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."

Intuitive Delusion

From the Tarot of the Sidhe, the Dancer Queen (Queen of Cups/Water); from the Green Man Tree Oracle, Fern:
          This queen offers the gift of an open heart, nurturing others through empathy and compassion. Her nakedness emphasizes her need for emotional honesty; she will not pretend to feel something she doesn't. Her open nature also allows her to tap into her intuition, a quick perception of a situation followed by a visceral response. As with her emotions, she feels what she needs to do in her body before it is translated in mental-speak. Fern is associated with many myths and legends, most involving a person who discovers a seed or flower of a fern (especially on Midsummer night). The folklore suggests this lucky person will find happiness and riches to last throughout their lifetime. Unfortunately, what makes a plant a fern is that it has no seeds or flowers because it reproduces through spores. Fern asks, "Do you seek truth or prefer delusion?" The problem with intuition is that desire or fear can often produce a physical response that mimics a true intuitive response. It might be a good idea to let the mud settle from the water before diving in.
