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."

Let the Music Move You

From the Tarot of Timeless Truth, the King of Wands; from the Shaman's Oracle, the Shaman of Song:
          Around a large fire, the King of Wands dances with his totem the Bear (a symbol of strength and confidence). This King does not have the impulsive recklessness of his Knight; he has the desire to get things done at the speed of sanity with the emphasis on doing them right. He wants projects to be completed, but he knows rushing will only cause mistakes that will slow down progress. This King uses his energy wisely, making sure the effort spent is reflected in the result. The Shaman of Song represents using sound for healing, energy, peace and joy. Who hasn't used music to finish a tedious task, make a long drive, soothe the spirit after an exhausting day or lighten the heart? As Snow White sang:
When there's too much to do,
Don't let it bother you, 
Forget your troubles, try to be just like the cheerful chick-a-dee,
And whistle while you work .

    1. Deezer our Saturday evening ritual to lighten the heart :)

    2. Ah, now there's a music site I haven't heard of before!

  2. Maybe the King has entered dreamland with the assistance of the Shaman and is conjuring the bears strength to get things done.

    1. There are some days I could use the strength of a bear! :)
