The Silicon Valley Tarot

The Layoff

The Layoff

The hand of management casts the terminated into a parking lot under darkening skies. Some are dejected and resigned, but one turns back, head held high, and pronounces a curse. Or is it gratitude? Depends on the severance package. Rejection, failure, incompetence, inability to recognize shortcomings. Reversed: new beginnings, risk, promise.
