The Philosopher of Chains



An entry in the Seventh Sanctum's Tarot Contest.

The Philosopher of Chains symbolizes the dangers of narrow-minded thinking, and the constraints of the human mind. When upright, it signifies a mental block of some sort on the part of the querent - an obstacle preventing his or her creativity from flourishing. This most commonly manifests as Writer's Block.

The card reversed signifies the opposite - an unfettered, open mind, possibly even chaotic in its lack of restraint. This can mean one of two things: a period of extremely vivid imagination, or a degeneration into madness.

Alternately, it could just be a small rectangle of paper with a chained-up sophist on it. :XD:
