I use tarot and oracle cards as tools for reflection and contemplation. Rather than divining the future, they are a way for me to look more deeply at the "now."

The Future and Past Moves to the Present

From the Norse Tarot, the Ace of Swords:
The sword in this Ace speaks volumes with its position. Instead of being pointed upward like an antenna gathering information, it is pointing towards the ground. It represents a firm encouragement to stop assimilating facts, looking for more inspiration, and listening to the ideas of others. Now is the time to do something with what I have; it is time to ground the potential available and turn it into a reality.

From the Wolf Pack comes "The Past:"
I like Petro's use of an old, western ghost town to represent the past. Very fitting since only "ghosts" live in that dream world. I may wander around replaying and rehashing old conversations or incidents, but nothing will change what has happened. I'd do better to learn from my mistakes and move on, focusing on what is in my world today.


  1. That Ace of Swords is one of the most difficult cards for me... Love the Wolf Pack though, must check whether it's available in mother Russia ;)

    1. The wolf deck is called a "tarot" by the publisher, but it truly is an oracle only (there are keywords and phrases on the top of each card). You can easily find inexpensive decks on Ebay if you're interested. :D
