How to Survive Christmas using the Tarot

Written by Toni Allen

Continued from page 1

The Emperor: A powerful father figure who likes to have his family gathered more for show than love. Gift type: Something expensive! It need not be large but must have taste, quality and usability. This man has not built his life up on trivia. Does he need a new wallet, or set of golf clubs? A years membership to his club?

The Page of Batons: Of allrepparttar tarot court cards this page isrepparttar 122257 one who symbolisesrepparttar 122258 child. When upright it is a capable child who enjoys having a go at most things, but when reversedrepparttar 122259 Page of Batons depictsrepparttar 122260 kind of child who is not very self confident and constantly requires help and reassurance, and is prone to temper tantrums. Gift type: Depending on agerepparttar 122261 Page of Batons will enjoy most toys which have an element of exploration and fun, whether a construction type toy or game. However,repparttar 122262 reversed page, needs something less complicated which does not require such a long attention span. Musical instruments which give instant gratification would suit, as well as any toy which speaks back, either as a learning aid or simply for fun.

Withrepparttar 122263 people comerepparttar 122264 problems. Here are a few simple examples of which cards can show typical Christmas problems.

The Three of Swords: Withrepparttar 122265 three of swords tarot card we find envy, jealousy and rage. Anything which isn't love. Upsets all round. Often overrepparttar 122266 festive season this can be aroused byrepparttar 122267 attitude of "He/she has a bigger, better gift than me," or by excessive alcohol. (seerepparttar 122268 nine of swords below) Arguments always abound withrepparttar 122269 three of swords.

The Four of Cups: This card when upright symbolises being rejected, which can be triggered by feeling left out or simply by not being invited! When reversedrepparttar 122270 four of cups tarot card represents, amongst other things,repparttar 122271 need for a hug and physical attention. This is not sexual attention, and therefore, especially when next torepparttar 122272 Page of Batons, will depict thatrepparttar 122273 children need playing with with their new toys.

One card which can symbolise various Christmas difficulties isrepparttar 122274 nine of swords. This card is where stress has stress and situations potentially get so complex and fraught that some folk will start to seriously hitrepparttar 122275 bottle. Drinking is generally accepted aroundrepparttar 122276 festive season but when alcohol intake becomes excessive, nastiness, bad feeling and sometimes even violence can ensue.

Not everyone has a large family or group of friends to spend Christmas with. In a reading you will often findrepparttar 122277 four of swords representing aloneness. Maybe for somerepparttar 122278 isolation represents a pleasant type of solitude away fromrepparttar 122279 potential arguments and bad feelings that family gathering can so often instigate. For others it represents loneliness and invokes feelings of desperation and despair. Ifrepparttar 122280 separation from society and socialness is not chosen but forced uponrepparttar 122281 individual through unpleasant circumstances thenrepparttar 122282 Star card reversed may well be seen next torepparttar 122283 four of swords.

And what of all those folk who like to bunk off to freedom forrepparttar 122284 festivities?

The World: Quite literally escaping intorepparttar 122285 larger world of opportunities.

The Eight of Cups: Envisaging something better far, far away.

The Sun: For those who like to escaperepparttar 122286 cold and bask on a beach.

The Knight of Cups: This is an intrepid traveller, eager to seek out new places, people and situations. Most likely to spend Christmas climbing a mountain or sitting painting it…from a tent with a view!

For many people Christmas is a pleasure, a time to drawrepparttar 122287 family together and be close to friends. For others it's a lot of fuss and bother for one day. The Six of Coins reversed symbolises overspending, so remember to budget carefully, takerepparttar 122288 preparations in your stride…and whatever you do…enjoy a very wonderful Christmas day.
