Tarot --

I-Ching - 11 Peace (Heaven below Earth): Peace is sometimes called prosperity and that's what you have, an abundance of still, quiet calm around you. Share it with others and enjoy the peace of this time now for it won't last.

Yule Day 6

Lunar phase - waxing crescent in sidereal Capricorn. On the Mountain Climber's Moon, we attempt the impossible...It is especially useful to try something that you have avoided because you were told that you, or the sort of person that people assume you are, would just never be able to handle that. Whatever you do, do it without help...Don't rely on luck - plan and prepare, train and attack.

Tarot --

I-Ching - 15 Humility (Mountain below Earth): By being tolerant you may find the help you need. Displaying humility isn't a loss of face, merely a loss of your own ego. Do all things in moderation and maintain equilibrium and harmony.

Yule Day 3

Tarot - 2 of Pentacles (Saturn / Uranus in Capricorn). Change. Cycles. What changes do you need to make to continue the success of the previous day, to ensure success for the year? Balance is needed. Life is continuous; if you make a mistake you can't stop. Go with the flow and make necessary corrections.

I-Ching - 24 Returning (Thunder below Earth): Everything has a cycle, and this one, for you, is starting again. This time it has renewed vigor and enthusiasm. It is a new beginning and you have learnt a lot from the past.

Winter Solstice / Yule
Yule Day 2

Lunar phase - New moon in sidereal Sag. On the Gypsy's Moon, we go outside and experience new cultures. Ideally we should be experiencing cultures that stretch our ability to accept, that force us to confront ourselves and our own biases...Don't succumb to the temptation to just read about something - actually go breathe air you've never breathed on ground you've never put your feet on.

Tarot - Ace of Pentacles. Earth (Capricorn) of Earth (Winter). Internal and external wealth and success. Manifestation in the physical sense. Increase in material things.

I-Ching - 2 Earth (Earth below Earth): This is a card of acceptance. Bide your time and wait for others to make their move. You need to be strong but devoted. Success is certain if you follow your heart and don't try to force things.
And so the longest night begins...
