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."

Soft Watchfulness

From the Rosetta Tarot, the Eight of Disks; from the Ascension to Paradise, the Chat:
          The Eight of Disks signifies a period of development, and thus is given the keyword 'Prudence.' This entails caution and care taken in practical concerns and the management of  resources (time, energy, health and finances). That mother owl needs to protect all those eggs, but at some point she's going to have to feed herself too. No extreme measures are needed, just a constant watchfulness and attention before and as each action is taken. Yet the rose-breasted Chat pipes up to say there is one area where prudence isn't necessary - in the domain of compassion. Unconditional love and an open heart will soften any rigidness of this Eight of Disks.

  1. All my good thoughts are with you.

  2. Gentle hugs and lots of love for you my dear and for your family

  3. (((((Soulsis))))) My heart goes out to all of you. xo

  4. Ah dear, it doesn't matter if you know someone is going to die, when it comes it's a blow. I like the old saying "Body at rest, spirit free" in obituaries. It seems like that, all the trouble and pain and sickness and confusion have gone for her now. You can now remember all the bright points of her life.

    My mother-in-law died last year and I still get weepy when I hear the song "Our House" by Madness, because it reminds me so much of her.

    All the Mothers!!!

  5. What a lift to my heart it was to end this long day of plans, errands and phone calls and see such kind comments from friends old and new. Hugs, love and much thanks to all of you: (((Carolyn, Sharyn, Ellen, Carole and Judy))).
