The Wish

UPRIGHT: optimism, desire to change/ put things in motion

REVERSED: irresponsibility, naivety

THE STORY: The wish is what sets every story in motion. It indicates disequilibrium and dissatisfaction, but it also creates a context in which hope and the promise of a better future, can bloom. The white flame motif, representing desire, is reprised in the Love, Power, Wealth and Immortality cards.
