homeward bound




Auspicious for people in important positions. Disregard idle chatter. Everything will be all right.

The Lines (base to top)

Caning and imprisonment
Drinking beer when they show up
Hemmed in by high rocks and thorns
Shiny car travels slowly
Men in red robes, torturers
Trapped amid strong twining vines


Lake over water.

A lake empty of water. Torturers who come to take away the disappeared. A car bearing a prisoner. The images are grim, but setbacks can be strengthening, and the long-term prognosis is favorable.

Don't give up hope.
