24 - Orthonectida
The Orthonectida card represents the parallel. Parallel lines travel along the same path, yet never meet. This is neither positive nor negative this is mathematical. One should consider then, where parallels lie between their lives and others, and whether they dwell on these or accept them as simply things that are. In relation to other cards in the reading, consider where their reading may interact with parallels, how they may reinforce following the same or breaking away from them. This small and poorly known phylum is defined by it's extremely simple body plan, consisting of two concentric layers of cells which surround little more than sex cells and possibly pigments. They are known only as parasites of various marine invertabrates.
