Make a Wish

Do you make a lot of wishes? I do. I wish on many things - I see omens and signs and wish on them; I make a wish when I'm stirring the Christmas pudding. I wish on a full moon to bring me luck, a waning moon to take things away and a new moon for fresh beginnings.
This weekend has been a wonderful occasion to observe the Geminid meteor shower. Last night the Mr and I stood in our frosty garden, glass of wine in hand, and watched a fabulous display of shooting stars. I wished on them too. One meteor was so bright and whooshed for so long, I couldn't believe there wasn't an accompanying noise (although I did squeal a bit!).

I wish mostly for things that are gloomy or negative to become happy and positive in my life and the lives of those I love. I imagine these thoughts travelling through space and time, sprinkling good juju with abundance. I've probably wished on the odd satellite or two, but hey!

In the Tarot, The Star offers guidance and healing. It's a magical card full of hope and promise. When our lives aren't quite going to plan or our dreams are taking their time to materialise, we need to remember to find our star, our wish, and keep it in sight. Trust that the desires we send out are sparkling and swirling, before finding their way back home to us.

I like physical representations of stars too, and I've made these silver star charms to scatter good luck this Yuletide.
I certainly believe that wishes come true, so .... make a wish! 

'Til next time,

  1. I love your charms. They are so beautiful Margo
    This is a very hopeful wintery post. Here the nights are also cold and clear with an abundance of stars to wish upon
    I am going to make a "wish upon a star" list in my journal

    1. Thank you Ellen, and here's wishing your trapped nerve all better :-)

  2. Hi Margo! How beautiful and positive post! Thank you! Congratulations for your wonderful stars! Muchas Estrellas!!!!!

    1. Thank you Las Magas! I love making these little stars :-)

  3. My favourite card and a very lovely deck :) I can't say that I make many wishes tbh, it just leaves the door open to disappointment. To paraphrase Yoda "Do. Or do not. There is no wish!" Or in the words of Captain Picard "Make it so!" :)

    1. Oh I love both of those quotes - two very wise souls indeed!
