Tarot & The Year 2021

Tarot & The Year 2021

As we bid adieu to 2020, it’s only natural to wonder what type of energy 2021 will bring into our lives – and what better way to gain some insight than the Tarot!

Every year has an associated number, and therefore an associated card from the Major Arcana. 2021 brings us number five (2+0+2+1=5), which is the Hierophant. I truly believe this card comes at a perfect time. While the Hierophant encourages conformity and tradition, I believe that we are instead being told to ask more questions. Learn more about the world around us, the procedures, the way things are done. By understanding how things came to be, we can better understand how to improve. 

Change and progress take time. With 2021, we will start uncovering information out there that we need to grow, and when 2022 brings in the Lovers, we as a society will begin to reshape our belief systems. Transformation is upon us, and the Hierophant is part of the first step.

Now, let’s get a little more personal. We have our collective card for the year, but what about your personal card? Calculating your card for the year ahead gives you a little message of advice or what to expect. Learn how to calculate your card number below, and then scroll down to see what advice the cards have for you for 2021. To mix things up a little, I used a different deck for every card. I chose cards from different decks that I felt spoke to the meaning of the card itself – and it was definitely fun going through them all!

Looking for something a little more? For a limited time, I’m offering $12.00 Bring In/Release readings for 2021. The .PDF reading will include your card for the year ahead along with a second combination card for personalized advice. Next, there will be two cards – one to represent what to bring in and another to represent what to release from your life. The 2021 Bring in/Release reading is only available until January 15th – so act now if you want yours! 50% of proceeds will be donated to the David Suzuki Foundation.

The What of Tarot

The What of Tarot

In the Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How of Tarot series, we’ll be diving in to different areas of the cards. To kick the series off, we’re starting with The What of Tarot? A look at what Tarot is, and what it means.

So, what is Tarot?

Tarot is a deck of cards; pictures on paper or card stock. It’s 78 cards, divided into 22 Major Arcana, and 56 Minor Arcana. To some it’s a game, to others, a tool.

Tarot can be used in a variety of ways: to learn, to dig deeper, to make choices, to see potential paths and outcomes, to connect with spirit guides or those no longer in this world, or to make predictions. Not all Tarot Readers will use the cards for the same purposes.

Focus on IX – The Hermit

Focus on IX – The Hermit

β€œIn order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion.”

The Hermit from the Prisma Visions Tarot

Introspection, solitude, guidance, wisdom, analysis. A lone figure crosses the bridge, with only his lantern and the moonlight to light his path. Alone with his thoughts, he has sought out this moment of solitude, accompanied only by gentle lull of the water and calm night breeze. The Hermit is in search for the truth; a beacon of light that cuts through the darkness. There’s a good chance he may not be comfortable with what he finds, but he is able take what he has learned, use to better himself.

With everything constantly buzzing around us, our subconscious sometimes craves silence; the opportunity to dig inside, and allow our inner wisdom to sort through the noise. There is nothing wrong with wanting to take time out, and do some soul-searching. The mind is a powerful tool, but it’s hard to use when you can’t even hear yourself think.

Beginnings: January

Beginnings: January

The Aces are often thought to represent the unbridled energy of their suit; they are beginnings and opportunities. For the first day of a brand new year, I thought they would be the perfect place to start.

For January’s reading, I decided to pull out the four Aces: the Ace of Wands, Ace of Chalices, Ace of Swords, and Ace of Pentacles, and used them to gain insight for the month ahead.
