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."

Learning Diversity

From the Ellis Deck, the Eight of Pentacles; from the Brownies Oracle, Diversity:
A lone person hangs banners on a bridge. When we are trying to bridge the place between where we are and where we want to be, markers help. It might be grades received or certification granted. For others it may be lab work or steps on a Fitbit. Sometimes it could be ribbons won at an art show or cooking contest. These banners allow us to see how we're progressing and what still needs work. Yet once we get across the bridge, we must keep widening the circle around our focus instead of churning out the same thing or doing it the same way over and over. The Brownies suggest diversity - not just the inclusion of different elements, but the in the way we think about them. Creativity shouldn't just be kept in a jar with the lid on, but poured in a variety of containers.

  1. It is always scary to try something new but when you can muster the courage it is always exciting even if it doesn't work out in the end

  2. I like that "bridge the place where we are and where we want to be" I am at that bridge, been there for awhile. Can't decide to cross or stay put? Maybe the Brownies answer of diversity should be considered.

    1. I think there are a lot of ways to build and cross that bridge - hope you find a way that works for you. :)

  3. waves fitbit and shouts pick me pick me! 1300 steps in my first hour up. Well to be truthful, they would normally be Robs steps watering plants, but he is putting up hay in eastern Oregon for a friend, so I'll take 'em, and have a bigger breakfast.

    1. You are the queen of Fitbit, woman. Would love to be helping you water, as I imagine the heat and gnats are as much an issue in your neck of the woods!
