Weekly Contemplation, May 8 Through May 14


This dragon’s heavy scales weight it to the ground. Are you glad to be anchored, or do you long to take flight?

Is there something, perhaps a harmful emotion or thought process, you need to release?

Do you need a new experience or to open a door?

Would looking at your life in a more balanced way help you find a freedom, regardless of what you carry?


Weekly Contemplation.

Here is the first in a new series for the Gate & Key Society!

While we’ve seen the idea of daily, weekly, and even monthly card draws floating around on Facebook and YouTube, we’ve never tried it ourselves. But it looks like such a fun way to get the creative, meditative, and spiritual mojo going, we’re going to try!

So starting now, we’ll pull a card from an oracle or tarot deck each week and include a question or two to stimulate contemplation.

This week we’re using Dragon Cards, a 52 card oracle style deck from Findhorn Press by Polly Waterfield and illustrated by Brian Nobbs.


A dragon is dancing around your living room. Is it time to treat life lightly or do you need to be taken seriously today?

How will you approach the world?

How will you react to these times?


A small warning.

A Little Bird.

I brought home a little bird today. It was dead and beautiful. I placed it on a table so I could find a display case. When I came back, glass candy dish in hand, he had been murdered. I am glad my crow friends got a snack, but I will miss my little bird.
