For today’s reading marking the beginning of 2017, I drew 3 cards from the Tarot Illuminati deck: a major, a court card and a number card, as follows.
0 The Fool – as we enter this year, it is important to remain optimistic about everything that comes our way including choices, people and experiences. The Fool does not worry about conforming or about what other people think. He chooses to do what most excites him, to go where he desires and to make the most of life like it is a grand adventure, because it is!
Princess of Wands – as you go about your business, this princess reminds us to bring creativity to the forefront of everything we do. Creativity can be learned and must be practiced and every time we exercise our creative muscle, we expand our minds. The more creative you are, the more you will integrate creativity into all aspects of your life because it is like oxygen.
4 of Swords – this card is a strong reminder of the power of prayer. We need to lay down our sword and accept the consequences of our actions and release attachments to outcomes. This card speaks strongly of the Serenity Prayer: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
All three cards move us deeper into the Age of Aquarius, which is very much upon us. What we have always done will not work going forward and we need to lighten our load, physically and emotionally. Happy 2017 everyone!
