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."

Making a Splash

From the PetraK Tarot, the Three of Wands; from the Astrodice, "Mars/Gemini/6th House:"
          These three staffs have been firmly planted into a hole together. There appears to be water splashing outward, indicating an impact has been made. The Thoth tradition assigns this card the keyword "virtue," because there is responsibility behind the actions. I'd call them the three Cees. First is clarity: knowing what it is I want to do, understanding what I am capable of doing and having a plan for doing it. Second is confidence: a belief in my abilities that perseveres even when met with challenges. And finally is cooperative coordination: being willing to reach out and work with others who can help me achieve my objective.
          The roll of the Astrodice combines the fiery courage of Mars with the restless versatility of Gemini. I can see Mars working well with the first two cees, having the passion to focus clearly and stay the course. Gemini is flexible enough to figure out an alternate path if an obstacle appears and can bend enough to accommodate working well with others. But this planet and sign are like having a roomful of young children - lots of energy that needs to be carefully channeled. The 3rd House represents the daily routine as well as health. At least a loose schedule is going to be needed to provide some structure, including slots for taking care of basic needs.


  1. I like the concept of the three C's a lot, so I am going to copy that one in my Tarot journal

    1. Thank you, Ellen; I never know what will flow out of my brain in the early morning, lol. Glad today's stream of ideas was useful!

    1. The lwb that comes with it is very simple and short, which makes it easy to use and less daunting for me. Just add the characteristics of the three, stir, and bake. :)
