Tarot Blog Hop, Yulemastide: Happy Holly Daze!

Blog Before Me                                      Master List                          Blog After Me

Welcome to the party, children all, now smile and bow!
I will bring you cheer of holly-daze, right here and now,
I will bring you wine of life of many different kinds,
I will now remove from you each single cord that binds
Your soul to disappointment, your mind to failures past. 
Tonight, in celebration, I bring the joy to last
Throughout the bitter winter, as the Moon on Christmas burns,
To once more give you memory that life always returns.
The snow will melt, the days grow long, the bitter past is gone,
So take a cup of blessing now, and promise to move on
As I dance free before you, Goddess of the Many Ways
That joy will be there for you, through another year of days. 
Drink deep, and laugh, and joke, and dance, and never do forget. 
That I am Life Eternal, and though you're not quite there yet,
The joy of living shall delight you on this longest night,
And through the year to come, comes Joy. So drink, and share delight,
And always recollect this party, for when life gets hard,
There's help with Me, and friends, and family. It's in the cards!

Mabon Blog Hop; What Does Mabon Mean to ME?

Blog Before Me                                  Master Link                              Blog After Me

Mabon is the Second Harvest, the time when what has been grown and harvested comes to fruition. The King of Cups is here, relaxing over his mead, the fruits of his many months of labor. For him it is a time of celebration and rejoicing. So he sits serene, contemplating his harvest, knowing that what he has produced with give joy and comfort to his winter.
