I used my Tarot Mucha deck to ask how we wrapped up 2017 and what we learned over the past year. The card that I drew was the Queen of Pentacles. In meditating on this card, I took it to mean that 2017 was a year of developing strengths and power in order to build stability, especially for women. Since the Pentacles have to do with finances, job, career and things of that nature, this was most influential in the workplace. Women were forced to find their voice and speak up about things that eroded their self-worth or detracted from their own sense of stability and safety in the world. Men had to draw on their more feminine qualities of sympathy, compassion, understanding and empathy for others. Some were challenged to face their own imbalances and asked to speak their truth to better support others who are different than themselves. Both men and women saw their counter-parts more clearly as the veil that covered our differences was lifted. We were all forced to face aspects of ourselves and our society that we may have found less than flattering. The Queen of Pentacles is a strong and self-assured woman. She knows her value and brings strength to those around her. She is not afraid to honor her body and to show her caring and nurturing nature, but is not one to be trifled with. 2017 was a year of learning to balance the male and female energies of ourselves and the world around us, and while the energy of this card is still in play at the close of 2017, she helped us overcome our fears of speaking up for our beliefs and for one another. Hopefully, a more fair, balanced and stable culture will develop from these lessons in the upcoming year. I will be doing a New Year’s spread soon and I am hoping for lots of good news! In the meantime, many blessings to you on this New Year’s Eve.
