One can see the fungi as the Uranium series of the Plant kingdom. The situation is that on the edge of life and death. Fungi are growing in dying plants and trees, breaking down the wood. They break down all kinds of decaying and dead matter.
They are mostly unseen. Fungi can cover an entire forest as one mycelium but no one sees them. Only the mushroom is the visible part and then only for some time and not for all species.

Ailments from disasters, accidents, war, violence; families shattered and torn apart, death of relatives, parents, friends.
Peaceful coexistence in the beginning.
They feel hollowed, mouldered, vague, weak.
Invasion, being eaten away; limits of body let infringed; insidious, less aggressive.
Invaded form being too weak.
Being in another world, the spiritual world.
On the edge of life and death.
Interest in death, graveyards, ghosts.
Intuition, clairvoyance.
Superhuman powers, strength.
Unseen, unseen power.
Theme: toads, mushroom forms as in nuclear bombs.
Theme: elves.
My system, my body is not okay. My body is sick.
Me versus you on a cellular level.
Peaceful coexistence in the beginning; eats further away; limits of body let infringed; insidious, less aggressive.
Fall only if you are too weak.

General: cancer.
Ailments from radiation, radioactive radiation.
Life is retiring, from the extremities to the centre and into death.
Limbs: hands and feet gone, die, become necrotic, develop gangrene.
