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."

The Fullness of the Moment

From the World Spirit, the Universe (World):
This full-bodied, blue Cosmic Mother reminds me of the Hindu Trimurti: Brahma the creator, Vishnu the maintainer or preserver and Shiva the destroyer or transformer. The Universe is the point of wholeness and harmony; whatever has been the focus of effort has now been completed. Yet her dance reminds me that she will eventually step out of the doorway the serpent forms. What has been will no longer be, and creation will begin anew. But for now, I'll celebrate the fullness of the moment with her.

From the Mystic Glyphs deck comes "Judgement:"
Rogers clarifies this glyph in her book, explaining it means we should trust our own judgment. The circle on the outside is a boundary to keep out the comments of others who may (sometimes unintentionally) cause us to question our decisions. With me, it's not just others but my inner critic who wants to nitpick everything. Anyone who's ever done anything creative will recognize that tendency to crave perfection instead of accepting what has been finished as a job well done. I think instead of succumbing to that kind of thinking, I'll aim a well placed kick at that perfectionist as I dance along with the Universe.

  1. Good for you! Shake that booty! I am not up for it yet but I feel better than yesterday after been scolded severely by my inner critic
    I will just take an Art Break and focus more on my writing which it seems my IC doesn't find interesting at all

    1. There you go - sneak in the back door while the critic isn't looking (and I won't tell that writing is a form of art). :D
