In case you've landed here directly without knowing what the heck is going on, read the instructions below. 

If you're a pro at this, then pick your card(s) and scroll down for the reveal and card meanings.

Weekly Pick-a-Card Instructions: You will first see an image with the backs of the cards at the top of the page as well as what deck I'm using. Close your eyes (obviously don't be driving while you do this), take a deep breath and focus on a situation in your life that you would like some insight into. If you don't have anything specific in mind, you can simply say (or think to yourself): "What do I need to see right now that I am not currently seeing?"

Then open your eyes and look at the image of the backs of the cards and choose either one, two, or all three cards - whatever calls to you. Once you've done that, scroll down that page to see the reveal and the card meanings.

All interpretations are going to include some or all of the deck's card meanings from the book that came with it. This is done because I will have no way of knowing what question you've asked and I have found that a straight meaning from the deck's book is the most accurate in those cases. I also use many different Oracle decks in addition to Tarot and in those cases it only makes sense to use the meanings that come with the deck.

Card Meanings:

Card One (Left): “Eight of Water: VALERIAN

  • “Seek the depths of rest.
  • “‘Sleep is the best meditation.’ – The Dalai Lama
  • “Relax, recover, recuperate.

“Exhaustion makes the simplest things feel insurmountable. You may be overextended and weary. Do you need to step away from commitments?  Invite time for retreat, like the calming energy of this sanctuary.  Pull back from it all.  Be still and recuperate.  Valerian is a valuable tea for those who struggle to rest and relax.  If a lack of control over the situation has led to constant anxiety, invite sleep and consult the dreamtime.  Valerian is a pungent medicine; slowing down may not be a pleasant experience at first, but it is the only way to become strong again.”

Card Two (Middle)“1. The Magician: SUNFLOWER

  • “Unleash your magic.
  • “Radiate power in potency.
  • “From one seed, a thousand.

“The power of manifestation lives within. All the information necessary to create life is contained in the seed; yet it is the elements that make the sunflower grow.  Wind strengthens the stock; water feeds the plant; fire is converted to energy by the leaves; earth anchors the root.  Nourish your ideas with the elements and watch them bloom it into being.  Receive divine light from the unseen realms, shape it into form, then give it all away.  Sunflower roots travel for miles underground bringing nutrients to the flower.  When it matures, the flower had bends to the earth and unleashes thousands of seeds.  Be a conduit of transformation for others.”

Card Three (Right): REVERSED; meaning that you are finding the energy of this card described below challenging in your current situation. - “Seven of Water: BIRCH

  • “Imagine the possibilities. Choose one option out of many.
  • “Open your heart to wisdom from the soul.
  • “Toast to a fresh start.

“Folklore, symbolism, and myth nourish intuition. There are countless forms of divination tools; birch Ogham staves are just one. Birch grows multiple stems from one trunk, and water extracted from the tree rids the body of toxins. When you hear a call to explore the depths, you may have several paths to pursue. Look for the common root in your many desires and clear out unhealthy illusions. Use divination to consider the path you will take next. Tap into the wisdom deep within your heart to divine the message. Your soul will give you direction. Make a clean choice and toast to your decision.”
