“A boldly-colored kraken peers up from his underwater kingdom. He spies a ship that is his for the taking. Although he is already successful in his endeavors, as evident by the pearl wrapped up in his tentacle, he must decide how far he wants to expand his grasp on ruling the oceans. Should he stay beneath the water and rule where he is most familiarm, or rise to the surfact and rule the world above?
I wanted to push myself to mentally be in an ambitious state of mind as that is mostly what this card is about. I had to make some very important decisions to make sure I could successfully convey this card’s meaning.”
In a sea teeming with fish, a huge kraken eyes a ship from below. He has the perfect vantage point from where he sits – between the pillars of an ancient ruined city, over which he appears to rule. A pearl is entwined within one of his tentacles – his endeavors so far have been successful. Now he needs to move on. Five of his tentacles are raised toward the ship, the red of this kraken lusts for adventure and to continue on his path, while two remain wrapped around the pillars, keeping him here for the time being.
This card represents the importance of making plans and acting on them. The fires of inspiration from the Ace of Wands have taken root, now is the time to build upon that momentum and turn these plans into reality.
