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."

Look Deeper

From the Fountain Tarot, the Lovers; from the Devas of Creation, Uranus:
          The two people in the card appear to be in a protective bubble, a place they can relax and just be. Gruhl describes the Lovers as "recognizing our Selves in a person or a place intuitively." While this kind of love may be romantic, it also includes much more than that: partners, friends and small groups that accept, understand and allow us to be ourselves without reservation. This choice goes far beyond external looks, labels or categories; from the outside, the pair or group may appear as not having nothing in common. The connection comes from within. Uranus is the only planet with a name from a Greek deity - the mate and son of Gaia, known as Father Sky. It is an unusual planet that lies on its side rather than spins on an axis. Summer on Uranus is two decades of non-stop sunlight, and winter is an equal amount of time spent in total darkness. It has an unruly magnetic field, and extreme temperatures. Deeper cloud layers get as low as 360F degrees below zero, colder than any other planet in the solar system, and yet the outer-most layer can reach more than 500F degrees. The deva of this planet represents original and revolutionary thinking. These cards suggest that even the oddest and most unconventional among us has another bookend. We just have to be careful not to let what's on the outside deter us.

  3. In Dutch we say "For every pot there is a fitting lid". I love how the bubble matches the planet.

  4. 'Unlikely friends' are the best - those who don't look like us or appear on the surface to have much in common with us. Often means the connection we share is deep and profound.

    1. I am very lucky to have a friend like that, and we do share a deep connection. :)
