Card Reading for Week of December 14, 2020

Nine of Rods, Reversed; the Sun; Eight of Cups, Reversed

Rods are the suit of conflict; the Nine card, in its reversed position, represents adversity, delays, disasters, and ill health (notice the young man’s bandage?). The Sun represents happiness, especially as relates to friends and family, and success. The Eight of Cups is interesting, in that its reversed position is more positive than its upright meaning; upright, it symbolizes giving up one’ efforts, or running away from problems. Reversed, however, it signifies perseverance and success.
Well, here we are. Month ???? of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Still at home, still worried. But there is light on the horizon. Several promising vaccines are in the works, and some are even being administered to doctors, nurses, and others on the first line of health care. Don’t give up. We will get through this!
Many cultures across the Northern Hemisphere celebrate holidays at the time of the Winter Solstice, to recognize that light, literal and spiritual, is never truly absent from the world. Happy Hanukah to my friends who celebrate it, Joyous Yule to my friends who celebrate it, and for those like me, who observe Christmas, may it be Merry and Bright.
