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."

From the Cosmic Tarot, the Prince (Knight) of Pentacles; from the L'Oeil de Lotus, Force:
         This Knight reminds me of a long-haired, young Clark Gable, perhaps best known for his line in Gone with the Wind: "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." His character in the story, Rhett Butler, predicted the South would never win the Civil War. Butler was one of the few characters clear-eyed enough to see Southerners and their "cause" for the romanticized self-centeredness it was. Though his Achilles's heel was Scarlet, he eventually left her, choosing real life over drama. This Knight likes his feet firmly planted in the ground with concrete tasks to do and goals to attain. But the bull (and sun) in Force point out his stubborn side. Just because he has a plan doesn't mean he can bulldoze other people into accepting it. Anyone who's ever had to manage employees will instantly recognize his dilemma. In order to get anything accomplished, he's going to have to be willing to be flexible and learn how to compromise.


  1. Appreciation goes along way to working with others. I notice another horned animal in the back drop of the Prince of Pentacles card, maybe he was tired of being in the back ground and showed up front and center in the second card. Like employees don't leave them unrecognized or they may wander off to find green pastures.

    1. I think telling employees what they do right is even more important than telling them what they do wrong; everyone needs encouragement.

    2. Everyone likes to hear what they do right; to get a compliment or two without a "but" to diminish them
      Often we don't appreciate one another enough and take their work for granted. When was the last time you were complimented for cleaning your house?

    3. This past weekend actually. :) Now that my husband is retired and "helps" with the domestic chores and yard work, he has a new respect for what I've been doing all these years!

    4. Its never too late for that. :)
