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."

Live and Let Live

From the Fairy Lights Tarot, the Seven of Wands:
The fairy waving goodbye to a swirling group of lights is a departure from the usual RWS image of a man fighting off a crowd with a stick. Sometimes groups and institutions split because the goal of one faction and how they choose to reach it changes. Those who once supported each other and worked for a mutual cause have become divided. The best possible outcome is that each side will reform into two new divisions, and both will move toward their goal in their own way. It doesn’t always have to turn into mud-slinging and name-calling.  Peace and forward progress can be restored, but only if the objective and not resentment remains the focus.

From the Heart of Faerie Oracle, the "Hero:"
The Frouds use a woman to show the feminine side of valor. They write, “Think of love that lets us accept the differences in people and the beliefs around us. Think of love that is truly unconditional. That is heroism.” This card in combination with the one above suggests I choose the better way by allowing others to have their own ideas without trying to argue or prove that mine are better. It’s a big enough world for all of us.
