I wanted to show you what happens when you lay the magician transparently over the 8 of Wands. I love that the lions head is where the magicians heart is. It has pretty much turned into the original vision I had of it except there was a cresting wave. I couldn’t seem to work it in explicitly but I think the cover over the sleeper, which is going to be blue, is it. Both of them are Nuit/Nut I think.
I drew a card for this card the other day, don’t remember if I mentioned it or not. It was XXI The World.
I didn’t know what it meant for, oh, about 2 seconds. Then I recognized her as the sleeper, but totally awake and empowered, mature. What an odd paradox that seems to me! I just had a thought – what if the sleeper resides in the world of the Major Arcana and the Lion in the Minor? Resides isn’t a great word for that, maybe donimates consciousness. Or is in power.
Anyway, I will be painting the 8 of Wands over the next few days. As soon as I have something interesting to show I will.
