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."

Spice Rack

From the Transformational Tarot, the Three of Cups; from the Celtic Book of the Dead, the 'Island of Many Birds:'
Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they wanna have fun 
~ Cyndi Lauper

          "But Barb," Brad whined, "I want to spend the weekend with just you!" "Sorry babe, but the girls and I are having a night out," she firmly said. Whether a romantic relationship or a friendship, most everyone has experienced an intimate bond with another at some point in our lives. It generally works well until one person wants exclusive rights to the other's time and attention. Bond soon becomes bondage, and the world shrinks down to a very small, claustrophobic size. Multiple connections help us develop emotionally rather than stagnate and offer a wider perspective through which to view life. The Island of Many Birds is a symbol of being spoiled for choice. When we have several options, we may start overanalyzing and become so finicky that we don't choose anything. When developing friendships, it can be tempting to look for someone who likes and has the same opinions we do. But if the purpose is to expand our experience, then variety might be the spice worth choosing.  


  1. I did once weekly housekeeping for a favorite boss for a year. They owned a restaurant and were both good cooks. One day I lined up their spices alphabetically. I'm not sure they are over the concept yet :)

    1. Our minds move in the same general direction, my friend. :D

  2. Girls just wanna have fun has always been a favorite of mine. Now it will play in my head most of the day. My Queen of Wands is humming and tapping her foot.

    1. Your Queen would be a good one to have some fun with!
