Today, I used the Paulina Tarot, by Paulina Cassidy. The card I drew was Justice.
I seem to be on a roll with the Major Arcana and court cards lately. And it's not surprising...Important things are happening in my life, while I sit on the sidelines and wait...And wait...
The Justice card signfies being judged. In an upright position, it usually points towards a fair outcome, a restoration of balance. This card also warns me to be careful and fair and weigh all decisions that I have to make.
Right now, our lives are in the governments hands, waiting for my husband's Visa to arrive. It's been a long hard road, and all of the cards I've drawn recently seem to revolve around our current situation being resolved fairly.
I just wish something would happen...I'm so tired of waiting, and after 7 years, I believe I've been more than patient.

The rendering depicts an affluent lady, out for a leisurely walk with her favourite pet.
This is a card about self and independence. We should always be able to rely on ourselves and be self sufficient.
In this card, she is comfortable being alone, and enjoying her status in life. She is in control of herself, but this doesn't mean she didn't work hard to get to this point. It's nice to be able to relax and enjoy the rewards that you've worked so hard for.
I believe she is content in her own skin, with her own thoughts, and this is very important. While she may not relish being alone, she is capable of going solo without any ill effects on her psyche.
I believe the message this card brings to me today is that I've allowed others to take care of me and my needs long enough. I need to stand on my own two feet and regain my independence. I used to be this woman, and I can be her once again.

I absolutely love this tarot deck. I find it to be humorous and quirky, and I get amazing readings by using this deck. However, I only use it for certain people - mainly those who can relate to it on the level that it was intended. It is a very blunt deck, and if you don't want the truth, you should never consult it. But Patrick designed it so that it can also make you see the humour in places you wouldn't normally expect to find it.The card for today is The Sun!
I love it when this card comes up in readings! It brightens my day, much like the actual sun in the sky.
And this card truly represents a ray of sunlight coming into your life... Today is full of hope and optimism. I've not had too many days like this recently, so I welcome it with open arms.
I am a sun worshiper - always have been, and I have the skin to prove it! This card makes me think of good fortune and happy times spent with loved ones. There is nothing any more relaxing and rejuvenating to me than spending a day at the beach, basking in the sun's glow. It is funny that I should draw this card for today...We've had very unusual warm weather over the past couple of weeks, and today is the first day the impending winter has shown itself. This card makes me feel warm, and happy to be alive, even if the inclement weather is winding up outside.
This card also represents illumination on a mental and spiritual level.
I am optimistic that this day will be a good one!

Faery Nuff and Laochan are the best of friends. They are reminding me today to value my friendships. This is something that I try to do each and every day.
I'm looking forward to going home and being able to spend time with my friends again. I miss those long talks and visits so much!
I've always considered my time here in Ontario to be temporary, and I haven't allowed myself to form close friendships like the ones I have with my friends back in Kentucky. It was hard enough to say goodbye to them, so I suppose it was a bit of self preservation that led me to limit the depths of the friendships I have formed here in Canada.
I'm very blessed with friends, and I must try to never take these relationships for granted.

This card represents someone who is tampering with my life, or meddling in a part of my life that they have no business being involved in. They might even believe that they are trying to help, but this is rarely the case.
Today, I should focus on tying up my own loose ends, before someone else tries to do it for me! Not a difficult task, if you know what those 'loose ends' are!
This is something I will have to think about throughout the day. And perhaps this faery is also telling me to finish what I start, because if I don't, someone else may just come along and decide to 'help me out'.

"O! That Gnome" warns that this day may be a chaotic one - but it will be creative chaos, which is always inspiring! He's reminding me to be willing to take risks...He's a bit of a trickster, so if I give him the opportunity, he will make sure that I fall on my face at least once, just to give me a different perspective on things!
So, today, my creative chaos is in starting this blog...A bit of a tribute to "O! That Gnome" for the part he plays in my everyday life, and the inspiration he brings me. I will embrace this day, and remain open to the unexpected.
