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."

Center Line

From the Light Seer's Tarot, Temperance; from the Celtic Lenormand, Birds (Owls):

          A young man swirls the cool, rocky moon's energies with those of the fiery sun. His message is to walk the middle way, enjoying and employing both while avoiding extremes. Buddhist wisdom is divided into 'absolute' (insights about reality) and 'relative' (what is grounded in the physical world) truths. The absolute is the essence of reality that can't be put in a labeled box, while the relative involves our daily experiences in the concrete world. To separate these two would be impossible - we can't live a spiritual life without being grounded in reality. The Birds/Owls are a reminder that sometimes I need to listen to the wisdom of others in order to see a fuller truth rather than my personal slice of it.
