Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meaning

“This card is about upcoming struggles and the power within us to overcome the, so I painted a girl surrounded by eight sticks/staffs, they were supposed to keep her captive, but she used one of the nine wands to escape and carved a little trident with it, turning her captivity into something positive, overcoming it!”

A sea maiden stands clutcing a trident, her head tilted to one side, showing tiredness, but not defeat. Behind her eight wands stand, traditionally forming a wall around her, here they are green, indicating obstacles that she has overcome – a cape from which she has recently escaped. This is a momentary rest to catch her breath before going back into the fight. Her trident symbolizes her power – the power of spirit to keep on track, to keep fighting and get through this battle.

This card represents the draining feeling of a setback right before you hit your goal – taking the wind out of your sails, but you have to keep fighting, you’re too close not to. You take a moment to tap into levels of resilience you didn’t know you had, and get back to it.
