It is the collapse of a hope or a life built by two people. The subject becomes aware that behind the appearances of his partners is another personality. The façade will crack and he appears as he really is: empty and soulless.


The person concerned is a victim of a violent and sudden discomfort (ex: a heart attack). The card may also foreshadow a risk of assault or accident.


This card can indicate enlightenment: the world of appearances will tear, making it appear to the eyes of the subject as the ultimate reality. It can also indicate a fall, the result of pride.
