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."

Disco Fever

From the Via Tarot, the Eight of Wands; from the Nature's Pharmacy deck, Cinnamon:
           The pulsing ball of energy and the ball of light at the top of this Eight of Wands gave me a flashback to disco clubs of the seventies where strobe lights, disco balls, and bass-driven dance music blared. Yet the energy here is not quite as chaotic; with direction and attention, it can clear obstacles, create change, and bring progress. The key is not to get distracted or thrown off balance by the swift movement of things (heed the 'fasten seatbelt sign'). Cinnamon has been used as a spice for thousands of years. Just the smell of it gives me a feeling of comfort. It can add spicey sweetness without relying on sugar, and it is high in antioxidants (outranking even garlic). It is a reminder to ground myself in something common and simple when life is moving at high speed.
Remember that you will have hard days and smooth days, and that the better you eat, rest, and refresh yourself emotionally, the better you will cope in the future. —Aviva Jill Romm 


  1. A little cinnamon on a big red apple cut in eight slices.

  2. Ive been directing my ball of mental energy toward an invention that opens veggie bags at the grocery store.

    1. Plastic bags are a pain if your hands are dry. A dab of hand lotion rubbed on your fingers might help.
