Madonna del "Magnificat" (detail)

New Year

I find these first days in January difficult. I long back for the holidays again, the lights of Christmas in the darkness, and the festive days during that time. Days are dreary now. The whole year lies before me, with all its days that have to be filled in, a tiring business life is. I’ve asked, now he end of this day is near, for my blessing of the day. 

I have pulled Three of Wands from the Fantastic Menagerie Tarot. 


Two figures, a hawk and a rhinoceros, are looking through a telescope. This card is about new adventures, about planning and expanding, building on what already is there. Today Aline (she likes to make beautiful typed things) and I talked about scanning in all my lessons about the Majors. Ah well, not all, but the ones I teach this winter. That is a big step, a new adventure, but building on what already have, because if it does not work out, I can always do it the old-fashioned way.

I am still working on the Inner Child course for therapist. Slowly I am getting along, writing down the spreads I have developed and explaining them. That is expanding, however slowly.
