Tarotka Minor Arcana: Master of Stars

Master of Stars/King of Wands
I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

The Master of Stars is associated with maturity, dynamism, Air and Fire. Air is the element of intellect and authority, Fire the element of action and energy. So this is the Master of Stars: Intelligent, Ambitious, and most of all, Powerful. The Master of Stars is strong and motivated, but he’s also a man of vision. His forte is setting forth and changing the world to match his ideals – he is a daring entrepreneur, taking bold action when needed to achieve his goals. This can be the sign of a self-made man, someone who seized his power through his own actions. Fire is also the element of inspiration, and so this man can represent a bold new world order that he’s trying to bring about. Though he has both maturity and authority, he’s not a sign of stability like the other Master cards – he is closer to a revolutionary. If he’s on the wrong side of an argument, he can cause a lot of damage, but if he’s on the right side, he can bring the world into a bright new future. But one thing that can never be said of him is that he walks away from problems, whatever they are.

Inverse
This is a power-hungry megalomaniac, pure and simple. He has a hunger inside him that can never be filled, and he’ll consume everyone in his path in his attempt to fill it. All of his intellect and ambition are laid upon the grand altar of himself, and he only cares about his own vision – usually one with him at the top. He is driven by his desires, hooked on the adrenaline of victory, temperamental and demanding. He often has his sights set on goals he cannot reach, which leads him continually to disappointment. This doesn’t stop him from trying again and again, burning everything in his path. Even if he succeeds, nothing will ever be enough. Happiness, for this man, must be taken – and he will take it.
