January: The Month According to Tarot

Soul Cards by Kristine Fredheim

This month brings groundbreaking changes. The plates are shifting beneath our feet and the results are transformative. We can support these changes by letting go of the past and by strengthening our knowing of our inherent freedom. Remembering how truly free and powerful we are serves us so very well now, as does releasing what does not serve our highest good and opening our hearts to receive what is ready for us. We are getting ready to step into a more powerful iteration of ourselves and we are expanding magnificently. Our guidance now is to take the path of least resistance and flow with trust, knowing that everything is always working out for us and we are always flowing toward what is aligned with our highest good. 

Q1: The overall energies of January: The Tower

Something is getting ready to leave our lives on a grand scale. Weak foundations are crumbling and things are shifting. Preparations have been a while in the making and the end results are getting ready to make themselves known, whether to manifest in the physical or become apparent within. What is making its exit now is doing so to prepare us to step into higher levels and embrace an improved way of living and experiencing life. This could show up in the form of greater precision in our work, more aligned application of the knowledge we hold within, our intuition becoming evident in manifested wisdom, and in other ways according to our path and where we are upon it. 

We can expect to start seeing and feeling these ground-level changes this month, and they may manifest in how we perceive ourselves and others and in the degree of knowledge we are able to access. Blocks are dissolving and outdated belief systems are on their way out. We are stepping into higher levels of self-confidence and as a result, are shifting our vibration. This attracts new experiences that align with wherever we are vibrationally, and experiences, circumstances, relationships, and situations that are no longer in alignment with us pass out of our experience; this is the natural way of things. As new, better ways are preparing to be born, what isn’t in resonance with us in the ever-evolving palette from which we manifest is falling away easily or possibly in more vivid and dramatic ways.

Q2: Week 1: Seven of Pentacles

Now the work before us is becoming more clear, even if it feels as natural as breathing. What is in resonance with our truth emanates from within us like light from a flame: it is the light of who we are, and it cannot be hidden any longer. A shell that once contained us as we gestated is now shuddering loose and falling away. As the pieces crumble, the light shines through, from within us and from without, no longer obscured, and we realize both what it is we are capable of and who we have been all along. 

The light that comes through is truth: the truth of all that is and the truth of who we are. The manifested results can manifest as higher levels of self-awareness. This energetic movement is as powerful as plates shifting in the earth—magnificent, powerful, and game changing. The work that we do, whether on the physical or the spiritual plane, can move mountains. Once we realize what we are capable of, we are an unstoppable force. The old adage of hiding one’s light under a bushel applies; the sun would not think for a moment that it is small and insignificant—its light gives life to the world, and so does ours. 

Q3: Week 2: Ten of Wands reversed

This week is about letting go. When we release our burdens, when we release the things we have carried that are not in resonance with who we are and do not serve us for where we are going, we make room for more light to enter. Lighter, we become more of who we truly are and can move forward faster and see more clearly where it is we are meant to go. When we carry a burden, our focus is almost entirely on the burden. But once we set it down and realize it is not ours to carry, that there is no need for us to carry it, and that it does not serve us to carry it any longer, we must rest. 

Once rested, we are renewed, restored, refreshed, and we can move ahead with purpose and clarity. We are guided to set intentions to release what does not serve our highest good and trust that, even if we don’t know the full weight, nature, or extent of the burdens we carry, our inner being, allies, and guides are working with us to help us let go. When we release resistance, all things become possible. We can almost see it begin to shift. This week brings powerful transformations that begin within, that begin with the decision to let go.

Q4: Week 3: Two of Cups

Harmonious partnerships are more possible, are made stronger, and open up to us more rapidly when we have made room for them through letting go. These partnerships can be partnerships with the self (the higher self), with others on the earth plane, or with our allies in the nonphysical. We may be seeing these play out in our lives now in this number 6 year, a year of harmony and peace. We may be sensing what is on the horizon through a stronger alliance with and attunement to our senses, manifesting as a form of psychic awareness, which is actually the result of our tapping into infinite intelligence through aligning with the whole of who we are. 

We may also be seeing new partnerships manifesting, the strengthening of existing partnerships and alliances, and new personal relationships developing for us, perhaps unexpectedly. Something new is developing, and it is powerful, harmonious, and beautiful. It restores our faith and trust in ourselves and in others. It rewrites our understanding of what is possible. A new way of partnering with others is coming, and in some cases, it is the unification of energies working harmoniously with one another to create and restore balance, peace, and harmony, both within ourselves and on the planet as a whole. This aids humanity’s ascension and awakens us to greater possibilities and higher levels of being, knowing, consciousness, and awareness, both self-awareness and awareness and understanding of others through unity. 

Q5: Week 4: The World

The World is the last card in the major arcana and signifies the end of a major cycle. Something is winding to a close, and this card in the upright position indicates that we have navigated this cycle successfully and it is closing out in positive ways, perhaps with peaceful resolution. Achievements may be felt or make themselves known in the physical. If felt on the subtle levels or sensed, this may be a commendation from our higher self, allies, and guides for a job well done. We have reached new levels of attainment and are now ready to integrate the lessons we have learned. After or during this integration often follows a period of rest in which we are able to pause before moving on to the next cycle. 

We may find during this time that we are more aware, that we have moved into new levels of strength, or that our spiritual gifts are now more potent or expanded. These new understandings can manifest in different ways depending on our gifts, what we are ready for, where we are on our journey, our current experience, and the ways in which we are open to receiving, perceiving, and understanding. We may begin to experience life in different ways or realize that our perceptions or perspective has shifted. This card is often associated with fortunate endings and conclusions and we could receive a boon before moving into the next cycle. Trusting that everything is always working out for us is most beneficial to us now. 

Q6: Guidance for January: Eight of Swords

We are rising up out of the ashes, the phoenix reborn. We arise transformed, relieved of prior burdens, more self-aware than ever. We realize we cannot be trapped, even in a cycle of our own making, unless we choose it. We are breaking free of bonds; the blindfold is unfurling. We realize how free we truly are and how powerful. We are the masters of our destinies, the creators of our own realities. We devise the world of our own making and it unfolds before us, a carpet rolling out even as we perceive it. As we rise up, our vision stretches out before us, a vista expanding, and we gain the bird’s-eye view.

Now, we can soar, higher than ever before, more free and light and expanded. We fly further faster and come to understand ourselves on deeper levels than we have yet achieved in our human form. The clarity we gain from these new perspectives is the ultimate game-changer, and it is supported by the relief we have and the resulting appreciation for our freedom and our knowledge of it. We now are able to feel deeper gratitude than we would have known had we never explored the contrast. Now, our highest guidance may be to let go of the old as we rise up and let the past crumble as we soar unencumbered.

As the nineteenth day of the first month, today ushers in energies of endings and subsequent beginnings. Changes may be happening rapidly or just under the surface, shifting things energetically in preparation for their physical outcome. Transformation is indicated all around. Notice where your interests are being guided today and trust your intuition, especially when it comes to making decisions. You may find yourself facing choice points; trusting in your highest guidance to make the decisions that are best for you will yield the most positive outcomes. We are reminded that everything is always working out for us, and that the universe is conspiring in our favor, regardless of how things appear to be on the surface. Today, we may become aware of hidden meanings and forces at work, even within the seemingly ordinary and unimportant. We may be rewriting our thinking in ways that benefit us. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us sixteen and seven. Sixteen brings energies that facilitate harmony, balance, peace, and love. We may see these energies increasing in our personal and career relationships. Leaning into the warmth of community and familial support provides us with strength and solid foundations, a springboard from which to launch new manifestations from a place of steady footing that ensures our best success. With the seven bringing in energies of good fortune, we are sure to succeed. Happiness, growth, positive change, and welcome manifestations are on their way now. We will soon begin to see, if we have not already, amplified outcomes that bring us increased success and forward momentum in the things that matter to us. We are guided to trust where our interests lie and nurture ourselves intellectually, reading and pursuing courses of study that will broaden our horizons and enhance our future possibilities. 

Mantra: This day, I will make powerful improvements in things that are of importance to me. Today, I am advancing in ways that support my highest path and purpose. I am rising up and elevating in every way.

Today is the first day of the first month and the first day of the new year. Today marks the beginning of a brand new cycle. We are guided to write down, speak aloud, or otherwise get clear on what we would like this year to bring, what we desire to create this year, and what we would like to experience in the days, weeks, and months ahead.  Writing down goals now sets our intentions for the rest of the year. Just as our dreams and goals are always growing, changing, shifting, and developing, so too can our goals. Grounding in this now moment, wherever you are and whenever you are reading this, know that you can establish new goals. This now moment is all we ever have and we can create and manifest from this time, now, wherever we are. We are reminded of our power to create and we are asked to reclaim our power and our sovereignty. Taking back our power is partially about taking ownership of our path, and realizing that life doesn’t happen to us, but rather, we are in control of our own destiny. We have the power and the ability to shape our lives as we wish. Declarations are indicated now. When we declare to the universe what we want to manifest in our lives, the changes we wish to create, and otherwise set our intentions—whether that is for joy, success, abundance, new relationships, financial stability, freedom, or anything else—we are planting the seeds of intention that will begin to grow and gather momentum. 

2021 is a number five year. Twenty and twenty-one together create a numeric sequence of progression, indicating progress and forward movement. Twenty and twenty-one indicate partnership and progress, new beginnings arising from collaborations, and manifestations of the new that are fruitful, beneficial, and generative. These partnerships can be between us and our higher selves, us and our allies in spirit, and between us and our allies and collaborators here on the earth plane. This year, we can expect progress, continued change that lends to our growth and expansion, and tremendous soul growth. This deep level of growth and transformation is often not without discomfort; as the caterpillar experiences a period of compression and constraint within the cocoon, it is exactly these circumstances that allow it to transform and become something greater. It is this constriction and these circumstances that allow it to reshape its entire structure and being, to become more than it has ever been or known before, and to develop the wings that will allow it to fly. When we are ready, in divine right timing (remembering that we ourselves are divine and this timing is also up to us), we will emerge from the cocoon, ready to fly. When we leave this constricted, 3D place, we will soar up above everything we have ever known before and arise, transformed, into higher levels of consciousness and awareness. From this higher perspective, we will ascend and be able to see more than we ever have before. 2021 adds up to five, and five is all about change, transformation, freedom, growth, expression, and expansion. Where 2020 was like a chrysalis, an incubator that allowed us to take the great journey within to know ourselves on deeper levels, 2021 is the year in which we will emerge. This is the year we will find our wings and learn to fly.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us seven, a number of spiritual gifts and abilities, good fortune, intellectual pursuits, expansion, inner strength, and manifestation. It is also a number that points to our life purpose and soul mission. It asks us to continue on our path, to persevere, and indicates success and the successful completion of missions, cycles, and journeys, as well as overcoming obstacles. It is a number of encouragement as well, and guides us to continue learning, growing, expanding, and attuning to our higher wisdom and intuition to seek growth in all areas and aspects of life. Today, we are encouraged to look at our successes and how far we have come, and to allow ourselves to feel appreciation for our own growth. We are never done growing, and we are eternal beings. Know that there are always opportunities for growth on the path ahead. When we do not resist growth and change, but instead allow it and allow ourselves to experience it and open to let it flow into our lives, the journey is much smoother and we can gain much more from the experience. Today’s strong message is to believe in yourself and know that you have what it takes to overcome all challenges and to rise up stronger, brighter, and better than ever before.

Mantra: I honor myself and my inner strength. I honor my successes and acknowledge how far I have come. I welcome growth, expansion, positive change, and freedom.

Today is the thirtieth day of the twelfth month. Three appears twice in the first two placements of today’s date, in the two and one of the month and in today’s date with a zero, which indicates zero-point manifestation, creating from the heart and the Source within, supported by the amplification of the doubled number three. Three is a number of expansion and manifestation, and thirty-three is closely aligned with the Ascended Masters (Jesus, Buddha, Quan Yin, Sanat Kumara, and Commander Ashtar, to name a few). This is a powerful day in which we can harness the full moon energies to clear, heal, release, and reset emotionally and spiritually. We are guided to call on our team of light, our team in spirit, to assist us in our transformation. We are in the midst of a great transition as we head further into the Great Awakening and an increase in light, both within us as we clear and heal so we can hold more illumination in our light bodies and on the planet as a whole, which is increasing in light as the old, heavier energies continue to clear and release from this reality. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us ten, a number of finality, closure, and completion. We have reached the end of a cycle and indeed are poised at the very brink of the current year, preparing to enter the new one. Now the energies are strongly supporting emotional closure and healing as we work toward our inner transformation. We are supported by a loving universe of infinite wisdom and intelligence and are guided to call on its support any time we need it. We are infinitely loved, supported, and protected. This is a time in which many are awakening to their innate soul gifts and abilities. As we do so, we are guided to look toward the light and welcome it into our hearts in increasing levels. As we are each of the light and are Sourced from it, we hold it deeply within us. As we bring in more light to fill our being, it strengthens us and connects us more strongly to the whole of who we are and to our truth. Note any dreams now as they may be guiding you to new knowledge or a deeper understanding of yourself and your path. Also note what comes to the surface to be cleared and healed; it is debris arising from the depths to be released. As we clear our waters, we make way for a smooth transition. We are sailing away from old hurts and grief and as we sail on calmer waters, a deep healing transforms us from the depths of our being. 

Mantra: I release the old and welcome all that is for my highest good with an open heart. I am continually strengthening in the light.

Today is the fifteenth day of the twelfth month. The number fifteen is symbolic of manifested change. Transformations are underway, and tremendous shifts are taking place. Sea-changes are happening now. Much of this change is happening within, and it is some of the greatest change of all. Supporting this through healing work and going within on a regular basis, and through practices like journaling and meditation, are ways of honoring ourselves. This is some of the most important work we can do when we are on the ascension path. If we are choosing light, transformation, and healing, we are choosing to ascend or rise above what was before. Now is a tremendous opportunity for growth, and we are asked to make use of this window from now until the 21st, when the energies are strongest. The work continues after that, of course, as we can always rise up higher and elevate in every way, and we can always heal on deeper and deeper levels.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us thirteen, and four. Thirteen can indicate groundbreaking change and karmic clearing. It is also a number of manifestation that indicates new opportunities may be at hand. These opportunities can be linked to the inner work we are doing, and as karma clears and we are able to hold more light because of our healing, we magnetize opportunities to come to us and become more aligned to our life purpose and soul mission. We are asked to forgive anyone and everyone who has ever hurt us or wronged us in any way. As we do so, we are supporting the process of clearing karma. Forgiveness is a way of wiping the slate clean. As we release the baggage we were holding onto, we become lighter and free; this can come in the form of freedom through forgiveness. When we choose light, we are choosing to separate from what is not light. This choice and intention clears the path and makes way for us to forgive others and to clear and release karma with greater ease. We are asked now to lay down our burdens and to rise up like the phoenix, transmuting and transforming our energy through the fire of purification.

We are also asked to examine where change makes us uncomfortable, and why. In the why, there are healing lessons. Knowing where we need to heal is a great gift that allows us to make significant forward progress. Today we are guided strongly to monitor our thoughts and to stay focused on the positive, and also to be aware of our own energy. We can often feel when the energy shifts around us, and whether it is in a way that is helpful to us or not. This awareness is helpful to us in knowing when we need to more strongly protect our energy. We have sovereignty over ourselves and free will, and therefore have the ability to send any unwanted energies away from us. Visualizing ourselves surrounded in golden light can heal our energy and also strengthen it and provides us with powerful protection. Moving forward, not in fear—never in fear—but in love, strengthens our energy. Where we find fear, we are asked to envision its removal as we hold it out in front of us and surround it with a ball of golden light that transmutes it into something beautiful.

Mantra: I allow myself freedom through forgiveness. I choose love. I bless my energy with unconditional love, with grace, and with purified source energy. I bless my communications with truth, clarity, integrity, kindness, and compassion.

Today is the thirteenth day of the twelfth month. The number thirteen indicates new beginnings, opportunities, and manifestations. It also carries energies of expansion, growth, communications, and joy. The one and three together bring energies of four, a number of stability, success, integrity, solid foundations, trust, and wisdom. Today, on the eve of the full solar eclipse, we can expect transitions and major changes that are for our highest good. These changes may clear karma and usher in sweeping transformations that are needed in our lives. These shifts may bring us exactly what we have been asking for, although perhaps not quite in the way we expected it. When we remember that the universe doesn’t make mistakes, when we trust divine timing, and when we stand solid in the knowing that everything is always working out for our highest good, regardless of how it may look on the outside, we can rest securely in trust, faith, and comfort, and in the knowing that all will be well. We may be on the cusp of major life changes now that will improve things for us in significant ways. We have reached a tipping point, as the old is ushered out to make way for the new and improved. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us eleven, and two. Eleven carries a gateway energy that we are now passing through, which aligns with the transformational 12/12 to 12/21 portal we are now in. We are moving forward rapidly and powerful changes are taking place behind the scenes, building the energies for manifestations in the spiritual and physical. Two is a number of partnership, and indicates our co-creative union with our higher selves, and with our allies in the nonphysical. Especially now, it is of the utmost importance that we monitor our thoughts and stay in a high vibrational space. We serve ourselves, and others, best when we stay focused on the positive, and when we open up to the innate joy that lies within each one of us. When we sit with the intention of finding the good-feeling place within our hearts, we gain awareness through how easy it is, or not, for us to find those good feelings; this is a solid indicator of how much we still have to heal. If our hearts are blocked with pain or energies from the past, or anything we are holding onto that is not of the light, it is a gift to have the awareness that those energies are there so we can shift and clear them out and open up to joy. This is a healing process that is similar to clearing the underbrush from a path; this process allows us to reach our destination, and to see the way ahead with clarity. At the end of that path is joy, and this is the joy within. 

This is one of the greatest ways we can honor ourselves, to heal and clear what does not serve us so we can easily reach a place of alignment with our true selves, our inner being, which is pure joy and unconditional love. The easier it is for us to reach that state, the more power we have over our own lives, state of awareness, and vibration. The more we are in alignment with our highest path and purpose, the more we can receive the wisdom of infinite intelligence, tap into pure source energy, and align with the universal forces that are conspiring for our highest good. And, the more we clear and heal, the more we open up our clairgifts. The benefits of this are multidimensional. Not only does this opening allow us to attune more to divine wisdom, but it also allows us to be more discerning of people and situations, to have greater clarity in every aspect of our own lives, and to be more powerful creators and managers of our own energetic and vibrational state. This attunement empowers us to be the magnificent creators we came here to be. We can begin this healing and clearing process simply by intending it. Sitting with the intention of healing from the heart in a quiet or meditative space for a little while each day will have powerful positive effects that are compounded over time.

Mantra: I see with clarity where it will benefit me to heal and grow. I welcome healing in my heart and positive, powerful transformations that are in alignment with my highest good.

Today is the twelfth day of the twelfth month. Today’s 12/12 portal brings in powerful energies that are supporting humanity in its ascension. The healing and clearing we have been doing all year continues through the end of month with potent impact as we are continuing to clear and release karma, old timelines, family histories, old DNA structures, and densities to bring in more light. Anchoring in the light is important as we make room for more light within our energetic and cellular structures through the healing work we are doing. This is preparing us for ascension and allows us to more fully receive the light codes and energetic upgrades that are coming through in this portal, which is strongest now through 12/21, the day of the solstice. This work is vital to help us to bring more peace and light unto the world, as we first find the peace and healing within; the journey to humanity’s ascension begins within each one of us as individuals. In this way, the journey of one is the journey of all. This is especially important work for lightworkers and wayshowers, who, when activated and in alignment with the higher self, are more powerful than millions who are not in alignment.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us ten, a number of completion and fulfillment that also, like twelve, indicates the ending of one cycle and the subsequent beginning of the next. We may be awakening to a new consciousness, to aspects of ourselves that were dormant within us, energetically and in our DNA, that are switching on now. We are being activated in many ways and can support and strengthen this activation through daily meditation, which allows us to hold more light. Like the caterpillar enters into the chrysalis to die to its old self and be reborn into something magnificent, we are rising up. This is a time of transformation that is especially powerful for the lightworker. The bringers of light must necessarily encounter the darkness. Many of us at this time are experiencing internal, spiritual transformations that are opening up and strengthening our gifts and abilities. We must die to the old in order to awaken to the new. We must go within (the underworld, the chrysalis) to emerge transformed from the cocoon, to be able to spread our wings and fly. The caterpillar goes from crawling on the ground to soaring above it all. This creature holds its potential, possibilities, and beauty within itself. It only has to be ready to go within and to die to what it was in order to be reborn. We are asked to be the light unto the darkness, even when we are surrounded by it. We illuminate from within; this light comes from the heart. When we cannot see with our eyes, we must see with the heart, and shine our light brightly to illuminate all. We are more powerful and more magnificent than we may ever know from our human perspective. It is important to trust this, to allow ourselves to soar with confidence, freedom, and a knowing of our own worthiness so that we may rise up into our highest path and purpose and pave the way for a better future—for the bright, new earth that is becoming.

Mantra: I welcome powerful, positive shifts and transformations. I am continuing to rise and welcome more light as I release densities and clear that which does not serve me. I shine my light brightly for all to see, and my light grows brighter and brighter all the time.

Today is the eleventh day of the twelfth month. Eleven is a gateway number that brings forth the energies that are preparing us to enter tomorrow’s 12/12 portal. This transformative passage spans from 12/12 to 12/21, the day of the solstice. The divine reset point of the full solar eclipse on 12/14 flows through energies of powerful healing and transformation, and promises to shake loose anything that is not working for us as individuals and as a collective. What is not meant for us needs to go, and now is the time to set intentions, if you have not done so already, to release what is not appropriate for you and to welcome powerful healing and transformation.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us nine, a number of endings. Twelve is a number indicating cycles, and this end-of-cycle energy is carried throughout the month of December. Today, we benefit from turning our attention to closures and finales and tuning into what is relevant for us right now. This flows into where we are headed, and we are guided to set intentions and goals for our desired path in the new year. When considering what we would like to happen for us in 2021, we can ask ourselves a few questions: What lights me up? What brings me joy? What new can I feel is ready to enter my life? You may have the sense of something wonderful that is on the brink of becoming. What is helpful now: Trusting that it will come to you in divine right timing and trusting the universe to deliver it to you in the best and highest way possible, then releasing it to the universe. Flowing into joy, peace, and unity consciousness is highlighted now.

During this energetic gateway and at all times, the power of our thoughts cannot be understated. Every thought we have informs our vibration. When we catch ourselves having a negative thought, we can choose to shift it in that moment. If we are looking at something in a negative way, we can shift that by finding a positive aspect to focus on instead. When we witness a behavior that we find less than satisfying, we can find appreciation for the fact that the being expressing that behavior is simply at a certain stage in their journey and may be working through something, clearing it in order to reach higher levels of understanding. Or perhaps their mission for this lifetime is to play a certain role in order to create change or awareness. In a state of appreciation, we open the path for all good things to flow to us, but we block it with any sort of negativity. Today is a powerful day for us to set intentions and focus on where we want to go, without looking at where we currently are or worrying about how we will get there. Energetically aligning with where we want to be will get us there so much faster.

Mantra: I can always find something to appreciate. I choose to think the highest and best thoughts possible in any given situation. I welcome healing and positive transformation.

Today is the fifth day of the twelfth month. Five can be a pivot point, and brings energies that help to manifest change, expansion, and new developments. It can also bring clarity that lets us know where change is needed. In every challenge, there is an opportunity. Whether challenges serve to alert us to issues, to bring us greater awareness of our own vibration or clarity on our state of being, to help us to know the importance of protecting our energy, to guide us back to our path, or to steer us away from certain people or situations, challenges can be valuable to us on many levels and often serve as guideposts to help us along the way.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date yields twelve, and three. Twelve is synchronous with this twelfth month of the year and serves to bring our awareness to the concluding cycle we are currently in. If we have been on the healing path, we are guided to continue clearing away the energetic debris and strengthen our aura and energy field through daily meditations; if we have not yet begun intentional healing, we are guided to begin the process now in preparation for the new cycle that is becoming. Meditation can help us to heal, and brings in more light to take the place of what we have cleared. As we are beings of light at our source, at the core of who we are, this is a return to the light and a remembrance of who we are through an anchoring of the light. When we heal, we make room for what does serve us, and as we invite in more light, visualizing it surrounding us and filling our field, then entering through our crown in a column of light, we not only strengthen and stabilize our energy, but this assists us in the healing process and helps to strengthen the light within us and anchor it into our being. Through this process, we gain a remembrance of who we truly are and strengthen our gifts and abilities gradually with every meditation and visualization, increasing the light we are able to hold and building the momentum. This is a way of pivoting our energy as we shift more into the light and with this, transition into the new that is becoming—the new cycle, a new era, and a new and better state of being.

Three carries energies of community, celebration, and manifestation. Spending time with those we care about and reaching out to friends and family, even through a phone call or text message, can be rewarding. We are guided to reach out with love to those in our lives. We can send them light through our intention. After strengthening our own energy through meditation, we are better prepared to send them a stronger and cleaner energy. We can picture them surrounded by light and ask that they receive healing according to their highest good and to the highest and greatest extent to which they are willing to receive these energies. This technique is also useful in healing relationships and clearing unwanted energies, streamers, and cords that are not for your highest good. As we near the end of a major cycle, we are supported in clearing karma, and are encouraged to do so. We can do this through setting intentions, prayer, visualization, meditation, or a combination of any of these. We can ask for guidance from our nonphysical allies as to whether there is any karma to be cleared, information around it such as who and what situations it is connected to, and how best to go about clearing and/or resolving it. This can be an important step in our healing and will allow us to move on from situations, whether physically or energetically, that do not serve us so we can elevate and move into what is better for us, and to continue moving forward into our highest path and purpose with greater freedom, strength, and clarity.

Mantra: I welcome the positive change that is ready to flow to me. I clear, release, and transmute all energies that do not serve me and welcome more light into my field. I strengthen in wisdom, awareness, and understanding with every breath I take.

Today is the thirtieth day of the eleventh month. Three is a celebratory number of joy, expression, expansion, creativity, community, and manifestation. It can indicate friendships, growth, and increase on many levels of your life. Zero is a number associated with the God-force and zero-point manifestation, a point of creation from which all things are possible. It reminds us of our powerful creative potential, and that we are the creators of our own realities. It also reminds us of the power of our thoughts. Our thoughts are like beacons, a radio broadcast signal we send to the universe to tell it what to deliver to us. The tarot card The Fool is associated with 0, indicating fresh starts, a reset point, and new beginnings. The number 30 brings aspects of happy new beginnings and reminds us to look at what we are creating and the developments in our lives with positivity, enthusiasm, and excitement for what is to come.

Today’s full moon and eclipse are significant in light of the aspects of the number 30. Full moons bring great healing, and eclipses are, like the number zero, a reset point. They often bring sweeping, powerful changes and shake loose what is outdated and what is not working or for your highest good in order to allow those energies to be swept out of your life. This clearing and energetic reset provides a stronger platform upon which can build anew. Today’s eclipse is a partial or penumbral lunar eclipse. Because it is a partial eclipse, its energies are somewhat lessened. This gives us an opportunity to prepare for the crumbling and release of energies that need to leave us and also offers time to go within. It is important for us to take time to do some self-exploration and really look at what is not serving us so we can set intentions to release it now. Journaling can be especially helpful with this, as we write down what we want to release from our lives and burn the paper to set the energies free.

All of this is in preparation for the full solar eclipse occurring just two weeks from now on December 14. Where the moon is associated with the feminine, receiving energies, the sun is associated with the masculine. Any inward looking done now through the next several days will help prepare us as we gain awareness of what could be better, how we would like to improve, and any changes we would like to make. The intentions we set now will pave the way for a great clearing, release, and transmutation of the old energies that will will be swept away powerfully over the next few weeks as the moon wanes, leading up to the solar eclipse. During the solar eclipse, we can set forth new intentions, planting those seeds in the fertile darkness of the new moon and watch them build and grow during the waxing moon phase leading up to the end of the year. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date yields nine, which underscores the closure and finality of this time. It asks us to release so we can heal, to clear so we can welcome anew what is fresh and for our benefit and betterment. We are asked to seek and to expect improvements on every level now. Our knowing that these things are coming to us and developing for us will draw them to us like a magnet. A major cycle on earth is ending, for Gaia and for the collective; the new one begins on Dec. 21–the day of the solstice and the tipping point of darkness into light. As we seek improvements in every area of our lives and visualize ourselves rising up into improved, expanded, elevated versions of ourselves, this uplift is felt by the collective. When one rises, we all rise. The expansion of one is the expansion of all.

Mantra: I release what does not serve me and welcome changes for the better. I am expanding, growing, and improving on every level and in every area of my life. I welcome brighter, new, fresh beginnings.
