There is so much we could say about Kislev, but I think the spiritual focus is an important one to focus on this year. Within this system I’ve been developing this season is the one where we naturally focus on our connections to the Divine through creative expression.
For me, fire (אֵשׁ) represents the element of personal connection to G!(d)dess and water (מַיִם) is the element of personal creative expression. Put together we have a season where we can rebuild our personal Divine connection through the act of creativity. As seen through the images from The Transparent Tarot below (L-R), the changes and harvest of Chesvhan (Death card) are transformed and bridged in Kislev (Temperance card), but can also trap us in Tevet (Devil card) if we are not careful.
Imagine taking this perspective to the gift giving of the season!
Suddenly, it’s about being creative to recharge your personal bridge to the G!(d)dess.
