Peace of the season to you and yours!

Past card: Sinterklaas, #5

Starting our three card draw is Sinterklaas. This is comparable with the major arcana card, the Hierophant (#5). It's a similar vibe: we're looking at deep wisdom, spirtual knowing. The justices that have come to pass. As we're coming through the end of 2023, this card represents your past. Now is a a good time to reflect on what you've learned, to really consider where you've been, where you've come from over the course of 2023. This card is an invitation to acknowledge your wisdom and consider what your beliefs are now, versus when you started the year.

Past crytstal: Red Goldstone

This is a stone this specifically calling you to think about your material world, your finances, your resources, your home. When it comes to the specific lessons of 2023, what about them really reflected into the world of your resources and material life? Make this a focus as you review the year.

Present card: The Queen of Good Cheer

Next, we have the Queen of Good Cheer. You can compare her to the Queen of Cups. This is a fantastic place to be in the current season! We're going into the holidays, a time when folks are with friends or family, or even just taking a break. The Queen of Good Cheer is bringing you a lot of love and compassion. And also the idea of discernment... such that you won't be fooled in the way you might have been fooled in the past by people who don't have your best interests at heart. This card is reminding you to listen to your intuition when it comes to those around you. Trust hunches.

Present crystal: Unakite

This is the stone of gratitude! It's a lovely match for the energy of the present time and invites you to grateful for the good things that you have. I understand that sometimes this part of the year can be challenging. It depends on where you are and what's happening in your life. During the weeks of celebratory time, consider that there's always something, even something very small, that you could find gratitude for.

Future card: The Child, #0

Looking past the Winter Solstice is the child. It's card zero from the major arcana and you could definitely compare it to The Fool. This is a fantastic way to begin a new year: full of excitement and spontaneity! You're ready for a new adventure, the next steps forward, and you're approaching it with incredible optimism and hope. The Child card means you're really and truly beginning a new cycle in 2024. As we collectively go forward, I hope the energy of the Child card really does bring you a bold, abundant new beginning!

Future crystal: Chrysocalla

Tthis is a stone of continuing to learn. We opened the reading talking about lessons you've gone through and the wisdom you've acquired. All of that is important, but you know what... There's more to come! There's always more to come, and it's okay to acknowledge that you are going to keep learning as you continue on the journey of 2024. No one really knows it all, and being open to the road ahead means being open to what's new and next.
