Cut cards/initial energy: 21. Waning Gibbous 5 | Resistance + Cantaloupe Dragon | Realign + 68. Mauve | Emotional Flexibility + 5 of Swords
We made it!! While 2020 was definitely a heavy load, it was necessary in order to reprioritize and develop the specific muscles needed to shoulder more than ever before, in very different ways than you’ve ever been asked to adapt. You’ve experienced the beginnings of total personal realignment, finding yourself reoriented towards your *true* passion, and finding yourself calmed by the emotional resilience and flexibility that has developed alongside learning to navigate and pull through the totally unexpected. You are now in a unique position where peace is on the horizon, and the process of sorting through who you’re not anymore and who you’re becoming is your main focus as you enter 2021 with all eyes open wide.
Shadow cards/underlying theme: 26. Waning Crescent 3 | Surrender + Celery Dragon | Renewal + 86. New Age | Evolution + XIX – The Sun
Yes, you’re ready to let go of everything that you know no longer supports the evolution of who you want to be. You can feel the energy of Renewal building, ready to provide the fibre your personal process needs to thrive and flow! Spiritual Balance is key but you’re already there, ready to lean in to the practices you’ve been exploring and allow that energy to come to the forefront of your constant consciousness. The New Age is here and things really are evolving — more and more will be illuminated to keep you on track and holding on to the excitement of what’s becoming possible for you Now.
Oracle Cards: 4. Waxing Crescent 2 | Acceptance + 6. Waxing Crescent 4 | Self-Love + Corn Dragon | Friends + 77. Shea | Beauty or Beast
The most important themes of 2021 will be Accepting that Self-Love is key — nothing can be given if you have nothing to give, and your heart is ready to be filled with the simple things that actually fulfill you in order to prepare you to receive beyond your wildest dreams. The theme of “getting by with a little help from your friends” continues this year, asking you to remember where your supports lie and to make the most of the beautiful relationships that lift you up and inspire you to be your very best. Persevere with what you know is Right — this year promises to help you flow towards Beauty and away from Beastliness. Ground yourself in softness and gentleness, and know that slowly but surely the hardness of the past several years is melting away.
Lesson of 2020: 5 of Cups
2020 forced you to look at Loss in a whole new way. Not only were people lost, but so was time, so was normalcy, so much that was previously taken for granted was stripped away, forcibly making you turn towards what *was* going right and what truly matters — again, the relationships where love flows freely, and where there is always a shoulder to cry on, a listening ear, and laughter that exceeds any type of medicine.
Energy of 2021: 8 of Swords reversed
I’ll take it! 2021 represents being freed from a rather insidious trap — the trap of the mind. This year finds you putting in the work to *really* break out of patterns of inauthenticity — it carries an energy of pure honesty, of setting aside what you know you cannot control and getting a firmer grip on what you absolutely can do to further your own healing process.
Best Advice: IX – The Hermit reversed
It’s time to come out of the shadows! 2021 wants you to share the work you did during all that time in your Inner World — share what you’ve been creating, even if that’s just a version of yourself that’s committed to staying strong and pushing through, now that you know you can survive insurmountable odds. Vibe so hard on the fact that *you made it,* and come down into the valley with all the perspective you’ve gained from everything you’ve learned.
January 2021: Ace of Swords
This year feels more “New Year-y” than usual, and the Ace of Swords is such a perfect representation of the energy kicking off the year. January is all about fresh mental starts, finding you committed to your core to the new patterns you are so ready to establish and allow to take the lead in your life. This month will provide an incredible increase in clarity, helping you to slice through any remaining bullsh*t for smooth navigating of this welcome New Age wilderness.
February 2021: XIV – Temperance reversed
February’s energy reveals where more needs to be released. There will be a hit to your sense of spiritual balance, one inviting you to advance to a whole new level of transformation — the catch will be needing to leave your old comfort-zone cocoon for real, for good this time. This is your year — you have been prepping for *years* to free yourself from this challenge, and this month provides the opportunity to receive your Wings as a reward for applying everything you know to be true for you to blast out everything that no longer defines that Truth.
March 2021: Ace of Cups
And here come the rewards! March represents a sense of total renewal, with your relationships back on track and your sense of self feeling full and happy as well. This is a month of peace and blessings, watering your soul and helping you fully feel the spiritual depths you have developed to keep you safe and sound always. This is the result of learning to Trust your Gut and be guided by your intuition — you are harbouring no illusions about what makes you feel good and like all is right in your world. You’ve flushed out what once blocked that and are blossoming so beautifully as the sun continues to rise on this new horizon that’s been so long awaited.
April 2021: 0 – The Fool reversed
Having found an important degree of emotional stability, April finds you prepared to retrace your steps in a significant way. A part of the previous cycle rears its head to highlight yet another piece of the closure puzzle that’s ready to lock into place. This may send you spinning a bit, but is a challenge worth facing and overcoming — your forward trajectory will be that much more direct for finally figuring out what was wedging that old door open. A whole new portal is being built and you don’t need what you’ve already put behind you at all anymore.
May 2021: 7 of Swords reversed
You did it!! May finds you *fully* released from an old pattern of denial, where you continued to lie to yourself and carry misaligned intentions. Come May you’ve seen what you needed to see and you Choose Healing. Turbulence is no longer your jam — you’ve experienced what Smooth Sailing feels like and are ready to persevere with what keeps that energy afloat for you consistently. You’re continuing to let go of what’s Not Yours and making choices that actually serve you and your loved ones.
June 2021: Page of Cups reversed + 7 of Cups reversed
In June you are recalibrating to even greater heights of loving emotional balance. You’ve done some important “growing up” that is helping you maintain your inner waters’ stillness even as the tides rise around you, battering you with waves that test your spiritual mettle. June finds you quite unshakeable because you are so aligned with what your heart truly wants at this point — you feel totally on top of your options and free from the overwhelm that once found you turning away from your larger dreams for yourself. In June your Inner Child is standing strong as your guide towards more of what fulfills you and helps your life feel like it’s actually yours to live.
July 2021: Queen of Cups reversed
July finds a major spark ignited, with an invitation to deepen the way you’re exploring a significant project or relationship. You’re falling head over heels in love with something, once again recalibrating a new approach to how you want to nurture this beautiful seed of inspiration. Further layers will need to be shed to make space for this opportunity, but you’re here for it as this is something you’ve been focused on manifesting for ages.
August 2021: 3 of Wands
Indeed, July’s dream developed so quickly, and August finds you sending out an important feeler prepping you for long-term success. You’re able to harbour new depths of patience as you wait for the return on your energetic investment as a result of your deep trust in this amazing possibility that your passion has produced. In August the end result is out of your hands and you are ready to relax into the energy of Wait and See — let hope be your pillow as you rest up for your dream’s even greater unfolding.
September 2021: 10 of Cups
Woohoo!! September is a time of happiness and joyful completion. You feel supported in your relationships and can find pure happiness in the simple things that compose your life — the people who matter to you, your home, the practices that keep you centered and grateful for the strange wonderfulness of real life. The hope you’ve been holding is answered and an immense weight is lifted as you’re able to see an important manifestation come full circle.
October 2021: 7 of Pentacles reversed
October finds you “changing routine” in some way, creating space to receive the blessing that’s been lining up over the previous months. An important windfall arrives that allows the “wait” to be over — you are launched into a time of deepened community connection, uniting you with the people who share your vision and will be able to help you further ground it into concrete reality. Memories of feeling poorly or like a failure melt away with the support you’re receiving, and you can actually see where balance is growing in your life and can continue to be nurtured for the future.
November 2021: 8 of Pentacles reversed
You hit a whole new groove in November, establishing new routines that help you fully embody what it means to “work smarter, not harder!” A key revelation has been downloaded, showing you where something can be done differently to truly maximize your creative output and persevere with this amazing thing you’ve established. There is such an emphasis on all the work you’ve put in *finally* starting to work *for* you this year — the New Age wants to reward entrepreneurial energy and show that there’s room for *everyone* to succeed.
December 2021: King of Wands
Yes! The end of 2021 finds you having mastered your energy in a whole new way. You are in touch with what makes you magical and are taking your passion to the next level — you are ready to teach what you know, whether literally or simply through leading by example. One way or another a heavy door has been shut for good, sealing away what once extinguished you and made you feel Less Than. The door that’s opened smiles on what’s been your goal destination, your guiding light, through all the trials and tribulations that forced you to develop the strength that is now ready to guide you even further down the path towards where you know you want to be.
FIRE/Passion/Energy/Spirituality/Inspiration: III – The Empress
2021 *really* wants you nurturing and loving on your personal passion as a spiritual pursuit. When you are engaging with what you love, you are engaging with the Universe and what it wants for you! The interests you’ve been gifted with this lifetime are no accident, and are the roadmap towards loving yourself alongside sending out a beacon that draws people who share that love and will love your contribution to it so much! Collectively Love is ready to take the lead — the increased societal passion for kindness, compassion, and making sure everyone is taken care of shines this year.
EARTH/Work/Finances/Health/Home: VII – The Chariot
The theme of success in entrepreneurship is heartily reiterated! This year wants you to ground yourself in your True Will, to persevere with the path you’ve chosen, and to trust your intuition to guide you towards where you’re now ready to be. 2020 showed how very true it is that Home is Where the Heart Is — you’ve filled your love-tank and are ready for the road ahead, trusting that your loved ones are protected and that your own softness and willingness to keep the ball rolling on your soul’s purpose is all you need.
AIR/Thought/Patterns/Action/Mental Health: 3 of Swords reversed
2020 taught you so much through the pains and heartbreaks you were forced to endure on top of what you were already carrying. Trust that that has birthed in you a whole new level of *decisiveness* where it comes to choosing for balance and wholeness, as opposed to choosing for continued strife and discomfort. 2020 ripped off a long-avoided, very dingy and dirty old band-aid, and in 2021 the real healing process begins.
WATER/Love/Emotions/Relationships/Intuition: 3 of Cups + 6 of Swords + XI – Justice
So much emphasis on emotional healing in 2021! The theme of Friends is powerfully repeated — 2020 taught you who your people are and 2021 allows that energy to take the lead, finding everyone feeling that much more loved, that much more creative, and that much more connected to the Cinderella-style transformation that this year holds for putting in the spiritual work to free yourself and finally feel on-track towards healing. All of your heart’s intentions must remain focused on balance — this year holds such beautiful potential for shifts in the realm of Social Justice as more and more hearts are opened to what needs to happen, and to the fact that we as a collective have much more power than it feels — Doing the Right Thing, doing the best you can when you can, and allowing kindness to take the lead on all fronts are the magical drivers of the Tides of Change.
Higher Self cards/message of Hope moving forward: 23. Last Quarter Moon | Gratitude + Asparagus Dragon | Consistent + 22. Buttercup | Sweet Surrender + 2 of Pentacles
If you do only one thing this year, let it be establishing a consistent Gratitude practice. Take moments through the day to say “thank you” for all the little things that make up the whole — thank you for the bed you wake up in, thank you for the faces that greet you over the course of your day, the foods that sustain you, the activities both mundane and magical that keep your world turning. Surrender to the beautiful life you’re choosing to build, and revel in the ways you’ve learned to keep juggling even when you were unsure if it was all for nothing. The fact that You Are Here and that You’re Still Standing can be all the evidence you need that you *do* have a purpose, and your unique and perfect thread is such an important part of the world’s tapestry as a whole.
PERSEVERANCE is key this year. Keep going with what you’ve started, alongside a willingness to be patient with the process. Slow and steady will lead to unexpected and quite miraculous acceleration! Feel safe in “coming out of your shell” and allowing your gifts to take the lead — while this could refer to actual creative talent, it can be as simple as deciding you’re going to beam your beautiful smile at everyone you meet in your motions this year.
Much personal development is possible this year, as you consciously integrate last year’s disappointments and give yourself permission to let your purest dreams stabilize you and launch the ships that bring you that much closer to a while new way of living heart-centeredly.
Because you were forced to learn to live and function in total overwhelm, your true priorities have trickled down to the forefront of your attention, allowing you to reorient yourself to why this is the particular mountain you’ve chosen to climb. The battles you were forced to fight have allowed you to fully connect with your own authenticity, healing deeper wounds than you even realized you were carrying. You are exactly where you need to be in the process of rebalancing your energy, and what you’ve already established is the perfect bed in which to fertilize your larger vision. You’ve seen that you *can* do it on your own, and now the tides are turning in such a way that the crew members you need can find you. Keep at it, trusting that your dedication will allow your circle to expand infinitely — hold so much hope for the door the work you’ve already put in is opening for you in 2021.
