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."

From the PetraK Tarot, the Three of Swords:
The central sword stuck into the cluster of crystals reminds me of a grave marker or memorial. In all the years that I've used tarot cards, the Three of Swords has often come up when I was careless with my words. There have been days when my emotions got ahead of my brain, days when I was trying to be flippant and clever, and days when I didn't listen carefully before opening my mouth. Each time, I hurt someone I cared about. The little flowering vine (looking a little wilted) climbing up the central sword reminds me how fragile we humans can be. It will be a day to pause and think about what I'm going to say before I say it.
The toss of the AstroDice today produced "Moon - Gemini - 7:"
The Moon shows up again, and I feel that it indicates some underlying emotions about to surface. Gemini is full of restless energy and may multi-task to channel it in a variety of directions. The 7th House deals with relationships, particularly close ones such as a spouse, child or close friend. Taken with the Three of Swords above, I can see how becoming flustered with too many projects may cause an emotional outburst on my part, harming someone I care about. Perhaps I should pick up some of that designer duct tape at the office supply store today...
