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."

Finish Line

From the World Spirit Tarot, the Sage (King) of Wands; from the Mystic Glyphs, Life:
          This King loves nothing better than a good challenge; it gives him a chance to strategize, form creative solutions and lead a team to victory. A drought of instant successes won't deter him. He's in it for the long haul and is determined to make it to the finish line. His enthusiasm never wanes, which makes him a charismatic guide for those who follow. Yet the Life card might make him pause. It suggests a door letting in fresh air or a mouth taking in a breath. No triumph is ever achieved in a straight line with no rest breaks. And as Ralph Waldo Emerson reminds us, "It is not the length of life, but depth of life." It's hard to dig deep when you're racing to the finish line.


  1. that is one cocky self confident camel/mount. Love 'em.

  2. Born into it he has to be in for the long haul, but does he do a good job of it? Doing his kingly things.

    1. Hopefully he has a queen who keeps him on the right path. :)
