Tough question, but excellent question…It is difficult to transfer meanings here, This is more like…

If you accidentally poke yourself with a thorn, you will draw your hand back quickly and knock the glass off the table.

If you stop and think, you will notice the thorns, and behave accordingly.

Notice the thorns, fail to notice the thorns. Both are “Clearing” actions. One through a reaction to your action, and one is the result of your forethought (action).

So it has the element of the Emperor of the careful discipline (perhaps) and the sudden reactions causing danger (perhaps) like the tower, but not really.

Catastrophic divine change comes in a later rune, as does, controlled change (a later rune also).

For most runes, they are different in concept, and culture, than tarot.
