Wildwood COTD : Major #20, The Great Bear

And so today, The Great Bear comes bounding towards us, calling upon us to Judge and be Judged. This is the Judgement in other decks and in this Wheel of the Year, he / she sits at the Midwinter Solstice, the usual period of time for inner reflection.

Major #20 ~ The Great Bear

However, we’ve gone past that particular point in the year and it’s too far away for the next one, so, my immediate thought is this: What do we need to assess and judge upon, right now? Are you changing the way you want to? Does it feel right? Are you being honest with yourself and with others? Really? I know I am not some of the time, it is human nature to kid ourselves and pretend it’s not happening.

The Great Bear though, is not going to let us kid ourselves any longer, or carry on pretending. Lets leave that to the children in their childhood, shall we?

So for today, what are you being called to judge or what are you judging yourself on? Come on now, no need to be shy. That bear is not going to go away and you know, that is the key. Knowing that things are going to happen regardless of your fear, is one way to face up to it.

I am here if and when you need me.

    Hi Arwen. Thank you!! :cuddles:
    I am in love with this deck too… When I got it and did my interview spread, it was like I had been waiting for this deck all along, but I didn’t know it, until I had it. Does that make any sense?? 😉

    Absolutely. I felt that way about my Gaian. It was like coming home.
