December comes with a sigh of relief, a desire to shed this invisible burden we have carried for so long, to just loosen up a little. If you have big plans for action at work or to even have some party action – do reconsider, as the cards call for some quiet time. But first, there is a need for some acknowledgement – to recognise it has been a tough year, it has been a lonely year, it has been a fearful year, and it has been far too long. The introspection also calls for us to perceive the gifts we have received but that comes later. First, it is important to have that rant with the universe. You can continue to be strong and brave, expressing what was tough for you need not take away from it. The end of the year is always a good time to take stock of things and it’s lovely to have all your blessings in that list but it is a disservice to not include the hurts and pains as well.
The Hermit is the main card for the month of December and it asks you to spend some time in introspection. The Hermit is not a bechara type of guy, he is the guy who has ascended the mountain. He’s been there, done that, bought himself the tshirt and is now taking time out to evaluate his next move. Nothing in the Hermit implies that there has been any wrong move or distress in his past. It’s a move of mastery to take this time out, to see how far you have come, to see the circumstances that brought you here and to know how you feel at this point in time. After all of this is done, comes the time to count your blessings. The end of the year is the perfect time for gratitude which is why Thanksgiving happens around this time.
The 5 of Pentacles does signify a time of hardship and strife but there is a big glowing light right upfront which says that the hardship was needed to get to the bright light. it is also a reminder to not be so focussed on the hardship that you miss the sanctuary right in front of you.
The last card is a spiritual message which is going to make you raise your brows. This one says that you may need to use some shortcuts to get what you want ie. ghee koh nikalne ke liye ungli tedi karni padegi :). Maybe you will be in a spot where your conscience will raise some questions for you. Maybe you will feel like what you are doing is manipulative or not exactly above board. In this case, follow the letter of the law and not the spirit. Don’t do anything illegal for sure but bend a little on your ideals and conscience for the greater good – yours or someone else’s.
It should be a chilled out month with low action and low demands. Strive to keep it that way is what the cards are saying.
I shall be chilling out too now for a month or so. I am available for personal readings and bookings are open for the personal annual reading for 2021. That’s a longish reading, takes about two hours. This one will start with the lessons and gifts of 2020 :).
See you next year and have a lovely December ❤
