Eight of Wands
by Chronata

Card Meaning
Artistic Media
Artist's Bio


Mercury, the God of Speed, and Messages has entered an archery contest with several other Gods and Goddesses to see who can hit their mark the quickest and most accurately. Of course, up against other well-known archers, such as Cupid and Diana, he doesn't really have much of a chance. So Mercury has hopped aboard his trusty unicycle, and with the propulsion from his winged sandals and hat, is speeding steadily towards the target, while the flaming arrows fly past him.

Card Meaning

This card can indicate a message to do something right NOW, and do not hesitate or procrastinate any longer. Mercury is always good at delivering these messages. This card also stands for a specific goal that you are rapidly approaching. Whether or not you get this goal accomplished is another matter, but speed is the key. With all the amazing amounts of running around and working on the goal, you will find that you have accomplished in a very short time, what some strive for years to accomplish! Swift actions will yield rewards.

Artistic Media

Acrylic on leather.

Artist's Bio

Chronata suffers from a rare ailment known as "Excess Creativity", and if she is not involved in several projects at once, she will explode in a shower of Technicolor sparks. She paints, sculpts, and doodles for her own enjoyment (as well as for several art galleries) and also writes, directs, designs, performs, and creates costumes for an historical theatre company. She also teaches art and tarot to children of all ages, and reads cards, stones; tea leaves and scattered autumn leaves to divine the future. She is currently exhausted.
