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 Hezicos Tarot, the Hierophant; from the Way of the Horse Oracle, Bonfire:
          Either this is a humble priest dedicated to 'attraction rather than promotion,' or he's wondering whether he's out of a job because no parishioners have shown up. Research in the U.S. has shown that the religiously unaffiliated category (atheist, agnostic, 'none') is up to 26% while Christianity has somewhat declined. Yet while less than half of Americans think that religion can answer today's problems, three-quarters of these folks still believe religion is important. Perhaps this discrepancy is because the dogma of religion causes intolerance and division but its deeply embedded principles (honesty, kindness, etc.) offer a spiritual framework of ethical living. Bonfire suggests burning off excess energy, due to sadness, fear, anger or joy and excitement. A safety-valve release is a good idea in some cases, otherwise, assault, suicide or substance abuse might be an end result. Imagine if all religions stopped focusing on judgment and instead had the goal of eliminating suffering, offering a safe refuge in which to heal. At least it's nice to imagine it...


  1. I live in a bible belt area. I drive the mega churches with hundreds and hundreds of car and think of all the searching they are doing, even if most of them are only searching for one hour a week.

    1. My whole state is a Bible Belt. :D A friend from Australia was in awe that we seemed to have a church on every block.
