Upright Meanings: fatherhood, older man, structure, rules and power, stability, protectiveness, authority, dependability, logical, father-figure
The appearance of The Provider shows us that domination of the mind over the heart is sometimes necessary even though it is not wanted. In fact he should be welcomed and that is what you must think about when he appears. When hard choices must be made it’s important to maintain your concentration and focus. The Provider signals this but he also signals that now is a time you should find it easier to make hard choices. Enjoy the assertiveness and confidence that this self-control and focus brings. Forge ahead and do what you know is best. If you can master yourself then you should have little problem mastering most of the other obstacles that life throws at you.
Reversed Meanings: rigidity, excessively controlling, loss of business, absentee father, abuse of power, lack of control, family problems, lack of ambition, dependency, stubbornness, lack of discipline
The Provider in reverse can tell us that we are giving our heart more credence than what our mind and logic is telling us. In general that is not a bad thing; but ideally we would be balancing both. Use your mind AND your heart, the reversed card tells us. You may be easily distracted now and could find it hard to maintain your concentration and focus. Yet drawing The Reversed Provider indicates that concentration and focus is vital now.
