last night, before i went to bed, i drew four cards, just to see what dreams may come. the first card i drew, from the celtic wisdom deck by caitlin matthews, was the eleventh card of the major arcana - the balancer, or as she is known more traditionally, as justice.
last night, i simply sat with the card. this morning, after writing out the introduction to tarot notes for this evening's class, i looked up the meaning in the book and saw that, appropriately for me, the ogham tree ms matthews associates with this card is holly. so i decided to read a little further.
according to ms matthews - "the balancer of harmony opens the ways (including the dream-ways) but also guards them. a life lived in full integrity is one that submits all its motivations and actions to truth first, rather than seeking to find out how truth may be bent to serve us."
she leaves me with a question - and which i will leave for you, gentle reader.
what keeps you in balance with the universe?
and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.
