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."

Opening the Door

From the Hadar Marseille Tarot, the Eight of Swords; from the Greek Alphabet Runes, Nu:

          Eight swords surround a fully opened rose while four buds on the outside have been cut from their stems. Efficiency meets defense in this card, such as when people try to introduce innovative ideas or improvements but get cut off by the words "we'll do it the way we've always done it." Yet Nu shows why rigid thinking can become a mental prison. Nu measures true anomaly - the irregular elliptical paths of celestial bodies. If things never change, there's no need to change how we think or act. But life is always in flux with unexpected surprises. An open mind can allow us to see possibilities that might help us meet the challenges and of the sudden curves that come.

The world is full of people who have never, since childhood, met an open doorway with an open mind. E.B. White


  1. The Sun is shining today and next couple of days. Going to open the door this afternoon when a bit warmer and let in some fresh air. My daffodils are in full bloom. Take care of yourself.
