Nine of Wands, the perfect card for new year resolutions

The Nine of Wands is sometimes called the “Stamina” card, and it’s all about daily perseverance – something we need if we’re going to really make a go of it with our new year’s resolutions!

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotOn the Rider-Waite Tarot card, a male figure leans upon one staff and is surrounded by eight others arranged like a defensive fence. In the English Magic deck the figure, dressed in Cavalier garb, is flanked by two stags, sacred animals that symbolise protection.

The Suit of Wands is associated with primal energy, spirituality, and inspiration, as well as with determination and strength, like the power that causes seeds to spring forth into life. Wands are generally positive cards related to things important to you at the core of your being.

Nines, meanwhile, can herald the beginning of the end of something, a natural winding down or closing. This doesn’t necessarily mean the thing in question is finished forever. Instead, it indicates that a new phase will soon be at hand.

In terms of astrology, the Nine of Wands represents the winter sign of Sagittarius. The year is nearly over, but there’s one more astrological sign — Capricorn — before the New Year.

If you’ve been worried or struggling with something, this card says it’s time to calm yourself. Don’t allow yourself to become worn out or overwhelmed. You very likely need to rest, so take time to mend your wounds or, alternatively, to savour your victories.

When this Nine appears in your reading, it suggests your innate capacity to persevere, to protect yourself, and to succeed.

You know in your heart you have the strength and stamina to deal effectively with your current situation. The Nine of Wands confirms this. You’re divinely protected, and you’re poised to triumph. So relax and know that a new beginning lies ahead!

A Tarot Reading Can Change Your Life! Ashley’s Story

Can 78 colourful pictures really change your life?

The answer is an enthusiastic “Yes!”

In this series, we look at the stories of some awesome people who’ve benefitted from life-changing Tarot card readings. We last featured Hannah’s story; this time it’s the turn of Ashley.

Ashley

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotAshley was a pale, blonde, white girl who grew up on an American Navajo Indian reservation. Surrounded by raven-haired children, she naturally felt a sense of not belonging. By age six she’d become shy and she later experienced debilitating depression and anxiety.

Seeking comfort, she turned to spirituality. After starting with her father’s Bible, she moved on to dream interpretation. Eventually Ashley began to study the Tarot.

Repeated readings helped her understand her true place in the world and her intended life path. She learned that her childhood desire to become a teacher – unrealistic, she thought, because of her shyness – was in fact what she was meant to do. She made other discoveries too, based on Tarot readings, and these helped Ashley find supportive friends, and enabled her to overcome her depression and anxiety.

“The Tarot,” says Ashley, “helped me to understand why certain relationships in my life were as they were, why I felt certain challenges, and how I could make what seemed like a disaster into something helpful and rewarding.”

Today Ashley accepts herself, lives in a place she adores, and has a fulfilling career. You can read more about Ashley’s journey here.

A Lucky New Beginning for a Prosperous and Happy New Year

“It’s so exciting, this feeling of a new beginning.” – Amy Irving, actress: Carrie.

Many cultures consider it good luck to embark on a new venture when the moon is new.

It’s lucky to move into a house or flat during the new moon, to begin a new venture, to ask your boss for a raise, or to propose marriage. (It’s also a great time for a Tarot reading!)

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotSpiritualist Ashley Neese writes, “In farming traditions, the new moon is the time when the soil is most fertile and wet. Many farmers and gardeners plant seeds on the new moon.”

Launching a venture under a new moon, therefore, is best for a long-term project. This the time for you if you’re patient, ready to plant seeds, and willing to wait for the seeds to germinate and grow.

For decades American astrologer Jane Madey has promoted the “Day of Abundance.” The first new moon of the new year, it falls on January 6th in 2019.

On the day of the new moon, Madey advises that you create a “cheque” on a piece of yellow or gold paper. Where you’d find the date on a typical bank cheque, write the date of the new moon (January 6, 2019). Where you’d find the payee’s name, fill in your own. Leave the number line blank, but where you’d normally spell out the amount, write “Paid in Full.” On the signature line, write “The Law of Abundance.” Then keep the cheque in a safe place throughout the year.

If you miss the first new moon of 2019, don’t worry; just backdate the check to January 6.

Here’s to abundance for us all in the new year and with each new moon!!

The Hermit – could this be the real Santa?

Some people proudly claim to be in their hermitage perhaps 70 to 80 percent of the time. As we only see Santa Claus for a brief few weeks – in  shopping centres, visiting schools, hospitals and charity centres – and then a quick jaunt around the world on Christmas Eve, it’s quite likely that he epitomises the Hermit!

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotThe percentages may change, but most of us like to have our “hermitage time” or quiet period. The Hermit tells you this is necessary for a happy, healthy life.

A Major Arcana card, the Hermit represents solitude and contemplation. It advises you to take time for yourself, and to retreat into your own private world. Once there, you can quietly assess your life, make vital decisions, and prepare to take important steps forward.

Many Tarot decks, such as the Rider Waite deck or the Old English Tarot, show the Hermit as an elderly man carrying a lantern. He’s not hiding in a cave. Instead, he’s out walking.

If the Hermit steps into your reading, know that it’s a card of introspection. His lantern symbolises the shining light of your own inner wisdom. You have the ability to sort things out once you’re free from worldly distractions. But don’t withdraw permanently and become a true hermit, even though you may find others to be irritating.

This card is also about putting on the brakes. It’s time to call a halt to frantic activities, and look within. Or perhaps a relationship is moving too quickly.

The Hermit recommends backing away from those pressuring you. Go off on your own to deliberate. Make the decision that you know is best.

Finally, the card may counsel guidance from wise teachers, whether in person or through their writings. They who are older and more experienced can help you move forward on your life’s path. Seek them out and be comforted. The Hermit’s lantern lights the way!

This is a brilliant time of the year to take a step back and quietly evaluate what’s gone before and what lies ahead.
