Meet the Cards: Elder of Fire

  • Correspond to the Sixes.

  • Serve as administer or conserver.

What I See:

Gaian-Tarot-Elder-FireThere is so much going on in this image. We have the flowers that look like flames. There are sculls and bottles of mysterious things. We see pictures sitting on the table behind her, almost like an altar. And she appears to be holding burning incense or something. First thought? Witch. Voodoo priestess. But maybe she’s just celebrating the Day of the Dead. She could be a shaman or healer too. I definitely get a sense of wisdom. And challenge. It feels like she’s looking right into my soul.

General Fire element/Wands suit:

Please refer back to the Ace of Fire

Light (upright) Reading:

Plots:

Perhaps a Day of the Dead or All Saints celebration? How about a roadside tribute to a victim? Maybe holding a vigil?

A fire ceremony? Maybe a Voodoo or Wicca tale. Perhaps a tarot reader? Perhaps she is the gateway to another plane.

With Wands centering on spiritual and career matters, perhaps a charismatic leader? An entrepreneur? Or maybe hard work/study?

Or explore the flip side, what about a power hungry leader or CEO?

  • Elder Themes: Competence, Authority, Respect, Decision Making, Mastery, Leadership, or Prowess.

In Tarot for Writers, Corrine Kenner describes the King of Wands as “fair, noble, just, courageous, and romantic.” She goes on to say he has a good sense of humor and likes to play Devil’s Advocate. Perhaps a story about justice or defending honor or practical jokes or arguing for the sake of argument?

Meet the Cards: Guardian of Fire

What I See:

Gaian-Tarot-Guardian-FireOne of the beautiful things about this deck is the alternating of male and female images. Here we have a man on a typically female card, and he’s far from a feminine figure. He’s tending the fire, the man behind the scenes of the Fire Festival or the beach party bonfire. According to the book, the Bobcat silently and powerfully channels the life force. The way the cat is watching him, I get the feeling it’s his familiar. I imagine there are dancers, or storytellers, just out of the frame waiting.

General Fire element/Wands suit:

Please refer back to the Ace of Fire

Light (upright) Reading:

You knew your own worth.

  • Keywords: Ambition, Popularity, Passion, Vivacity, or Independence.

Shadow (upside down or reverse) Reading:

Beware of being jealous of others’ success.

  • Keywords: Selfishness, Thoughtlessness, Self-Centered, Ruthlessness, or Jealousy.

Plots:

Perhaps a tale centering around a campfire, a bonfire, a fire festival, a reunion. Perhaps a group of friends celebrating summer break? Or maybe an elder telling stories?

How about a story from the cat’s point-of-view? A witch’s familiar. A spirit guide.

Maybe your focus is on the steamy combination of water and fire, an opposites attract story? Or maybe the flash of love at first sight?

  • Guardian Themes: Understanding, Persuasion, Communication, Teaching, Nurturing, Emotional Awareness, Creativity, Intuition, or Leadership.

This is one card where the Gaian book and Tarot for Writers by Corrine Kenner differ. The Gaian talks about a behind the scenes, quite strength, type of person, whereas Kenner talks about an outgoing, center of attention, person. Perhaps your MC struggles with a similar duality? Even the enneagram is split. Perhaps a shifter tale? What about living a lie or hidden life? Maybe torn between worlds?

Characters:

“I spark creativity in others while tending my own creative flame.” ~Joanna Powell Colbert

  • Suit Archetype/Feudal Class: Peasant or Servant Class.

MBTI: INTJ (Introverted Intuitive Thinking Judging)

The nine-point personality enneagram can also be useful for character building.

Guardians/Queens are an equal mix of E4: Tragic Romantic, Individualist, and/or Connoisseur

  • Self Image — I am different
  • Passion — Envy
  • Virtue — Equanimity
  • Narcissistic Trap — Authenticity
  • Avoids — Ordinariness
  • Speaking Style — Lyrical or Lamenting

E4 people are relationship oriented. They are concerned with what others think of them, image and prestige. They see themselves as being for others and often believe they know what’s best. They dislike being alone and may feel sad or inadequate.

and E5: Observer, Investigator, and/or Sage

  • Self Image — I see through
  • Passion — Greed
  • Virtue — Detachment
  • Narcissistic Trap — Knowledge
  • Avoids — Emptiness
  • Speaking Style — Explaining or Systematizing

E5 people are ruled by their head. They need to understand the pattern of events, where all the pieces fit in the puzzle of life, and are often detached from their emotions. Their objectivity may hide feelings of isolation or confusion.

You will have to decide which fits your character best.

Additionally, look up one of the Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) for personality traits.

  • Careers: Entrepreneur, Dentist, Entertainer, Hairstylist, Make-up Artist, Producer, Ophthalmologist, Neurologist, Performer, and Pro-Athlete.

Meet the Cards: Explorer of Fire

What I See:Gaian-Tarot-Explorer-Fire

Fire dance. I’m drawn to this card, though the mask is kinda creepy. The fire is moving so fast as to appear continuous, almost like a ribbon. She has to have practiced, a lot. I get a sense of daring. She’s focused and, somehow, making a very dangerous art form look graceful. And sensual. I imagine there is a feeling of being in the eye of a storm with the flames whooshing around her.

Perhaps, a storm or being caught in the eye of a hurricane/tornado?

How about a pyromaniac? A forest fire? Maybe you see solar flares. Perhaps a tale of survival? Getting burned and starting over? Or maybe, she is the heart of a star.

  • Explorer Themes: Energy, Passion, Motion Towards Goal, Intention, Focus, Single-mindedness, Idealism, Vitality, or Lust for Life.

Characters:

“I dare to be transformed by the flames of passion and creativity.” ~Joanna Powell Colbert

Meet the Cards: Child of Fire

What I See:

Gaian-Tarot-Child-FireWhile I love the enthusiasm I see in the boy’s face I have to say this image kinda freaks me out. He too close to those flames! I worry of a future pyromaniac. On the other hand, I imagine campfires and singing, or telling stories, and spending time with family/friends.

Fire is the spiritual element and people have been gazing into fires for visions since humans discovered it! Fire speaks to spontaneity. I think of “dancing like no one is watching.”

General Fire element/Wands suit:

Please refer back to the Ace of Fire

Light (upright) Reading:

You are eager to try something new.

Perhaps a burning desire, whether following a dream or chasing after a romance. What about a love at first sight tale? Or a MC who is quick to anger?

How about a theology student? A shaman’s apprentice? Or a spiritual messenger? Perhaps a vision quest.

What about the cat? Maybe a story around an animal warming themselves by the fire.

  • Child Themes: Curiosity, Hope, Innocence, Opening, Trust, Beginnings, Novelty, Growth, Study, or Apprenticeship.

Characters:

“I jump at new opportunities.” ~Joanna Powell Colbert

Meet the Cards: Ten of Fire

Generally, all Tens:

  • Express transition of their suit, or element.
  • Reflect the themes and wisdom of the Wheel of Fortune.
  • Symbolize an ending, and a beginning.
  • Can be any point of death and rebirth, the Ordeal, the Dark Moment, or All is Lost; the character’s re-dedication to the change in their arc; that point in which the character has everything to lose; or the final push toward the end.
  • Are the “dark night of the soul” mentioned in the Numbers in Tarot post.
  • For additional info on Tens check out Tarot Notes Take a Number series on tens.

What I See:

Gaian-Tarot-Ten-FireFire can be so frightening. Yet it is often just what nature needs to reestablish itself. I think of the Phoenix. I also get a sense of chaos. The wind is whipping the flames higher and further afield. I imagine the forest animals are running, staying just ahead of the flames. The smoky clouds feel a bit oppressive. I think of crawling along the floor under a smoke cover to safety. Are the firefighters on the scene? Was the fire set on purpose? Or is this a naturally occurring fire?

General Fire element/Wands suit:

Please refer back to the Ace of Fire

Light (upright) Reading:

Seedlings grow up from the ashes.

  • Keywords: Perseverance, Patience, or Home Stretch.

Shadow (upside down or reverse) Reading:

Remember to trust the cycle.

  • Keywords: Overload, Pressure, Encumbered, or Onerous Burdens.

Plots:

A fire. A forest fire. Firefighters, firemen. Perhaps, a story focused on running for safety, whether you use the fire or some other danger?

The smoke could be exhaust, perhaps a landing ship started the fire? What if the fire is a result of weaponry?

How about a retelling of the Phoenix myth? Maybe, that isn’t a fire…

  • Ten Themes: Transition, Transformation, or Endings and Beginnings.

Typically, the card depicts a laborer carrying a load of ten wands. The wands aren’t laying neatly but are tangled. Perhaps, a theme of good intentions going awry?

Characters:

Release what is done and make way for what is to come.

  • Suit Archetype/Feudal Class: Peasant or Servant Class.

The nine-point personality enneagram can also be useful for character building.

All Tens are E1: Perfectionist and/or Reformer

  • Self Image — I am right
  • Passion — Anger
  • Virtue — Serenity
  • Narcissistic Trap — Perfection
  • Avoids — Vexation
  • Speaking Style — Teaching or Moralizing

Meet the Cards: Nine of Fire

Gaian-Tarot-Nine-Fire

What I See:

My first thoughts are of peace and power. Having just talked about chakras, my eye is drawn to that part of the image. I see him drawing power from Mother Earth up through his chakras to burst back into nature. Yet, there’s also a sense of an aura in the glow around him, speaking to the Fire element. The cave, a sacred one according to the book, gives us the Earth element and grounds him. Renewal.

General Fire element/Wands suit:

Please refer back to the Ace of Fire

Light (upright) Reading:

You are at peace with yourself and where you are at in your life.

  • Keywords: Fortification, Self-Protection, Discipline, or Determined.

Shadow (upside down or reverse) Reading:

It’s time to reconnect spiritually.

  • Keywords: Wounded, Boredom, Adversity, or Impracticality.

Plots:

An eastern themed story? A story exploring yoga, health, healing, meditation, and/or chakras? A spiritual quest?

That aura looks like a transporter devise, perhaps an alien? A god? Ascension to a higher plane of existence? Maybe some kind of power transfer?

The Crown Chakra looks like an actual crown, perhaps royalty?

How about some steampunk? Maybe the chakras are gears?

  • Nine Themes: Self-mastery, Solitude, Wisdom, Experience, or Completion.

Typically, this card shows a warrior type man with wands at his back. A wounded warrior? A live to fight another day theme? A last stand?

Characters:

A being of light and of flesh.

  • Suit Archetype/Feudal Class: Peasant or Servant Class.

Additionally, look up one of the Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) for personality traits.

For more information on the Nines in general, please refer back to the Nine of Air.

Image: Gaian Tarot by Joanna Powell Colbert from Llewellyn Worldwide

Meet the Cards: Eight of Fire

Gaian-Tarot-Eight-Fire

What I See:

This card is similar to the traditional one. I think of wishing on stars, looking for the first star in the night sky. There’s a feeling of distance. The horizon looks to be a long way away. I’m struck by a sense of vastness. I have a visual of Lee Ann Womack’s I Hope You Dance — sure, she was talking about the ocean, but I think the same applies with a meteor shower. Meteors certainly speak to the Fire element. There’s a sense of fleeting. A fleeting moment. A fleeting opportunity. A fleeting emotion. A sense of embracing the spectacular.

General Fire element/Wands suit:

Please refer back to the Ace of Fire

Light (upright) Reading:

Strike when the iron, or inspiration, is hot.

  • Keywords: Excitement, Movement, Travel, or Communication.

Shadow (upside down or reverse) Reading:

Beware of being resistant to change.

  • Keywords: Impulsiveness, Hysteria, Discord, or Thoughtlessness.

Plots:

A nature story? How about camping and sleeping under the night sky? Wishing on a star?

A space story? Perhaps those are escape pods landing on an alien planet? Or are they aliens landing on Earth?

Maybe fireworks?

It almost looks like the flaming tips of arrows. A war? A siege? Perhaps Cupid’s arrows, how about a romance?

  • Eight Themes: Taking Action, Energy, Self-directed Movement, Empowerment, or Transforming Vision into Reality.

According to Tarot for Writers by Corrine Kenner the Eight of Wands is “associated with long-distance travel and messages.” What about a long-distance romance? A chat-room affair?

Characters:

Filled with awe and wonder.

  • Suit Archetype/Feudal Class: Peasant or Servant Class.

Additionally, look up one of the Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) for personality traits.

For more information on the Eights in general, please refer back to the Eight of Earth.

Meet the Cards: Seven of Fire

What I See:

Gaian-Tarot-Seven-FireThere’s something rather sexy about a lady blacksmith to me. It’s a skill set more suited to a man’s strength yet there’s an element of artistry, too. I wonder if she followed in a parent’s footsteps or actively sought out the career. She has physical strength to work with iron. She has patience. She must have determination to see her project through to the end.

General Fire element/Wands suit:

Please refer back to the Ace of Fire

Light (upright) Reading:

“Strike while the iron is hot.”

  • Keywords: Taking a Stand, Courage, Bravado, or Self-Confidence.

Shadow (upside down or reverse) Reading:

Beware of letting opportunities pass you by.

  • Keywords: Retreat, Crudeness, Abrasive, or Brashness.

Plots:

She’s wearing an amulet that looks like Thor’s hammer, a retelling of a myth? Perhaps she is Thor’s daughter? How about exploring her career choice…did she follow in a parent’s footsteps or actively pursue it? Maybe, she’s just one of a tribe of Amazon women?

There’s a primitive feel to the setting, perhaps your story centers around a people who’ve returned to an earlier time? The tattoos on her arms makes me think of warriors — a struggle for land? Position?

  • Seven Themes: Initiation, Focus, Inner Work, Setting Intentions, or Self-awareness.

Typically, this card shows a man on a hill with six wands in front of him while he holds the seventh as if to defend himself. How about a bravery theme? Being outnumbered?

Characters:

You have the strength to transform your life.

  • Suit Archetype/Feudal Class: Peasant or Servant Class.

Additionally, look up one of the Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) for personality traits.

For more information on the Sevens in general, please refer back to the Seven of Water.

Meet the Cards: Six of Fire

Generally, all Sixes:

  • Express community and happy experience of their suit, or element.
  • Reflect the themes and wisdom of The Lovers.
  • Symbolize reciprocity.
  • Can represent a false victory or lull before the storm in your story; the “Approach to Inmost Cave” portion of the Hero’s Journey (The Writers Journey by Christopher Vogler), or the “Reward”; it could be your mid-point, turning your story on its ear; or the preparing step of your character’s arc.
  • Are the resolution of the second set of mini-dramas mentioned in the Numbers in Tarot post.
  • For additional info on Sixes check out Tarot Notes Take a Number series on Sixes.

What I See:

Just off Samhain, perhaps the delay was divine intervention. This could be any bonfire type celebration. The heat off the flames adding a sheen of sweat to the people around the fire. The beat of the drums building the tempo, thus the dancers, into a frenzied pace.There’s a sense of sexual power.  Or, perhaps, release. That quote about “dance like no one is watching” comes to mind yet also a feeling of anticipation because someone IS watching. I get a sense of fulfillment, happiness, and community when I look at this card. I see all the gorgeous reds and yellows, and oranges I expect to see in a Fire element image.

There’s a crackle and a pop from the fire. The air is dry as I move closer to the fire. My blood is pulsing in time with the drums. I raise my arms and move…

General Fire element/Wands suit:

Please refer back to the Ace of Fire

Light (upright) Reading:

You may be charged by the power of the inner circle.

  • Keywords: Triumph, Acclaim, Appreciation, or Good News.

Shadow (upside down or reverse) Reading:

You may be burned out or feel you have nothing to offer.

  • Keywords: Pomposity, Condescending, Pretense, or Vanity.

Plots:

This card only shows women, perhaps a story about friendship. Or Girls’ Night Out (In). How about a sorority? Maybe they are related. Perhaps six sisters? Or cousins at a family reunion?

Obvious bonfire celebrations come to mind: Celtic, Native American, Aztec, Jewish, or Persian to get you started. Or something as simple as a group of friends having a bonfire on the beach.

  • Six Themes: Reciprocity, Collaboration, Peak Experience, Interaction, or Community.

How about a victory dance? Traditionally, this card shows a man on a horse, riding through a crowd. A victory parade? The conquering hero?

Characters:

Erotic power — release it.

  • Suit Archetype/Feudal Class: Peasant or Servant Class.

The nine-point personality enneagram can also be useful for character building.

All Sixes are E6: Devil’s Advocate, Loyalist, Troubleshooter, and/or Guardian.

  • Self Image — I do my duty
  • Passion — Fear
  • Virtue — Courage
  • Narcissistic Trap — Security
  • Avoids — Deviance
  • Speaking Style — Warning or Limiting

E6 people are ruled by their head. They need to understand the pattern of events, where all the pieces fit in the puzzle of life, and are often detached from their emotions. Their objectivity may hide feelings of isolation or confusion.

Additionally, look up one of the Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) for personality traits.

Meet the Cards: Five of Fire

What I See:

The first thing I notice is that there is no obvious five here. According to the book there are twisted faces in the smoke and fire…I’ll see one, then think I’m imagining it. Perhaps the point. And perhaps there are five. The next thing I’m stuck by is the single man, the fire breather. Either he’s incredibly brave or he’s an adrenaline junkie, LOL. I think of showboating, needing to be the center of attention, dominance, and anger.

Jenny Hansen recently had a post on dealing with anger in which she talks about anger coming from hurt and fear. The book even says, “Rage and anger are often masks for that which we fear.” I see that here. I think of short fuses.

General Fire element/Wands suit:

Please refer back to the Ace of Fire

Light (upright) Reading:

You’re playing with powerful and exciting fire, but beware it can be lethal.

  • Keywords: Competition, Brainstorming, Male Bonding, or Sport.

Shadow (upside down or reverse) Reading:

You may be dealing with burnout, allow the fire to inspire a transformation.

  • Keywords: Sabotage, Stunted Creativity, Conflicts, or Ego Clashes.

Plots:

Perhaps your story focuses on a performer. A circus act or, pardon the term, a freak show act? Perhaps your MC likes living on the edge. Maybe a Native American Fire Ceremony or a Celtic Fire Feast?

There’s a sense of chaos in the flames, perhaps the organized chaos of war. Or a sporting event? Maybe focus on the excitement of danger.

  • Five Themes: Challenge, Crisis, Conflict, Instability, or Change.

If we look at the number, you can focus on the five senses (sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell)? I bet if you put yourself in the fire breather’s audience you can write all five. Or perhaps the elements (fire, water, air, and earth) bound by a high guidance of spirit?

Characters:

“We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder. We always have the choice. ~Dalai Lama

  • Suit Archetype/Feudal Class: Peasant or Servant Class.

Additionally, look up one of the Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) for personality traits.

For more information on the Five in general, please refer back to the Five of Air.
