37 - Joker of Spring
Playing Card Symbol Interpretation
In a card game, he can replace any card. Here, he will enhance the cards around it.
Artists Personal Symbol
The Joker is in the process of doing a handstand, he can turn anything upside-down.
On a lusciously green leaf, we see a bug in the sun. His big antennas could be the horns of the springtime zodiac signs.
Taken alone, this Joker means new beginnings, growth potential, energy, renewal after periods of sleep or hibernation, but, on the other hand, the bug being a rather unpleasant bug, he can also bug (puns intended) - meaning plans might take a surprising turn. Follow the flow rather than being stubborn! He can give an energy boost to other cards, but he also can alter the meanings / directions of the surrounding cards. He'll support the cards directly above him and push on the cards to his right in the spread; but he might block those under him or to his left...
New Growth, Flowering, Potential, Surprise.

Simone Roeder, 38, from Luxembourg, is a passionate photographer, likes all kinds of cards for collection and reading. She is currently combining her talents to create an oracle deck, the finishing of which unfortunately will have to be delayed, due to the non-existent winter, to next spring (and hopefully not longer!)
