My first thought upon seeing this card was to relate it to the upcoming Festival of Lights that we celebrate each December. No matter what we call the holiday — Christmas, Hanukkah, Solstice, Diwali, Kwanzaa, Yule — it’s all about lighting up the darkness. And this mesmerizing Fire Spinner is definitely doing that. Craig and I have gone up to Vancouver, BC several times to be part of their annual Solstice Lantern Festival, and a highlight is always seeing the fire dancers on Solstice Night. There’s something so mesmerizing about watching the flames spin and swoop around.
This week — this month, really — I am spinning and swooping into an intense creative period of writing/editing/rewriting the Gaian Tarot companion book. Hours are getting longer and the writing more intense as my deadline approaches.
Here’s what I wrote last week about the Explorer of Fire:
When you get this card in a reading . . .
You are playing with fire. You love fast paced, high energy situations — taking risks makes you feel more alive. You love entertaining and dazzling others, as you share your enthusiasm and let the sparks fly. Your creativity and eroticism revitalizes you as well as others around you. You inspire others when you dare to charge fearlessly into a dangerous situation. You take a stand and move quickly on issues that are dear to your heart. Be bold! Now is the time to take courageous action.
Affirmation: I am on fire with passion and creativity.
And what does this card say to you, dear Readers?
