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."

From the Navigators of the Mystic Sea Tarot, the Three of Wands; from the Celtic Lenormand, Birds (Owls):
          The keyword for the Navigator's card is cohesion. This fellow is about to add a third, fiery support to the stand, which will add some stability. Perhaps it is a lack of sleep, but I've got a story in my head that the fire will eventually make that egg glow with a fierce light. He is developing a new type of lighthouse that will shine through the darkest of nights and the worst of all storms. The owls are on an island several miles away, ready to give feedback for his invention. They'll be honest about how well it actually works and maybe how to tweak it a bit to make it even better. I think every endeavor needs feedback, but where do you draw the line between helpful advice and a complete takeover? Perhaps cohesion also implies not letting one's vision get lost in the shuffle. People have wisdom to share, but that doesn't mean I need to discount my own.

    1. Those owls do look like they're observing don't they? :)

  2. Sometimes you just have to turn off the input valve and trust absolutely in yourself and your vision.

    1. Might be good to make sure the person I ask for feedback is qualified to do so. :)
