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."

From the Ellis Deck, the Page of Rods; from the Brownies Oracle, 'Suppression:'
          The Page of Rods has so much energy, the way he learns best is through doing. But sometimes he is too young to actually do grown-up things, so he imitates and role-plays. In his leafy outfit, he could imagine himself a knight, an explorer or chief of a tribe. Hopefully, his fox companion will keep a close eye on him in case his imagination gets ahead of his common sense. Suppression seems to show just the opposite of its meaning as one Brownie gets a blast of water from the pump. But perhaps they are trying to wash away any new ideas he's been sharing that don't fit with the status quo. Some folks would prefer we imitate traditional roles and beliefs rather than anything new that scares them. Personally, I hope that little guy won't let his friends make his choices for him.

All men [and women] who have turned out worth anything have had the chief hand in their own education. ~ Sir Walter Scott


  1. I remember when a rhubarb leaf tied on my head with a string was the funnest thing going. We really should be born old and work backwards

    1. We seem to have our sense of play and adventure ground out of us. It takes real effort not to let that happen. I would have liked to have seen you in your rhubarb attire!
