Wintermoon 2014

I’ve been very lucky to once again offer tarot readings at the beautiful Wintermoon festival. I wrote about my first time experience last year here. It is truly a slice of paradise, and again, I have relished my time there, both as a tarot reader and as an enthusiast of great music and delicious food. And lets not forget the surrounds!!

Well yes. This year we arrived on site 3 days prior to the festival starting, so we could enjoy the atmosphere and the crystal waters in peace. It was stunning.

As usual, the children gave the whole place a wonderful atmosphere of merriment and simple joy. As for me, I rolled up my sleeves… actually no sleeves, it’s tropical Queensland ๐Ÿ™‚ But boy, was I busy. Which is fantastic, especially to have a couple of clients from last year turn up and give fantastic feedback.

I ran a tarot workshop too, which was only 1.5 hours, so of course not enough! Nonetheless, I managed to pack a whole lot of history, lore, and pictures, and naturally ran out of time for all the things I wanted to do… never mind.

In between all this, I sampledย a bit of shopping, tasted some healthy food, and enjoyed the music.

      Indeed it was Ellen, thank you. He he I try to pick the nicer photos of me – I really am not photogenic, but my partner nails them. I hope to read at Wintermoon as often as possible, it is truly a wonderful energy.

    Hey Monica

    These are great photographs, thanks. It looks like a beautiful place and I always enjoy seeing people’s reading spaces (at home and the make-shift ones we create elsewhere).

    Lovely post, And I really like the festival art and the heart with the birds in.

      Hello ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you! I love seeing other people’s reading nooks as well, for now I don’t even have a dedicated space as we are packing the house for a big move. I’ll have to update with my readings taken in random places for the next month or so… will write a post about it soon.

        That’s a lovely idea. It’s funny because I always think that the makeshift or just general pulls on the coffee-table or wherever are not worthy of a pic, but it is those very ones which I find personally interesting and magical when others share them. Maybe I should start adding something like that to my blog as well.

        Look forward to the post!

      Thank you, highly recommended! (though I don’t think you will see it advertised in the mainstream tourist media). Personally, the ongoing sunshine is the cherry on top ๐Ÿ™‚

    It looks so peaceful and lovely – well done x

    • Monica May 12, 2014 / 3:41 pm

      Thank you Megan, it actually reminded me a lot of NZ, minus the cold ha ha. Think bush clad hills, a cool, clear and energising stream, the odd pasture cows on the way there (but no sheep!!).

    I would love to join you in your little caravan thingamabob! I really need some time inside a little caravan or hut. I think I am in a Hermit mode right now. LOL. I LOVE this, and always love hearing about what you’re up to. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Sending lots o’ love,
    MM

      Ha ha – that would be quite nice, the two of us – would make for a very colourful trip ๐Ÿ™‚ I can see you in a quirky little vardo too ๐Ÿ™‚ xx
