It’s time to welcome joy to our hearts, friends to our home, and prosperity to our new year!
This is the season for welcoming. We welcome friends and relatives to holiday gatherings. We welcome in a new year. At the winter solstice we welcome the return of the sun. At Christmas we welcome the birth of a divine child.
It’s a good time to think about the things we want to welcome into our lives and consider what we must do to make that happen. How do we welcome wellness, or love, or prosperity?
Just as we welcome anyone or anything, we try to be open, and warm, and ready to give and receive.
Maybe it’s another example of ‘as above, so below’. When we open our hearts to welcome healing, love and divine energy, we create the energy that makes welcome into our lives the things that meet our needs and desires.
May you welcome all good things this holiday season!
See You at Holiday Open House this Sunday!
We have a great group of volunteers ready to offer tarot readings, palmistry, astrology, reiki and other modalities this Sunday at Unity of Stuart, from 2-6 pm. All you need to do is bring some nonperishable food items and come let us pamper you!
If you would like to see some pictures of previous Open House events, visit my website and look for the button for ‘Galleries’.
Years ago, when we first started Holiday Open House, I was the only reader, and my goal was simply to offer free readings to the community as a gesture of holiday cheer. Over the years I had other readers join me, and we decided to make it a food-raiser for those in need.
Eventually, I chose to host the event and let my friends, colleagues and students offer their services, allowing me the opportunity to greet and thank each participant.
We have hosted this event in three different states, and many different locations. I am excited for our new location at Unity of Stuart.
Please, if you are in the area this Sunday, stop by anytime between 2 and 6 pm. Have a session with our volunteers. If you have time, spend the day and sit with everyone!
Four Cards That Speak of Home
The song says, “there’s no place like home for the holidays”! But which tarot cards signify home in a reading? Which are the cards we can use in tarot manifestation work to cultivate a happy home? Here are four of my favorites.
Ten of Pentacles
As the official traditional ‘castle card’, the Ten of Pentacles can speak of real estate transactions, a family home, or a home in which you take great pride.
Ten of Cups
Known as the ‘happy family’ card, the Ten of Cups can speak of romance, and also a loving family home.
Six of Cups
No card speaks of a return to, or longing for, a childhood home as poignantly as the Six of Cups.
Four of Wands
Traditionally a card that predicts marriage, the Four of Wands represents the hearth-fire, the warm, welcoming home, and the celebrations we share together in that place.
The Week in Review
This week I shared a blogpost of interest to serious tarotists about tarot archetypes and interpretations. Read Archetypes in Action: How Tarot Updates Itself.
From Around the Web
Since so many of us will be cooking to welcome folks into our homes, I thought it would be fun to share some posts about food and tarot.
Here is a recipe for Arwen’s Deviled Eggs, inspired by Major Arcana 15.
