The Dreaming Way Tarot: in Praxi

 

In exploring with my new Dreaming Way Tarot deck*, I did a simple two-card draw simply to contemplate my current situation and what might be “crossing,” foiling, or consternating the actualization of my current trajectory… Here’s what came up:

Current situation: King of Pentacles
What “crosses” the situation trajectory: Ace of Pentacles

 

And here’s how I “processed” some of the possible interpretations in my journal:

In addition, here are some other thoughts on this particular draw:

 

“The origin of my belief lies in its being rooted in two domains of life which are commonly regarded as antagonistic. By upbringing and intellectual training, I belong to the ‘children of heaven’; but by temperament, and by my professional studies, I am a ‘child of the Earth.’  Situated thus by life at the heart of two worlds…I have allowed two apparently conflicting influences full freedom…A synthesis has been effected naturally between the two currents that claim my allegiance. The one has not destroyed, but has reinforced the other. Today I believe probably more profoundly than ever in God, and certainly more than ever in the World. On an individual scale, may we not see in this the particular solution, at least in outline, of the great spiritual problem which the vanguard of mankind, as it advances, is now coming up against?

“I am going to broadcast the seed, and let the wind carry it where it will.”**

—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

 

““Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

—The Gospel of Matthew 6:19-21***
