- The truth. Time is a mirror in which we only ever see or experience reflections of ourselves. When we forget this truth, we become fools and misunderstand ourselves and reality. When we remember this truth, we see ourselves in everything and everyone around us. A mirror cannot show us what is truly there, but it does show us a reflection of it. We are the interpreters of that reflection and so create parts of our own reality by the ways we interpret. This card could also be a reference to a mask. What you show to the outside world. What others are showing you. What is the rest of the picture? This card also doubles as a colored card with the color silver, so is open for personal interpretation.
