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."

Keep the Fire in Bounds

From the Nicoletta Ceccoli Tarot, the Three of Wands; from the Sacred Geometry Oracle, the "Tetrahedron:"
       With the Ace of Wands there is inspiration, and with the Two comes a choice to act on it. By the time the Three appears, following the passion has produced some results. The beautiful spiral of roses this fairy-like girl has created implies the pursuit of her goal has generated something positive. But it has also attracted the interest of a fox in the background, whose motives are questionable. I think her vantage point in the tree is a good one; from there she can keep an eye on her progress as well as any problems that might pop up.
       The tetrahedron is the first and simplest three-dimensional figure in sacred geometry. Formed from four equilateral triangles, it is associated with the element of fire. When I have a pet project or an objective I'm aiming for, there is a lot of fiery energy involved. That slow burn can keep things moving in the right direction. But if someone or something causes things to go off track, I might be tempted to use that fire in an aggressive way that is not beneficial. "Protect and correct" is a much better use of my energy than launching an attack. I'm going to need that fire and shouldn't waste it.

  1. If you weren't saying I wouldn't have a clue which cards these were supposed to represent. Is the whole deck that way?

    1. Heehee, they all are pretty much this way. :) There is definitely some "pondering" time needed.

  2. I like the "pondering invitation" of these cards.
    Protect and correct is a wise slogan.
    For me it also feels like she is resting and reassessing her next move. I would love to sit there for a while :)

    1. I used to "tree sit" as a child when life was chaotic. There are times as an adult that I'd like to do the same thing (but I worry about breaking something, lol).

  3. Hmm, I wonder if she's not as innocent as she seems. Perhaps part of her plan is to entice that fox in… Maybe she wants a fox fur stole ;)

    1. Heehee, if that's the case, then I labeled the wrong one "cunning and sly!" :)
