Oh, such fun on my desk this Summer Solstice day! I am playing with these new cards, and writing in the accompanying diary/journal. It's VERY expensive new (retail £22.00!), but I bought this still-sealed, 2015 version for a few pennies, to see if I like it...
I am loving this Summer Solstice spread! And the simple graphics, the round shape, the earthy colour palette, and the fact there's no need for a book of explanations (the 'meaning' are written on the cards themselves in a lovely, simple font) are all BIG pluses in this deck.
I'm happy to be reminded today that
this is the solstice, a time of stillness. While my outer self is bathing in light, I turn inward for a moment. It is too hot for reflection – but it isn’t too hot just to be. And I remember that, really, I don’t spend much time just “being.”

Like many others, I'm struggling in this heat - hands and feet are permanently swollen, the eczema keeps threatening to rear its ugly head again - but I have clean water, a home to shelter me, and I have time and space to just be...
And thank you for all the comments and good wishes last week - all went well with the service on Sunday (although, yet again I cried... a legacy of the stroke - all my emotions are so close to the surface - but the congregation were very understanding); and we had a busy, fun weekend with both kids home to enjoy Father's Day with their dad :D
