A Candlemas feeling overcame me today. I have put down the last Christmas decorations. Rudolph the Reindeer –a present from my daughter– was still there, standing silently, its lights out. And all our Christmas cards were still in the hall. The story is that goblins come for each needle that is there after Candlemas. So I really needed to take everything down.

I also did the Candlemas reading from Christine Jette’s Tarot for all Seasons. I love this reading and I love this festival dearly. But I was disappointed in the deck I used,the Animals Divine Tarot. I must promise myself never to use it again for these occasions. The cards make me tired.

I show two cards from the spread here. The first one is pulled for the position of ‘Strength’. For that I have pulled Two of Swords. The card shows something which I need to confront to get strong. Without going into details about my situation, the card shows me as a sparrow that feels itself entangled, not able to fly up and soar the heavens. To feel strong again, I need to rise up above the situation I am entangled in, find a constructive manner to deal with the situation. 


The other card I show here is the card for the position which shows what needs healing in order to obtain the desired strength of card 1. Three of Pentacles, which shows a tiger stepping into the water, showed me this. The message for me is that I should be more direct in my situation. 


It is interesting that to be able to fly up, I need to go down, step in to the water.
