Artist:  Paulina Cassidy

Website:  paulina.ws

Keywords

Strategy, challenge, competition, disruption, assertiveness.

Artist Interpretation 

In a scuffle, Rumble the tree and Fray the boy have their own strategy about how to bring their ideas to fruition. Fueling the fire of debate, they clank their wands together. In attempting to define their objectives, they may choose to draw upon irrational energy, or they could put their energy to good use by bringing out the best effort in the other in the spirit of healthy competition. They’re the dynamic force between spirit and matter.

Card Meaning 

When faced with an internal struggle, you have the inner-strength to handle it constructively. Creative visions bring creative conflicts. Persistence and moral courage will help you overcome any obstacles. With the right attitude, conflict can be productive. Put forth your best efforts in attaining goals you’ve set in your life. With challenge comes the opportunity for learning, change, and growth. Outside suggestions can often prove helpful.

Reversed

Deception and trickery. Unnecessary competitiveness. Situations getting nasty.

Featured Card of the Day – Page of Wands – 78 Tarot Carnival ~ Cirque du Tarot

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ash Evans

Website: AshEvans.com

Keywords

Originality, haste, creativity, passion, enthusiasm

Artist Statement

“I pulled the colors directly off of the actual Page of Wands card. The original Page was wearing a blue hat with a red feather. I wouldn’t have chosen that palette myself as I really dislike oranges and yellows. I am a very rough sketcher and refine my process as I paint because it is digital and I have the freedom to do that.”

Card Meaning

In the foreground is a finely attired young rabbit, behind him on a barren, sandy landscape, circus tents stand in the distance. He stands easily on a balancing ball, adorned with a salamander who represents transformation and fire. The rabbit gazes at the wand in his hand passionately and speaks to it of the future, telling it of his dreams in the hopes that the wand might magically make them come true. He hopes to create his own path, and thinks of it with enthusiasm rather than fear, for while it is unknown, it has all the potential to be something grand.

This card personifies the dreams of youth, full of potential and energy. A tenacious desire is making you restless, urging you to follow your heart, begin a new creative project, and see where it leads.

Featured Card of the Day – 2 of Wands – 78 Tarot Nautical ~ Tarot of the Water

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Jayde Hilliard

Website: JaydeHilliard.com

Keywords

Confidence, readiness, planning, decisions, progress

Artist Interpretation

“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.”

Card 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.
