I had the ace wands sitting at the bottom of the deck yesterday. I thought about it and had to laugh. I was making soup and the deck was telling me to turn up the heat under the pot; it was too low (it was true, the soup had fallen below a simmer!)
So the shadow card can be some additional facet that ties the whole thing together, or some hidden aspect regarding the issue at hand.

I think the quintessence (the dictionary says it is the higher essence above the four elements) card might differ in that it is the essence of the question, whereby the shadow is the hidden element (but a necessary one).
