Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Tarot Card of the Week – May 26 – June 1

Today we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their homelands. May we honor them, not by continuing to glorify and worship war, but by learning to live in peace.


The World
There comes a redeemer and he slowly, too, fades away;
There follows a wagon behind him that’s loaded with clay.

The seeds that were silent all burst into bloom, and decay,

And night comes so quiet, it’s close on the heels of the day.

Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world.
The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own.

Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings.

The heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own.

— from Eyes of the World, Hunter/Garcia

In this time and place of uncertainty, of endless war, of massive suffering in foreign lands that we can’t even begin to imagine; today, even as we are hanging on at the precipice of economic disaster, tipping into global eccotastrophe, even so, still The World comes dancing.

Suppose that you somehow arrived at the certainty that you, personally, are the actual, living Eyes of the World. How might that change the way you live? If you stumbled upon the revelation that your own hands are the living hands of the Creator, that within your heart beats the flaming wild life-desire of Deity Herself, and that in your blood flows all compassion and healing — how might your life change?

If you want to read my other, more traditional interpretations of The World Tarot card, there are several recent ones.

But today, I simply say – look in the mirror, look into your own eyes, and realize that your journey through life is in fact the creative expression of God/dess, experiencing Him/Herself. And this is also true of every other living being.

Now go, and live this with all your mind, body and spirit. There is nothing else to be done.

    Really “getting” this lesson – that the whole “IT” of being here is to express God/dess through creating – has been immensely freeing. THANK YOU so much for putting it in such succinctly beautiful words
