Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meanings
“I was immediately inspired by the Tarot. I created a male, because Ace of Wands is also a symbol of masculinity. I image this boy walking during a lonely night, in his decadent city (thus little details of graffiti), when he finds the Wand, and it takes magic to take his most beautiful and positive moment of solitude and transform what he has around him, into what he loves. He dreams of the sea, he loves the water…
I represented the betta fish because it is my favorite fish, and a symbol of strength and success (in the world of tattoo). Fish are also a symbol of promiscuity, in this Tarot. Another detail – his corset; I know that in years past, the sailors used to wear the corset. Another thing related to the Nautical theme.”
A young man stands, light and energy pouring from his hands, toward and into a wand. The light is silvery white, symbolizing inspiration and intuition. Betta fish swim around in the water at various points in the image, but all are single – there is no conflict here, no lusty males challenging each other for territory. The aims and dreams of this young man are bold, suggesting the great heights that he might reach on this venture.
This card is less an invitation, more a demand – a lightning bolt of inspiration just struck you. Every creative power in the universe is telling you to go for it, lighting fire under you to get started on your new project. If you keep this focus, there is no way you can fail.
