Becoming familiar with symbols is a great way to start to read cards more intuitively. Laurel wreaths appear in many decks. They symbolize great victory in battle. The battle metaphor is an important one to remember when you see these symbols. That is what the experience has most likely felt like to the querent. Often, the journey toward mental clarity has been hard fought for. If we read this card as a new idea or breakthrough, the wreath reminds us that we might have a battle ahead as we implement our idea or our new knowledge.
