Today’s card is from a brand new deck by Kris Waldherr. It’s sumptuous. It’s lush. It’s layered nuance on layered nuance. It’s like finding a cake that has everything you ever wanted. Okay, so maybe that’s a bit much, but still…this is a lovely deck.
I sat with it shuffling it after opening it. I didn’t look at the cards (normally I do). I just asked it what I would learn from it. This is something I haphazardly do with new decks. 😀
So a card fell out. I, being practical as well as arcane, took that as a “pick me, pick me” and picked it up.
I was a bit startled to see my birth sign staring back at me. Salmon swim head to tail on the nineteenth card in Kris Waldherr’s Sacred World Oracle. Now mind you, 19 is also my birth card number which is how I am a Sun, Wheel, Magician trio.
Okay. So then I picked up the LWB (Little White Book) to see what it said. Hmmm. Keywords: Magic, Intuition, Wisdom.
Gotcha, deck. You are an oracle. MMMkkay! 😀 It goes on to share some salmon mythology and reminds you that when this card shows up, you are being invited to develop your innate magic and wisdom.
Huh! If I didn’t know better, I’d say this deck was trying to curry my favor. Or, maybe, just maybe, the Universe is reminding me that magic and wisdom don’t just happen.
Any witch worth his or her salt knows that you must keep your hand in. You must continue to study, to grow, to practice what you know. This is why a witch keeps two journals. Her grimoire is one, but did you know the other? The mate to the well-known Book of Shadows is the Book of Mirrors.
I’ll let you chew on that a bit with this journal prompt.
“If I had a book of mirrors, what would I see reflected back at me?”
