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."

Holy Cooperation

From the Motherpeace Tarot, the Three of Discs:
Three women work together to build a house; the one on the ground shapes and fires the bricks, the one on the ladder has strong arms and legs to carry the bricks, and the one at the top of the ladder knows how to lay and bond the bricks with mortar. All of them have their talents, and though each might be able to build a home on her own, together they can build one of quality. Each woman must labor with humility, knowing she is neither less nor more important than the other. They are all an integral part of getting the job done and doing it well.

From the Toltec Oracle comes Tlawiskalpantekutli:
Though commonly known as the "Lord of Light," Tlawiskalpantekutli is more accurately translated "Lord in the House of Spiritual Blooming." This card heralds a spiritual awakening, a moment of clarity and joy. Sanchez warns that this should not be confused with accomplishment nor should it be considered permanent. He describes it as "a sacred residue left in your heart" that makes us continue to search and work for that connection again. These two cards taken together teach me that working cooperatively with others can be a holy moment and a sacred connection. These are the types of spiritual unions I can discover every day.
