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."

Workable Solutions

This week I'll be using the Spiral Tarot, a book and deck set created by Kay Steventon and published by U.S. Games. I'll also be drawing from the Sacred Journey Cards, a set created by Cheryl Thiele and published by Pomegranate. Today's draws are the Queen of Pentacles and Change:
          This Queen is known for being practical, resourceful and sensual. She feels her purpose is to be of service to others (whether offering comfort with a physical gift or teaching them how to use their resources). Yet the Queen realizes those who serve need time to recharge; she does it by relaxing and enjoying the outdoors. Her idea of comfort involves bare feet, the open sky and the lushness of the natural world around her. Change would seem to be something the Queen of Pentacles would be at ease with, because she is so tuned in to the ever-changing natural world. Yet being human, I imagine the closer that change is to her personal life, the more she might resist. For instance, what if the King told her he was passing a law that no one was allowed to go barefoot anymore? The booklet asks: what action can you take to release resistance to change? Being such a creative woman, I'm sure her answer would be to find a workable solution instead of wasting time fuming about the issue. She's probably the one who came up with the idea for flip-flops.


  1. One of my Father's favorite expressions "the only constant in life is change." So of it is good and some not so good.
