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."

Open Airwaves

From the Gaian Tarot, the Child (Page) of Air; from the Goddess Oracle, "Sphinx:"
          She might only be a child, but the Page of Air/Swords is adept at deep listening. She's like a huge antennae that picks up data from all around her. Some might say she is nosy, but actually she's just curious. Having such a sharp mind, she likes to explore different points of view and study new information. She suggests that I might want to take the cotton out of my ears and stuff it in my mouth for a change. There is something floating about the airwaves that would be beneficial for me to learn.
          The Sphinx of Egypt was built as a guardian, holding the keys to the gates of wisdom. But to pass through her gates, initiates had to meet her challenge. She asks: "If I ask the question that provokes, will you stretch to find the answer?" Whatever she asks, it's not going to make me comfortable. I might be offended or frightened and choose to avoid it altogether. Yet the Child of Air would encourage me to be curious and look beyond my emotional reaction. There is wisdom to be had if I stand my ground and uncover the answer.
