TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • You seem unwilling to rely on others. How can you choose to a path in your life or to be in a committed relationship if you can’t trust?
  • Perhaps you’re tired of being the beast of burden others count on to help them through rough times and difficult situations. If so, then choose another path; a different response. Only you can prevent others from taking advantage. Appreciate your own value and teach others how to appreciate it too.
  • In order to create a true partnership there must he a give and take. Both partners need to trust they can rely on each other and be able to ask for and accept help when necessary. Are you able to do this or does needing assistance make you feel weak, less than? If so, you are the only one who can choose to change things.

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • You’ve gone as far as you can on your own. Finding partners to help find creative ways to utilize what you’ve learned might be the next best step.
  • A candle burning in isolation offers light to no one. Let your light shine by finding creative outlets to express yourself.
  • Okay, you’ve howled in the wilderness; explored the darkness alone; stumbled along in your quest for self-knowledge and inner truth. How about sharing with the class? Bare your soul and let others learn from and build upon your experience.

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • Partying with friends may be fun but it won’t help you find the emotional fulfillment you seek.
  • Finding the emotional connection you seek with another might happen at a club or bar but how likely is it to be long-term or healthy? Think about what you truly seek in a relationship.
  • Could your friends possibly be holding you back from finding the romantic partner you seek? If you are always with your friends potential partners might be intimidated and afraid to approach you.

 

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds:

  • Opportunities for a stable, balanced & blended creative partnership or endeavor are open to you. Don’t let inner demons and self doubts stop you from going through that door.
  • A marriage or creative partnership could help you find sources of additional inspiration, insight and support. Open your eyes to the possibilities instead on focusing on what could go wrong.
  • Nightmares frighten us because they play into our deepest fears and worries. Try sharing those fears & worries with someone who can support you and help you find ways to dispel them.

 

Twos symbolize formation, balance, partnership, polarity and the coming together of opposites.  Twos can indicate that the focus can no longer be only on oneself; that there is another factor influencing the situation.  They represent the affirmation and confirmation of new directions that were begun at the Ace level.  Wands are usually associated with the element of fire, inspiration, energy, passion, feeling, enterprise, ambition, matters pertaining to the “spark of life”.

The white rabbit on the Rabbit 2 of Sticks reminds me of a person signalling planes at the airport.  For some reason he looks a bit dispirited and tired, as though he’s worn out and can’t do it anymore.  Maybe he needs someone to help him hold the sticks.  Perhaps all that arm waving has just tired him and he needs support and companionship; someone to help keep his energy up and with whom to share ideas.

The Legacy of the Divine 2 of Wands shows a gold key in the center of two locked boxes and two upright spears.  A different colored ribbon flows from the key to each spear or do they flow from the spears to the key?  The concept I draw from this card is one of choices and unleashing energies.  The entire image suggests a sense of stasis, untapped potential.  Things can’t move forward until choices are made and one of the boxes open.  Then the potential within can be unleashed and harnessed.

Both cards seem to suggest a need for decisions to be made and energy focused and unleashed.  Maybe this cannot happen right now because I cannot make the decision on my own.  Perhaps like the white rabbit, I’ve tried to do it on my own for too long and I need a partner or partners.  Someone to help me tap into that energy and help me find some sense of direction and perspective.  I also find that the dynamic when I’m working with someone else tends to make me more productive.

So it seems that the key to unleashing my energy and re-igniting my creative energies is to admit that I can’t do it alone and find some folks who can partner in these endeavors with me.  I do know several people who would probably be great partners for this type of exercise.  I think it would prove to be a complementary and mutually beneficial relationship.  Of course that means I’ll actually have to do these things and not just bull shit about them.

Looking at the image on the Tarot of Dreams, I am struck by the concept that this is a pathway, a doorway whose passage requires a choice be made.  One doorway is filled with luminescent blue light and the other glows with orange and rose-pink energy.  Both seem to be equally valid and viable options but which is the right one for me?  It’s impossible to determine that with the information available.  Nothing is visible beyond the doorways, simple the lovely colors.  Of course when you think about it, isn’t that how life goes?  We make decisions based on nothing but instinct or a hunch.  Do I prefer the colors of the pink doorway or the blue?  That might even vary depending upon the day of the week.

Then we look at the Ferret 2 of Wands and see a trio of ferrets who are obviously working together to achieve some sort of goal.  They are focused and thoughtful while they ponder the task that lies before them.  They also look absolutely adorable.  So perhaps the concept they represent is that even when choices must be made, they do not need to be done alone.  You can seek advice and support from friends, loved ones, even co-workers.  Brainstorming is a very successful practice in many businesses.  Why not use a similar approach to decisions that need to be made about your creative life or career?  The more passionate and committed we are to something, the more difficult it can be to view things from an objective perspective.

The other idea that hit me when I looked at these two cards is to find a partner to help make those decisions; make it fun.  That’s the essence I took away from the Ferret 2 of Wands.  It’s not just about brainstorming and getting input from trusted advisors, it’s about having fun.  If your decision making process don’t tape into your creative and fun side then you risk leading a joyless and rather bland existence.
