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."

Probing the Mind

From the Rosetta Tarot, the Prince (Knight) of Tarot; from the Ascension to Paradise deck, 'Snipe:'
          This Prince/Knight has a chariot drawn by fairies, which offers a glimpse of what his mind looks like. Meleen suggests he has what the Buddhists call 'monkey mind,' with thoughts that never rest long in one place. Being Air of Air elementally, he is intelligent and has an inexhaustible supply of creative ideas. Unfortunately, these ideas aren't always valid, as they may not be grounded in the real world. Even when useful concepts or theories are produced, this Prince rarely follows through (because a new set of ideas has caught his attention). Yet anything he believes, he considers the truth. The Snipe is a wading bird with a long slender bill with which it probes marshy ground in search of food. The bill is so sensitive, the bird can tell immediately what it touches. It's up-and-down movements resemble a sewing machine needle, and thus it reflects the question, "What needs mending in your life?" Combined with the Prince, it suggests that certain beliefs need to be softened with a gentler, more compassionate approach.

  1. Shame on him for tethering fairies for use and enjoyment. He should be denied entrance into the beyond until he gets act and thoughts in order.

  2. what an amazing diversity in this world. There is even room for fairyfolk. They are pretty quiet, don't read much about them in the news.
