Got a message from the oracles via Ravynne Phelan and her Dreams of Gaia Tarot. She's changed so much of the original Tarot deck structure that I prefer to use a single card as my special guide for the week. As she says on the back cover of the guidebook: "To seek . . . to feel . . . to grow . . . to heal." Sounds so much like what Guidely is all about. 😊 This week's guide is a growth-lesson take on what's normally a negative card in the Tarot: The Nine of Air (or Swords). Known as the nightmare card, traditional decks show a woman awakening from a bad dream, with her head in her hands. Not so here. This dreamer is into something else altogether. She has opened her imagination (see the universe in her Third Eye?) to see the whole picture of space and time, to understand that she has the power to awaken and use that imagination to create what she desires (flames on those fingertips!). This is your call to awaken your own imagination to use it for creative purpose. I'd love to hear from any of you about how you see this image and its symbolism. There's a lotus, a hot knife(!), angel wings, strange symbols (maybe you know what those are—they look vaguely familiar).
