41 - Glaucophyta

The Blue Green Algae card represents a catalyst. Whether this is the subject of the reading or something the subject should look for is a question left up to the reader. A catalyst is something that creates great change, for good or ill, or perhaps of neutral value, but something that makes for a very different situation from the starting point regardless. The catalyst may be some other element of the reading, or it may be an outside force ready to act upon it. Containing what are likely remnants of an early fortuitous union with cyanobacteria, blue-green algae carry within them something that literally once completely changed the face of the planet itself, developing the atmosphere as we now know it and making a world familiar to all life now living on earth.
