Yule – Winter Solstice – The World

Posted in DruidCraft Tarot, Journal on December 21st, 2009 by Kristine Gazel

Yule – Winter Solstice: – Dec 21st. This card shows us how best to connect to the Light within and without – it symbolizes the Birth of the Sun.

The World
The end of one cyclus – the start of a new. I think that this is about accepting the flow of time, light, and energy, of beginnings and endings of events and epoques. Actually this woman is embraced by light – it is a question of letting it in, letting it shine from within and without.

Actually there is a lot to learn here. In fact it is hard to allow oneself to be enlighted – to allow ones own light to shine freely, and others as well.

Yule – Winter Solstice – 10 of Wands

Posted in DruidCraft Tarot, Journal on December 21st, 2008 by Kristine Gazel

“This card shows us how best to connect to the Light within and without – it symbolizes the Birth of the Sun”.

Ten of Wands.

There is things I have to let go, before I can fully appreciate the Light.

But somehow it has also to do with the end of this cyclus (the shortest day in the year) – and the beginning of something new.
I have to let the burden of the old year off of my shoulders to start a new.
According to the book the tens are connected with the Fool and his mistletoe, The Magician and the Wheel and its “cyclical turning of the wheel of life”.

Funny – in the Tarot Wisdom book by Rachel Pollack the Hermit also symbolizes time, the year getting old in December and limping toward rebrth in January – followed by the Wheel.

As if the cards themselves are pointing to the cyclic nature of the spread and the magic of this time of year for me. As they are saying – be aware of the turning of the wheel and let things go – to let the Light shine.
