5-Card Yuletide Spread
In the Yule BlogHop we were asked to do a 5-card spread for the following questions:
1) What gift would you give the world if you could? The Lovers
Love remains the greatest power of all. With loving comes forgiveness and acceptance of one another’s differences. If our world leaders could operate from love and acceptance rather than greed and blood-thirst this would be a much better world to live in.
2) What gift would you want from the world? Page of Pentacles
The Page of Pentacles represents the student to me. This is very fitting as I see myself as a perpetual student learning from the world at all times.
3) What gift have you gotten that has brought you joy? 2 of Cups
For me the Two of Cups speaks of equality and mutual respect. I have finally honoured my inner artist, the intuitively creative me that is well represented by the Cups suit, by enrolling at Art School at the mature age of 51. I’ve loved art since I was a little girl, and I’ve wanted to ‘do’ good art since just about forever. It is never too late to honour oneself and to treat ourselves as deserving equals. With Art I can express myself.
4) What gift have you given that has brought you joy? Queen of Swords
The written and spoken word. I’ve been fortunate that I had a very busy tarot practice until quite recently. It brought me great joy to witness the healing and peace that my readings often brought others. I’ve also just completed my first contracted book for publication by Schiffer Publishers, a how-to manual for my LeNewbie Lenormand deck. Hopefully my written words in this publication will be a gift for those who are new to the oracle.
5) What is the last thing that you would like to share about this season? Knight of Pentacles
For me, this card is all about responsibility and planning ahead. I guess I’d say that good planning and foresight will assist each of us to meet our responsibilities toward ourselves and others; not only over the season, but into 2015 too.
Happy holidays to us & ours, including all our fur (and feathered) babies.
