I've taken up my own challenge and I have cleared my altar up to three items: one big white candle, one a white clothe, a tumbled Labradorite, and the Druidcraft tarot. Until so far I am enjoying it very much. My altar radiates simplicity and peacefulness. No distraction from all kinds of little symbols and decorations. For now, I like it.
Today’s card is the Seven of wands from the Druidcraft tarot. This is a fitting card to pull for the holiday season. My initial impression is to defend my own boundaries mentally as well as physically, during these busy weeks. But when I look a bit closer maybe these men are not approaching to attack the guy in his refuge but merely to share their ideas and to ask for his help, Maybe this apparent attack exists only in my mind, triggered by my need for rest and solitude. Perhaps I should try to and listen first and decide how I want to spend my time and energy, always remembering to keep quite a bit for myself too. So today I will try to listen attentively before thinking an defensive NO! Defending boundaries is not only about killing all the trespassers but more to distinct friend from foe
