There’s a lot to be said for symbolically starting a new year with the best intentions. We can kiss goodbye to all that went before and say hello to all we hope for. This month’s oracle energy from Gabrielle Bernstein’s ‘Universe has your back’ deck emphasises our ability to learn our lessons wrapped up in a comfort blanket of love.
Unsurprisingly the month starts off with reflection and I see the first row strongly indicates partnerships of all kinds work, family, lovers may well be on our minds. You are aware of your toolset. The Magician reversed perhaps has us holding back from fully manifesting our desires, maybe just while we shed the last of our self induced fears (9 of Swords reversed) The Magician is also number 1, as is January and it’s ruler is Mercury the planet of communication so you may well feel the potential brimming beneath the surface. You are about to express this potential during the first part of this month. In person or as a presentation, but not before the Hermit reversed has you taking some time to yourself, to prioritise on what’s important. Some things will need to be out aside in order to focus on partnerships that need attention.
The good news is, it doesn’t need to be a painful evolution that we went through last year, I sense that most of the healing work we did over the past 12-18months is now well embedded. You are ready to shine. Truly shine. The Sun in any reading raises the vibrational energy and promises much to look forward to. Perhaps even a little getaway would do you good. You may need to balance your finances or time but I suspect you would really enjoy that time to rebalance.
The Ace of Swords brings more of that clear thinking that’s emerged from the time to reflect and if you’ve taken that mini break then you should feel a zing a zing ready! Your radiance is returning. Charisma and a little bounce in your step helps you as you go about the day to day tasks. This helps you enjoy the simple things in life again, which quite honestly is a gift, especially at this time of year!
So the challenges for the month? Well your character may be tested through some sort of set backs. Feel like reducing the effort? Ssshhh, stop overthinking… Trust in the strength you have gained (9 of Wands) those skills won’t desert you. You are more than capable of strategising your next moves. This month however, things will seem a lot clearer. You vision is brighter.
If you need another break take one! Replenish your soul. In doing so you will bring a little zing a zing to those around you too. We end the month with the King of Cups he’s only capable of such emotional intelligence because he took care of himself! Assisted by Mercury your communication skills are in full force…. Use them with the finesse and grace you are blessed with. You or someone close to you are about to be the embodiment of compassion and guidance.
Happy New Year ….
