Happy New Year 2018

There’s a numerological formula you can use to work out your Tarot Card of the Year. This card represents the type of experiences you can expect to have during that year. I’ve been using the formula for so long I can’t remember where I learnt this trick, but I find it quite reliable.

The formula gives you a number that correlates with one of the Life Lesson aka Major Arcana cards. Because of the way it works each following year you shift into the subsequent Life Lesson card e.g. If your Tarot Year Card in 2017 was The Empress, in 2018 it will be The Emperor. However, at the turn of each decade or century, you will be sent to a different part of the Major Arcana, and begin a new cycle.

The Tarot Of Christmas Holidays

As some peeps begin to return to work after the long Christmas-New Year break I thought it might be a good time to explore the Tarot of these holidays.

10 Wands

Ten Of Wands: How we feel before the holidays begin. Over-burdened. Exhausted. Especially at Christmas time when present shopping and school concerts and card sending and work functions are added to the usual load.

The Wheel Of Fortune Reversed: Same Old Same Old

The Wheel Of Fortune R

Anyone else get a major whiff of deja` vu this time of year? The same old articles trotted out on avoiding over-indulgence on Christmas Day, the mayhem of Boxing Day sales and advice on how to get a toned bod (it’s summer here in Australia). Seriously. I think newspaper editors just recycle the same stuff every year.

Albert Einstein said that the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again and expect different results. Yet every year we trot up to the same faces at Christmas dinner and expect to avoid the arguments we had last time round. We make the same New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, exercise more or give up smoking and expect them to work. Doh!

For me The Wheel Of Fortune Reversed is the card that represents being stuck in a rut. Repeating old patterns. Some peeps are happy to stick with the same old same old. Me, not so much.

How do you keep this time of year fresh and meaningful?
