2016 Tarot Forecasts: Themes in The Collective

The Year-Ahead 2016 Tarot forecasts work I’m doing isn’t screaming a singular theme to me, as is sometimes the case. But there are definite trends, and I suspect it will behoove any of us to remain mindful of them.

Of course, when does it not behoove one to remain mindful?

The 2016 Tarot Forecasts Say:

“Ain’t nobody got time for that.”

If I had to make one characterization of what to expect for 2016 based on the readings I’ve done thus far, it would be “eventful.”

Even where I’ve had calls for patience show up, it’s not been in the context of static situations. The energy we’re talking is highly dynamic. The patience bit comes into play with being satisfied with progress and outcomes, not stagnation.

In this context, I’m seeing people put aside things they formerly considered important–particularly social approval (or disapproval)–simply because they don’t want to use the emotional bandwidth required to fret about it.

“Level up!”

People always have a mix of easy and hard in their lives–although some of y’all fall more solidly on one side of the scale. But it’s a reminder to me, while easy is welcome, it’s not always objectively “better.”

I keep hearing myself saying things like, “This is not going to be easy, but you have the opportunity to make tremendous progress here.” Like an emotional cleaning of the closets, if you will. Old issue purge fest! Which sounds awesome. But of course, you cannot clean out those closets without getting dirty in the process.

However, I’ve been very grateful to realize: although the challenges shown are not trivial, support avenues are particularly pure and undiluted. Page of Cups in the 7th house relationship position, or the Ten of Pentacles in the 4th house, for home and family. Some classic placements here, offering very clear counterbalance to struggles.

As a result of this phenomena, I’ve been able to pinpoint which avenues people can turn to for solid, unambiguous support when needed. Yay!

“Make self-care sacred.”

If you tend to play fast and loose with your own needs or health, either physical or mental…well, sorry. The importance of staying on top of self-care is coming up repeatedly. Think the Tarot Strength card approach: gentle, consistent, and unwavering.

Mostly, I suspect it’s because the year itself looks to be demanding. Those that wait until breaking point to address self-care are going to be hurting and have trouble making up lost ground. It’s much easier to intervene preventatively than retroactively. So make note, oh self-care procrastinators!

01/01/12: Happy New Year! | Advice for 2012, Zodiac Spread

“Celebrate what you want to see more of.” –Tom Peters


In honor of the New Year, I did a simple Zodiac spread for 2012! One card for each of the houses and an overview card to pull it all together from the fun Housewive’s Tarot deck. It looks like we’ve got some challenges ahead, but Tarot’s advice should help us skim the most difficult with minimal bruising. So let’s get busy!

Houses 1 – 4


1st House/Self– Rev Page of Swords: Cutting edge? Only if you’re not slicing indiscriminately, friends. No snarky for sheer shock value; that backfires. Push outmoded boundaries, yes, and you’ll get somewhere. Elsewise, you may be sending a message you didn’t intend.

2nd House/Value – Five of Pentacles: You may not be able to hold on tight to every plate you’re juggling. Fair enough; it happens, man. But you can ask for some help sweeping up. That will make you feel better. And don’t forget, broken plates or no—you still have dinner. It’s worth being grateful over.

3rd House/Communication– Rev Ten of Swords: The worst has already been said. No place to go but up from here. You can get started by acknowledging what’s really about you and what’s SO not.

4th House/home and Family – Eight of Cups: You’ve had more than enough emotional stimulation. Back off already. Better yet, switch to decaf, and your loved ones will thank you.

Houses 5 – 8


5th House/Pleasure – Five of Wands: Everything competes for your attention! Schedule downtime, fun, and especially time with a partner. It keeps your stress levels below critical mass. Recreation is a constructive outlet for tension.

6th House/Health – Rev Temperance: Eat better, get some damn sleep already, and go easy on the booze, okay? You can fit exercise into your schedule more easily if you combine it with other activities.

7th House/Partnerships –Rev Page of Pentacles: Don’t be too nitpicky with others, and don’t take them too seriously if they’re nitpicky with you. Mars is going to be in Virgo and while, and anal retentiveness is just unnecessary fighting, right there. Be discriminating.

8th House/Reincarnation –Six of Pentacles: Whatever you give out reproduces and multiplies like mad this year. Bear that in mind when you’re deciding what treats to hand out.

Houses 9 -12


9th House/Philosophy – The Hanged Man: Drop the constraints on what you “know” to be true to expand your perspective. “Infinite” is a lot to grasp, after all. Release ideas, people and situations that limit you.

10th House/Social Status – Ace of Cups: Your reputation proceeds you. And it’s precisely rooted in how you make others feel. Be gracious.

11th House/Friendships – The Fool: Friends help you find a whole, new you. Especially those who you hook up with through do-gooding enterprises. Being a good citizen of the Universe pays dividends.

12th House/Self-Undoing – Seven of Cups: Beware seeing only what you want to see or think it’s safe to see. You may be operating unconsciously by rules that no longer apply. Avoid drunk-dialing—fewer hangovers that way.

Summing Up 2012

IMG_1928Eight of Swords–It looks to be a demanding year on many levels. But I’ve got to say, if you feel like the kabob, it your own doing. Not trying to be unkind—I consider that good news! What you’ve done, you can also undo.

I won’t lie to you. It will take a little work, and you could get nicked up in the process. But if you make a point of staying kind and connected, you’ll have plenty of support through the rough patches. There will also be fewer rough patches. And the best part is, the growth you do en route sticks. It’s SO worth it!

What are you expecting for 2012?
