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."

Don't Fall Asleep in the Clover

From the Nigel Jackson Tarot, the Seven of Coins; from the Viking Lenormand, Clover:

          Instead of a time to pause, reflect and assess one's progress, Jackson sees the Seven of Coins as a delay caused by laziness or procrastination. My family would laugh until they cried if they could see this version. I am one of those people who likes to have everything done in advance, weeks before the due date. Instead of resting when it's done, I double check for errors and tweak anything that needs it. So I had a really hard time trying to figure out how this fit my pattern. But then I drew the Clover, which generally means good fortune or an opportunity, but it is short-term only. That's when the shoe dropped. I can't stand to poke people I've hired to do something when they don't do it as specified. But if they have a good reason for doing things differently and explain it logically, I'm okay with that. This morning I had an email from a woman about my lojong deck. When I went to Printer Studio for a link, I noticed they had increased the price of the deck by more than $10! I didn't want to get into an ongoing, back-and-forth communication with them, but neither did I want anyone to be overcharged for the deck. The Clover reminded me that things can work out if I'll do my end of the work (contact them) and not put it off. I have done so, and now I'm hoping to hear their explanation soon.


  1. Ouch. I think there is a thread on this at AT. Ferder is so unhappy.

    Printers was such a good option..Ouch

    1. Their cardstock and printing services are excellent, but dang, I would expect at least an email to know what's up with the price increase!

  2. Wasn't there an old saying "sixes and sevens and all good girls go to heaven" Something about that 7 and then the six reminded me of some old ditty

    1. I know Catwoman used in in "Batman Returns:"
      Catwoman: Four... five... Still alive! Six... seven... all good girls go to heaven.
