Daily Draw: Gateway Oracle Cards, Planting Seeds/ Fairy Lights Tarot, Ace of Wands
It is a year today since I began blogging my daily draw. Although it was in secret so not sure today counts as an anniversary.
Today's oracle urges us to be clear on what our hearts truly desire. It suggests to me the importance of planting spiritual seeds first for the clarity we need to decide which worldly seeds to sow. The card also speaks of nurturance so what we plant grows strong like the oak. Partly this means being willing to pull the weeds along the way.
I also drew a card (the Ace of Wands) from the Fairy Lights Tarot which is the first deck I blogged with. According to the guidebook "A tree of inspiration is growing from a seed planted long ago. Tend it well and draw upon its creative powers''
This image of the sapling growing from an old trunk reminds me that we don't always get to start from a perfect beginning. Sometimes growth emerges out of broken or dying things. Things can grow from seeds which we planted quite unintentionally or without great expectations. Whether the tree in this card is beautiful or a weed depends on your point of view.
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant
Robert Louis Stevenson, 1850-1894
