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."

Seed Sowing Time

This week I'll be using the Margarete Petersen Tarot, created by M. Petersen and published by Königs Furt. The oracle I'll be using is the Elemental Dice, an idea developed by my good friend Carole Beasley. Today's card and dice roll are the Ace of Coins and Land (Earth + Earth):

          In the center of this card lies a seed surrounded by a serpent. The seed represents the potential inherent in this earthy, physical suit and the coiled snake implies the energy and effort required to plant it and nourish it. As if to back up this push to action, Land suggests being grounded in reality followed by a concrete response rather than simply dreaming and planning. The possibilities of this particular seed will eventually dry up if it isn't cultivated. But it would be wise to heed the words of Gandhi as we work the soil:

It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there will be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.
~ Mahatma Gandhi
