New Year’s Eve, Hogmanay – Seven of Pentacles

New Year’s Eve, Hogmanay – Dec 31st. This card shows us how to release the old and let in the new. This relates to both our external lives and our inner being.

Seven of Pentacles
Here is the sickle again, but not as the Moon, but as an actual Tool. A sickle to harvest the fruit of one’s labour.

Sickle and Mistletoe

In this case it seems to be the mistletoe, which I associate with love due to kissing under it at Christmas. Reading at Wikipedia I’m learned that it can be both a poision and an antidote, and that mistletoe bears fruit at the time of the Winter Solstice, the birth of the new year – That is now. I’m now reaping what has been sown in 2009. And looking around, I’m quite happy with what I can harvest.

So this is about appreaciating what has been sowed and patiently waiting for it to be ripe to harvest. And to decide what to start in the new year, and be confident that things are growing at it’s own pace. No rush here.

As for releasing the old, Seven of Pentacles has also – according to the book – to do with clearing unnecessary clutter.

The sickle manifesting as an actual tool tells me that this about going to work. To do and act the things that this spread has told me about.

That is what I’m going to do now, that is how to let the new in.

    Way back in the olden days, people used to kiss under the mistletoe to promote fertility, not love.

    For me, it’s also a powerfully protective plant. I used to pin it up over my door at Yule with a bunch of holly to protect my house. That was back when I lived in Scotland and could get hold of it easily enough.

    I love that you’ve picked up on the sickle as the focus of this card, and how it’s driving your meaning. Very insightful post – thank you!

    Thank you for your comment, Cathy, and for telling me about the mistletoe for fertility, that makes sense.
    I just found it really interesting that the sickle manifested it self as an actual sickle, since I had noticed it several times as the moon in the previous cards. It has to be quite significant for the whole reading.
