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."

Unconditional Openness

From the Light Seer's Tarot, the Two of Wands; from the Celtic Lenormand, the Heart:
          Holding on to one staff while another leans in a corner, a young woman stares wistfully out her window. The globe and VW bus photo suggest she dreams of travel and excitement, yet she must leave the comfort and stability of the known for the unknown to do so. Will she use the fiery energy of the Wands to make a choice and then act on it? The heart shape formed by the open mussel shell reminds me of the unconditional openness that can aid us in relating to life. There is no certainty and permanence anywhere, even in the comfortable, feathered nest we currently sit. Pema Chodron wrote: "When you open yourself to the continually changing, impermanent, dynamic nature of your own being and of reality, you increase your capacity to love and care about other people and your capacity not to be afraid." If she's looking for adventure and not perfection, an open mind and heart can be beneficial first steps in that direction.
