How to Do A
"Winter Solstice"
Tarot Reading

The winter solstice is an important date in the annual astrological calendar. It marks the point in the Earth's rotation when the Earth's axis is tilted at its furthest point away from the Sun.

In practical terms, the winter solstice is shortest day of the year.

In astrological terms, the winter solstice is the day on which the Sun enters Capricorn. It marks both the darkest day of the year, and heralds the beginning of longer days, and the slow rebirth of light.

This pivotal day reminds us to take note of what has been frozen and stil. We are also reminded of what will regrow around us and within us as the days grow longer. Most importantly, the winter solstice reminds us to look within ourselves for our own source of light and energy, to carry us through the dark time.

This 5-card Tarot reading is meant to be performed on or near the time of the solstice. It explores not only what is hidden in the frozen darkness, but also what force of light exists within ourselves.
