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."

Variety is Life

From the Alchemical Tarot Renewed, the Three of Vessels; from the Oracle of the Radiant Sun, Harmony:
          These three ladies carry their personality on their head - earth, air and fire. Where is water? It is formed by their relationship together. The Harmony card (Sun in Libra) explains how this diverse group got together. The Sun's clarity shines brightly on what they have in common (Libra), even though they may think and do things in very different ways. Whether the bond comes from a common cause, a shared hobby or a mutual support group, there is unity among diversity. In twelve step groups around the world, the first of the 12 Traditions reminds its members that "Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends upon unity." It is a reminder to remember the purpose of the group. Yet no group would be worth a lick of salt if everyone's perspective was exactly the same. Unity holds us together, but diversity is what help us see possibilities that 'purity of thought and action' would have passed right by.


  1. Ahh diversity. Life would be one big yawn-fest if we were all the same.

  2. I agree with Carolyn! Thank God/dess for infinite versions of human beings. Everybody is different and yet we are all connected. :)

    1. I think it is our diversity that makes us stronger as a whole.

  3. to go deeper, that 'lick of salt' is the commonality of all living beings. Nothing can live without it.
