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."

Rousing the Bear

From the Llewellyn Tarot, the Page of Pentacles; from the Beasts of Albion, the Bear:
          This Page might be a student, but he is also a tinkerer and amateur naturalist. He wants to apply the knowledge he learns to shape his world, looking for what will help make it better. Reading a wide variety of books and willing to learn any useful skill, his openness is what often leads to new innovations and results later. The Page of Pentacles' heart lies in the earth; the more he learns about the physical world, the more invested he becomes in protecting it. His challenge will be in maintaining this level of appreciation rather than developing an obsession for the material comforts the land can provide. Gray suggests the sleeping Bear represents "contained strength and power." If the Page can maintain his love and gratitude for the earth, he will be a fierce advocate for it. He will understand why its resources need to be used carefully and mindfully without upsetting its balance.

  1. That poor bear looks like he got his nose stung by a bunch of hornets. Maybe that page stirred up a hornets nest's in his advocacy campaign. Have a fab Saturday

    1. That's how my cats sleep when it's chilly - with a paw covering their nose. :)
