I confess I missed Tarot Tuesday last week! I certainly didn’t mean to, but time has really been getting away from me lately. This week, time to forge ahead!
This card is from the Sacred Traveler oracle deck by Denise Linn. It’s really quite a stunning deck, and the matte finish on the cards feels wonderful in the hand.
Answering the Call: This card is the sign you’ve been looking for! It’s the call you must answer, because this is the time. There’s no more waiting around, feeling uncertain. Whether it’s that big decision or that exciting-but-scary thing you want to do, it’s time to do it.
I was lucky enough that this card was actually one I pulled for a friend seeking advice about her job. I often feel that the cards tell us what we already know, and I think this is the case here.
The artwork on the cards is important to me, and I think there’s an interesting message on Answering the Call. The lines in the trees and the deer’s antlers reflect similar lines on the ivy and tree behind the woman. It’s as though the entire universe conspires to help us make these choices, and even though our destiny is right there in front of us, sometimes we need it to be as obvious as a big wooden door to see it!
What does Answering the Call mean to you? Do you have any big decisions you’re making this week?
