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."

Clashing Rocks and Good Fortune

From the Mythic Tarot, the Nine of Wands; from the Symbolon, 'Fortuna:'
          The Nine of Wands shows the final struggle of Jason and the Argonauts as they attempt to sail between the Clashing Rocks to Iolkos. The sailors are exhausted from all the challenges they've faced on their journey, but they don't give up so close to the goal. Is it the beliefs of the mind or the faith of the heart that pushes them onward? Perhaps it is both. Fortuna (Jupiter in Sagittarius - expansive energy and limitless possibilities) shows a cornucopia cloud pouring out blessings on a man below. Good fortune often comes from opportunities recognized and then acted on. Yet even when life seems full of struggles, I can renew myself by acknowledging the good around me. Today I will pay attention to what makes me smile or warms my heart; those are small fortunes that can mature into great ones.
Change yourself and fortune will change.
