I just wanted to give a shout out to all those peeps who are struggling during this festive season. When there’s someone missing at your dining table or when the holidays leave you feeling bereft and alone Christmas can be the saddest time of year. It’s especially hard when someone you love has died near Christmas. The two events can become entwined in your mind. And if you’re struggling with mental health issues forced family celebrations combined with a lack of support and structure (because even your carers are on holidays) can make it hard for you to cope.
The Five Of Cups card reminds us that no matter what or who we’ve lost (the three spilled cups in front), we still have love in our life, if only we’ll turn around and look (the two upright cups behind). It’s a great card to meditate on if this time of year is hard for you.
