But the fire is so delightful: Runes for December

Any thoughts or feelings of scarcity could easily be amplified over the next month. This will be a time of taking in inventory, both of physical possessions and of beliefs. It is time to start being honest with yourself about why you belief what you believe. “Because I always have”  or “That’s just what I was taught” isn’t going to work anymore. It may not be easy to do so much internal work during the season that requires the most pleasantries of the year, but it’s going to happen one way or another. So you may as well excuse yourself from the less essential activities,  stay in when you aren’t 100% excited about going out, and just remember to give yourself the time as space you need this month.

The biggest person you will be up against is yourself. Emotional reactions may be a bit exaggerated as little things trigger deeper emotions and help draw out things you haven’t thought about in a long long time. It’s not the current situation, but one that had a similar feel. So allow the feelings to happen, and then trace the emotion back to the issue that is ready to be resolved.

This is not a time to be extravagant or prove anything to those around you. It’s best to conserve both physical resources and your energy. The simpler the holiday season, the easier it will be to navigate this time around. There will be better times to go overboard.
