Air Signs: Aquarius, Gemini, Libra
Seven of Wands + Ten of Wands + The Magician rx
In 2022, some of you were thrust into the limelight. This may mean you received a promotion, saw an increase of work responsibilities, or were positioned as a leader or expert in your field. Whatever the case, there are more eyes on you now. Remember that you asked for this; this is a manifestation of your prayers. What’s the point of asking to be seen and then hiding when you’ve been called to bat? What are you unsure of? Take a breath, step back, and look at the bigger picture. Spirit didn’t give you more than you can handle — it’s time to recalibrate and reprioritize for the new year.
Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Seven of Wands + Temperance + Six of Cups rx
Fire signs, some of you are ending the year feeling like a specific person or circumstance is a hindrance to your progress. Things are coming to a head, and it’s taking all of your self-control not to act a fool. Woo-sa, friend! Don’t let people or circumstances make you act out of character. Being the bigger person isn’t fun, but in this instance it’s necessary. Now is the time to be intentional and consider all the possible consequences of your actions. Old behaviors that you resorted to in the past (e.g. flying off the handle) served a purpose once upon a time, but not now. There’s too much at stake. Work on finding the balance between your emotional and rational mind. Don’t let your feelings act in a way that you’ll later regret.
Water Signs: Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio
Seven of Wands + The Hanged Man + Two of Swords
December brings the headway you’ve had over the past year to a halt. The Universe is calling your attention to a matter you’ve been avoiding for too long. What’s causing your decision paralysis? You’ve been pretending the issue doesn’t exist because you are trying to escape conflict. Find your resolve and deal with it. This is not the energy you’re going to want to bring into the New Year.
Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Two of Pentacles + The Emperor + Nine of Wands rx
The theme of surrender continues to follow you, Earth signs. As the world continues to descend into mayhem, exercising extreme control in your life helps you to feel grounded. However, the need for control has left you burnt out as the year winds down. You have got to let go. You all are quite literally doing too much. There will always be situations that occur that we have absolutely no power over. By refusing to adapt, you make navigating these challenges more difficult for yourself. How can you commit to leaving room for the unknown in the new year?
