Happy New Year– it’s 2022! 2022 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 plentiful and there is an overabundance of luck. Additionally, there is help from the most unexpected people and places.
The first two months of the year provide us with an opportunity to scope out what we want the year to bring us and how we can best go about accepting and receiving it. Your message for this month is grouped together with cards of the same mode of energy expression. The communal spirit of the gathered energy of each mode of expression will help you commit to and dynamically support your efforts as you further immerse yourself in the powerfully manifesting energy of 2022. By combining the wisdom of this month’s message with your message from last month, you’ll find that you have all you need to make this your most prolific year ever!
The first Mercury retrograde of this year begins on January 14th and will end on February 3rd. Since Mercury rules communication, transportation and contracts, when it’s retrograde, all manner of mistakes and misunderstandings can occur. If you can, hold off on buying (or leasing) any big ticket items. It’s also a good idea to triple check any and all plans you make. This is an excellent time for introspection and research, as those things that are usually hidden from view, show themselves more easily during a Mercury Retrograde period. Wait until Mercury goes direct before making any big decisions.
For all of us:
“To risk is to risk appearing the fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas, your dreams before the crowd is to risk loss.
To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To try at all is to risk failure.
But to risk we must.
Because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The man, the woman, who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“This is the purpose of life– to get what you want. There are deeper things, but this is fun.”
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20), THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20), JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) and THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) The energy of your mode of expression is action and activity oriented. You’ll better navigate your journey through this year by consciously and conscientiously taking responsibility for furthering your emotional, spiritual, and physical growth. During this year of high level creation, what you give your attention to will show you and the world what you’re energetically committed to. If you like the results of what you’re getting, keep doing what you’re doing. If you don’t like the results of your energy and actions, re-assess the way you use your energy and what’s motivated you so far and then begin the process of constructive change. Either way, you may need a Mentor, Life Coach, and/or support group to help you successfully create your most desired goals this year. Your mantra for this phase is by Abraham Lincoln, “Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions. And the actions which speak louder than the words. It is making the time when there is none. Coming through time after time after time, year after year after year. Commitment is the stuff character is made of; the power to change the face of things. It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism.”
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20), THE SUN (July 21 – August 22), THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) and THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) The energy of your mode of expression is best focused in a more introspective and personal manner. 2022 can bring you to a deeper relationship with yourself, your Higher Power, and others as you knowledgeably traverse the paths of enlightenment through introspection and transformation. By consciously embarking on this profound life adventure, you’ll become an adept at using your powerful gifts of intuition, empathy, and passion to become the person you’ve always known you could be. Your mantra for this phase is from Martin Buber, “I do not accept any absolute formulas for living. No preconceived code can see ahead to everything that can happen in a person’s life. As we live, we grow and our beliefs change. They must change. So I think we should live with this constant discovery. We should be open to this adventure in heightened awareness of living. We should stake our whole existence on our willingness to explore and experience.”
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20), THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22), THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) and THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) The energy of your mode of expression is best utilized in the form of gathering and processing information that can then be used to help society evolve to higher levels of humanitarianism. By communicating your findings to others, you will benefit from strengthening your connections with your world. By so doing you’ll inspire and strengthen those winning aspects of yourself. Your mantra for this phase is, “Everything is energy. Your thought begins it, your emotion amplifies it, and your action increases the momentum.”
