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."

Soup of Bowls

From the Roots of Asia Tarot, the Seven of Cups; from the Mah Jongg Oracle, Commence:
          There are a lot of faces and fish swimming around in this soup of bowls. Our imagination can come up with any number of possibilities for happiness, but what will be emotionally fulfilling in the long run?  It is easy to fall under the spell of the values that our society and the media proclaim rather than taking the time to determine our own core values. At some point, we'll get uncomfortable enough to choose something and hope for the best. The Commence card suggests movement in the real world rather than just shuffling ideas around. If we've made a wrong choice, we can acknowledge it and deal with it. Then we begin the process of choosing again, hopefully with a little hindsight.

The measure of choosing well, is, whether a man likes and finds good in what he has chosen.
~Charles Lamb
