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.

It’s time to reconnect spiritually.
- Keywords: Wounded, Boredom, Adversity, or Impracticality.
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?
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.
