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."

Meeting in the Middle

From the PetraK Tarot, the Two of Cups:
This card is one of the most softly colored ones in this deck, and I believe it is for a purpose. The cups enter from opposite directions, reminding me of my relationship with my husband. We are such opposites in so many ways. Our adventure at the furniture store yesterday is a perfect example. I'm very aware of color, but my partner could care less if a chair was neon green with pink polka dots. He's only interested in comfort, yet that is an issue we can both agree on. Like the cups above, we have to find a place in the middle, a point of compromise if we want our relationship to stay in tact. The Two of Cups reminds me that unless there is a threat to my integrity or moral values, I need to be flexible enough in my opinions to meet my friends and loved ones halfway.

From the AstroDice comes the roll "Sun - Scorpio - 2:"
The Sun represents a power and vitality of major proportions; add to that Scorpio's intensity, and there are the ingredients for excitement and passion or a train wreck about to happen. The 2nd House deals with resources and the physical world, and together with the tarot card above, is a firm shoulder tap to avoid letting differences of opinion (especially about "stuff") to get blown out of proportion. Relationships are not nearly as easy to replace as those neon green chairs.


  1. "I'll meet you halfway that's better than noway" I had the same kind of differences with my husband but somehow we made it work too. I think it can spice up a relationship when the partners are so different.
    You could easily print this two of cups as a wall decoration. These colors are just awesome

    1. You're right - I think if you and your partner are too alike, you're likely to wind up in a deep rut!

  2. curtains? and now a chair...watch that girl go :)

    1. Y'all will be calling me Martha Stewart before long... :D.
