A Joyful Solstice to you!

in Gratitude, Wheel of the Year, Yule

Dear Readers,

As I lay in bed this morning before dawn, enveloped in darkness, I reflected on the year gone by. I thought about all the traveling I did this year and how many lovely people I met, from Santa Fe to New York to Lake Ontario. I thought about the way we chatter on Facebook, and of the deep conversations we have on the Gaian Tarot Circle teleseminars.

I thought about all the notes I received from those of you who love the Gaian Tarot and have reached breakthroughs in your personal lives because of it. I thought about the ones who took my e-courses and workshops this year, and how grateful I am that we could go so deep with the material together.

On this Solstice day, when (the legends say) the Great Mother gives birth to Child of Wonder, who is the bringer of hope and the promise of summer — on this day, I give thanks for each and every one of you.

My prayer for you is that, this coming year, you will find ways to nurture yourself and your dreams. As my friend CrowsFoxes says, “May our gift to ourselves this Winter Solstice be the awakening of our most authentic selves.” Blessed be!

Love & Blessings to you & yours,

Thoughtful, sparkling comments. . .

    Blessed Solstice to you Joanna!
    I only recently discovered your work and have not yet looked deeply into what you offer but I have already ordered the Gaian Tarot from Amazon. I look forward to exploring more in the new year.
    Much love,
