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."

Passing of the Keys

From the Fountain Tarot, the King of Coins; from the Devas of Creation, First Light:
          Gruhl assigns the phrase 'ordered stability' to this king and describes him as traditional, practical and hardworking. The plants that surround him imply his knowledge of the natural rhythms of life. At this stage, he's not looking for the latest fad to invest in but sticks to what's tried and true. He's got stability and security in spades, but not much originality or innovation. Yet even he knows that all that he owns will be passed along to another one day. First Light is the first ray that pierces the void. This deva is the beginning of a paradigm shift that will eventually open up new possibilities and prospects. Both these cards remind me of handing over the restaurant to our nephews when my husband retired (they officially paid us off for the business yesterday). We had the building's inside and outside decorated with 'hippie decor,' but now all that has been painted over. The menu has been altered and none of the original employees remain. It was hard to adjust to all the transformations at first, but now we see change is not such a bad thing. Time can be a great help in adjusting.

  2. "Time can be a great help in adjusting" This is such a more helpful phrase than "Time heals all wounds"

    1. I think it describes the process of adapting and accepting a little better too. :)

    1. They did have a very rocky start (one nephew is as solid and responsible as the Knight of Coins, the other as impulsive and easily distracted as the Knight of Wands). They are actually thinking of opening a second store now. :)

    2. super! I'm glad to see the end of the Fountain tarot. The only one I liked or understood was the ace of coins.But I 'really' liked that one :)

    3. To be honest, if it weren't for the concise but good booklet that came with the deck, I would pass it on. It's just too stark and colorless for my tastes. I still might decide to let it go eventually.

  4. To everything turn turn turn...the more identikit restaurants spring up here the greater the joy when I find somewhere bohemian/quirky...

    1. I too like stores with their own personalities. :)
