In this card, we see the young person standing among an arid background. The land has lost its luster and appeal. The boy studies the staff in his hand intently, looking to the greenery on it, for a sense of newness and adventure. This card reminds us to breathe new life into our circumstances. Consciously seek new meaning and purpose and apply it to all of your endeavors. Being curious and goal oriented leads to more passionate living.

Position 2: Your Drive and Motivations
You feel that things in your life are stagnant and you want to breathe new life into your present circumstances or move onto something else entirely.
Position 3: What’s Blocking You – Fears and Subconscious

Position 4: Perspective and Further Awareness – What you Need to See Clearly
