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."

Taste of Sweetness

From the Tarot of the Cat People, the Six of Pentacles; from the Sacred Geometry Oracle, "Cross:"

          After the constricting cards from yesterday, these two are a welcome change. The miserly isolationist has become the community's cat lady, feeding all the homeless, unloved felines. She's figured out that it doesn't matter what you have or how much you have, there's no real joy unless there is someone to share it with. As Charlotte Brontë said, “Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste.” There's nothing like the feeling of loosening and expanding the heart by sharing with others, even if it's only to offer a smile and kind word or lend someone a hand with a task. Variety may be the spice of life, but generosity is what makes it sweeter.


  1. These Tarot cards are very interesting, and lovely to look at. I can certainly relate to it today. I have been single for nearly five years, and it's just me and my two daughters. I'm just now starting to feel the "emptiness" of being single for so long. I miss hugs the most, I think, that and the sweetness of a kiss on the forehead.

    1. What is empty can be filled, but sometimes it may not look like anything we expected! :)
