2022 Tarot Forecast + New Years Tarot Spread!

I was a bit apprehensive about doing this reading. The past two years have been…interesting. Part of me feels a sense of excitement and hope when I think about 2022 and part of me feels something else entirely.

However, the cards that appeared in my 2022 Tarot Forecast reading were pretty darn uplifting, if I do say so myself.

I’m breaking in my newest deck, The Wandering Star Tarot by Kat Pierce and using my New Years Tarot Spread (posted just below the video).

Make yourself a cup of tea and settle in…

I’ll be offering private Tarot readings during the month of January (using this same spread) – I will post a link to order on January 2nd 🙂

And here’s the spread I used for this reading…

I’m sending you hugs and bright wishes for the New Year – I hope 2022 will be filled with creativity, love, prosperity and intuition!

Wheel of Fortune – Tarot Meaning Deep Dive

Welcome to part 10 of my 22 part Tarot Meanings Deep Dive series – each week we explore ONE major arcana card and uncover it’s secrets, symbols and messages.

Today we’re diving into Wheel of Fortune – a card of movement, cycles, change and luck!

Grab your Tarot journal, pen and a mug of something hot and delicious…..

Keywords: change, cycles, ups and downs, good fortune, unpredictability, impermanence, centering

Symbols: wheel, snake (evil), red guy (Hermanubis = good), sphinx = wisdom

Dark side: history repeating itself, good times don’t last forever

1) Change

Wheel of Fortune reminds us that everything is always in flux, always changing and never permanent. Nothing is EVER forever!

Impermanence doesn’t equal meaninglessness – it’s the opposite. Your current life situation (relationships, job, limitations) are like a bunch of mini portals that will only be open for a limited time. While they are open,  certain experiences, learning and growth will be available to you, allowing you to honour and make the most of your current situation.

Journalling Questions:

♥ What is your relationship to change like? When was the last BIG change in your life and how did you handle it?

♥ When you consider the impermanence of everything, how does this effect how you live your life?

2) Cycles

The wheel on Wheel of Fortune goes round and round, reminding us that the nature of life is cyclical. Think of the moon phases, seasons and day/night cycles. In life, there are times of prosperity, peace and joy and times of lack, conflict and misery. Life is a series of ups and downs and each go round is an opportunity for growth, learning and wisdom.

Journalling Questions:

♥ Think of a negative change that led to a positive change and vice versa.

♥ What cycles do you experience most often? What have you learned from them?

3) Centering

Being centred within yourself is the key to remaining calm and powerful during all the ups and downs and chaos that life inevitably brings. Being centred allows you to be in the eye of the storm, observing all the action without being swept up in it.

Wheel of Fortune reminds us that if we stay centred, we can face any challenge and make decisions from a place of power, instead of from a place of intensity and fear.

Journalling Questions:

♥ What does being “centred” feel like for you? How do you know when your centred?

♥ What helps you stay centred?

♥ What takes you out of your centre?

The Wisdom of Wheel of Fortune

Change is constant, nothing is permanent, find your centre so you can be in the world and experience it, without being consumed by it.

The Hermit – Tarot Meaning Deep Dive

Welcome to part 10 of my 22 part Tarot Meanings Deep Dive series – each week we explore ONE major arcana card and uncover it’s secrets, symbols and messages.

Today we’re diving into The Hermit – the most introverted card in the whole deck!

Grab your Tarot journal, pen and a hot cup of something good…..

Keywords: Solitude, introspection, wisdom, meditation, expanded consciousness, inner awareness

Symbols: Lantern, mountain peaks, old man, cloak, closed eyes, head down, walking stick

Dark Side: Being too cut off from society, unable to relate to people and interact. Able to get wisdom from within but unable to then share it with the world.

1) Solitude

The Hermit has mastered the art of being alone without being lonely. He knows that when he tunes out the hive-like noise of society and clears his mind of chatter, he is able to commune with his soul and higher self.

Journalling Questions:

♥ How comfortable are you being alone? Do you enjoy your own company? How comfy are you being alone, in silence and not doing anything?

♥ How can you create a mini retreat for yourself – to hunker down and converse with your higher self?

2) Introspection

The Hermit encourages us to journey inward and explore our consciousness, traversing the universe within and developing inner awareness.

Lantern = light of consciousness, awareness and soul

Head down, eyes closed, cloak = tuning out worldly distractions so he can meet his true self and discover the nature of consciousness.

The willingness to take this inward journey is the difference between wisdom and intelligence – wisdom is intelligence + going inward and consulting the spiritual dimension. Without wisdom (and the spiritual dimension), intelligence will be shallow at best and destructive at worst.

So what happens when we go inward? What do we find? I’ve recently discovered HemiSync, a company that makes guided meditations and music that helps syncronize the left and right hemispheres of the brain, putting you in a deep, meditative state. I’ve finally been having real success in my meditation sessions instead of just sitting there bored out of my skull!

Journalling Questions:

♥ What helps you become more aware of your inner reality (feelings, energy, consciousness, soul)?

♥ Do you make introspection a priority? Or do other things get in the way?

3) Spiritual Journey

The Hermit reminds us to contemplate our spiritual journey and physical journey (life path) and make them intersect. Discovering how you can express your spiritual path through your physical life is key!

We must be able to root our spiritual selves into our physical reality so that our work in the world is in alignment with our spiritual blueprint.

The Hermit knows how to journey inward and obtain spiritual wisdom and then bring it into the physical, mundane, day to day, Earth plane.

Journalling Questions:

♥ Take time to meditate, journey and contemplate. What insights, wisdom or inspiration did you receive? How can you incorporate it into your day to day life?

The Wisdom of The Hermit

The Hermit knows that without wisdom, we are doomed to fail. The only way to access this wisdom is to journey inward and let go of ego. The Hermit is a mediator between the spiritual and physical worlds – and YOU are The Hermit too! All of us can access our inner hermit if we choose to.

When we tune out the noisy, chattering world of form and people’s opinions, we can access deeper states of conscious awareness and journey to the universe within to bring back wisdom and light to share with the world!
