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."

From the Llewellyn Tarot, the King of Pentacles; from the Beasts of Albion, the 'Squirrel:'
          Like his son the Knight, the King of Pentacles enjoys building and growing. But because he has gotten older and matured, he also sees the practicality of saving and restoring. He would find our 'throwaway' society repulsive; his idea would be to at least make things serviceable if possible and give it to someone who could use them. While the King would appreciate Squirrel's forward-thinking in reserving a cache of food, he might not look favorably on its constant skittering to and fro. Busyness should have a purpose and not simply be a distraction, in his opinion. Yet lest we think him a nose-to-the-grindstone kind of guy, he would assure us that play and relaxation have a purpose too. As a believer in restoring things, that would include the body and spirit.


  1. Most of the time I would not agree to any of the Kings advice, but with this King I would. Too much is tossed that could be re-purposed. Make it do or do without is some old bit of sage advice.

    1. That was sage advice that my grandparents lived by and passed down to us. :)
