50 - Basidiomycota

The Mushroom card is renewal in its most fundamental state. Beyond death there is decay, from decay there is life. Despite difficulty, tragedy, or death there is promise of renewed life and vitality. Despite vitality, there is always the promise of death. In life there is death. In death there is life. In reading this must be considered with the subject and surrounding circumstance, but a reminder of death is always prudent, and a reminder that it brings life is all the more so. Within this Phylum are some of the most well known mushroom species, and they are the most visible signs of life renewed from death to the human eye. Their interlinked nature to all things that live is a constant reminder that decay is an extant form of life.
