Card of the Year – 2018
Energy Reading for November 2018
Using The Good Tarot and the Wisdom of the Oracle divination cards
created by Colette Baron-Reid & Jena DellaGrottaglia
Quick refresher on the process in place for this year: After preparing my sacred space, centering myself, calling in my Guides and Angels, I’ve asked for guidance for us all by drawing a single card from The Good Tarot to exemplify this “Master Year” of 2018 (2+0+1+8 = 11, which is a Master Number). As before, I’ve drawn a single card from The Good Tarot followed by four cards from the Wisdom of the Oracle deck to give us a more detailed look at what to expect in November. I’ll do a similar reading for next month, mixed with information that I’ve gotten from various readers, astrologers and spiritual teachers that I follow.
In The Good Tarot, the Fire suit corresponds with the suit of Wands in traditional tarot, relating to the way we act, the results of our actions and where our intentions can lead us if we act in accordance with them. We’re looking for guidance regarding our passions, ambitions and motivations turned into actions. As we are powerful co-creators, remember, we need to be aware to have our actions in alignment with our deepest intentions for the highest good of all.
This beautiful card, the 6 of Fire, represents stepping into the limelight, being and becoming an enlightened influencer. The affirmation that accompanies this card is, “I generously model my transformation so that others might be inspired. I put my light atop a hill so that it can shine forth, helping others to find their way. I remain aware of shadows and people who have trouble basking in the warm light of higher awareness. I bless them but do not dim my own beacon. It’s a time to renew my trust that I am contributing to the highest good of all in my own unique way.”
And now, our anchor card for November.
The “anchor card” for the month of November is the Hermit from The Good Tarot. One of the Major Arcana cards, the Hermit is a call for a time out. The affirmation is “Sometimes it’s necessary to take time out for regrouping and introspection This is a temporary experience but one necessary for my growth. When I step back, retreat, regroup and renew, I have a clear perspective on everything in my life.” Let’s see how we can expand on this theme when we look at the Wisdom of the Oracle cards to tell the whole story.
A Change in the Wind – “A sense that unseen change has been initiated; preparation for a storm; awareness that your plans are not on firm ground; feeling a shift; uncertainty about which direction the winds will blow.” All of us resist change, but this is a time of transformation and resistance is futile. Trust that Spirit has a great plan for you and ride this out. Life is about to get very interesting and you can be certain that there is lots of magic in the unknown.
By the Book – “Abiding by social rules; conformity; respecting cultural or family customs; universal laws.” The various Divine laws provide a framework for our experience and evolution, so rest assured that we will benefit by following them. Though our customs may vary from culture to culture, basically they’re the same. You’ll have an easier time of it if you learn these laws and conform to them.
A Leg Up – “Receiving help; delegating authority; interdependence.” You’ve come to a point where you can no longer go it alone. Pay attention and you’ll see the perfect people show up and align with you so that you can help each other get through this next phase. Accept that the assistance is freely given and you will all benefit from the interaction.
Truth Be Told – “Honesty; accepting things at face value; coming out of denial; the willingness to be transparent; clarity of communication.” Now is when you proclaim your truth out loud, willing to be transparent and open in your communication with yourself and with others. Be authentic, be exactly who you are and Spirit will respond to your courage with miracles.
It seems (and feels) like the energy is continuing to build and grow, sweeping us along our paths almost in spite of ourselves. The Hermit advises us to take a little time for ourselves over the course of the month to let the events that are forthcoming become integrated within us as we go through these days. Spending a little extra time in meditation and self-care will allow us to better embrace the vibrations that continue to flow through and into our lives.
A Change in the Wind confirms for us that change is at hand and although we may be tempted to resist what appears to be chaos and confusion, this change is absolutely for our highest good. Following the rules, the Law of Abundance, the Law of Prayer, the Law of Attraction, the Law of Thought (what I think about I bring into form), will make this transition easier for us as we go through this month By the Book. Each step of the way will put us into contact with exactly the people we need to interact with, giving us A Leg Up through this phase of our journey. It’s okay to accept help, especially when that help is freely given. Remember that you are also helping those with whom you interact. Closer association with these like-minded souls may help you find the courage and strength you need to speak your truth and be your authentic honest self. Truth Be Told is your clarion call to step forward and take your place in this New Earth that we’re creating together.
I’m hopeful that this transmission from our Oracle allows you the best advantage in facing what Fate, Mother Earth, the Universe, Spirit and your Higher Self may place in your path during the coming month. It’s obviously a very exciting time for us and we’re all so privileged to be a part of all that is taking place. I can’t wait to see what lies ahead for us in December.
It is my honor to interpret these energy forecasts for you, giving you a notion of what is possible, and I am so grateful to my mentors who have graciously shared their time, talents and patience with me as I travel along my path. Peace and blessings to you all!
