The first reading of the New Year. Hopefully, you’ve set some intentions and maybe even created a manifesting board. Me personally, I’ve set a few intentions but until Mercury is going direct I’m holding off until, the 8th of January to make my board.
The theme for this first week of 2017 is really not too surprising as it seems we are setting goals and making plans. So, let’s delve a little deeper into this reading.
The first card up is the Seven of Cups. What are you truly seeking? That is the question one must pose at this time. Yes, we can set goals that we do ever year with the hopes of accomplishing them. Usually, weight loss is in there somewhere for most but honestly, this is a goal that usually leads to us beating ourselves up. So maybe as you try to set goals you’d like to accomplish start with something simple. Something as simple as I will try to be on time, for some this may seem impossible but each time you are you can have a small feeling of satisfaction.
One of my goals this year is to have one of my stories completed by the end of January. as I read through my intentions last night I felt the anxiety of the deadline I set. The truth is I set the deadline to hold myself accountable, to give me that push to motivate me. Sometimes that is the best way to set the goal. If I miss it I will be upset but I know I can reset it to the end of February it isn’t the end of the world. So set your intentions but allow for forgiveness if you don’t get it all done in time. Remember you are only human and well life likes to throw curve balls every once in a while.
Speaking of curve balls, the Nine of Swords can be that. We think we have everything under control and suddenly it feels like the world is falling apart. This is where that forgiveness comes in. Sometimes we may feel the need to have everything perfect. Have our day scheduled and everyone taken care of but then poof something unexpected happens and we are left to figure out what went wrong. Why didn’t we get to everything? If you step back you have to realize that you can’t control everything no matter how much you want to. Sometimes you have to be a friend to someone else or help someone in their
If you step back you have to realize that you can’t control everything no matter how much you want too. Sometimes you have to be a friend to someone else or help someone in their time of need even if it is the only free time you have. So while you may feel like you are a victim of self-sabotage know that isn’t the case. You may actually discover something that you didn’t know about someone and will learn something valuable from it.
So how does Strength come into play? That’s pretty easy as you need your strength and will power to motivate you. This year’s Universal Number is 1 and that means we are starting over at this beginning. So in this first week of the new year, I would say it is time to take a good hard look at yourself. Have the courage, to be honest, and see the truths you’ve denied for too long. See what you need to let go of and what you need to do to pursue what you want to pursue.
The Three of Cups is telling us that sometimes a partner is the best way to go. This doesn’t mean romantic in nature necessarily. This means someone who you can share your goals with and or someone who can help you achieve them. No matter this isn’t the time for solo ventures even though you may believe it is.
The King of Wands is telling us of the partner that is being presented. This person can be male or female. It is one that is very analytical and mature. They can also be one of spiritual nature and has very powerful positive energy. They can help you navigate the journey you are on quite easily. While he may seem like he is just a man of thought there is a lot of energy to him. He can help you move forward easily.
Lastly, we are presented with The Magician. The reason I chose to stop here was it shows us that on this creative journey of goal setting we have all the tools to create that which we wish to manifest. You just have to be willing to be open and understand it is like cooking a meal from scratch. You have to put all the ingredients together and then cook them before you have that meal. Currently, that is what you are doing. You’re cooking up your plans and goals for 2017, when the universe says they are ready then you will see the outcome.
Best Advice: Make your plans but don’t be stuck if they don’t fall into place perfectly. Remember your thoughts have energy so if you plan something positive don’t start doubting yourself as soon as the idea has been written on paper. Remember you have more power than you may realize to manifest your life.
