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."

Your Deepest Desire

From the Legacy of the Divine, the Seven of Cups; from the Tea Leaf Reading Cards, 'Money:'
           In the TV series Lucifer, the devil (aka Lucifer Morningstar) looks deeply into the eyes of individuals and asks them, "What is your deepest desire?" Under his spell, they all answer truthfully, but what they say is often surprising and seemingly out of character. We never really know what motivates people, we can only judge by what they say or do. Do we even know our deepest desires, that which we think will make us feel whole and fulfilled? Perhaps we make so many wrong choices because we look at the surface rather than deeply and don't think about the long run. Money is one of those easy choices - who doesn't think they need more at times? Yet perhaps that is just a cover for our insecurity and longing for more certainty in life. While it may be an immediate help, it usually isn't a lasting fix for what lies beneath.

  1. none of us probably know because our heads are filled with immediate wants. It might take hypnotist to get at the real truth. Am guessing it is no where near what our mind first goes to. I"ll have to look up that show

  2. Want money then get money, still something lacking. We can go through the list of wants and once we get or achieve, most likely we still are unhappy. Then we have to get down to looking inside. Money yes please, even though it can't buy happiness.

    1. We keep trying to fill an inside hole with an outside solution. Money is needed by everyone, but it sure doesn't fix that kind of emptiness.

  3. Love is the only thing which can fill that hole.
    M and I really enjoy watching that show
