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."

Celebrate Change

From the World Spirit Tarot, the Ten of Cups:
There's a party goin' on right here
A celebration to last throughout the years
So bring your good times and your laughter too
We're gonna celebrate your party with you
~ Kool & the Gang
I just can't help it - whenever I see a Ten of Cups card like this one, the song Celebration automatically runs through my head. I wonder if the occasion portrayed here is a rite of passage, a festival, or just a family wanting to have some good old-fashioned fun. It reminds me I don't need to wait for something big to happen before I shake my groove thing. If I will look through eyes of gratitude, I'll find even the small stuff gives me a reason to party. In the words of Kool and the Gang, "Celebrate good times, come on!"

The card drawn from the Mystic Glyphs today is "Moon Phases:"
Rogers explains this glyph means there is a change or evolution within me, and that I shouldn't let my fear keep me from embracing it. I have felt this phase occurring on several levels, physically and spiritually. The old me would grip hard to try and keep things as they are, but the Ten of Cups suggests I attempt to see the good in these changes. Besides, once I get used to them, I'll probably not want to change them either! 


  1. Aren't we all creatures of habit :)
    I prefer gradual changes. Looking backwards they always seem to have happened faster. Some life changes were good some were bad, but I am content with most of the changes within myself

    1. I like to think of myself as not a person of routine and habit, but that idea quickly gets dunked when the unexpected shows up! :D
