I'm on the prod, not surprising the draws this week have all been shown with claws. The bat signifies a time of change and transformation at hand, I can believe it because I've been thrown into one of my ruthless moods.
I'm reminded by this card pulling something out by the roots allows space for something more worthwhile to bloom, which is the Aztec story of Bat in a nutshell. Weeds also love an empty space, and once allowed in are difficult to remove. I'll try for directed change as opposed to the accidental.

Tarot opened previously closed doors to my own heart with it's merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
