individuality, uniqueness, destiny
The timbre (TAM-bur) of an instrument is what allows it to be differentiated from other instruments; it is its own unique sound. What gives an instrument its timbre is its physical attributes: the materials from which its made, its planes, curves, openings, its vibrating and stationary parts. Each of these attributes engage specific harmonics and resonances when the instrument is sounded, and together give the instrument its color, its distinct harmonic signature.
The Timbre Card represents our individuality, the singular resonant shape we are each uniquely given to sound. In a casting, the Timbre Card can refer to asserting our individuality, to being ourselves; it can also point to the uniqueness of what's at hand, and the singular approach required to handle it. Finally, the Timbre Card can refer to destiny: timbre is an inherent quality, and we may find ourselves confronting issues of "filling our shoes," of living the life we deeply wish to lead.
To divine the meaning of this card in a casting, consider the Solfege Die it was drawn above or under.
