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."

Creative Scheduling

This week I'll be using the Tyldwick Tarot, created and self-published by Neil Lovell (who unexpectedly passed away August 2018). I'll also be using the Antiquarian Lenormand, created and self-published by Maree Bento. Today's draws are the Empress and the 'Mountain:'

          Front and center of this garden is a statue based on an ancient statue of Artemis in Ephesus. The temple of the original statue was located a short distance from the city, as Artemis was thought to preside over boundaries, wild vegetation, animals, and nature in general. While the Greek Artemis was predominately seen as the goddess of the hunt, the Ephesus Artemis was a goddess of fertility and was often pictured draped with eggs from her waist to her shoulders. Artemis was a virgin goddess, however, and protected the chastity of others and herself. She was no one's baby mama. She seems to ask, in this lush garden of giant oaks and roses, what we are passionate about creating. The Lenormand card shows a mountain, a symbol of a major obstacle or blockage to our goal. Together with the Empress, it suggests that carving time out of a hectic, over-packed schedule for doing what we love will require some creativity in itself.
