In this Page of Wands we see another horned creature, with a strange, downward-curving nose and small, straight horns. I'm guessing it's an animal from the African sub-continent, but I could be way off. And the LWB is as useful in this as blowing bubbles... Anyway, our horned friend has a blue hat and cloak, a jaunty yellow feather in his cap, and a greenish tunic with salamanders on it. He holds a wand firmly in both hands, and stands in a desert landscape, witha mountain range behind him.
I have to say, it's not a very fiery card. Were it not for the salamanders, I'd say there was no hint of the associated element at all. And I still don't get why horned creatures were chosen for the suit, though I guess it's better than birds for the earthy suit of Pentacles! Perhaps because horned animals tend to be more aggressive, willing to butt heads with each other - so a bit of that dynamic wands energy :) Yeah, I'll go with that. If you have any other ideas, please do comment!
This card's energy feels youthful and still a little uncertain - he's gripping that wand rather tightly. Still, I see determination in him, as well as a desire to explore the world. The image suggests a cheerful outlook, but also a long path still to travel.
I could do with some of that exploratory energy today, as I want to get down to some research for the Celtic Lenormand. I haven't been doing a card a day recently, with Big Boy on holiday and then ill, and I need to get my enthusiasm back for that and more! It's definitely a long path, but if I can find the playfulness to make a start...
I am grateful for the internet, boon of all research projects.
