abandonment, loneliness in a relationship, sadness and grief, the separating power of fate, the widow
Interpretation of the card:
Astrological Sign: Libra/Capricorn ︱ Planet: Venus/Saturn
A woman, dressed in black as a sign of mourning, sits on a stone. In the background, symbols of her loss can be seen, such as broken pillars and a bleak, desolate, barren landscape. In the past, it was an unwritten law to wear black clothes after the death of a close relative. The surviving spouse usually had to openly show that they were grieving for a year, and were therefore not yet open to a new relationship. This custom was useful as it indicated that the widow/widower was ready for a new partner after their deep and lonely mourning period.
