Featured Card of the Day – 9 of Wands – 78 Tarot Astral ~ Tarot in Space

Artist Interpretation 

As soon as I am given my card I immediately start exploring, learning and trying to understand its meaning. And with this particular card I felt a strong connection, it resonated with me. And I believe it is a card that would hold meaning for most of us at some time in our lives.

My connection with the Nine of Wands was immediate, I pictured a solitary warrior, soldier. A neon beauty from a far galaxy. She has fought a long battle and although weary, she is ready to continue if needed.

We all have faced difficult times, faced trials we thought too difficult to overcome. This card appears to tell us to persevere and not give up.

Card Meaning 

An alien warrior stands, looking wearing and fatigued, a staff in her hand, her wand, containing her power, her weapon to use as and when she needs. Eight more wands hurtle toward her – her fight is not yet won. Resigned but ready, she turns to face the onslaught…

When this card appears in a reading, it’s time to regroup and prepare. Think about how far you have come, and how much you have learned on the way. Consider how much you’ve endured to get to this point, and how much stronger it has made you. You’ve been working so hard for so long that you are weary, but don’t doubt yourself or your capabilities and experience through tiredness. You’ve got this. You’re prepared for this, and the end IS in sight. Give yourself a break – take a bit of time, to rest and recover. Reclaim your motivation and focus. Recharge your mental and spiritual energies and then dig deep into the wells of stamina and resilience that you possess. Harness your inner strength and dive right back in.

Featured Card of the Day – King of Wands – 78 Tarot Astral ~ Tarot in Space

Posted on Updated on

Artist:  Mike Tenebrae

Website:  http://www.tenebraestudios.net

Artist Interpretation 

The astral theme was very appealing to me, as I got a chance to draw up a cool robotic armor suit and indulge in my love of retro-80s futuristic themes. I wanted to create a figure that looked intimidating, but without being menacing. As he is a king, he does not engage much in manual tasks so the suit is really more about aesthetics. I drew inspiration from anime, mech design and space Lego! My original concept was to be more of a regal cloaked figure, it then went to a kind of mobile living fortress (something like the SDF 1 from Robotech) before I finally combined the two into one design. I would like to leave it ambiguous as to whether there is a person wearing the suit, driving the mech or whether it is a sentient machine. His wand is a combination of a scepter and a staff. With its galaxy globe hinting at the potential of power that is waiting to be released.

Card Meaning 

When this card appears in a reading, it is suggesting that it’s time to take charge. Do not be led by others, but instead forge forward on your own path. Your passion and originality will not steer you wrong!! You have the desire, drive and strength you need, just keep focus and don’t allow negativity to affect you. Consult with those who share your vision, work with them enthusiastically and don’t be afraid to lead them when called upon. Rather than waste your time dealing with naysayers who may sap your energy, and try to push you in a direction you’re not happy with.

The King of Wands can also signify an innovative, commanding figure that is in your life currently, or coming into it soon. A born leader, someone unafraid to stand in the spotlight and command, sure of himself and of all his actions and decisions. Offering you a chance to manifest the results you want.

Featured Card of the Day – 7 of Swords – 78 Tarot Astral ~ Tarot in Space

Posted on Updated on

Artist:  Eli Neugeboren

Website:  http://www.elineugeboren.com

Artist Interpretation 

Seven of Swords is traditionally depicted as a figure with a handful of pilfered swords, and irate townspeople off in the distance. It is associated with trying to get away with something, deception, and betrayal. I spent a lot of time developing the main figure, and was very inspired by the mage-cyborg character from the animated short, “Adam” (Unity, 2016). The habitats in the background stand in for the traditional townsfolk, and the swords are some kind of cybernetic hybrid machete, standing scattered in the ground behind our mysterious space warrior-mage. Far off in the background is an orbital habitat, aloof from our hero’s problems.

Card Meaning 

A futuristic mech stands, sword in hand, six more weapons behind him. In the distance there are raised dwellings, but no one follows him. He has snuck away with these weapons, leaving his people less defended, and a satellite approaches, but we cannot condemn him completely, his motives are not yet clear.

When this card appears in a reading, it’s time to take a good, hard look at yourself and what you’re doing. You’re making a break from tradition and going out on your own. But are you making things worse for yourself, and others? Are you being independent, or are you running away? We all need solitude from time to time, but on the other side of the coin, collaboration and teamwork can help us move forward. You need to work this through and decide where your motives truly lie. It’s time to be honest with yourself, face the facts and start behaving differently to improve the future. By hiding away and procrastinating, you certainly aren’t helping yourself, or anyone else.

Featured Card of the Day – 4 of Pentacles – 78 Tarot Astral ~ Tarot in Space

Posted on Updated on

Artist:  Alexandria Sandlin

Website:  http://www.eightandsand.com

Artist Interpretation 

I wanted my card to look like a vintage sci-fi novel cover. Symbolically I had a hard time relating to this card. I don’t like being tied down in life, by things especially. I am a big risk taker, always looking as I leap so I think it’s safe to say I am used to a life that is not full of stability. The way I interpret it is that the figure has her earthly responsibilities, and that is actually a positive thing, to have things to care about. She is floating above, transcending the physical at the same time. I think this card is about balancing the physical and spiritual. Not getting tied down physically or spiritually/mentally with a lot of unnecessary things/ideas/emotions. Being a fly by the seat of my pants kind of person it can be hard for me to see that stability and responsibility are not always bad, not shackles tying you down unless you let them. You can rise above and accept the good in that and let the rest go.

Card Meaning 

An alien princess has travelled away from the vast city where she rules. She hovers above a pentacle, clasping more to her chest, but she has paused, surrounded by her wealth, holding onto it, but doing nothing with it. Not growing, or developing, not using it, or enjoying it. But just hoarding it.

When this card appears in a reading, it’s time for balance. Keeping an eye on your finances is always a good plan, money does not, after all, grow on trees. But when that financial caution makes you feel guilty for spending any money, or enjoying the rewards you work so hard for, it’s gone too far. Life is to be lived. Trying to exercise too much control can give you tunnel vision. It can make you erect walls around yourself, isolating you from the world. Make sure you control your money, rather than letting it control you.

Featured Card of the Day – Desire – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Desires, Wants, Dreams, Ambition, Goals, Price, Gestation, Manifestation, Consequences, Selfishness

Key Phrases

– What do you desire most?
– How much do you want it?
– Desire compels action
– Make another attempt

Card Meaning

To desire – to wish or long for something. To lust or crave is to desire. In simple terms, desire means to want something. Desire is the fourth influence on choice, and when it appears in your reading it asks that you explore your desires and ask what it is that you want – and how much you want it.

What are you willing to do in order to achieve your desires?

Is desire the root of all suffering? Many religious texts state that desire is something that corrupts humanity and blinds us to our true purpose. However, desire is the state of mind that compels you to act and do whatever you feel is necessary in order to fulfill that desire, because you know that you will feel pleasure or be rewarded for fulfilling that desire.

Featured Card of the Day – Queen of Water – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Loving, Compassionate, Empathetic, Sensitive, Vulnerable, Romantic, Intuitive, Emotional Honesty

Key Phrases

– Trust your feelings and senses
– Look beyond the surface
– A bright and positive outcome
– To show vulnerability is to show strength
– Are you overextending emotionally?
– Be the embodiment of love
– Withdrawing love as punishment
– Use your common sense

Card Meaning

The Queen of Water symbolizes a gentle, empathetic soul, who possesses a keen sense of intuition. She is loving, compassionate, and always kind. She knows when something is wrong, when a friend is hurting and in need of comfort or counsel. She is naturally in tune with her emotions, and the emotions of those around her. It is this natural connection and gentleness that draws people to her.

She is empathetic, and would never consider being deliberately cruel or unkind. She is generous and giving of herself to a fault. Only by having, and maintaining, healthy boundaries does this watery queen protect herself from becoming drained.

Her ability to intuitively ‘see’ and ‘know’ is her greatest strength. She looks beyond the surface to what lies within the subconscious, seeing the emotions of old that influence the present. She can sense the mood of a moment or the undercurrents that flow through a room full of people, and, because she can read other’s emotions with ease, she can often distinguish truth from falsehood.

This kbnowledge empowers. With it, the ever-romantic Queen of Water can often offer the perfect solution, particularly in matters of the heart. She believes in the power of love, but is also wise, and knows that relationships need to be nurtured and maintained, that emotional honesty is a key, as is a willingness to share our feelings.

When we share our true feelings we make ourselves vulnerable, but to be willing to do so shows both courage and strength.

Is this Queen a part of your nature? Is there someone in your life who needs or would benefit from your help and loving support?

Or is it you who needs to seek out a like energy in your life, for healing, or guidance?

When the Queen of Water appears in your cards she signifies a very affirming and positive energy, for she is the epitome of love in all of its forms. Take heart, and know that bright days are ahead.
