I'm taking you along with me as I create a new card deck for myself. I will create it with an American Indian theme as I did once before. [What is Lenormand?](https://whaleshares.io/tarottuesday/@viking-ventures/tarot-tuesday-lenormand-introduction) - check out my previous article.

# Card 23 - MOSQUITO

This one caused me considerable trouble. The original card was the MICE - with their pest and disease connotations. My problems with coming up with a new card was rather simple. Before tribes became agrarian, mice did not represent the same kind of problem as they caused in Europe (where Lenormand was developed.) Rather, mice were seen as yet another part of the food web, occupying a place - and even being seen as messengers.

The Mice card is meant to mean:
* Little worries, especially the kind that gnaw at you.
* Being under time pressure, stress
* Loss and little problems that can create large headaches.
* Maybe even loss of these little worries (like pounds)
By and large, it is a negative card. So, this card was going to have to change!

I searched for information on tribal symbology and mythology, but could find nothing with this negative meaning - I'm getting the impression that negative aspects of personality are not personified in tribal thinking the way those of us with a more European background do.

So, I thought more about the things which would have caused problems way back... no matter which tribe we are talking about. I kept coming back to the mosquito - a pesky insect which causes lots of little problems (itchy welts) and even disease. I think this is about as close to the original card that I could come.

For more information on what this card means, check out [Lenormand1's](https://www.lenormand1.com/Lenormand-Card-Meaning-23-Mice.php) interpretation - for combining the Mice with any other card, check out the site: [Learn Lenormand](http://learnlenormand.com/lenormand-MICE-card-combinations/)

* 
For my new card, For my new card, I hit Google Images search, looking for something with CC0 (Creative Commons 0) licensing meaning that I don't always have to remember to credit someone - essential if I were to start doing paid readings with these cards. 

I also had to find out which traditional playing card is associated with this card. So, here is my result:

![23_mosquito_label_lowres.png](https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/viking-ventures/vrUNMncd-23_mosquito_label_lowres.png)
(_Image sources: [Needpix](https://www.needpix.com/photo/38826/native-indian-person-traditional-fishing-fraser-river-british-columbia-canada-water) and [PublicDomainVectors](https://publicdomainvectors.org/en/free-clipart/Mosquito-image/49700.html)_)

I'm admittedly having trouble continuing to find decent CC0 images of Native American Indians that will work for my cards. Thankfully, I'm 2/3 of the way through my new deck. This one let me down a bit because there is a texture on the picture that doesn't look so nice when enlarged to fit my image, but it does work.

The mosquito was a nice find from a vectors page. It's not great, but it does give a very good idea of the care that I'm portraying.

(Now to get on to the next image which is also going to be a tricky one...)

Note: Readings are entertainment only (legally). You are in charge of your own destiny.
