Also take a look where she is, and what the scene is beyond. The sky is grey, and the sea is rather choppy, indicating a time which may have been turbulent, unclear and clouded, so to speak, like that might indicate her mind. But where she is, she is somewhat protected, to a certain degree, because she is in a walled area, but the walled area is not complete. The walls seem to be in a state of disrepair, either they have been knocked down by manual means, or has been worn down by the elements. Perhaps indicating knocking down the walls that have kept her imprisoned in her mind, maybe! Which goes back to the meaning of the Rider-Waite, which was just not about recuperation and meditation, but to be in a state of introspection and retrospection which brings about a greater self-understanding.
