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."

Attention and Communication

From the Golden Tarot, the Knight of Coins; from the Yantra Deck, "Communication:"
          Here's the guy that's going to get things done. But before he does, he'll check the lay of the land, make notes about resources, and draw up some detailed plans. Only then will the Knight of Coins get started; he doesn't like to rush because he doesn't like mistakes. Black describes him as "responsible, reliable and pragmatic." He's definitely more like the tortoise than the hare - slow but doggedly persistent. The Yantra paired with him is Communication and the words of Don Miguel Ruiz : "Be impeccable with your word. Speak with integrity." To be impeccable means to be precise, which does seem to describe this fellow. Unfortunately, he may get so caught up in his precise planning and doing, he forgets to communicate with the people he's doing the work for or with. Sure it's wonderful he got the whole exterior of the house painted and saved money on the paint, but they might not have wanted it to be a deep shade of purple. Communication can save time and avoid blunders just like paying attention to all those details.


  1. Until very recently my in-laws house was bright lime. Gene was smart and thrifty, but some days it was the other way around.

  2. Communication is crucial. S her in laws are coming tomorrow with a load of SILS's stuff. Nobody knows if they will stay for dinner but I am supposed to make enough food just in case. M suggested my SIL could easily pick up the phone and ask about their plans. Might save a lot of food and energy

    1. Your M is a smart one with a lot of common sense!
