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."

Mind and Body

This week I'll be using the Prisma Visions Tarot, created and self-published by James R. Eads; the companion booklet was written by Katherine Tombs. The oracle I'll be using alongside it is the Secret Language of Color Cards, created by Inna Segal and published by Beyond Worlds. Today's draws are the Six of Swords and Jade:
          I suffer when I argue with reality. I may pout, rant and point the finger of blame, but it won't change what is. What I can change is my attitude, how I think about these things (and people). Instead of feeling put upon, I can look outward and realize that everyone deals with such issues in some form. Like the butterflies, I'll then cross that chasm and move on to a sunnier, warmer place. The challenges will still be there, but because I've opened my mind, there is extra space for more ideas and possibilities to exist. The lush color of Jade suggests a need to take action. Thinking can only get me so far. I might think up a great exercise plan for the winter months, but it will be useless unless I actually do something with it. I can often trick myself into believing I'm making progress when actually I'm just rehashing plans. Time to get the mind and body moving.

  1. Sounds like a lovely walk in the park will do us both good. Before we get a bunch of rain tomorrow, as the rain that has pounded the Pacific Coast that Sharyn sent our way.

    1. We've been under drought conditions for months now, so please send any unwanted rain this way! :) I'd even take a walk in it.

  2. we always have the option of letting the chips fall where they may (often ON us) or distancing ourselves from the outcome (love that phrase). Funny how often we stay there, chipping, chipping, chipping.
