Featured Card of the Day – Wheel of Fortune – Monstarot from Joanna Nelson Studio

Keywords

Change, destiny, ups and downs

Artist Interpretation

Riding the wheel of life we have both good and bad times. These little monsters stay optimistic as the wheel turns. This wheel of karma reminds us that for every action there is a reaction. They may also believe that everything happens for a reason, but they know that even when things are down you can fight to get back up on top of that wheel.

Card Meaning

Everything changes, and you have to accept it. It might feel like we’re being toyed with, it might be brutal or painful, or wonderful and full of fun. But no matter what we do, just like the ticking of a clock we can’t stop change. Instead you should embrace it – appreciate the good when it’s here, know that the bad times will pass, leaving you stronger and with experience that you need to face the next challenge or celebration.

Keywords

Joy, vitality, energy

Artist Interpretation

The Sun’s happy smile beams in the clear blue sky as the monster joyfully entertains his inner child. Riding the flowers on a bumble bee with arms held out to the side and not a care in the world. It is time to play.

Card Meaning

Life is good! The Sun brings light and warmth to the world, and the rays from this blissful, beaming Sun do the same to the little monsters. Joyful faces are everywhere, a bee (the symbol of work and life bringing) carries a monster, who carries a smaller monster, who carries a smaller monster. The gifts received are paid forward, the sun is shining and there are no clouds in the sky. The monster proudly waves a banner he has fought for and won; it’s definitely time to enjoy life!

Keywords

Respite, rest, retreat

Artist Interpretation

Peaceful and recuperating beneath a tree, the little monster meditates to replenish his strength. The atmosphere is calming and relaxing. He is building up energy to continue on with the challenge.

Card Meaning

It’s time to relax! Take a break before getting right back into the battle. You need to make time for yourself, to recharge your mental batteries, so you can keep going without burning out. Take a day off, walk away from your work for an hour or so, or even a few minutes. Even at your busiest, pausing for a few seconds to catch your breath can help you focus, allowing you to return, energized and renewed, to the task at hand.

Keywords

Loss, sadness, mourning

Artist Interpretation

The little monster stands with three cups of spilt milk before him. He is feeling a sense of loss and disappointment. He is so overcome by that feeling that he has not noticed that two cups stll stand behind him full. He is separated from his mushroom home on the other side of the river. If he can emotionally recover from his loss and turn his pessimistic attitude into an optimistic outlook, he will find the bridge provided for him to cross in order to return back to his place of safety and comfort.

Card Meaning

Currently, life is rough, with loss dragging you into despair. But not all hope is gone, cups still stand full, if only you can see them. You can choose how you let this affect you – either you can wallow in the pain, or let the tears wash it away and help you heal.

Standing on the seashore he listens to the sounds of the crashing waves and feels the soft sand at his feet. As he lifts his cup for a toast a magical snaggletooth fish appears very unexpectedly with a message for him!

Go out and play! The Page is spontaneous, enjoying the feeling of sand between his toes, generally loving life, and calling you to look at the world through the eyes of a child.

This is a time to be inspired, to be open to new emotional experiences and even to new relationships.
