Over the Hump by Kate Mura of Group Tarot

A space for tarot reflection for the day, week, or moment it comes across your screen. Each of these is reworked intentionally for The Edge, from the egregore of Group Tarot’s Card of the Week, to center education, diversity, and intuition.

As I sat at my aunt’s chocolate colored, oval, dining room table,

it was raining hard outside.

Quite the change from the warm, sunny day that greeted my Uncle Barry’s memorial, and the bright yellow daffodils in front of my computer.

Family came in from all over Michigan, Texas, New Mexico, and Oregon to celebrate and remember a sweet, sweet, soul.

My mom and her sister read in comfortable silence with just the crunch of popcorn augmenting the tink, tink, tink of drops against the gutters and windows.

My cousins enjoyed some solo time and I sat with Modern Witch Tarot by Lisa Sterle and Cirque du Tarot by Leeza Robertson to my right. Card of the Week wanted to come from Modern Witch, but Cirque du Tarot wanted to be there too.

We were given,

Seven of Pentacles inverted.
Gods it can be hard to be patient!

So often – especially in toxic hustle culture – we can feel the urge to speed so much up.

Work faster.

Get over pain and trauma in a couple days.

Plant tomatoes and harvest next week.

Of course, we know that’s not how life cycles actually work, but sometimes it can be really hard to simply wait. Although, depending on your role models, maybe some of you don’t know. Maybe this is new information, that grieving takes a long time and flows in it’s own unique ways for every individual, colored by each relationship. You may cry a lot or none at all. You may get really mad, or feel huge amounts of relief – that you might be scared to share with others lest they judge you/your relationship.

Breathe.

Come back to the card.

Enjoy the symbiosis of our exhaling carbon dioxide feeding beautiful plants and inhaling their expelled oxygen. Just taking the time to breathe with the plants, some of the oldest teachers on this good Earth, our only home, as rain crowe frequently says.

I just finished reading Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer. She talks about how in many indigenous cultures plants are recognized as some of the oldest teachers.

Humans, in stark contrast tp Judeo-Christian philosophy, are the youngest, with the most to learn.

So this week, we are invited to listen to our plant teachers, whether they are indoors and potted as in this illustration, outside on a hike, waking up in our backyard gardens, and anywhere else we hear or feel the gentle touch of plant teachers.

I would love to hear about how you commune with plants this week, and cultivate patience.

PS ~ I did look at Cirque du Tarot’s 7 of Pentacles, and it didn’t speak to a comparison. Just wanted to be at my side.
