I use tarot and oracle cards as a tool for self-inventory. Rather than divining the future, they are a way for me to look more deeply at the "now."

Combining and Creating

From the PetraK Tarot, the Lovers:
Maybe it is just me wishing for Spring to arrive, but I couldn't help thinking about the pollination of plants when I saw this painting. Clearly it is about a union of opposites, but not two incomplete halves used to make a whole. Imagine a yummy cake layer that you place on another to make a cake. If one layer was missing a huge chunk, it would not be suitable to add to the other layer. So these two aren't looking for someone or something to complete them, they are combining to create something lovely and beneficial together.

From the AstroDice comes the roll "Pluto-Aries- 2:"
The planet Pluto was named for the god of the Underworld, so it was not a surprise to learn this die implied something was being razed to the ground in order to regenerate something new. Behind this process is Aries, the assertive, ambitious ram that keeps things moving and on target. What is all this "out with the old, in with the new" about? According to the 2nd House, it deals with finances and possessions. This reading finally clicked when I saw the 2nd House. My mom has been after me to spruce up my house (I haven't done any interior painting or bought anything new in about 25 years). She came for a visit this past Friday and bought a new set of curtains and curtain rod for me as an early birthday present. Once I put them up, I realized how such even a small change made things not only look better but also cozier. So slowly but surely I will be replacing the old with the new.

  1. But until then, you can combine the old with the new to create a wonderful home.
    The dice made me think of spring cleaning (which I am not a huge fan of) and tidying up our garden after the storms.

    1. Funny that you mention spring cleaning, because that is what I'm doing as I change things a bit. But as you said, I definitely won't be doing it all at once!

  2. Funny how new eyes can see what we miss. Overgrown shrubs at the front of a house is something, as a former realtor, I always notice. Don't get in too big a hurry though. We haven't had any furniture in the front room since a friend moved out back around 1996. I was always going to get to it...but if I had where would mothers things be? :)

    1. I think her concern isn't just to get some "new and nice looking" but to replace the glued-together, falling apart, worn-out stuff (of which we have quite a bit). :D That spare room worked out great for you!

  3. Oh, that Lovers card is stunning! I love the idea of adding to the old, kicking out a few bits, and making your home feel beautiful and new, even without having to change everything. Good luck with the spring cleaning! :)
