The previous year in summary
Five of Pentacles
Sadness, worry, illness
The five of pentacles is a card of hard times. It may come in the form of an illness, job loss, financial trouble, or rejection. Above all this there will be worry…so much worry. This anxiety is counterproductive & damaging. You must find a way to quiet the mind during this difficult time. Rely on meditation or visualization to find peace.
Lessons learned from the past year
No one loves the sight of the death card in a reading. We spend most of our lives denying death altogether…so when this card appears it’s easy to get frightened or think it’s “bad”. Don’t let the drama distract you from the message: something in your life needs to end. It needs closure. This will happen voluntarily or involuntarily. Either way, you will feel a positive transformation begin after the initial forms of suffering past.
Aspirations for the next 12 months
Seven of Pentacles
Period of Contemplation
A curious card, the seven of pentacles shows a period of contemplation & uncertainty. You’re looking back at all of your hard work & wondering…has it been a failure or success? You can’t seem to decide. Shouldn’t you be be reaping more rewards by now? Maybe so. But the mind has control over perception. It’s possible your rewards are waiting for you to recognize them. They are not always monetary.
What empowers you in reaching your aspirations
Father of Pentacles
The father of pentacles is a steady, gentle man. Upon first meeting he can almost seem dull because of his extremely calm temperament. But underneath is an incredibly passionate man who prioritizes the stability of his job, family, a home. He is entrepreneurial & diligent at work. A true pleasure to know.
What may stand in the way of reaching your aspirations
Hope, peace of mind
Standing outside in a dark night you gaze up at the stars & sense glimmers of wonder & hope. Even though you can’t find concrete answers to life’s many questions up there in the sky, you can’t help but feel comforted & renewed. Such is the energy of the star card. It is not about actions or situations, it’s simply about connecting to the part of you that is hopeful & serene. This force will bring light back into your life & infuse you with positivity. A lovely card.
Your relationships and emotions in the coming year
Son of Pentacles
Loyal, quiet, dedicated
The good side of the son of pentacles is that he’s loyal & determined. He’s inventive & can be trusted whole heartedly. But sometimes this figure becomes stubborn & persistent to a fault. This combined with his quiet nature results in him being hard to get to know & socially awkward at times. He commonly has only one or two close friends as opposed to many.
Your career, work and finances
Though it may feel frightening when the devil appears in your reading. The card carries an urgent message & must be interpreted with total honesty. The darkness of the devil card takes the form of addiction, negativity, or materialism. It can indicate an ugly relationship with a person or substance. Identify this dependency & how it’s holding you back. The devil’s hooves are strong & relentless–their grip will not loosen unless a conscious change is made. Free yourself.
Your health and well-being
Ten of Pentacles
The ten of pentacles signifies material & spiritual abundance in nearly every area of your life. The number ten usually indicates completion, & in this case the journey was well worth it. So be generous, not only with your money but also with your wisdom. Provide guidance to those who struggle. You will be rewarded tenfold.
Your spiritual energy and inner fulfillment
Three of Cups
Friendship, joy, bounty
The three of cups is a love card. It foresees you in the company of amazing friends, creating memories together that you’ll forever hold dear. These are not any ol’ friends. They are people with whom you feel a rare connection with them you feel truly “yourself”. Enjoy each minute of their company. This card can also indicate an upcoming celebration. Love abounds!
What you most need to focus on in the year ahead
The world is the final card in the journey of the major arcana. It signifies completion, harmony, & contentment. It’s rare to experience this energy, as we are usually consumed by wanting, needing, & achieving. So when this card appears contemplate for a moment the idea of “being whole”. Focus on the image of the card…close your eyes & envision this radiating energy inside you. What does it feel like? Where is it located? What blocks you from feeling a sense of “wholeness” each & every day of your life?
Your most important lesson for the coming year
The magician is a card of boundless, expansive energy. Whereas many of the major arcana deal with stillness or aspects of the mind…this card is all about action, action, action. It’s time to see yourself as the wildcat–embrace his speed, grace, & abilities. Do not be afraid to begin. You have the power of all four elements within your reach, now is the time to use them.
Overall, where are you headed in the next 12 months.
Wheel of Fortune
Destiny, change of course
Whether day or night the weel of fortune is always in motion. Some call it fate, others destiny. It’s possible to go months or years without feeling its presence…but when this card appears the eye of the wheel is fixed upon you. Don’t be surprised if there’s a change of course heading your way, something you’d least expect. Whatever happens to you during this time know that it is bringing you closer to your life’s purpose.
