Holiday Magick with the Four Aces
The winter festival time can be stressful, even for Pagans. Some honor their family’s holiday traditions with a bit of discomfort. Others are caught up in the responsibilities of cooking, baking, gifting and visiting like everyone else.
Whatever you celebrate this time of year, tarot can help you make it more joyful, more inspiring and more fun.
All you need are the Four Aces.
You can use the Aces in a ritual for holiday sanity.
You can meditate with the Aces to relieve holiday stress and offer creative inspiration.
You can focus on the images of the Four Aces to remind you that the holidays can be a time of wonderful new beginnings.
You can bake pies, cakes or cookies and decorate them with the images of the Aces.
You might even want to get a miniature deck or print out the Aces on study cardboard. You can punch holes in the top and hang them on your Yule tree!
Each Ace is the essence, source and beginning of one of the Four Elements. Each element is helpful as we celebrate the holidays.
