Each week I pull Tarot cards to inspire personal development / spiritual practice for readers of the blog as a group using the Gaian Tarot. (If you want to read more about the process, check out Sacred Practices of the Gaian Tarot: The 3 P’s).You are invited to use the cards below to inspire your practice, and, if you like, share your reflections in the comments. You are also free to draw your own cards.

OVERALL MUSINGS: I pulled these cards and then walked in this bright May day here in New England to my computer. The energy of spring filled my body and delighted my eye. I pondered how each new leaf is like a new hand taking up the work of making food for the tree. That’s pretty magical. So let the earth teach you magic this week. Pause periodically and drink in what ever lesson it has to offer you by the place where you live.
