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 Golden Tarot, the Empress; from the Yantra Deck, Power:
          The Empress is often seen as the emotional ballast to the Emperor's pepper diet of logic. Yet the feelings that flow from her have a purpose - they are used to relate to others. She connects with others in a way that simple rational thinking cannot. In doing so, she nurtures everything and everyone she comes in contact with, creating through connection. The Power card suggests we are in charge of creating our own reality and asks us to consider when we abdicate or exploit our power. There is power in relationships, at times equally shared and other times misused or given away. Often our roles with certain people have become so ingrained and familiar that we don't question if it is healthy or harmful to them or us. Perhaps it is time to be more aware of that power.

People respond in accordance to how you relate to them.
~Nelson Mandela


  1. we don't even recognize we are often being charged for our power, and we pay it... and it's fake power.
