I want to tell you the story of how I create each of my cards. Think of this as my Guidebook to my personal deck of cards. As I create new ones, I’ll share more stories. You’ve got at least 22 weeks of stories coming your way, one each week. The majority of my cards are created in Inktense pencils on watercolor paper and these are their creation stories.
Goddess Ma’at – Balance
What is out of balance in your life right now? How can you adjust the scales to bring things back into balance? Connect with your deepest desires, and realign with them. This may require some shifting of priorities, but it’s important to care for yourself. When you do this, make sure you tell the people that need to know, don’t hide your plan or your needs. The balance you seek won’t come if you’re only balancing when it’s convenient for others.
The Inspiration and meaning of this Card
The Goddess Ma’at was my guiding Goddess for a month earlier this year. She was pulled for me by my friend, Kerin, for one of her groups. Ma’at fit well for me that month. She is the Egyptian Goddess of justice, harmony, and balance. She weighed the soul on the scales opposite a feather. This is what we must do in our lives. Weigh the things we have on our to-do list against our values, our desires. We must determine what we actually need to be doing, and what is just really out of balance. When we have clarity, we can adjust. But first, we must become aware. When I pull this card, I know that it’s time to look at what I’m doing, how I feel when I’m doing it and adjust.
