Hello 2014. Enter the Death year.
Technically, I entered the Death year in December, which is when my birthday is. I suppose I could reduce this down again, and say it’s the Emperor year, but that’s not how it works if you apply the Tarot system of 22 Major Arcana (except the Fool, which is 0). For numerology purists, single numbers would apply, I think.
Anyhow. See how I’m wondering off on tangents avoiding the elephant in the room? Death. Can there be a more charged card in the Tarot? I know, I know, for all the psychology enthusiasts out there, it’s all about transformation. But let’s infuse this with reality: it’s death, it’s the end. No iPhone app will change that one, I’m afraid.
I have a fairly good idea of what this will bring, notwithstanding the fact that in life, we often have no inkling of what’s around the corner😉 There will be an end to my environmental job this year, at some point. It won’t mean the end of my environmental path, far from it. But here I am, on a Monday morning, 20 minutes away from starting work, and I’m updating my blog. My priorities are evident.
I’ll be focusing most of my energies this year in creating an online and physical consultancy presence, with a focus on tarot, astrology and yoga therapy. This will mean finding a name, creating a website, getting fliers done, putting myself “out there”. I’ve avoided doing this so far as my environmental job is in a fairly mainstream organisation and don’t want to raise too many eyebrows in the small town where I live. Death asks, would the real Monica please stand up?
“It is rare that in your Death Year an actual death will occur, for it signifies transformation and regeneration as well as termination. In general, it’s more a time to shed old skin for new growth. Following a Hanged Man Year in which you faced whatever was hanging you up, now you are liberated, often resulting in a fresh surge of energy. You cut through stagnation to get to the things that work for you. By trimming off the deadwood and dying aspects of your life, you allow all the life force to flow into healthy parts so that they can spring forth anew. Whatever is destroyed this year makes way for new life.” Mary Greer – Who are you in the tarot?
Wishing everyone a blessed 2014,
