This is perhaps one of the darkest, saddest, most violent suits in the tarot. It often deals with some of the more somber aspects of life, and often has its characters failing in their endeavors, sometimes with no relief to their hardships. The turmoil represented in this suit, in the Sickly deck and in most decks, rivals any obstacles depicted in any cards from the other suits in the deck, often to dismal ends.
