Recently, a friend asked me if I felt like the energy was changing regarding Trump and all the havoc and horror he is causing us. I told her yes, because my spidey senses tell me that this year is going to bring forth more details about how evil and corrupt this unelected “leader” is. After I meditated and pulled a card for January, and I pulled a not-so-great card, I decided to throw a past, present, future spread on Trump. The first spread was so positive for him that I decided I must have done something wrong, so I reshuffled and did another past, present, future spread.
It was even better than the first spread.
All I can do is apologize that so many idiots didn’t fight harder for our democracy back in 2016 and then apologize again when I tell you that the card I pulled for January is the Five of Wands.
This card is all about struggle. If there is anything that is not going well in your life right now, be prepared for the difficulties to continue through January. There is not a lot you can do when this card shows up except prepare yourself for the struggle to come.
If it feels like someone is lying to you, they are. If you feel like you are receiving strange or misinformation, trust your gut. Use this month to surround yourself only with those you trust and love. I find that most people, myself included, are exhausted from the past three years of non-stop hell with all that is happening in the world. We could all use a little downtime as we start the new year.
Know that while Trump is still riding high and getting away with crime after crime after crime, I will spend a good portion of this year looking at his administration and our current political environment and keep you all up to date.
I feel like I have been living the Five of Wands since I lost my job in August. Despite sending out hundreds of resumes and talking to everyone I know in the corporate world, I am still unemployed. There does not seem to be much use for an “old” lady with lots of smarts and skills. So, I have decided that I am going to start reading Tarot again on a regular basis. If I get contract work, I will juggle my time between business and tarot, but I’ve been receiving sign after sign that it is time for me to travel a new path. You can contact me through social media; the details are on my website at ellenblackwriter.com.
Despite that we are starting out this year on a less-than-stellar note, this does not mean the entire year will be awful. Make sure to focus on your well-being and that of those you love in January. Here’s to a better February and beyond.
Happy new year!
