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."

Results and Backers

From the Greenwood Tarot, the King of Stones (Pentacles); from the Shaman's Oracle, the "Ancestor of Tribes:"
          This is not a young horse or pony in the Greenwood card but a Przewalski's horse - the only true wild horse left in the world today. Like the King of Stones, this stocky horse is built for survival. The King demands not only that you put your money where your mouth is, but also your time and energy. Dreams aren't worth much to him if they're never brought into reality. Common sense and hard work are the ideals he holds, but he wouldn't object to taking time to enjoy the fruit these standards produce. The Ancestor of Tribes is a reminder of the collective support that can come from family, friends and acquaintances. When trying to make an aspiration or goal into something concrete, it's good to have a group that's got your back. Even if they're not financial benefactors, those who encourage and gently nudge us can make a huge difference in whether we're successful in our endeavors.


  1. This combination also made me think about the inheritance of character and examples of how to live your life by those who came before us. The chance we've been given, the values of the family, all these matters can contribute to the way we are Kings of Pentacles today

    1. I know I have inherited a lot of my values and work ethic from my mom and grandparents!
