So far this month has felt like a roller coaster.
I, like many others, am trying to figure out what will be the consequences of the recent election in the United States.
There is a lot of uncertainty in the air.
Closer to my home there have also been lots of changes and the “dust” has yet to settle completely.
Lately I have consulted Tarot more often than usual and it has been helpful.
From a Numerology perspective we are at the end of a Universal year 9. The high level of emotions in the air should not surprise us.
In a year 9 we prepare for a shift. We let go of what we have outgrown to make space for new endeavors. We finish things up.
At the end of a year 9 we feel the sadness of leaving the familiar. We sense the shift in the air, but are yet unable to see it clearly.
If I had to put it in Tarot words I would pick the Page of Swords (air) and the Wheel of Fortune (earth).
Every month I pick a different deck for personal use . The current one is The Guilded Tarot deck by Ciro Marchetti.
The Page of air is about news that foretell of change coming. The page of swords well represents the nervousness felt, the vigilance and the strong desire to be ready to react fast.
The Wheel of Fortune shows the strong external energy at play. Think of being in a ship picked up by a huge wave. You cannot fight it. You do not know where you are going. You need to wait for the wave to end before you can see where you are and appraise the situation.
The Wheel upright will usher in new opportunities, a fresh start.
The Wheel reversed will bring in many challenges.
Time will tell.
