There is much to celebrate in February, but the big hitter seems to always be Valentine's Day. In the past, I have used the image of a "healed" 3 of Swords from the Universal Waite Tarot deck (published by U.S. Games Systems, Inc.) to symbolize healing of wounds as part of a holiday of the heart. Healing and the repair of broken relationships that should be repaired. This year, the images are more romantic, featuring the 2 of Cups couple from The Rider Tarot. Frequently in readings in which a relationship issue is identified, this card appears and suggests to the querent that despite the differences, healing and repair can come by focusing on what each person has in common with the other at an ethereal level rather than just the physical or superficial ones. Love and forgiveness, whether that other person is nearby in person, far away, or passed away. The burden of loving and forgiving starts with each of us and every day not just what is done on a single day once a year.
Of course, another reason to celebrate this month is the announcement of the winner of the January Contest!
Congratulations, Steve Spellane of Orlando, Florida!
Steve's answer was randomly selected from all the entries that had correctly guessed that the card clip was from the Reflection (or Hermit) card from the Sirian Starseed Tarot by Patricia Cori. Don't forget to enter this month's contest for a chance to win in this month's contest!
Enjoy the issue and have a happy (warm and safe) February!
