It took a few weeks for me to feel the New Year’s vibe this year. Usually I rock a solid introvert theme on this night. I stay home and reflect on the year ahead. Maybe do a Tarot spread if I’m feeling that way inclined. But for the first time ever I went down to my hometown’s waterfront and watched the pretty lights explode. I’ve lived here for over 20 years so I figured I should join the mainstream at least once. And this year was it. My brain was still fried from 2017 overload so I wasn’t in a reflecting kinda zone anyways.

When the Justice card turns up in a reading you know that whatever situation you’re dealing with you need to approach it rationally. This is not the time to let your emotions carry you away. Think about the pros and the cons. Write them down. Weigh them up. Make a decision based on the facts. Ignore your feelings. The Justice card is like a big flashing neon sign that reads: Whatever you do, be rational!
