The choice of a salamander in magical symbology is no coincidence, given its remarkable transformation from a creature of water to a creature of land. Fire elementals were called salamanders. According to Monstropedia http://www.monstropedia.org/index.php?title=Salamander, “The salamander represents those who pass through the fires of passion and of this world without stain…. The salamander is also used to symbolize the flames, which it passes through, and so is a symbol of fire, temptation, and burning desire.”
The LWB for this deck gives the card’s meaning as “A new beginning, a new project, offer for employment, initiative”. Aces generally mean action and beginnings and the association with the element of fire leads us to new beginnings in creative endeavors or romantic relationships.
I’m planning to start writing a new story. What are you being driven to do?
