Hey there Beautiful Soul,
I know it’s been a while since I last wrote on here, but life got extremely busy and let’s just say that a lot was happening in my personal life so I had to shift my attention a little bit, but to those of you who follow me on Instagram, you know I try to stay very active on there, which was my priority for the last couple of months. It’s December already and Christmas is almost around the corner! That’s crazy right, how is it Christmas already? I feel like summer just came to an end, or is it just me?
But let me tell you, with the year of 2018 coming to an end, I’ve been feeling the weight of this past year tremendously for the last few days. It’s like my soul has been reflecting what it went through the past twelve months and it’s bringing up many emotions. I’m not going to lie, I had a good cry today, what felt like, out of nowhere (don’t judge, I’m also very hormonal right now, as it’s that time of the month again. Gotta love those waves of emotions that float over you like an icy snowstorm!) and while at first I was confused as to why I was crying all of a sudden, I soon felt a relief because of it. Suddenly I caught myself thinking of all the things –good and bad, that I’ve been confronted with in 2018 and I felt like the tears were a form of release, as my soul was telling me that it was finally over. “It’s done. You can let it all go now. Leave it in the past.” What an experience that was! It reminded me that I wanted to check in with you in more depth than just through a post on Instagram. I wanted to sit down and pull a couple of cards for the past of 2018 and a few for the new year of 2019 as well. The picture with all the cards I pulled is down there below, so you can look at it while reading!
The Past of 2018: Phew, what a year this has been! So much happened for a lot of us. I feel like this was a year of ups and downs and reminders from the Universe, which weren’t always the nice gentle ones, the Universe kicked our butts a lot this past year, but all for our own good of course. Thinking about it now while looking at the cards in front of me, I feel like 2018 was so rough for so many of us, because we had to be prepared for 2019. In the end it all makes sense and in a few months lots of us will have this aha-moment of realization what our experiences in 2018 were really about. It wasn’t to taunt us, no we had to be made ready for what’s to come! That’s a huge message I’m sensing here. By the way, just for reference – the four cards on the bottom of the picture are the ones I pulled for 2018 and the three on top are for 2019.
I kind of want to start with The Hierophant, because it blends into what I’ve been talking about already. 2018 was the year we have been made more aware of spiritually. Some of you might have started to get into a more spiritual lifestyle in the first place and others probably got deeper into it, than they were before. Including more things into your daily practices or diving into and learning new topics that are backed up spiritually, f.e. astrology, numerology, tarot, meditation, yoga and the list goes on. A lot of us were guided extremely by, like I said before, being confronted in good or not so great ways. A sentence that you might have used plenty of times this past year probably was: “I feel like I’m being tested.” – and guess what, you probably were! That’s why, for a lot of you, your path might have changed a bit, or got re-directed a bit (The Path from the Queen of the Moon Oracle Deck). The Four of Swords shows how 2018 has left you in the end or multiple times during the year. You’re in desperate need of a time out, because you’ve been feeling drained emotionally or/and physically. Everything that has happened (the good and the not so great) was a lot to deal with and feeling stressed over some of it, especially with Mercury going retrograde from November 17th to December 6th, life might have been even crazier lately. I know it has been for me. It’s safe to say that this was the most intense Mercury Retrograde I have experienced so far! Thank god that’s over! But 2018 had its good sides as well (Beauty from the Queen of the Moon Oracle Deck). We’ve been opening ourselves up to new things that have enriched our lives in a great way and we can definitely already see the beauty in that. I also feel like a lot of you have grown more confident in your own skin. Maybe you changed the way you look or you worked out more often than usual. This is definitely something to be proud of and to take on with you into the new year!
The Future of 2019: The new year is looking very promising to a lot you you! Starting of with the Ace of Cups being an omen of unexpected opportunities, especially in the relationship department as well as emotionally. 2019 will bring a lot of positive change into your life! If you’re single and looking for a relationship, it’s looking very promising that you will find a partner this year. You also want to make sure that you are truly open to someone special crossing your path, through positive thinking and manifestation. In case you’re already happily taken, your relationship might grow deeper in the coming year, possibly taking the next step with your partner. I’m feeling this will be a great year for an engagement or even a wedding! Emotionally, the Ace of Cups will bring more connection to yourself and your soul. In 2019 you will feel more confident and at one with yourself. The Six of Wands is a great sign of success in your ventures as well. Again, I feel like 2019 will be a lot more different than 2018. 2018 was about getting ready and reminded and pushed, while 2019 things will come into fruition and goals will be realized and reached successfully. A lot of you will experience a start of something or a beginning of some sort and the Six of Wands is telling you that you will be triumphant with whatever it is you’re going to start. The last card is Nourishment from the Queen of the Moon Oracle Deck, which I’ve been obsessed with lately. This card is telling us, that not only will our plans come into fruition, when we put enough work into them, they also will be ready to harvest sooner that you think. And while this means that there will be a lot going on in our daily lives, we need to remember to nourish ourselves. If you have to cut something out of your day, don’t let it be valuable down-time for yourself! Take care of your mind, body and soul without an excuse!
So that’s it. I hope you enjoyed this little view over the past and new year. If it resonated please feel free to get in touch with me by commenting down below or messaging me on Instagram @oraclemoonreadings! I’m wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Sending you Love & Light ,
