January 2013 Tarotscope

“We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched.  Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives…not looking for flaws, but for potential.” Ellen Goodman


      Happy New Year— it’s 2013!  2013 is a ‘6’ year numerologically. ‘6’ is the number of ‘The Gift,’ of harmonious relationships, healing, balance, creativity, money made from your own efforts and accurate self-value based on proper self-assessment. During ‘6’ years, balance and co-operation are the keys to living an authentic life and achieving long lasting goals. Opportunities are laid out like an ‘eat all you want’ buffet and there is an overabundance of luck. Additionally, there is help from the most unexpected people and places. 2013 is also the Chinese Year of the Snake.  Snake years are powerful years, known for increased intuition, wealth, transformation and formidable insights leading to dramatic leaps in one’s social and financial positions.

 Just as at the end of last year, your message for the beginning of this life phase comes in the form of an affirmation that will guide you in navigating your new terrain of possibilities and opportunities.  Print it out and read it often to remind you of your mission.

 For All of Us:

 “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones that you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise—with the occasion.  As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew.  We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country.” Abraham Lincoln, December 1, 1862 in a Message to Congress
