This is the second year I’ve done these readings, and I am finding the process fascinating. One reason, I almost always work with a specific question. It’s very rare for me to do a general, predictive overview reading.
But the thing that most catches my eye is how themes seem to emerge in the cluster. I cannot say if it’s information I need to hear, if it’s the astrological weather now, or pointing to what we can expect overall in 2014. But I’m guessing a combination thereof.
If what I’m seeing is any indication, it’s feeling sort of like a showdown between honest (and fearless) self-representation versus living up to outside expectations and how this impacts self-esteem. It’s not about smacking down people who don’t agree with our lives. It’s more about not hiding any more and feeling good about who we are regardless.
Sometimes these dynamics were showing up in a family context, or a career context, or just in general. Considering myself as well as many of my Tarot peeps could already classify ourselves as “out-of-the-closet unique” makes the themes all the more noteworthy. But the clash between who you are versus who others want you to be (and how you feel about yourself in the process) could quite reasonably be expected for 2014.
I’m thinking this is probably due Mars in Libra. The whole self/other axis just felt very fired up! So if this is an area in your own life where you feel a little shaky, forewarned is forearmed. Finding a balance that allows you to function in circles that are important to you without sacrificing your identity is key.
The other thing that was quite apparent was an overall balance between easy and hard in individual readings. I wasn’t seeing many getting free rides, nor was I seeing full plates of sour grapes. People had a mix. Very Spoiled Mayo, I suppose. So if you find yourself struggling with one area of your life, this is a good reminder to seek support and comfort from other arenas. It will help.
Are you seeing these kind of themes around you?
p.s. If you still want a Zodiac Look-Ahead Forecast, I’ll be offering them at least until the end of the year.
