You’re almost there, the holidays are almost over. It’s time to check in with yourself now that the bulk of the rush is past. Sift through the expectations, obligations, and felicitations to recenter your spirit.

Seven of Air, Dark Goddess Tarot

Laverna from the Dark Goddess Tarot reminds us that there’s nothing wrong with thinking of ourselves from time to time.  Often we forget to check in with our own needs, particularly where emotional labor is concerned- this can be particularly taxing around the holidays.

Be intentional about indulging yourself today, remember to be selfish-that’s not necessarily a bad word! We are interconnected with each other, yes. However, for our communities to flourish, we must thrive individually first.
