Your Twelve Days of Christmas: Omen Tradition

Christmas has passed, but magic lingers in the air. It’s a fortuitous time to pay attention.

The Tarot Lady recently shared a blog by Briana Saussy that inspired me to pursue a new practice in the days after Christmas. I recommend you read it for details on why I’m now writing down an omen a day for the next 12 days.

I hope you’ll take advantage of this fun exercise in re-imagining your identity and your world.

Omen one: When I came home from my Christmas family celebrations, I opened my bag of cinnamon bears. I often wait until days, even weeks have passed, but tonight I pulled my first bear since the last bag (always a gift from my parents), and lo and behold!


Symbolic of a mama bear and her cub. This will represent Jan 1. The birth of a new, chewy and sweet year? Noted.

Bonus omen: I shared a different picture of this yummy emblem with friends via text and thought about making this blog. Then I found another something special to include when I jaunted over to Christiana Gaudet’s Tarot Topics.

This interview by James Wells with Carrie Paris not only paints a lovely picture of why she became a diviner, but how we can use our every day world to activate our psyche/soul each day by divining our world.

Based on this photo, this post looked like a humble snack of holiday treat omen tradition. But no … the Universe insisted the 12 days of Christmas tradition blog turned into a quick sampling of Tarot experts and ideas to fire up 2015.

Nourish your intuition. Enjoy the synchronicity of your days and your nights!

Thanks for the read.
