The Fat Inkeeper Worm card represents a net. Creating a net and casting it wide allows to capture many small things at once that may have even avoided capture all together without it. What these small things are depends on the subject of the reading. Ideas? Opportunities? Whatever it is, it may be time to set a net out to catch them up. While the members of this phylum bear a distinct resemblance to a certain portion of human anatomy, their behavior is far more fascinating than a simple phallic comparison. In order to feed, the worm produces a mucus 'net' in its den, filtering water through it, and then consuming it when it is full of prey. It is a highly efficient predator in this way.
