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."

Stinginess or Stewardship?

From the Tarot of Timeless Truth, the Four of Pentacles; from the Shaman's Oracle, the 'Shaman of Purification:'
          What is the line between stinginess and good stewardship? Where is the line between being helpful and enabling? The harm done to either side because of hoarding or helping is one box to tick. The other is to check for hidden motives and insecurities behind the action or inaction. Do we act to become less selfish and self-centered or to people-please and look good? Do we hold back to keep us from financial chaos or because we're insecure and judge others as undeserving? The Shaman of Purification tells us to sweep off the top layer of whatever we tell ourselves and look a little deeper. Reassess and purge the attitudes and beliefs that are no longer appropriate. The truth lies beneath the propaganda and half-truths.


  1. Rob has learned not to say anything lest he feel my wrath, but he thinks I give too much away. I have too much...win win

  2. The cards together remind of 'Calling to the Four Directions' to bring abundance to oneself or group.
