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."

A Wayshower and a Shiny Sword

From the Ellis Deck, the Three of Rods:
I admit it - I am directionally dysfunctional. I can get turned around in the parking lot of the grocery store. So there are times when I need help, someone to point me in the right direction. This young girl has her plans in action, but has lost sight of the trail. She's found an ally in the fox spirit who will be her wayshower. With the bankruptcy of my mother-in-law's senior residential community, we've become buried in documents and papers filled with legalese. We are relying heavily on others to point out the paths we need to walk in an attempt to secure her investment and home. Lawyers, paralegals and close friends have provided us with information that has been immensely helpful in finding our way through this legal mess.

From the Oracle of Shadows and Light comes the "Fairy of the Highlands:"
When I was young I embraced and enjoyed every fight; as I've grown older, I avoid it if possible. Instead of running toward conflict, I stay back and try not to get involved. But this young fairy tells me there is an appropriate time to pull out that heavy sword - when I need to defend and protect. If I don't speak the truth and put up a strong front, I risk being taken advantage of in this legal battle. One thing I've already learned is there are no stupid questions, only unasked ones. Information and knowledge (the sword) is power.


  1. What a enormous confusing situation this must be. The cards you've drawn are so relevant for you today. I am sorry you have to deal with this mess. I hope you will stay strong enough to hold on to your sword.
    be brave my friend

    1. I am very grateful to have people with much more knowledge and experience than me who are willing to share their information!
