At the end of each year I do a tarot reading for the year ahead, just to have a little peek at what the new year has in store for me. It gives me focus and clarity, and helps me to put things in a different perspective in times of struggle. The upcoming year seems to be a year filled with wands for me (just like last year!), and honestly, I can’t wait!
When I do a reading for the year ahead, I lay out thirteen cards. Twelve in a circle, each card representing a specific month, and one card in the middle, representing the central theme. What I noticed as soon as I’d laid out the cards, was that six of the cards had wands in them! That’s some passionate energy there!
Moreover, the card which represents my central theme for the year 2018, is the Page of Wands in reverse. The Page being still a page, is busy with finding out what his passions are and how to use them. He’s enthusiastic and ready to discover all that life has in store for him. However, the page is in reverse, which to me means that in 2018 (or by the end of it) I won’t be a page anymore. I won’t be a beginner anymore. I know exactly what my passions are and how I can channel them to make a change in this world.
Indeed, the card representing December 2018 is the Queen of Wands, an exuberant and graceful woman who knows who she is and whom people like to be around. The King of Wands already shows up in June, which might mean I’ll meet a great mentor or at least someone very passionate I’m looking up to. Someone who inspires me to become the Queen of my suit. It’s gonna be a fiery year in which I’ll learn a lot about my passions!
The funny thing is that last year, the Knight of Wands was my theme. I already decided to take some of his energy with me into the new year, and it seems that will probably come in handy.
In numerology, all the cards I drew for the upcoming year reduced to nine, which is the number of spirituality and completion. Sounds quite promising if you ask me.
I can’t wait for the new year to start and to discover all it has in store for me!
