Featured Card of the Day – Curiosity – 78 Tarot Nautical ~ Tarot of the Water

Artist: Michael Banks

Website: SugarFueled.com


Curious, warning, distraction, opportunity, carefree

Artist Interpretation

“This curious, carefree little kitten is living his life on the edge. Enjoying candy fish and the pearls in a wide sea of opportunities, paying no attention to the dangers that may lie ahead. The candy fish and pearl represent a sweet life and riches while the hook and water’s edge represent danger. My trademark broken star painted as a starfish represents perseverance on his journey. Luckily this sweet little cutie has nine lives and doesn’t have to give up on his dreams after one try.”

Card Meaning

A curious kitten plays on the beach. A candy fish lies within his easy reach, a pearl is in a partially open oyster right in front of him – life is good, full of easy opportunity. But a storm gathers, waves crashing on the beach behind him, and a dangerous hook lies close enough that he should be careful. He seems oblivious, but the starfish beside him is a reminder to keep going despite any adversity, and this kitten, like all cats, has 9 lives if things turn out to be too dangerous…

How to Use a Wild Card

Cousins to the Major Arcana, Wild Cards often pop up in readings when you least expect them. Unlike traditional Tarot cards, they are characters that come alive only within the theme of this deck and nowhere else in existence. Each one brings with them a special message created for the readers of the 78 Tarot Nautical deck.
