2016 will be an interesting year friends, from a numerological perspective 2016 coordinate to 9, the year of the Hermit. A Hermit year often is a quiet one with an emphasis on study, spiritual pursuits, and self-reflection. As a race we are being called to think deeply on who We are and what our collective purpose is here on Earth. In order to do this, we need some time to go within, we need silence to hear the Source.
This is going to be hard, to find silence that will be your challenge this year. You, O Hermit, must seek it out. The Hermit left the village to seek the mountain, he was not just handed his solitude, he made time for it. Make time for quietude, it is important, the years that come after will be chaotic, 2016 builds a foundational element to what comes after.
Capricorn—Wheel of Fortune
January is a chaotic, busy month for you. If you were hoping for resolution or conclusions to happen in January, um—not going to happen but if you were looking for your luck to make a sudden turn (i.e. from bad to good) this will be the month to see that happen. If you have had amazingly great luck then lay real low in January as the Wheel’s meaning is that things are about to take a sudden turn and how that turn goes depends on how things have been for you lately, could be great if you have had a rough time of it, could be challenging if you’ve had it good—my advice is buckle up because there is turbulence but nothing you can’t handle or even enough to break a sweat over.
Oh yeah someone’s birthday is coming and Aquarians by and large love their birthday! January will be overall a pleasant month. Of note, you should absolutely make your health goals priority as the suns’ appearance here indicates an energetic boost to radiant health and a great start to any health resolutions to intend to make. Fitbit? Check? Lululemon action? Check. Now, don’t forget the veggies! Bonus points if you can make these health resolutions with a partner or friends.
Pisces--The High Priestess
This month indicates that winter is a true time for going within for you. Work on your spiritual practice in however you define that, spend time in silence and turned off from social media, check in with your intuition (which is usually amazing in Pisces, BTW) and make this the go to project for January, is there anything you are avoiding that really does need your attention? What inner room needs dusting?
January’s energy contains a lot of socializing and friendships if you will let it happen. Are there old friends and community members who have been left to the wayside as you have committed to new projects? It might be a good idea to reconnect to some friends of old, there is something important in these connections for you, a grounding, that needs to occur.
You are being called to act as a messenger of love this month. You are being asked to help clear conflict between others, to calm anger, to remind other parties of their love for one another. This tarotscope is about your action upon others and how important your sweet ways and your sweet words can have, and how selfless you can be, Taurus! Please do not be afraid to get involved when you see pain, your triage and your kind peacemaking are going to be so important.
January is your element, you will be straight up in mind mode, making plans, lists, thinking thoughts—drinking coffee and burning high mental octane fuels to get a lot of plans done for 2016 set into motion. January is cold and bright, we don’t (I don’t mean a royal we as I am a gemini too) have time for emotional hijacking, we have the world to save, done we gemini? Just don’t burn out, k? Lights out at a decent hour and get some rest the year is long and full of projects.
Was 2015 a challenging year for you, cancer? 2016 starting off with the Star seems to be saying that 2016 is going to lay off a bit. Things are going to be a bit easier, hope is going to steal into the things that felt so hard before; you do not have to believe in hope for hope to suddenly arrive, that is what is so amazing about hope, its not really about us, it exists on its own and is a gift—this gift is headed your way and she is beautiful.
You are roaring out the gate in 2016 filled with light, life, ideas, passion, projects, health and relationship goals—you have a lot of things you would like to accomplish and a surge of energy to begin tackling them—do not let this gift of energy dissipate by not having a plan! Grab a planner make your to do list and corral all of this lovely energy suddenly heading your way; you can create some major shifts if you don’t allow the comet to head straight for the sun, with some foresight and planning this could be an outstanding month for self development, Leo.
Virgo, not sure if you are somehow riding on the coattails of Leo’s vast energy but your tarotscope feels very similar, 2016 begins with a bang of Strength, emphasizing health and energy if you are making choices for your body, mind, and spirit including lifestyle changes the energy supports your vision and ability to make those changes right now. Along with the radiant energy of Strength you also get the influence of balance which is so important and necessary to ‘stick the landing’. Applied pressure over time can create wonderful things and you are that ‘wonderful thing’; get to work!
If you have been ignoring something, playing ostrich, sweeping under rugs then January is NOT going to be the month for games any longer, Libra. The Tower is a ‘come to Jesus’ kind of card, things that we have been avoiding, the creaky things we feared will break—it’s going to break and instead of pretending it isn’t your job is to stop, drop and roll. Fall gracefully, friend, this really IS for the best.
A lovely start to the new year, you might be getting a small boon a pay raise or promotion or a lucky scratch off this ace usually brings a boost in resources, it is a gift but I think it is one you have earned, more than earned. Look under couch covers because this gift may not be an obvious “hey, here is money” kind of gift, it might come around the corner in a strange and unexpected way.
January feels like the come down after the long high of December, Sag. You were burning a lot of fuel through November and December and January is a lower energy month for you. I tell you this so you don’t feel guilty about perhaps waiting until February to let those resolutions kick into gear, make January an in-between month, no one’s counting anyway—if you aren’t feeling it, then don’t fight it, energetically the movement here is to chill out and recover.
