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."

Listen to the Messenger

From the Nigel Jackson Tarot, the Eight of Staves; from the Viking Lenormand, Fish:
          The swiftly moving runner with a message in his hand parallels the Rider card I drew yesterday. Besides the emphasis on speedy events, Jackson suggests it is also about an optimistic communication. He seems to be running toward the school of sardines on the Fish card, which generally indicates resources or a business transaction. Both made me think of hearing from the lawyer that we retained after the accident. I drive this guy crazy, I have no doubt. After seeing pictures of my battered and bruised body, I'm sure dollar figures were swimming in his head. But I don't really want to sue anyone, I just want them to pay for the ambulance, ER and doctor bills. But he has been a help in getting me to the doctor, which in turn led me to another option for the huge hematomas I sustained (laser treatments rather than needle aspirations). I suppose he is worth listening to!
You advised him not to get a lawyer, giving as one of your reasons the opinion that lawyers are a pain in the ass. Gentlemen, the pain is here. (Reggie Love)

  1. with both cards heading in the same direction it looks like your tower moment has passed and you are moving along.

  2. I hope you will soon be able to move as agile this guy in your card and that the fish you'll catch will be enough for paying the bills
    Like Carolyn says; maybe then you can leave it all behind you :)

    1. I went out walking with my daughter yesterday (she has the new Pokemon Go app). Even though we only went about 3/4 of a mile, I was worn out! Definitely ready to be less wimpy and get my groove back. :)

    2. Somehow I can't imagine you chasing Pokemons :D

    3. I'm more along for the shouts of encouragement! :D
