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."

It Sounded Much Easier in My Head

From the Buckland Romani, the Two of Bolers (Wheels):
I'm really not surprised this hunky fellow showed up today. I've got a lot of obligations on my to-do list this week, and I'm already feeling overwhelmed. The color of his wheels make me think of balancing activity (yellow) and rest (blue). He manages to keep the rope taut between the two, neither letting the rope go too slack or pulling so tight it breaks. The differing heights of the wheels remind me of the importance of setting priorities and doing one thing at time until it is done. Maybe I do have what I need to get through this week, if I'll take a few breaks and concentrate on the first number on my list instead of all of them at once.

From the Lakota Sweat Lodge Cards comes "Kanka - Old Woman Sorceress:"
This wise sorceress is a transformer, and her lesson is "all visions have something for you to know." Yet she also winks and adds, "Know that I am fond of tricks." Geez louise, I've drawn a trickster. So what could her message be for me? Probably that I volunteered for half the stuff on my plate this week (with ideas of being "helpful" and "exciting" floating in my brain). But she would also remind me that I need some tension and stress in my life to push me out of my comfy chair (and out of my rut).


  1. Too often we say yes and commit to too many things. Perhaps yellow and blue could also mean finding balance between the mind and the heart. It is the idea of being helpful that is so alluring. but what does the little voioce of the heart say? Do you really want this???
    Try to look at this week one day at the time. That always keeps me sane :D

    1. Some of it can't be helped - like filing our taxes. :) But you are so right - I need to take it one day, one moment at a time!
