One of the earliest forms of magic we learn is to wish upon a star. That, and making a wish and blowing out our birthday candles.
At this time of year, I am always attracted to Star cards. They almost always seem to hold so much hope and promise. They fill my heart with wishes for peace on Earth and goodwill towards all.
And I have less altruistic impulses as well. I wish for mundane things…I love getting and giving presents.
So, as we celebrate our various holidays and give thanks for the return of the Light, what do hope for? What do you wish for?
One thing I’ve wished for is the arrival of a special deck I’ve helped create. It’s called the Pagan Cats Tarot and will be available in January. Here is the Star card from that deck.
