Year Cards

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Alright, I’m bringing back the topic of Tarot (John Ballantrae-you out there?).  A few years ago I bought the book Tarot For Yourself and with it you can uncover clues about yourself through the cards.  Between Tarot, Astrology, and Numerology you can find out a lot about yourself based on the date/time you were born.  Like I said in a previous post, I have tracked my “year card” for the past few years and for the next few.  So far they’ve been pretty accurate.

For 2009 my card was DEATH.  From what I understand, Death in Tarot is more about transformation and change than it is actual death.  A few of my important relationships definitely transformed in 2009.  I also started this blog that year and created a place where I could liberate myself in a way.  Without a doubt growth has resulted.  But of course, sometimes, Death might just mean death and of course 2009 was the year we lost Amy.

In 2010 my card was The Heirophant.  The Heirophant is about associating and living by a tradition, usually spiritual or religious.  Looking back, I do think last year was the year that I solidified my spiritual ideas.  I think that as the year drew to a close I was finally able to stop being ambivalent about my spiritual identity.  I also took a role as teacher this year at my church and feel at peace in that position.  I am loyal to my path and my path is all about the inner connection.

In 2011 my card is The Lovers.  This card is about balance and synthesis.  It is “combining the elements of head and heart, feeling and intellect.  The union of what is divine in us and in the universe.”  The healing I hope to achieve this year within myself is in many ways summed up by what this card represents.

I am very excited about the unfolding of 2011.  It feels so full of possibilities, as I realize every new year does.  If any of you would like to know your year card for 2011 just comment below and I’ll get in touch with you!  Also my friend Jennifer Shelton over at FemCentral does amazing astrology readings if you have the urge to delve into that.
