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."

A Revolution in Relationships

From the Shining Tribe Tarot, the Knower of Stones (Knight of Pentacles); from the Animal Tiles, Cougar:
          The broom-like hairdo on the Knight/Knower of Stones illustrates an ecstatic, mystical experience - not something that offers spiritual props but something that causes a change in perception and is transforming. This Knight, who is both a student and a practical person, would definitely be wide open to receiving it. I had a mini epiphany today when I read a reply from a blogging buddy who shared something she had read: instead of worrying about getting the virus (or acting like it won't affect us), we should act as if we already had it. Our attitude of fear or frustration would then be transformed into one of humility, gentleness, and kindness. Cougar is a symbol of the right use of power, a power that is not fueled by ego but by what will be of benefit in the long run. This means my intentions will be clear and my actions will be selfless. Hey World, it's time for a revolution in relationships.

We are all going to die. Let's die having created as much love in our relationships - as much family in our relationships - as we possibly can.

  1. Exactly. If I had it, and it is perfectly possible I might already, would I be thinking about sneaking into town for veggie seeds. Hell no.

    1. Amazing how a change in perspective can change one's actions!

  2. A good lesson for us all, perspective.
