27 - Platyhelminthes
The Planarian card represents multiple outcomes. While a singular event may seem to be concrete, there are always variations from one singular point. It is not always possible to control these events, but understanding variation that can exist can be critical to understanding an outcome. Embracing variety brings acceptance. When unsure of the outcome of a major or minor event, understand variation, but limit its scope to plausibility. With their simple body plan, flatworms can often survive major trauma, such as bifurcation of the head, by simply growing two heads where once there was one. Despite this change of perspective to the world, the worms remain able to survive and thrive as they inevitably split into two functional individuals from this trauma.
