The Roach

Earth, Waning Gibbous (7)


Inescapable, inevitable, side effects, unwanted, uninvited guests

Reversed Meaning:

Unchangeable nature, denial

Basic Interpretation:

The unwanted brother of humanity has invited himself to the feast. The revelers despise the Roach's presence, but can do little to eliminate him. After all, does he not thrive on the same conditions and food as his unwilling hosts? This card represents unwanted side effects or an unchangeable nature.


Spoiled food, a bird cage, beer or wine.

Plot Suggestions:

An unwanted relation comes to stay for awhile; a wedding; a raiding party attacks; an annoying friend joins the story; an envious attempt to steal one's most prized possession.
