The Card’s Interpretation
A man stands on the edge of the cliff, setting out on a new adventure. He’s looking upward towards the sky (towards the spiritual world) and seems to be unaware that he’s about to fall. He carries a knapsack that contains everything he needs. He’s followed by a small white dog that represents loyalty and, sometimes, the inner beast that is a part of our consciousness. The animal seems to encourage him to move forward and learn the lessons. It urges him to walk into the unknown world while armed with his impetus and his ability to be free.
His knapsack is tiny; he may be unaware of what the bag actually contains. He will discover it during his journey.
His spontaneity and naive desire to change his life can be reflected in your love life. It means that this month, you may get carried away by all sorts of emotions and free yourself from prejudice.
In general, this card symbolizes the willingness to live a life full of adventures but it also tells you to be careful and not act immaturely.
