community and harmony, where the needs of the many are greater than the needs of the few. In this light, we can see The Dance as a card of universal harmony in movement. For The Dance to succeed, every individual dancer must do their part and step their steps.
