Featured Card of the Day – The Moon – Monstarot from Joanna Nelson Studio

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Joanna Nelson

Keywords

Dreams, intuition, illusions

Artist Interpretation

The gentle sleeping Moon helps guide you by providing a dim light along the path you will travel towards, a higher understanding. It’s time to find a way to stop letting your imagination run wild with anxiety and fear. Things are not as they appear. Instead, listen to the soft sounds of your inner voice. The bug plans a sweet melody on the violin, into the night sky. Digging deep now past the illusion and deception, meditate on that melody which is your inner voice singing to you.

Card Meaning

The sleeping Moon represents dreams, and reminds us that its light casts only shadows. Here is a world of dark things that are not quite what they should be, more what you perceive them to be…it’s time to trust in your instincts and intuition to fully understand what’s going on.

Featured Card of the Day – The Hierophant – Monstarot from Joanna Nelson Studio

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Joanna Nelson

Website: JoannaNelsonStudio.com

Keywords

Guidance, tradition, knowledge

Artist Interpretation

Carrying a very special tree branch as his sceptre, and wearing a sacred wrap around his fur, the Hierophant stands between two birch trees burning, one white ritual candle on his antler. He is an educator and here to share his wisdom, experience, the old ways and traditions.

Card Meaning

You have a choice between listening to advice and following a conventional path, or ignoring others and going it alone. The Hierophant recommends that you go with the flow in this situation. He is a traditionalist, a role model, and has wisdom to impart. The trees forming pillars behind him are suggestive of an entranceway – he can open doors to you and act as a guide, offering illumination (the candle on his antler), but only if you listen to his teachings, and play by the rules.

Healing, hope, inspiration

Artist Interpretation

The Star monster showers down water to encourage personal growth. Five drops sprinkle from the cloud, representing the five senses.  Believe in the power of the Universe, it’s time for transformation, as a healing tree of energy sprouts from her fur, inviting a sacred bird of thought.

You are inspired to make positive changes in your life, and the Star is ready to bring you hope and to guide you from the darkness into a happier and calmer phase of your life. A celestial body, asking you to trust in the Universe, and reminding you that you, too, are a creature of the cosmos, beloved and watched over. The light of the Star empowers all of your senses, healing and transforming you, recharging your self-esteem, and making you feel you can achieve anything.

Featured Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Monstarot from Joanna Nelson Studio

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Joanna Nelson

Website: JoannaNelsonStudio.com

Keywords

Impotence, fear, isolation

Artist Interpretation

Bound in place by her own tail and surrounded by swords, this little monster stands in a barren land, with her eyes closed tight. She is trapped in her own mind, and although there are always answers, she cannot see any way out at the moment.

Card Meaning

You have the power here, even if you don’t feel like it. You’re in a mire of your own making. You feel trapped and isolated, but the only thing blocking your way is yourself. Even though you can’t see it right now, there is a way out of this…just have faith in yourself. Shake yourself free, open your eyes and let yourself see the situation clearly. Move out of your own way, don’t let your doubts and fears hold you back.

Inaction, intuition, mysteries

Artist Interpretation

The High Priestess stands perched and balanced on her crescent Moon, the guardian of the unconscious. A magical dream moth flies to her to greet her in the evening sky, bringing insight and understanding of the Universe

Card Meaning

It’s time to pause and listen to your inner voice – the wisdom within your soul that will not steer you wrong. The High Priestess is influenced by the Moon, a symbol of dreams and intuion, and she reminds us to wait a moment before making a judgment – to take the time to look, and really see, to listen and really hear. The outside world can distract you, things are not always as they appear…true understanding is what’s needed here before taking action.

Featured Card of the Day – 7 of Cups – Monstarot from Joanna Nelson Studio

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Joanna Nelson

Website: JoannaNelsonStudio.com

Keywords

Temptation, decisions, fantasy

Artist Interpretation

Seven gold cups float on the clouds. The little purple monster is intrigued by all that they hold and wonders which he would choose. He must think carefully, not everything is as it appears.

Card Meaning

Not all is as it seems. Dreams can soothe us, they can inspire us, and even help us to explore our darker selves, from the safety of our sleep. They can be wonderful, beautiful retreats where we can indulge in our fantasies and explore the decisions before us without changing anything in reality. But they are illusion – they distort the truth and can distract us from action on the hopes and desires we hold in the waking world. You have to ensure you don’t blur the line between fantasy and reality.

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

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Joanna Nelson

Website: JoannaNelsonStudio.com

Keywords

Rebirth, forgiveness, judgment

Artist Interpretation

A great, majestic, winged monster hovers in the sky blowing a golden trumpet, waking and calling the bugs to rise up to the surface of the earth. Climbing up out of their underground holes, the little bugs see the light of day for the first time and reach their arms up looking to embrace a higher sense of self, hope and inspiration.

Card Meaning

It’s time to clean house. Look honestly at yourself and your past, at your actions and their consequences. See yourself as others see you, and learn from both your mistakes and accomplishments. Then let go of the past and move on. This is not a chore to be feared, but a cleansing of the spirit to be embraced – the micro bugs welcome judgment, answering the call, ready for rebirth, eager to be admitted to the realms that await.
