The Cure for the Coming Winter Solstice from

On December 22, 2007 the ensuing dark days arrive, it is a time that traditionally, dating back thousands of years, has been looked upon with dread. The upcoming cold and hard winter , combined with minimal day light, was enough to call upon everyone to unite and prepare. All religions and traditions partake in rituals and ceremonies because of this, just take a look in Wikipedia for a list. Even Christmas rituals have preserved much of the folklore and traditions of local pagan festivals, which were directly tied to the winter Solstice. The traditional belief is that the Winter Solstice represents rebirth or new beginning. Today, we may not need to kill the cattle, prepare dried meats, or grains to hold us over through winter, but we are still subjected to the psychological gloom inflicted by shorter days.

Even in the world of Tarot, this day represents the Close, meaning death and a time for rebirth. This card is scary and can be bad depending on the position and layout, but everyone needs a change, the end of a phase and the start of something new. Out with the old and in with the new. So to get into the spirit of the day, I recommend performing either the "Safeguard Health and Home" or the "Ensure Goal" spells. Also, do a reading to see what is coming your way, this will show up in your"Final Outcome". Finally, it is an absolute must to light up your day with lots of candlelight and love.
