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."

An Individual Choice

From the Gaian Tarot, the Two of Fire (Wands); from the Goddess Oracle, 'Sheila Na Gig:'
             Two fire dancers, one male and one female, entertain their audience. Perhaps they were trained by the same person, but it is likely they've adapted the teachings to their personal abilities and styles. No matter what we're doing - creating art, working out at the gym, or leading a social cause - we have to find what works for us. Others may think they have the 'right way,' but if it doesn't work well for us, we'll see no results and likely won't stick with it. Sheila Na Gig is an ancient Irish goddess of birth and death. She represents opening to what is, but not with fear. Her crazy antics are to make us laugh and see the humor in a situation instead of taking everything so seriously. Any arguments about the 'correct' way to do something would be met with hysterical cackling. "We all are born and we'll all die. Why waste time arguing over what's unimportant in the long run?"
