Hello everyone, I had a visit from a friend of mine today and they asked me to do a reading for them (They're getting married in March, and wanted a little glimpse at the year ahead). I did my reading the same way I'm doing everyone's here, so I thought I'd share the outcome, so you can all have a better idea of how I interpret each card. Spoiler: A quick refresher I. Summary of the year gone II. Career outlook III. Finances outlook IV. Love outlook V. Family / Friends outlook VI. Spirituality outlook VII. Months 1 - 3 outlook VIII. Months 4 - 6 outlook IX. Months 7 - 9 outlook X. Months 10 - 12 outlook XI. The biggest obstacle of the year XII. How to tackle said obstacle XIII. Overview of the year ahead Spoiler I. Uriel, the Angel of Flame. Regent of the sun. Fire is all-consuming. Wild & unyielding. 2021 was certainly that much and more. But fire also tears through the darkness of uncertain times and brings a hopeful glimmer, which can be represented by the moments of joy and success that were found scattered throughout the year. II. King of Cups The King of Cups is a symbol of compassion and control. In a career context, the appearance of this card means finding balance with your working life and your personal life. Something that most can only wish for. A grand start given the sudden change in career. III. Nine of Pentagrams To see this card where it has landed is a good omen; changing careers can be a terrifying transition as, for many, it can mean struggling before succeeding. But the Nine of Pentagrams is a sign that you will see the fruits of your labour within the next year. IV. Nine of Cups Another good omen! A sign that love will blossom like a tree in Spring for you in 2022. Maybe it’s pointing to emotional stability with your husband-to-be. Maybe it’s the healing sensation of reconnecting with a good friend. Or even finally finding satisfaction in that passion project that you visit off and on like all artists do. Whichever way this card is pointing, it’s an enviable point of view. V. Page of Wands Got a honeymoon getaway booked? The deck seems to think so, so you might want to book one! The Page of Wands is very much an excitable little nomad - he gets giddy from the freedom to explore. VI. Four of Swords This encourages rest and restoration. Between changing careers and readying for a wedding, your spirit may be feeling a little bit taxed. It’s not just your body that needs rest - your emotional and mental health rely on it to function. Remember to focus on yourself. VII. Four of Wands A card of celebration; and looking at this spread - there isn’t much mystery as to why - A union of two people who love each other. A new start after leaving a career that caused you so much misery. Those two points in of themselves are worthy of much celebration! VIII. Page of Cups You’ve been so focused on getting ready for that one event that you’re probably feeling the comedown at this point. It can feel a little anticlimactic that all that preparation was for one day. It’s OK if that’s true, you’re not the first newlywed to think it and you certainly won’t be the last. Or... Maybe you’re noticing things in some of the people in your life that you hadn’t seen before - It’s a little saddening because you often look at your friends with rose-coloured glasses, and do see them without can be horrifically sobering. It’s important to recognise and contemplate these feelings. Do not let them fester until that become a malignant spot on your wellbeing. IX. Two of Pentagrams The drastic changes in your life this year will now be settling in as a reality, your priorities will shift and you’ll make decisions differently as you adapt to the startling changes. Don’t be afraid of facing them, they’re there to test you, not intimidate you. X. Knight of Pentagrams Sounds like you’ll be working hard towards something in the latter part of the year. You’ve always been one to take on work with a knowing smile and a crack of the neck, so I’m not surprised to see this card. XI. The Sun The Sun card is a beacon of positivity, so to pull this as your “biggest obstacle” is unusual. Maybe instead of it acting as an omen of what will be, it’s what you need to work on within yourself. XII. The High Priestess The High Priestess is one of the best cards to pull as your solution to your biggest obstacle. She represents the unconscious. The inner voice. We all deserve happiness, and that includes you. Allow yourself the happiness that the year will bring, embrace successes big and small, and relish in the positivity that surrounds you. XIII. Remiel, the Angel of Visions. Shepherd of good graces. A lantern that lures us into the future with a rumble of thunder that whispers “Everything will be alright”. Remiel is compassionate and full of love for people. The year ahead is looking bright for you, so you can rest assured that Remiel is watching you with a loving smile.
