The Tarot of the Northern Winter Solstice

The celebration of the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere has ancient roots…

The Moon: Hidden Depths

Going back thousands of years, possibly tens of thousands of years, maybe even hundreds of thousands of years, into prehistory.

And it’s not hard to see why!

December 21st marks this…

Wheel of Fortune: A turning point

It’s when the Earth pauses in its tilt away from the Sun, before heading back towards the light.

This is a truly significant moment in the year and would have had deep meaning for our ancestors.

The Earth turns towards the light just before the northern hemisphere is plunged into the bleakness of the most challenging winter months, when the weather is freezing and food scarce…

Five of Pentacles: Hard times

The winter solstice commemoration was created to remind us during the darkest of times that the world is turning back towards the light.

It is a celebration of this…

The Star: Hope

And is the true origins of the Christmas festival we now celebrate at this time of the year.

Jesus is another symbol of hope for us.

Of a way we can move forward towards the light.

Just as Tarot is too!
