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."

Rest Rather than React

From the Tarot of the Hidden Realm, the Moon; from the Heart of Faerie Oracle, the "Blessing:"
Down on all fours with antlers sprouting from her head, this fairy has morphed into her untamed animal side. She's in survival mode, so she's relying purely on instincts to guide her. This place in her head feels one step shy of insanity. Nothing is clear, yet the emotional surge she's feeling makes everything seem dangerously important. The compass-like symbol she's drawn in the earth to get her bearings only makes her swirling thoughts more confusing. She needs a safe haven to wait out the dark night, a quiet corner where she can rest instead of react.
The Blessing card is an encouragement to start the day with gratitude. Though there might be many things going on that are overwhelming and look dire, there are small shafts of light shining in the cracks. Focusing on what is right rather than all that is wrong will be more conducive to producing solutions.


  1. Hope you found the gratitude practice a help in dealing with life's vagaries. That Moon card really is interesting!

    1. I can relate to this Moon card, lol! And gratitude is like chocolate - it helps just about anything. :)
