Friday 9/3's card: The Erinyes
In Greek mythology the Erinýes (Ἐρινύες, pl. of Ἐρινύς, Erinýs; literally "the angry ones") or Eumenídes (Εὐμενίδες, pl. of Εὐμενίς; literally "the gracious ones" but also translated as "Kind-hearted Ones" or "Kindly Ones") or Furies or Dirae in Roman mythology were female chthonic deities of vengeance or supernatural personifications of the anger of the dead.
The Erinyes are appearing today because there is a crisis in your life or in the life of someone you know. Crisis can take many forms- mental, physical or even economical. You can not fight this crisis yourself. You need to ask for help or find help for your loved one. This card is a definite call for action.
The Erinyes correspond to the Tower card in a traditional Tarot deck. You are in the middle of a crisis but remember there is always a beam of light to guide your way. When the destruction clears the Star will be waiting for you with her warm light and calming waters.
