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."

Loud and Proud

From the Victorian Romantic Tarot, the Page of Wands:
Body language and attire tell me this kid has chutzpah - the ability to say or do things that might cause other folks to pause. I've known women who could wear the most outlandish outfits, yet they managed to carry them off because they oozed with confidence. But if practice makes progress, then perhaps taking small steps out of my comfort zone can help me develop a bit more boldness. But there's no way in hell you're going to get me in that outfit.

From the Flowers' Messages comes the "Sunflower:"
I can't think of another flower more noticeable than the large sunflower. It stands tall and proud, reaching for the sun. Though I love interacting with people (individuals or small groups), I'm more of an introvert than an extrovert. The creator of the deck gives it the keyword "manifestation." Between the Page above and this flower, I get the message that if I want to create in a concrete way (rather than just in my head), I'm going to have to be willing to put myself and my ideas out in the public eye.


  1. Every person should feel free to shine. Mostly it is not our lack of brilliance but our surplus of insecurity that keeps us from getting out there and bloom like your sunflower; always turning her face towards the sun. I think there're a lot of old messages from our childhoods that are keeping us from shining. Should be worth while to examine these...

  2. Ha, while the public eye can be a scary place, it can also be a very exciting one. Hope you find that chutzpah!

    1. Thanks NP; I wish I could find a can of it like Popeye did with his spinach, lol.

    2. Ha, now that would be an instant marketing success :)
