I’ve been playing with various tarot decks lately, trying to settle in to one that I want to stick with for a while, but I keep coming back to The Oracle of Shadows and Light. Which, at this time of year, is pretty apropos, right? 😉
I just did a pull using Joanna Powell Colbert’s “Whispers of the Ancestors” spread, and here it is:
So I’ve got:
“What or who is dead or dying, that you need to honor?” Dress of Alchemy (release your power). I’d say the part of me that doesn’t take a stand for myself, that doesn’t care for myself…that’s the part that is dying. I need to release her, bless her for the part she played in my life, and then step the hell up and take charge!
“What task does the Elder of Fire ask of you?” The Carousel Fairy (what comes around…) To face the circular path I’ve been on, to pay attention to the signs, and to stop! Step off the ride. Make a change.
“Where do you find your center of power?” Eclipse Mermaid (a powerful energy shift) Move into the change. Ride the shift. Be strong in what’s to come. I can do this.
“What new sweetness is wafting in on the scent of burning herbs?” Carnivorous Greenhouse (a tempting offer has a high price)…LOLI’m letting go of wheat and sugar starting tomorrow; the sweetness will be the healthy changes my body will go through and the offer is, well, the sugar and the wheat. 😉 ‘Ware, hobbit, ‘ware!
“What secrets do the ancestors whisper to you during this season of All Hallows?” Two Little Witches (magical space clearing time) Me, my house, the puppies, Himself…it’s all about letting go to let in the new. 🙂
I read these as I was writing it, didn’t look at the cards or the place in the spread til it was it’s turn. Pretty cool reading, right? It all ties into tomorrow’s changes. I love it!
Happy Samhain/Halloween to one and all!
