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."

Soaking in the Past

From the Tarot of the Hidden Realm, the Six of Cups; from the Heart of Faerie Oracle, the 'Queen of the Day:'
          This elven woman soaks in memories of people and places from her past. Some touch her and are bittersweet, as a few of the people who live in her heart are no longer alive. Some remind her of hard times and challenges she was able to overcome. Others are of her childhood home and early years. The pearl she wears at her forehead is symbolic of these experiences - she has been shaped by each of them into the woman she is today. It was not so much the 'who, what and where' that molded her as the way she related to each of experience. The Queen of the Day offers sound advice for those who soak too long in the past: "Be aware of the beauty around you, no matter where you are or what situation you find yourself in, for there is beauty everywhere if you have the eyes to see it. Stop and think about how this day, this situation, can be seen in a better light. Beauty and grace are there, but you must find them." 


  1. Same card, similar thoughts To quote Sharyn now are the good old days!

    1. I don't want to shut the door on the past, as there is gratitude and lessons learned to be found there. But that surely isn't where I want to live!
