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."

Light from Darkness

From the Dark Goddess Tarot, the Stars; from the Tattwas Cards, 'Earth - Seed of Water:'
          The Star can often feel like a place where we go to hide and lick our wounds after taking a hard knock. Realizing the mistakes and misperceptions that got us here, it can be tempting to want to stay in this place of in-between. Lorenzi-Prince describes Spider Woman, the Hopi goddess of thought and creation, as being able to draw "light and life from darkness." The companion book delivers her message: "The more you reach for what inspires you, the more your purpose becomes apparent." We start again, following the vision powered by our heart, not by others. The Tattwas Card, Earth: Seed of Water, reinforces this directive; it suggests boldness and motion as we move, guided by our inspiration. Yet the web of Spider Woman is a reminder of interconnection. There is no need to be a lone wolf when others are willing to walk with us.


  1. our ability to hope, and then move toward that hope is the best part of humankind. Sometimes the saddest.

    1. Those are the times when tender hearts find compassion for themselves and others.

  2. The Star is usually one of my favorite cards. The Spider Web/Woman as Star is Unique.
