Before I get to the card, I need to tell you that the one drawn is absolutely perfect and appropriate. It has brought me perspective and has helped to mentally set the tone for my weekend. Hopefully it will for you too.
The card for this holiday weekend is from the Shapeshifter Tarot and is:
3 of Cups – Abundance –
This is a time of riches for the body, mind, and soul. This period is perfect for opening up and sharing with others, which brings healing. Spending time with friends and family or celebrating whichever holiday traditions you celebrate helps to connect with contented and loving energies. Take time to tell those whom you care about that you do. Use this energy of abundance to truly connect with other people. This can be family, friends, or simply others who are like minded. As a matter of fact, this is the ideal time to seek out like minded people due to the nature of the energies of this cycle of the year. So, if you haven’t had much success with this for a while be on the lookout.
You will have the perfect opportunity to discover the abundance already in your life as you focus on the people and things which fill you with love and positive feelings. As you really start to see how many blessings you have, you will find that you can expand these feelings and work with this energy to create something new and marvelous, drawing abundance into every part of your life.
No matter where you are and what you are doing this weekend, use the energies of this time of year…the winter solstice…to appreciate all that you have in life. Use some of your time to be still and reflect. Above all, seek simplicity and open your heart. Just as in the natural world, this is the time to settle in contentedly and prepare for the upcoming cycle of new growth and hope.
