Clow Cards: The Thunder


This can indicate hitting out or making a lot of noise unnecessarily. If this is due to anger or frustration, you must be aware there is a danger somebody could be hit. By all means, have the grumble/moan but be careful of lashing out inappropriately. If somebody is due for a bit of a lightning strike (including yourself) don't over do it. A kick up the arse works, but make sure it doesn't turn into a beating.

Wow! Something has really rattled your cage. Might be time to calm down and just take a look why ~ you may find with hindsight that you have been inappropriate.

Meanings inspired from the anime

The Thunder appears as a very aggressive looking animal. It has the ability to create lightning and electricity and will attack with it. This card could signify you need to get into a more offensive mode or it could be a warning about the possibility of you getting 'attacked'.

It could also refer to a situation with an "electric atmosphere" (a lot of tension).

The Thunder is under the power of the Firey, the Sun and is related to Western magic.
