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."

Heart at the Crossroads

From the Gaian Tarot, the Two of Water (Cups); from the Goddess Oracle, 'Hecate:'
          A woman with a heart chakra tattooed on her chest has a playful, happy moment with her canine companion. There is a deep connection between these two; love and loyalty are felt deeply. Many folks find it much easier to have a relationship with animals than people, as they bond with a depth of devotion and faithfulness that does not judge even when we're not at our best. Yet Hecate arrives at the crossroads and suggests that at this moment we have an opportunity to branch out. Do we choose to go back to solitude, stay with the friendships we have (in whatever form they may be), or take a risk and add some new friends? Can we take a chance on being vulnerable? K.T. Tunstall sings, "I came across a place in the middle of nowhere, with a big black horse and a cherry tree." She must choose between uncertainty and certainty, and she chooses the safer way. Yet she later sings that she left her heart back at that crossroads, "And now I've got a hole for the world to see."


  1. Sometimes it feels like I have build a cosy little cabin at the crossroads...

    1. In nine or so months, your cabin is going to be a little less quiet with the arrival of your daughter's bundle of joy! 😁

    2. Lol I think so too. It's just 4,5 month now. We don't have to wait so long for her to arrive anymore. Yes, it's a girl ❤
