Daily Tarot Reading for 12-21-2017: Thoughts on the Solstice


The card for today is  the Devil. The Devil card is associated with the astrological sign of Capricorn. So it’s no wonder that it shows up today, considering we recently began the Saturn in Capricorn transit, today is the winter solstice (which occurs when the Sun is exactly overhead the Tropic of Capricorn), and tomorrow marks the beginning of the Sun in Capricorn.

Capricorn has the reputation of being a take charge sign, an authority figure like a an employer or a parent. And the Devil card speaks of feeling enslaved or oppressed. However, this feeling of being bound and chained is an illusion. You actually have a choice at all times, even though you may not think so.

So if you have any bad habits or addictions, whether it be to drugs, cigarettes, or coffee, it may not be easy but you can break free of these things. A job you hate? A relationship you hold onto even though you are no longer happy in it? Stuck in a rut simply because that’s the way you’ve always been doing things? No one keeps you in those situations except yourself.

So today — on the darkest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere — dive into the darkness and expel your demons.  And on the day that maintains the light the longest in the Southern Hemisphere, expose your demons to the light where they can be exposed and dealt with.
