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."

Care for the Creation

From the Badgers Forest Tarot, the Ace of Crows (Pentacles); from the Gemstone Oracle, Rose Quartz:
          I can relate to this crow's good feeling as he takes a splash in the bird bath. We just got our power back on after 24 hours of having no electricity. With the days already heating up to 85F, it feels great to have the ceiling fans on and the AC running. Now that the refrigerator is cold again (and restocked), we have some cold drinks to help us cool off. I've felt the same relief and boost of energy after being sick and finally feeling well again. There is a joy to this card as well as a reminder not to take the body and all that it helps us do for granted. The quote for the Rose Quartz comes from John Muir:
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we 
find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
Muir's passion for the wild outdoors (and everything in it) helped create the first national park system. The stone's message like that of Muir is that we are all interdependent. Every bit of soil, every bug, plant and animal plays a part. Caring for the earth and its inhabitants is not just something we should do, it's something our existence depends upon!


  1. That John Muir quote is perfect for rose quartz! And yes, much palpable joy in that Ace, the bird's wings spread so exuberantly.

  2. Electricity... so many things are dependable to that source of energy it is almost scary to think about, let alone experiencing it, but as you say, lack is often followed by gratitude (for a while :D)
