Cards and Initial Comments for December
From the Tiny Universal Waite - Ten of Pentacles
Be grateful for the abundance.
Share your riches the more you can.
What multiplies blessings is free giving.
What lightens your moments is the awareness of your impermanence.
From the Rider Waite Tarot - Queen of Cups
This is the card of stillness
The softest thing on earth
Wears away diamond,
What is without substance
Penetrates solid rock,
Herein, I see the Power of non-action.
It's a difficult concept
The strength of stillness.
10 +13 = 23
The Ace of Wands
Finding one's inner and unique values
Take it all.
What is not given
What is happily offered
The spring of love
never runs dry,
not even at times when
have invaded the day.
These waters have always cleansed me
of my pettiness.
would not be glowing
without the price of pain.
There are so many of us who have been through a tough year. Yet, focusing on one's misfortunes and sorrows does nothing but prolong the feeling of helplessness and despair, which is an artificial feeling. For the blessings we have, we, the ones with overall good physical health, the homes, the beloveds, even the PCs, always outnumber what most of our fellow-beings on this planet would ever dream of.
It is important that this month we feel the waters of innocence cleanse us of our petty thoughts, wishes and deeds. It is also important that we remember to wish love and personal fulfillment to all people we know, and these gifts should not be our own definition of what love and personal fulfillment should be like, but theirs.
May we have all taken the valuable lesson this year had in store for us.
