Every time I say or write 2018, I get a jolt. It sounds like a date
that should be far into the future. We’re almost a fifth of the way
into the 21st
Century. I was born half way through the last one and well…that’s just weird.
The Tarot card that exemplifies this time of year is the Judgement
card. Whenever I turn over this card, clients worry it means they will
be judged harshly.
On Judgement Day (according to scripture), the world is at an end and
those still alive shall be irrevocably judged by the divine. Let’s be
honest. Most of us would fail to pass the mustard subjected to an
all-seeing scrutiny which is why Judgement Day has rarely been construed
to be one to anticipate with bated breath.
The good, stay and the bad, go. Those already in spirit will live again
if they deserve to, although what a blessing this would be, is
debatable. No wonder the Judgement card is rather worrisome to most
or any religious dogma for that matter. They possess a unique symbolism
which has evolved through many associations throughout the centuries,
most of which has been debated vigorously, ad-nauseam.
Unlike Judgement Day, the Judgement card in the Tarot is a welcome
sight. It symbolizes forgiveness, refresh and rebirth. It’s about
letting go of all those pesky old resentments, vengeful fantasies (as
delightful as these can be which is what makes them so addictive) and
frustration. It’s about live and let live. Joy to the World and all
that good stuff. This is a, “everything is all good so we can move
At the arrival of the dawn, all rise and lift their arms to the sky,
confident that goodness will prevail, and justice will be fair. It’s
about realizing with tremendous relief that all that toxic, stinky, old
anger is healed and no longer a burden that we must drag around like a
dead pet. We’re free and filled with light. We’re fresh with promise
and ready to embrace a new day.
That’s what the bringing in of the New Year should be.
Our end of December reflections is summarized and filed. We’ve heartily
congratulated ourselves for all we accomplished in the year just passed
and noted those failures we’d rather not repeat EVER again. Resolutions
are identified and pledged. Projects left incomplete top our list to be
finished at the start of the year. We’re fresh, resolved and
We’ve embraced relatives and friends with magnanimous good will
throughout the holiday season just passed and laughed heartily (perhaps
with the help of a little inebriation) at passed misunderstandings and
miscommunications. We are feeling all is right with us and our loved
ones. Now it’s time to bring in a new year.
It’s a Wondrous and Luminous Time
I wish you a memorable 2018 whatever that means to you. I wish you a year beyond even your imagination.
I wish you the resolve to adhere to your resolutions (don’t forget to
include a few spiritual ones in there as well as physical ones) but even
more importantly that you are able to forgive yourself heartily when
you fail to. Keep in mind that about 80% of us have given up on these
resolutions by mid-February.
Resolve is about motivation. What are you motivated by? Fear,
achievement, social currency, power, growth or reward are the primary
keys to what motivates us but really what motivates YOU is as
individualistic as your fingerprint. If you can identify what motivates
you, you can use this to propel you to the next level you wish to
achieve over the coming year. Whatever that might be!
I hope the problems that were plaguing you throughout 2017 are remedied not so far into 2018.
As collectively we turned over the Judgement card yesterday, let us
commit to forgiveness, gratitude and rebirth for a fresh start today.

consulted Kathleen quite a few times over the past 3 years and she has
been spot on every time. And when I doubted her, time proved me wrong
and proved her right. She is a caring soul and will always tell you what
she sees without embellishments. I've found her to be a great intuitive
and I couldn't recommend her more."
