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."

Stop Spinning

This week I'll be using Le Veritable Tarot de Marseille restored and reconstructed by Kris Hadar and published by Mortagne. Lee Bursten's The Marseille Tarot Companion will be a resource for reading this deck. The oracle I'll be using is one I created myself called the Greek Alphabet Runes. AlaskaLaserMaid on Etsy burned the designs on cedar tiles for me. Today's draws are the Two of Coins and Zeta:
          Bursten suggests the Two of Coins means weighing and comparing resources. The two flowers on this card are indeed different - one is a bud about to bloom and the other appears to be a rose hip formed after a successful pollination. An example might be if I have the money to go do some shopping but not the energy or time. Some kind of compromise will have to be made if I want to make sane choices that will lead to constructive results. Zeta is a Greek letter that is used to represent vorticity, the measure of rotation in fluid or air. This spinning motion can be observed in such things as whirlpools or tornadoes. I had a boss years ago who used to call me 'Hurricane Hattie' due to my forceful, single-minded nature when I wanted to get things done. And though I'm not nearly as pushy and energetic as I used to be, I can still get so focused on accomplishing something that I forget to check the balance and availability of my resources first. Stillness rather than spinning can help me see with clarity and take a more rational approach.

  2. In the eye of the storm is the place to be for clarity
    Hope the swellings and bruises are bearable. You must be all colored with greens, blues and purples by now :)

    1. I'm still doing a good impression of a purple plum, but my ability to move without pain is much better. Which is probably why I drew what I did today - so I won't jump back into things too quickly! :)

  3. In the great spiral, we keep coming back to the same things, until we really figure it out.

    1. Being stuck in that repeat loop is usually not very fun!
