Loteria of the Day 07 18 2022
“El Pajaro” “The Bird”
The Loteria card “El Pajaro” references a little bird bouncing around from branch to branch. Liken this little bird to our thoughts and you get a mind that’s unable to rest due to overthinking. Don’t worry incessantly about the parts of your life that are beyond your control. Obsessing over them and trying to make them better can actually do the opposite for your mental health. Instead, try focusing on a new project to keep your mind from slipping into a rut.
What are Mexican Loteria cards?
Originally, Mexican Loteria cards were used in a bingo-like game. They were not used as a divination tool until recently when the main supplier, Don Clemente, made the cards more uniform. The deck, consisting of 54 cards generally depicts art and symbolism present in Mexican culture. These cards are usually aimed at children or for general entertainment, but modern divination researchers, such as Garth Tardy, contributed to their development. Most of my information comes from this website:
I use the Loteria cards as a way of understanding how I can face hurdles in my life. I feel that they compliment the tarot, oracle, and affirmation decks well because they provide a different perspective on the theme of the day.
