These last few week’s I've answered every day, from Mabon to Samhain, a question about the changing of the season, with my tarot and oracle cards. Some of them were easy, others personal and sometimes difficult. I've learned a lot along the way:
- Even when it was hard to write every day about a prompt I didn't give up. Since I’m usually only very enthusiastic in the beginning of a challenge, this was a very nice experience. I feel proud I have completed it.
- I have found that free writing about a card can lead to very expanded interpretations which differ every time when you pull that card again.
- Every tarot card can answer every question. That was new for me too. I didn't know that until now. When you circle around the card in your mind there’s always a usable angle from which you can read it.
- Besides that I do believe more strongly that the cards don’t come up randomly. There were some cards so much in sync with the question that they reminded me of little gifts.
- Writing in another language than your own is hard, but it also makes me more conscious of what I want to say. It’s like slow-writing
- Every comment I've got was an unexpected treasure. It is so good to read other people’s opinions.
- Let's not not forget the unraveling of the wisdom hidden in the cards, which has brought me so much unexpected insight and guidance.
- Still suffering from my neck injury, this writing has been a delightful way to be creative.
- All together is was a good practice which I am determined to maintain YAY :D
