Tonight, I made sure to smudge myself and the oracle deck with sage lit in my abalone shell as I prepared to pull the card. We’d spent what seemed like hours in traffic at the Lincoln Tunnel because of a bus fire. I hope everyone was okay there. When we were finally close to home we couldn’t proceed up the block because of police activity. There were obstructions all over the place tonight. I didn’t want to bring that energy into the reading.
After I smudged, I placed the cards down in the manner that I’d learned in a recent tarot class. Graciella was not having it. I felt her insistence that I fan the cards out on the desk surface. Graciella is partial to fans . Together we merged our energies and we pulled the Position card.
I love the idea of the textures and deep reds of the fabrics in this image. We see the female’s back and her alluring shoulders. She’s no innocent and she is at the ready to make a choice! We see only two of the words on the wheel of fortune, the wheel of life. They are fear or love. The female sees that there is more that we don’t see from our perspective. She needn’t get stuck by allowing only the two polar opposites as options for herself. The purple skirt she has tied around her waist and the crowns that are seen in the middle of the wheel show that she is of royalty. She must treat her self as one of a higher nature when she makes her choice. The honorable value of her being is intrinsic to everything in this image.
Have fun as you make choices in your life this week. Take the high road, yet don’t mind being a little risque. Wear your choices in a ribald manner. Be saucy, be earthy, yet don’t forget who you are and what you deserve. Taking a chance at a carnival is the epitome of indulging in trying something new and different.
Let us know how this works out in your world this week! We want to know.
In fancies of love and chance,
Graciella and Theresa
