Keywords

Independent, composed, intelligent

Artist Interpretation

Dressed in her pink gown and wings, this monster queen stands high on top of a mountain in the warm sun. Her sword is pointed up toward the sky with confidence and clarity.

Card Meaning

Don’t let your heart rule your head! The Queen is alone, not isolated, but fiercely independent, strong and steady, at the peak of her intellectual journey. You should, like this Queen, always look upward, keep aiming to better yourself. Be aware of emotion, compassionate in your dealings with others, but not dominated by it. Do not let your thoughts be clouded by confusion, instead, use your razor sharp mind to analyze a situation carefully, and then decide.

Featured Card of the Day – Justice – Monstarot from Joanna Nelson Studio

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Joanna Nelson

Website: JoannaNelsonStudio.com

Keywords

Balance, integrity, consequences

Artist Interpretation

She holds a balanced scale in one hand, sword in the other and wears a golden flower behind her furry ear. Fairness and balance is a big part of who she is and what she believes. She has set out on a journey in search of the truth.

Card Meaning

Our actions have consequences, and these are playing out now. What is happening, good or bad, is deserved. It’s time to be fair, to think clearly, not allowing preconceptions, external distractions or excuses to cloud your judgment (there are no clouds on the Justice card, just clear skies all the way). You need to weigh things up impartially, and act accordingly, trusting that things will work out as they’re supposed to. Justice is not easy, but it’s worth the fight and the sacrifices you are asked to make.

Keywords

Tension, chaos, competition

Artist Interpretation

Five bugs swat at each other playfully, but competitively. Each is hitting the other’s wands to see who can knock a wand free from one bug’s grasp. They are testing each other’s strengths, while friends cheer from the sideline.

Card Meaning

Conflict or competition? You’re dealing with daily niggles that feel like they’re stopping you from moving forward the way you want to, and it’s irritating. But how will you deal with it? Will you allow this tension and strife to block you? Or will you rise above it, and use it as motivation to get better? Are these issues really delaying you? Or are they honing your skills and giving you valuable experience for the future?

Balance, juggling work and home life

Artist Interpretation

Juggling on the beach, this card represents maintaining balance within your life. Not only do we need to maintain our serious business and work side, but also be sure not to forget and leave out our playful paper hat wearing side, or our friends and family.

Card Meaning

Work to live, don’t live to work… this is a time for balance, for juggling your life and managing your time. There is no point in working so hard for your family, and to get the lifestyle you aspire to, if you push them away at the same time. Make sure that you don’t overload yourself, or take on too much too quickly, and ensure that you take the time you need to appreciate what you have along the way.

Stalemate, putting off decisions, compromise

Artist Interpretation

Eyes closed tight to avoid a decision, she stands tall in the sea among rock and island obstacles. In order to direct a clear passage for her paper boat, she must open her eyes and take in all the information needed for the solution.

Card Meaning

You can’t put this off any longer. You can close yourself off from the situation and bury your head in the sand all you want, but it’s not going to help – a decision needs to be made. You may think that it’s making you happier and more peaceful to avoid it, but it’s just going to make things worse in the long run. You need to open your heart and mind and really look at the issues at hand, then make and informed choice.
