Last night we began Yule season with Mother’s Night Dream. What were your dreams about? What was the theme? If you would like to review yesterday’s activity you can review the blog – here.
The card that I drew from Ciro Marchetti’s Legacy of the Divine Tarot was — The Empress. (If you missed our Beyond World’s show on The High Priestess and The Empress, you can always listen to it in the archives)
Empress Keywords: Nurturing, creation, birth, pregnancy, abundance, mothering, the adult woman principle.
I was rather shocked when I pulled the Empress card. Last night my dream was about finding a baby left out in the cold on the street. I was searching desperately for the parents, but could not find them. I eventually took the baby into my home and started feeding it and taking care of it. In addition, I remember my cat being in the dream as well.
So, what would this reflect about the New Year? Babies in dreams are reflective of new projects, new beginnings, new opportunities, and things that need to be nourished and nurtured. This dream could indicate something new that is coming into my life (hopefully not a literal baby), or the possibilities of fertile relationships and financial abundance. It is rather exciting!
Day 2 – Winter Solstice
Today, the Sun will move out of the sign of Sagittarius and into the sign of Capricorn. Capricorn has to do with structures and organizing principles. It is ambitious,practical, serious, and masterful. It is worth noting that on Winter Solstice, in many religious systems, it is the time when the new Sun God is born. It is not without mistake that Jesus, Mithras, and Dionysus were all “said” (there are tons of questions about Jesus) around the solstice.
Although most of us do not like structure, order, and rules; we are granted a unique opportunity during the month of Capricorn to begin to build structures for the coming year. We throw these under interesting umbrellas such as New Year’s resolutions, but the fact remains that something is going to begin in January, and we now have the ability to map that course and destiny for ourselves. You can become your own master, and create a new game of living. Again, it is rather exciting!
Shuffle the cards thoroughly and ask yourself – what do I need to do to be more individual in the coming year? Take the card out and write it on your solstice paper next to your dream card.
The Card I drew for myself — The 5 of Coins — letting go of self doubt! What card did you draw?
