The Card: Our red-robed Hero is standing on a cliff, overlooking the sea, holding 1 out of three wands. His garments are plain. Three ships are heading out to sea, which is coloured golden by the reflection of the sky.
Interpretation: It looks like he is ready for a journey and longing to somewhere, but which journey ?. Also one of his arms seems to be armour clad. Does he still have an element of strife in him ?, ready to go out and find a 'war' ?. No !, the wands are now planted firmly in the cliff, and he is standing quite calmly, viewing the ships departure, indicating that the time for 'outer' journeys has passed for the moment. He is ready to participate in life, seeking inner fulfilment.
And funnily by stopping he has reached the beginning of the greatest expanse, the inner universe, which is as the sea in front of him, only it's immaterial.
Prediction: I have reached a point where it's no longer my greatest desire to roam the world, or participate in all the 'agitation' out there. From this point I will stay 'home by the fire' so to speak. I have a certain experience of the 'affairs' of the world, which is enough. Perhaps I will still long to go somewhere, but I am changing. I observe, having separated from the strongest of impulses. My attention now goes inwards, there I will find the new.
Key elements: Experience, settling, awareness in the midst of anything, separation from impulse, calmer and stronger than before.
