You have the power to break through imprisoning walls, making doorways into new possibilities or the power to destroy for destruction’s sake either way involves risk. The collapsing walls leave you open to the world or may bring a shower of stones upon your head, but life without risk is a prison of your own making. Destruction leaves space for creation as creation contains the destruction of what came before. The world is built upon layers of growth and devastation. In order to build anew the old structures must be cleared, the ground made ready for the seeds of what will be.


The moment of devastation has arrived, crack of the whip, lash of lightning, the crumbling walls and all the prisoners released to the music of mayhem, and yet there is an opening in the world where barriers existed. If you can hunker down and outlast the aftershocks opportunities will present themselves to your awaiting mind.

Things have fallen apart, disaster is upon you, and it seems as though there is no solid ground on which to stand. You must piece things together and make due facing the events that lead up to the disaster and taking a close look at your life to see what you can draw out of the fiery forge that will make you stronger and more capable moving on.

Destruction or disaster is immanent and can only be avoided by a violent maneuver on your part that may bring about an equally devastating situation, but there is also a chance that the resulting damage may be mitigated by opportunities that will not be available if the original threat is allowed to proceed into reality.
