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 Tabula Mundi Tarot, the Prince (Knight) of Wands; from the Universe Cards, Nova:
           The winged lion above this Prince symbolizes his Air of Fire elemental nature. Not only is he smart with a keen sense of ethics, he is also full of passion and energy. He meets every aspect of his life with enthusiasm and relishes challenges as puzzles to be solved. His biggest obstacles however are found within himself: restlessness, boredom and impatience. The Nova card refers to an eruption on an unstable star that has a companion star nearby (the companion's gravity pulls away matter from the nova star). When a nova occurs, the star flares and appears brighter for a few days. Stopworth gives this card the keyword 'growth,' explaining that life often requires us to evolve beyond our comfort zone in order to meet the challenges presented to us. When we are pressed beyond our normal daily stresses, it is easy to become impatient and frustrated with ourselves and others. Yet this is exactly the yeast that can help us grow spiritually beyond our present state.
No matter how far out on the sea of suffering we've sailed, 
all that is required is to turn toward awakening.
It's never too late, but it takes that turning, and no one can do that for us.

  1. I can relate to his impatience: I need life to go back to normal...soon!. 💕☺

    1. I can relate. I know I've said that I could be more patient if things would just hurry up and get moving. :D I'm trying now to train my attention to what is under my nose instead of where I'd rather be.

    1. A bit if leavening levity. :D
      Just FYI, I will be out of town tomorrow, so don't know if I will get a chance to post or not. I'll be doing some landscaping for my mom.

  3. Interesting that this Knight comes straight at us. Lots of them head out going this way or that. Someone barrelling down at me like that really catches my attention.

    1. Especially when there is a lion leading the way!
