The space we give ourselves and others to be divinely human.
I have been thinking about the word “grace”. What is grace? It’s a prayer we say before a meal, but it’s so much more. To be graceful is to not be clumsy. To be gracious is to be kind and understanding toward the people around us. We feel grace from a Higher Power when we consider our own failings yet feel the blessings of Spirit in our lives nonetheless.
Grace is something we feel is afforded us by Spirit. I am considering the idea that we can afford each other, and ourselves, a bit of spiritual grace as well.
How can one be gracious to oneself? Perhaps it involves being kind in what we say to ourselves about ourselves. Perhaps we can forgive ourselves our past mistakes, just as we believe a Higher Power forgives us.
Sometimes grace is the space we give ourselves and each other to be human. Grace is what happens when we don’t let ourselves get stuck in regret and anger.
Like any spiritual energy, when we nurture grace, grace multiplies. When we offer grace to ourselves and others, very often we will receive the grace we need, from others, and from the Universe.

Grace in a Tarot Card
Which tarot cards might express a sense of grace? Here are a few that come to my mind.
Ace of Cups
The Ace of Cups can discuss the open and healed heart chakra, and the high vibration of unconditional love. This is the grace that we give to ourselves and each other. This grace is the love comes to us from Spirit.
Four of Pentacles
Although this is the card of the miser, it is also the card of self-care and good boundaries, which is the grace we provide for ourselves.
The High Priestess
The High Priestess can describe a state of peaceful balance and serenity – the calm from knowing we are blessed to be in a state of grace.
Judgment can allow us to wipe the slate clean of the past and get a true fresh start. Here, grace comes in the form of forgiveness and closure.
If you are in need of grace, meditate on these cards to help you achieve that sense of inner peace. If these cards appear in a reading, consider that they might be speaking to the energy of spiritual grace.

The Week in Review
This week I shared a post on my Dark Forest blog. As you might imagine, I spend a good amount of time helping people get through relationship breakups. Over the years, I have seen some common themes appear in the cards. I share some of them in “Seven Ways to Heal From a Breakup that Don’t Involve Ice Cream”.
From Around the Web
This week I thought it would be fun to share some posts that combine tarot and Christmas.
From Biddy Tarot, here is a Christmas Tarot Spread.
From Angelorum, we have a Christmas Presence Spread.
Tarot Avenue has shared the story of A Christmas Carol, told in tarot cards!
