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."

Show and Tell for Adults

From the Prisma Visions Tarot, the Six of Swords; from the Secret Language of Color Cards, 'Aqua:'
          The Six of Swords is about moving on - changing our attitude and beliefs. My phone has been persistent in sending me a message from the Emergency Alert System to tell us we're under a hurricane warning. The TV is constantly posting updates of where Hurricane Michael is and what to expect. Of course, there will still be hurricane parties or people who simply ignore all warnings (being jaded from other storms). As NYT's writer Christopher Mele explains, "Emergency managers trying to persuade residents to evacuate as a hurricane approaches can be like parents trying to cajole their children to do something: They rely on a blend of fear, tough love and their authority." For those who are anxiety-prone, it can have the opposite effect and shut them down. Yet Aqua suggests there might be a more equanimous way of handling things. My suggestion would be to have regular people on television calmly explaining what they do to get prepared - practical steps of what to buy, what to gather together, and where to go. Show and tell for adults.


  1. All my good thoughts are with you and everyone in the path of Michael. It has the potential to turn a major problem. Be safe.

    1. Thank you, Carolyn. I'm staying busy doing the small things that might be helpful: saving bags of ice, collecting flashlights and batteries, charging phone battery packs, getting nonperishable food, getting extra pet food, etc. Physically doing something helps me stay grounded. :)
