In that simplicity, he bears the seal of Nature and of Art; in that innocence, he signifies the restored world.
~ Arthur E. Waite, The Pictorial Key to the Tarot – The Sun
Today, I have been collaborating with some of the wisest souls in the Tarot world, and we have decided to invite everyone to join us in a Solstice spell/ ritual / celebration / prayer on behalf of the Tarot itself.
In other words, this is a special call to all who love the Tarot and want to join in a global magical working on its behalf. That means YOU! And please – invite everyone you can think of!
Our intention is: “With the Great Solstice Turning of the Seasons, we honor the spirit of the Tarot and all those — past, present and future — who unselfishly support its gifts of illumination, healing, and inspiration for all.”
Whether the Solstice is the darkest, longest night for you (if you are in the lands below the Equator), or whether this marks the zenith of the Sun’s journey and the beginning of Summer (in the Northern Hemisphere), your good energy is asked for!
Wherever you are, preferably at High Noon (but whenever is convenient) on Tuesday, June 21st, we ask you to take a moment to send these thoughts out into the world. If you want to create a full-blown ritual, please do, and tell us about it here if you’d like. If you can’t do this on the 21st, then please add your energy at noon, local time, on the 22nd.
In whatever way is right for you, please see the Tarot and all who love it and all who love them, bathed in the joyful light of the Sun. Imagine all the amazing people, famous and unknown, across the centuries who have given of themselves, nurturing the spirit of the Tarot with their art, their words, their service to one another.
And, since it’s Solstice, you might also consider the messages of The Sun card of the Tarot, such as how it freely gives its gifts of joy, renewal, happiness, and melts away all hidden agendas and fears. How it calls forth the Divine Sublime that shines in us all.
May the soul of the Tarot and all who are in its service, join together in a generous, joyful, creative harmony.
Spread the word! Blessed be!
