June 21st marks a turning point in the year.
It’s when the Earth takes a pause in its tilt towards or away from the Sun. It appears to take stock of its progress, before moving in a new direction.
We can do the same!
If it’s the Winter Solstice where you are, it’s a good time to do this…
Two of Pentacles: Weigh up what you care about most
Then you can…
The Magician: Set goals for the year ahead
The Winter Solstice is Nature’s New Year!
If it’s the Summer Solstice where you are, stop and do this…
Seven of Pentacles: Reflect on your progress
The Summer Solstice is a good time to celebrate your achievements, and fine-tune your goals for the second half of the year.
But what does the word solstice mean?
Page of Swords: Learning about words
The word solstice comes from Latin. Sol meaning Sun and sistere meaning to stand still. Originally, we thought the Sun leaned towards us, instead of us towards it.
In celebration of the solstice, I’ve just submitted the latest chapter of The Tarot Teaclub to Amazon for publication. I’ll let you know when it’s available to read.
Happy Solstice everyone!
