The Ailment

- meaning of Symbolon card and archetype -

hindrance, learning difficulties, disability, being slowed down
Interpretation of the card:
The image depicts Mercury, the winged messenger of the gods in classical mythology, looking tired and downcast. He has a broken leg and is using crutches, symbolizing that his normal swiftness and agility have been impeded. The surrounding landscape is barren and desolate, with no signs of human life or settlements, which adds to the feeling of isolation and difficulty. The presence of Saturn, known for shaping fate, further emphasizes the need for caution and careful consideration on this journey.

The meaning of the Ailment Symbolon card
1) As a single or first card The problem
You have temporarily lost your ability to move freely. Your movement is slow and unsteady, you are stuck in one place. You still don't understand why this stage in your development is so significant that you must stay here for a prolonged period. You feel restricted because you don't want to acknowledge that you can't fly and that your wings are damaged.
​​​​​​​2) As the next cardWay through the problem
You need to take greater responsibility for both your thoughts and actions. Before taking your next step, ask yourself why you are doing or saying what you are. You cannot move forward without taking the time to reflect on this question. Deal with the obstacles in your path and be patient with yourself.
3) as the last card︱​​​​​​​Result
The person has started their journey. There are times when they wander alone in the desert and there are elevated moments when they can dance and jump. They have experienced both periods and learned to take responsibility for the current phase of their life. They now see their own life circumstances as a neutral, objective, and patient observer, understanding their experiences.
