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."

Recognizing My Limits

This week I'll be using the World Spirit Tarot, published by Llewellyn and created by Jessica Godino and Lauren O'Leary. The oracle deck I'll be pairing with it is the Mystic Glyphs; it was published by Red Wheel and created by Barb Rogers. Today's draws are the Five of Swords and Happiness:

The combination of these two cards remind me of the expression, "Would you rather be right or would you rather be happy?" Along these lines, here are some things I'm beginning to recognize:

  • Discussion nurtures relationships but debate can damage them.
  • Being liberal-minded is not the same thing as being open-minded.
  • Sometimes people just want to be heard.
  • Curiosity opens doors while certainty can keep them shut.
  • Disagreeing with someone doesn't mean disliking or hating them.
  • Fixing people is not my job.


  1. i will take happy. It is a challenge to make that choice; often in Life I have opted for being right.

  2. I hate arguing, I just choose to be right, to myself.
    With Rob, I pick my battles and those seldom.
    thoughtful there, being open minded not necessarily liberal minded. Thank you.

    1. I prefer to agree to disagree with Richard; I hate arguments that go nowhere.
