After watching Doreen Virtue’s 2014 Tarot reading and finding so much that I resonated with, I decided to do a personal one of my own. I might add that I pulled the cards twice as, the first time, I had failed to light a candle, which I felt was important to the reading (don’t ask me why, I just did). Of course, it involved chasing the little cat I’m cat sitting off the desk as he didn’t have the sense to leave the candle alone, like my own cats do.
I’ll just comment on the first pull because it probably had some significance which I chose to ignore for now. It contained an extraordinary number of Major Arcana cards, which the one I chose to document did not.
But without further ado, here’s my version of 2014:

January sees me standing on my own with a great deal of energy and
drive, though I’m perceiving that I need to pull back into myself, protecting
what is mine. I must be cautious to
avoid pulling back too far or I might miss opportunities. This will be a very productive month both
work-wise and creatively as I’m focused and inclined towards reclusiveness to
some degree. The key areas of
importance here are to guard against being unduly defensive and protective.
Cups: February sees me in a deeply
introspective state, continuing the relative reclusiveness of January while
bringing my heart to the forefront of my thoughts. Creativity is still very much a part of my
time and efforts, but matters of my heart become increasingly important if, as
yet, unsatisfied. I may find that I’m,
as yet, unaware of growing attachments as I reside deeply within myself and my
own, personal energies.
areas of my life and making some difficult decisions as to what I must keep and
what I must let go if I’m to continue to grow and evolve. It could also involve the editing of my book,
when I’ll need to make some seemingly brutal cuts and changes to ensure
continuity and readability of my first published work. I could also see a drastic alteration in the
path I set in motion last November, and implemented in early December. It may become clear that some of what I took
upon myself is not, ultimately in support of my greater good, and I’ll need to
either change how I’m handling some things, or give them up in as professional
and considerate a manner as possible.
Swords: In April, there will be definite
differences of opinion as to what I should keep and what should be left
behind. Whether this applies to my book
or to my accounting work, I will be inclined to guard what is near and dear to
me, perhaps losing sight of what is truly best for me in the long run. I will be inclined to want it all, but will
know that isn’t possible. I see this, in
part, as a continuation of the editing and culling process which begins in
March. All in all, it is important that
I weigh my choices carefully, listen to input from others and be willing to let
go of things I’d rather not, for the good of my career, my personal life and my
Pentacles: Input from an unexpected but
welcome source with fresh ideas will help me get things into perspective and
help me make decisions which will positively impact my financial health. I have laid the groundwork well, but mustn’t
overlook the caring and feeding process of my ideas and the responsibilities I’ve
taken on. New ideas will have been
planted as well, and I will be moving forward with some of them while continue
to cultivate those already growing and thriving. Accept
advice and refrain from becoming defensive when my work is criticized.
Pentacles : June sees all of my efforts
enjoying unprecedented success. My
accounting side business is thriving and taking up just the right amount of
time. My book is published and selling
while work progresses smoothly on subsequent books. It’s even possible that another of the books
I have in progress has been completed, edited and published. Beware that the pace with which things are
happening leads to overindulgence or lack of personal care as I ride the waves
of success, both financial and personal.
Goals are certainly met, but there is much work ahead if I’m going to
stay at the top of my game. More decisions
may need to be made regarding how to effectively manage my work load.
shaker” will be at the forefront of my life in July. This could be myself, a friend who has been
encouraging me to follow my dream, or maybe even an editor or publisher who is
interested in further promoting my work.
This woman holds a lot of power, though she wields it with grace. She has the midas touch when it comes to
creative endeavors and it seems that everything in which she has a hand thrives
and grows, bringing nourishment and enlightenment to many. She is a loving and giving soul, though she
can be tough and decisive when the situation requires it.
wish for”. I’ll be stepping off the precipice
into the realities of the choices I made months before, diving into a world
which moves a great deal faster than I might have imagined. It could be a month of book tours, or
editorial meetings for one of my new projects.
It could be that my remodeling project finds new life, or that I find
myself moving to someplace more suited to the new lifestyle I’ve acquired. Whatever it might be, it will be in my best
interests to be a little naïve and trusting, especially of the Universe and its
plans for my future. A new me is about
to be born, and the crazy, wild horse stampede pace of the year will only
increase from this point forward.
Pentacles : As I’ve sown, so shall I
reap. This isn’t a time to cease the
hard work I’ve initiated this year. In
fact, the month may call for an even greater increase in effort and dedication
to my craft. Responsibilities continue
to mount, delegation may be required and the number of projects on my plate
continue to grow…and I am thriving as never before! I’m so in love with the work I do that it’s
hardly work at all, but purpose and love and sheer joy!
plate, October shows yet another creative endeavor beginning. Like the others, this one will progress
quickly, burning up the path as it moves forward. Divine connections will be easily recognized
and utilized in this new project which looks to be for the Greater Good. I will be guided to expend more effort
towards helping others and supporting the causes which are most important to
Cups: Celebrating with friends and
family and those who have been instrumental in bringing about my many successes
will be the keynote of November. It will
be a time to show my gratitude to all who have pushed, prodded, supported,
encouraged and applauded me along the way.
I will be guided towards new and beautiful ways to express my gratitude,
both privately and publicly.
Swords: There will be a sense of being
overwhelmed, of having too many responsibilities and too many demands being
made upon me, only exacerbated by the frenetic, holiday season. It is important for me to realize that many
of those demands are being made by myself, and to practice kindness to me,
first, taking a few things off of my plate, some permanently, and some until after
the holidays when social engagements diminish and preparations for family and
friends are complete. Once again, it
could require me to delegate and to take time away from my writing to address
my other responsibilities.

pitfalls I must overcome, but in the end, it will be a truly amazing year! (and what is success without some frustration
and a few challenges to overcome?)
