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."

A Pig in Clover

From the World Spirit Tarot, the Sage (King) of Pentacles:
Why is this king content and happy as a pig rolling in clover? It's not that he has so much stuff - while his surroundings are beautiful, they are simple. The booklet describes him as a ruler "with a steady hand and kind heart" whose achievements grow from "an inner peace, a satisfaction that stems from a deep appreciation of life." He is in tune with the cycles of nature which helps him bring "patience and practicality to everything he does." From his gratitude comes contentment and from his groundedness comes a calm perseverance. I think this King would agree with Victoria Moran: "When you’re clear about your purpose and your priorities, you can painlessly discard whatever does not support these, whether it’s clutter in your cabinets or commitments on your calendar."

From the Mystic Glyphs oracle comes "Work Unity:"
Rogers explains this glyph means to find a person who can balance out your weaknesses or lack of skills but who I can also bring strengths and assets to the partnership. I love structure and organization, getting things done on time, and have the tenacity to stick it out through challenging times. What I often don't have is the ability to know when to take a break, relax my standards and just have some fun for the hell of it. Though these types of people may be very different from me, they are essential in helping me live a full, satisfied life.


  1. It is hard to know when we've arrived isn't it? Because the horizon just keeps going.
    Think of that commercial "you've reached the end of the internet". Always made me laugh because it is unfathomable to do so.

    1. That commercial was pure genius - and perfectly describes that unfathomable understanding. :D

  2. I love how when we grow older it becomes easier to be content with what is really important. To gradually be able to distinguish the needing from the wanting. I think it can be very grounding to know you have enough to be happy and accumulating more doesn't make you really happier
