Here we are at the end of this year 2013. On many levels this has been an enormous year for expansion and change. As we transition from the 13 (2013) to the 14 (2014) we leave the powerful Death Card (the 13th Trump card in the Tarot) and move to the Art Card (the 14th Trump card in the Tarot). 2013 was all about the letting go of the outworn parts of ourselves and allowing a metamorphosis to take place. 2014 is about making decisions based on accurate calculations, managing your state, and creating structures that allow for growth.
In December we will begin to feel the shift into the energy pattern of the Art card. This is the card of finding how to alchemically transform the dense or lead parts of ourself into gold. To do that there needs to be a merging of past and present. The future must be allowed to evolve into what it is becoming and you do not know how that is going to manifest. Right now, you need to take a pause and appreciate all that has transpired from this past year.
You still have further to go but that does not mean you cannot enjoy this spectacular view that is right in front of you. Something magical is happening and it is only when you slow down and become fully present that you see the delicateness and beauty of the being you are becoming.
If you add all the numbers of 2013 together, you get a 6. The number 6 is called a Hermit pattern. 2013 was a year to dive deep within. It was a year to re-evaluate everything in your life from the ground floor up. In that process you often felt alone to face your deepest fears.
If you add 2014 together, you get a 7. This will be a year of creating strategies that serve this new you. It is time to create some plans that allow you to become your highest self. Do not allow your insecure parts to limit or define your existence.
In many systems, the energy of the number 7 is a powerful force to understand the great mysteries. The number 7 is designed to make you aware of the patterns in nature and in life. It is by understanding the subtle details of nature that you can begin to understand God itself. By understanding natural laws you can learn to shift those subtle energy patterns and begin to alter your experience and your reality.
Under the strong influence of 2013 your old self has died and now it is time to admit that pattern has run its course and allow the goodness in your soul to become the guiding light for your life. As we come to the end of the year the cards indicate you are noticing your shortcomings and failures. Take a look at that judgment and step it to a higher level of understanding. Perhaps, the things you judge yourself for were not destined for you to win. Perhaps they were designed to reveal your true character and find hidden strengths and personal moral values.
In this moment it is important to stop fighting with the past and allow the history and the story to finally rest. Some things in life are designed to be a trap with no clear solution or easy way through. It is important to not worry about all the opportunities that you passed by. Look at your life without regret. Through those trials you learned that there are always cycles and that life is about ups and downs. Everyone has those moments. It is time to not dwell in the past glories but to find how to make new magical moments.
December is about finding peace within, claiming the special moments that have been surrounding you, and feeling the safety that is offered during this month of family gatherings. Practice the attitude of gratitude. You might not be where you want but you still have a bit further to go in this life. You are not done yet. Infinite possibilities are right there. You just need to adjust your internal radio dial to a new channel and station. It will be fuzzy at first but shortly you will become more and more aware of how your conscious thoughts are co-creating your external reality.
Magic is part of life. Deny it and your lack of paying attention to the signs will catch you off guard. Accept the magic of life and learn to become aware of the signs and signals and you will find the flow that is organic to you and those around you. You are the master of your own domain and creation. Unconscious thoughts undermine and create disturbances in your reality. Become a conscious creator. Then join with others who also are choosing to work in alignment with your vibration.
Think of it like this, it takes no time at all to tear down or tear apart a room. But putting that room back together takes much more time and effort. You find things that you did not know were there. You choose to reorganize that room to balance the energy more efficiently. You discover you need to do deep cleaning that you did not see until you moved all those things. You want to make the room more in alignment with your energetic flow that is happening right now. Endless possibilities open up when you break things down. When things are set they are also static and rigid. They might be comfortable but it is through our discomfort that we find new and better ways of doing things.
In December, you will feel as if someone has torn apart your reality. You can get angry and sulk or you can see this as an opportunity to make this room what you have envisioned but were too lazy to take the time and energy to do. Now there are no more excuses. Things are a mess. Let’s get busy. The days are long, the air is cold, and projects can be fun. Your likes and dislikes have shifted and who you were, is not who you are now. This is great news! So before the family arrives for the holidays, let’s restructure a few things and allow that new flow to be seen and appreciated by those who love you the most.
At least you will have a great story to share and something new to talk about. Have a wonderful holiday.
