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."

Light and Shadows

From the Nigel Jackson Tarot, the Juggler (Magician); from the Viking Lenormand, 'Lily:'
          The Juggler/Magician has the skills, knowledge, and resources to turn ideas into something concrete. But he also has a shadowy side, a part of him that can hide the truth and make it look convincingly like something else entirely. He has excuses, blame, and rationalizations that are fluffed up enough to sound as if they are valid. The Lily represents wisdom that comes from maturity - basically common sense that comes from a very wide and deep perspective. It is firmly rooted in reality and not swayed by those who are eloquent with words. This wisdom would suggest that all the energy put into hiding the truth could be better used in dealing with it. What we resist will persist until it is aired out in the sunlight.


  1. I'm often gobsmacked that liars will lie when the truth would serve better.

    1. People hide from the truth for all sorts of reasons. It always ends up with pain catching up.
