The card is from the Hoi Polloi Tarot, which came out in 1972. Fifty years ago there weren't the number of decks to choose from that there are now. I think the Rider-Waite-Smith deck was hard or expensive to get back then, and this was an alternative before US Games gained the rights to use Pamela Colman-Smith’s beautiful designs. I rediscovered my parents' deck - along with some dowsing rods and a few books on esoteric subjects - when I was going through their things after they died. It isn't a deck I use often, but when I do I am very aware that their hands were the last ones to touch them before my own, and it as if I hear their voices guiding me in my reading.
In the book that comes with the set, the divinatory meanings is: "People who are in need in the midst of plenty. It also stands for material problems, either because of want or some other cause." That can certainly be an apt depiction of our world at the moment. So many people are struggling and in need.
However, the description also says it depicts people who "have not yet grasped the inner light." Although the image could be a Christian one, as the stained glass window could be that of a church, on the Winter Solstice the message to me is about the light of the returning sun. From now on, the days will start to get longer and the nights shorter. There is cold and hardship all around us now, but sun is growing in power each day and offers hope for the future. Have faith that spring and summer will return, and easier days lie ahead as the wheel of the year turns.
One of my resolutions for 2020 was to do some form of divination at least once a month and blog about it. I've been doing that partly by drawing tarot and divinations cards and blogging about them regularly. Below are links to some of my earlier readings:
