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."

Staying On Your Toes

From the Art of Life Tarot, the Two of Pentacles; from the Tao Oracle, "Abundance:"
          Ballet seems such an appropriate subject for the Two of Pentacles with its requirement of grace, strength, flexibility and technique. Being aware of one's body, of how weight needs to be balanced and muscles engaged, reflects the mindfulness needed to manage my time, energy, money and health. Distraction can tip me too far, causing missteps and stumbles. Today will be a busy one; though the sun hasn't even risen, I feel that familiar anxiety of not having enough time to get everything done. Yet the Tao card of Abundance shows up to remind me I don't have less than anyone else. But how I use it can make it appear otherwise. The bitter cold tempts me to drag my feet and whispers how nice it would be to stay snug in my bathrobe. I would like to just putter about, surf the internet and not do much of anything that requires effort. But those distractions will waste the abundance of time I have today, a day when I need to stay in the flow of movement.


  1. After only three days of "Making Room" I notice how much time I have wasted on the internet. Not the blogging, commenting,watching something really interesting on YouTube or something like that but the endless mindless clicking, getting lost on the internet can be so numbing. Times flies by without noticing.
    It is hard to let go of this digital drug, but certainly worth it.

    1. It is a very addictive "digital drug" indeed!
