The Night-Blooming Cereus card (or cactus card), represents the ephemeral. While something may be perfect for a time, all things are fleeting. Changes of state are both natural and essential to the flow of life. Appreciate that which is beatuiful, but knowthat it is not eternal. The angiosperm flowering plants all have blooms which last a time but eventually fade, they are essential to their life, yet do not span the life of their being.
