Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meaning

“The steed of the wide-eyed Knight, the Skelly Seahorrs, transports this whimsical rider to fantastic new realms. Also making an appearance in this story is the Octo- Worry Wart. The Worry Wart is the unvoiced fear of the adventurer. As the Knight charges fearlessly ahead, Worry Wart already knows the dangers of this world. His missing eye alludes sto some trying times. If the Knight stopped to think about what could go wrong, he might be paralyzed. It’s best to let Worry worry about that! The funny, furry creatures at the bottom are Capybara, the world’s largest rodent! Their smiling demeanor and hippo-like features enliven any water scene! They love a good swim and are the first to alert if something is amiss!”

At the bottom of the sea, a skeletal seahorse rears up, ready to charge off with the Knight of Wands on his back. His armor is an antique diving suit with two hummingbird skulls on his helmet. Between the skulls is the spark that spurs this Knight on. Within the Page it was an idea, but the Knight will make it reality. The sea surrounding him is clear blue, no obstacles in his way – just companions in the form of gazelles, a creature who will be able to match his speed as he charges off, determined, on a mission.

The Knight of Wands is on fire, he rushes in without always thinking things through first. For him, life is one giant adventure, whether it’s to a far-off land, or to the local park.

Featured Card of the Day – Queen of Pentacles – 78 Tarot Nautical/Tarot of the Water

Maternal, nurturing, resourceful, security, dependable

Artist’s Interpretation and Card Meaning

“This card really struck a chord with me, I’ve always felt a kinship with mother-type figures (being a mother of three myself), and had a fascination with the concept of Mother Nature figures throughout different cultures.

The importance of the figure is that she is holding the coin, as though holding a child. Said to represent her material wealth. One thing I have learned in art history, is the *positioning* of the figure is just as key. She’s cradling the wealth, it also represents her motherly love. So I placed the coin not just in her lap, but mimicking the placement of a pregnant belly, her hands resting on it the way mine often did when I was very round with my babies. Because that, too, is a form of wealth.”

A beautiful woman with lush red lips sits on an opulent thron. On her lap sits a large coin and a jeweled crown adorns her head. She sits within an abundant kelp forest, teeming with life and sheltering her, and she is at the very heart of it. She is successful, not only materially and financially, but also in terms of family and love. Her lips give a hint of sensuous nature of this Queen – she has a full life and she loves every minute of it.

This card represents a figure that has it all, but it has not come easy. Her life is a constant juggle, her mind is constantly whirring, but she embraces it. She is dedicated to her family and team, eager to share the spoils of her work.

Featured Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – 78 Tarot Nautical/Tarot of the Water

Posted on Updated on

Mire of your own making, impotence, fear, isolation

Artist’s Interpretation and Card Meaning:

“In my representation, symbolism of Japanese shibari immediately struck me as having a strong connection with the meaning of the card. Like the lady, the bounded person is restrained only through her own acceptance of the situation, she really retains full control over the precess and can decide to leave freely at any time.

The air element, generally associated with the suit of swords, is hinted at by the wind in her dress and her long, black hair.

Isolated, trapped between the sea, the land and the sky, Mont Saint Michel diffuses a powerful sense of spirituality. Using the image in my representation suggests that the city in the distance is a symbol of spiritual elevation, that can be reached only by shedding the bounds of one’s own fears and preconceptions.”

A woman is bound and blindfolded, eight swords surrounding her like a cage, suspended above the water, in air that blows her hair and dress. Behind her is a pathway to an island town, but she cannot see it. Grey clouds above her symbolize that she has lost all hope. But she could get free from her bondage, remove the blindfold, and there is space between the swords for her to escape. The sea swirls below her, but her feet never get wet – this is not a physical or emotional prison, but a cold and dry prison of logic.

This card reflects a mental cage of your own making – there are options to free yourself if you only look. You may feel that you are alone in the world, but you’re not.
