The Death Deck Diaries – Time Well Spent

the death deck time well spent

Today’s Tarot journaling prompt in the Death Deck Diary series is Time Well Spent. What would you do if you were given a prognosis of six months to live but feel pretty healthy? How would you spend your time?

Using this question as a Tarot journaling prompt, I decided to put the question to my ancestors. How would they want me to spend my time? Let’s face it, they have much better insights into the fleeting nature of life as well as what existing outside time is like. This means they see clearly what types of regrets I can avoid by spending my final six months wisely…

Time Well Spent – A Runic Tarot Reading

I very recently received the 6 of Wands from the Runic Tarot during the Word Prompt challenge I’m currently taking part in on Instagram. In that post, I wrote about how the 6 of Wands is about celebrating life and my achievements through playing more. That meaning still holds here, especially next to the playful and exuberant Page of Wands.

Finally, the 4 of Wands is about looking after and spending time with loved ones, especially my husband with whom I share a loving home.

This guidance couldn’t be more spot-on if it tried! It’s not just guidance for how to spend one’s final six months of life but how to live and celebrate every single, precious day here on Earth.

Further guidance from the runes comes in the form of Eihwaz, the yew tree rune. This is the rune that represents Yggdrasil and puts everything we do here on Earth in the bigger context of all the realms. Being able to take on board the guidance from the Tarot while still maintaining my link to the other realms, is where the sweet spot is for me as a Völva.

By the way, that just brought back the memory of a dream I had last night. I was looking up at the biggest tree I had ever seen and realized it was a yew tree. This, once and for all, solved my dilemma about whether Yggdrasil is an ash tree or a yew tree.

I also feel my ancestors are advising me to spend more time (whatever time I have left) in the company of trees.

What guidance are you getting from this Tarot journaling prompt? I would love to hear from you in the comments!
