Happy New Year!!
It’s very exciting that we are not only welcoming a new year, but also a new decade that will bring a fresh wave of energy our way. A good Tarot friend of mine, Linda Henery of The Tarot Conservatory, translated “2020” into three Major Arcana Tarot cards: The High Priestess (2), The Fool (0) and Judgement (20). Also, asking the question: “Where do you want to find yourself in 10 years’ time?”.
The High Priestess (2) asks us to tap into our higher wisdom and inner knowing, as well as tuning into your intuition. She reminds you to trust that you have access to your higher wisdom and knowing when you trust your intuition. Still your mind and allow the Universe to reveal its mysteries and wisdom.
The Fool (0) heralds a new beginning, a new phase. Trust your intuition and take a leap of faith. If there is something that you have always wanted to do, dreamed about, just go for it! It is time to take a risk, try something new, and trust that with faith, anything is possible.
Judgement (20) is a powerful Major Arcana card that represents a time of rebirth, new beginnings and a time for moving on. Judgement asks us to stop, reflect on the past and be accountable for what we had done in the past, both good and bad. You are now at the crossroads and it is a time for change. Are you going to continue down the same path or make conscious changes and make the effort to change your course? It is time to move forward with purpose and intention, by having a more authentic relationship with yourself, others and the Universe. It’s time to align with your true purpose.
What does JANUARY bring for us? This month the cards reflect some of the energies mentioned above for the 2020……
NINE OF WANDS: The first week may see you still feeling exhausted. Often, we push ourselves, working on automatic. When we stop and take time out, we often crash! Be gentle, rest and nurture yourself.
This card also suggests defensiveness, uncertainty and caution. A past pattern of behaviour that has left you exhausted and hesitant. Whether it has been a pattern of bad relationships, a victim mentality or a struggle with addictions or bad habits. You may feel tired and weary, feel that it’s been a struggle that you can’t overcome. But you do have the strength to overcome any challenge in your life if you believe it. You jut need to stop, wait, look around and change your direction. You have the strength to carry on until you reach your destination.
FOUR OF SWORDS: Week 2. This week is a time for rest, recuperation, healing and meditation. Rest your mind and allow peace to replace busyness or boredom. The mind needs silence and stillness to think and find clarity. Use this time to re-centre, ground yourself and rest. Find peace and tranquillity within yourself and contemplate on what you want in life and where you want to go. Before the hectic grind begins, continue to take time to withdraw and find peace. Make it a habit to spend some time each day in reflection, meditation, being in nature or going for a walk. We all need some “ME” time every day! Honour yourself by scheduling this essential and important time into your busy lifestyle.
ACE OF SWORDS: Week 3. The Ace of Swords brings a new breakthrough, clarity and a new mindset. This card also suggests that you have the strength and fortitude to bring success and victory. The suit of Swords is about logic and intellect, and the Ace brings new ideas, brainstorming and a fresh new outlook. The Ace of Swords is “Excalibur”, a symbol of truth, justice and integrity. It signifies the power of using your mind to create new ideas and manifest your desires.
CHARIOT: In week 4. The Chariot confirms that you CAN succeed in overcoming your obstacles and challenges!! Whether it is achieving your goals and desires or freeing yourself from old patterns, addictions or toxic relationships. Nothing in life is easy, but if you persevere and persist, you will get there! Allow your intuition to guide you to victory. You may have fallen in the past, but now you can rise to live freely, fearlessly, authentically and skilfully.
ORACLE CARD: This card reveals that your journey forward to blocked by strong attachments to old patterns or people from the past. Factors that may keep you stuck may be physical addictions, emotional patterns, beliefs or relationships. Are you living in fear, addicted to old, unhealthy habits or worrying about your future? All these stop you from enjoying life now.
The chains are of your own making and exist only in your mind. It’s time to take the action necessary in order to break free. Move forward in an open, free, healthy, happy and authentic way. Have the courage and take the effort to let go! It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it! If you don’t, the patterns will only repeat themselves and keep you stuck.
HEALING CARD: “HELP FROM ABOVE”: Know that your intentions and prayers have been heard and the Universe, your angels and divine beings are working to manifest the ideal circumstances required to bring your desires into realization. However, self-love and self-worth as essential, so that you are in alignment to receive that which you wish for.
Remember, that if you don’t truly believe that it is possible or if you feel that you don’t really deserve love or abundance, it will not come to you. Be open to welcoming and receiving all the love, success, abundance, opportunities, transformation and inspiration that you seek.
ROMANCE CARD: “PASSION”: It is time to revive passion in your life!! What brings you great joy? Is it a hobby, nature, gardening, music, painting, dancing, travel, helping others, a cause or any other special activity? Anything that stirs your hearty and fill it with joy!
Igniting passion in your life will automatically flow into your love life. Having a passion for life itself, what the French refer to as “Joie de vivre”, is a pre-requisite for feeling passion in your love life! Enjoy the moment and if you do, so will your partner.
If you are single, pursuing your passion brings a wonderful opportunity to meet a partner who also shares your passion!!
