The Week Ahead : 1 – 7 January 2017

Welcome to 2017!!!

Wishing you gigantic love, happiness, fun, health, success and inner discovery:)
May your cup be ever-flowing, may your sword cut to the truth, may your wand channel your greatest dreams into reality and may your pentacles provide you with all the resources to realise your highest self:)

But first…. May you rest deeply, heal completely and replenish your soul in the remaining holidays.

As we move ahead, we release all that does not serve our highest good – the bad habits, procrastination, unsupportive friends, unhealthy boundaries, self-limitations, worries, fears and anxieties.

In the same way that we can’t endlessly laugh at the same jokes, we also can’t endlessly fixate on what went ‘wrong’. There is an opportunity to evolve and do things better.

The surge of new creative energy is infectious. This is an opportunity to renew or ignite commitments, passions and ideas. It is time to optimise this wave of change and use this momentum to move in your desired direction.

I have resolved to produce a series of short videos to demystify tarot for new tarot enthusiasts. I am excited about this creative project. It takes me back to my years as a drama & film student. I loved the adrenalin of live performances and creating original works of art.

Now, getting to the business of tarot guidance, what can we expect for 2017?

In numerology, 2017 is a year 1. This correlates with the Major Arcanas – Fool, Magician & Sun. The fool symbolises a new beginning, fresh start, taking a bold care-free step forward in your journey and more spontaneity. The Magician symbolises manifestation of your will and intent in the material world.

The Sun  is a reminder that ‘hope springs eternal’. It is the vital force within us that feels joy, happiness, accomplishment.

The Aces also weigh in in the interpretation of a Universal Year 1 as all Aces are 1s. These are powerful propelling forces of innovation, leadership, entrepreneurship, individualism, creation, breakthroughs.

It is important to be aware of these gifts that are available to optimise opportunities. There is always the risk of misusing opportunities for tyrannical selfish gain. This can also be a brute force, if unrestrained,  can cause chaos, upheaval and challenges.

In order to calculate your personal year, you can reduce your date of birth to a single digit by adding up all the numbers and adding  one to it. The final number will give you a better understanding of how this year will influence you in numerology.

You can refer to my previous numerology blog for more information.

A card that embraces new ideas and curiosity. There is still much to learn. Pace yourself this week. Keep your eye on the ball. Although there is a certain momentum to act, be mindful that all the information is not yet at your disposal. Open your mind up to being the observer and the student. Demonstrate maturity. Ignore gossip. There is a overwhelming environmental message to Protect and Conserve Mother Nature.

Wishing you a great week.

The Week Ahead : 8 – 14 August 2016

The results of the Municipal Elections in South Africa bears testimony to our dynamic democracy.

The 9th of August is celebrated as our National Women’s Day. The 8th of March is celebrated as the International Women’s Day.

Can you imagine a world where women in leadership positions reflected the demography of the country? – actual positions of decision-making in the public and private spheres. Can you imagine a world where women are not conflicted between raising her family and having a career? Are we held up to higher standards than men?

Are we raising our daughter and sons to be dynamic leaders and citizens equally?

When we climb up the ladder, do we enable other women to follow or do we throw away the ladder?

As a single mother, I have been fortunate to have supportive bosses. Being a single mother in SA is a common experience, how do we respond to this social norm?

What role does business have in creating an enabling environment for working mothers?

Women and children experience the greatest brunt of poverty and inequality. STATS SA highlighted that irrespective of household size, female-headed households were more likely than male-headed households to have no employed person in the household. The economic gap must be addressed.

Sexual and reproductive health rights has always been a critical priority for women. HIV is on the increase, mainly among young women. I listen to stories about Mavuso stokvel and wonder what is the role of men in women empowerment?

Gender transformation is widely nuanced. Society is diverse. We live in exciting times where we are free to express ourselves without fearing discrimination and prejudice. Given our vibrant democracy, what role does society have in embracing individuality and promoting equality?

Tarot Card of the Week

Ace of Pentacles

The Ace of Pentacles denotes divine gift of power and practical application in physical matters. It reflects accomplishment in areas of home, business, career or anywhere we need stability. It can also point to a new opportunity for enterprise.

Good news about money may be forthcoming. If you’re thinking about changing jobs, this a good sign.

 The Fool

The Tarot system is multi-layered as a visual language of inner experience.

The Fool is the first Major Arcana. The Major Arcanas reflect life lessons that are like destiny cards (karma). You will need to embrace the lesson if you want to move forward.

Zero symbolises the space before manifesting (the unborn spirit), nothing and everything. No beginning and no end.

The Fool represents a new beginning, something new, a fresh start, a new direction. It requires blind faith to take a risk. Be open to receive. Change is unchanging. The Fool is free-spirited. The Fool can imply a new journey or a change in attitude that is required. He represents spontaneity, fun, surprise and untapped potential.

The Fool does not overthink things. Perhaps, you are starting something new without much knowledge or foresight.

It is important to read cards in conjunction with the surrounding cards in a spread.

Although, the Fool is depicted as a young man, it applies equally to women. In fact all the tarot cards are not necessarily gender specific, it mainly reflects types of energy.

The Fool asks you to be in the present moment.

Ask yourself whether you are following your dreams and passions?
