2018 By The Numbers: Personal Year vs. The Collective

My introduction to personal year numbers was a few years ago at a psychic fair. I sat with a skilled intuitive for a reading, and the first thing she did was very matter-of-factually inform me that I'd be heading into a personal year 7. While I was familiar with life path numbers and other facets of numerology, I had no idea what a 7 meant in the context of my year ahead. She went on to explain: The coming year for me would be less about the stuff and more about solidifying my connection with myself and the divine. It was a time for introspection, reflection and receptivity. Man, was she ever right...

Since that introduction to the personal year number, it's become a bit of a ritual to spend some time in December calculating my year ahead on both a personal and collective level. And that's what this post is really all about. Calculating your year ahead number, embracing the collective shift, and providing a brief overview of what it all means.

In-Depth with the 3 of Swords
Someday you’re gonna look back on this moment of your life as such a sweet time of grieving. You’ll see that you were in mourning and your heart was broken, but your life was changing. -Elizabeth Gilbert

Last month's In-Depth had us exploring the Page of Pentacles, and when I posted about the article on Instagram, I received a request to cover the 3 of Swords next. Since I have just about zero agenda as it comes to these pieces, expect for the hope that I can produce them at a rate of one a month, I was open to the suggestion.

So here we are, my third In-Depth and in it we'll be taking a deep dive with that sometimes dreaded and often difficult 3 of Swords. I say sometimes dreaded and often difficult, because rarely do you pull this card to a rave reaction or sigh of relief. No, 3 swords piecing a heart doesn't exactly conjure up those warm and fuzzys. But, that's not to say there is nothing positive to be gleaned from its presence, but we'll talk more on that later.

In-Depth With The Page of Pentacles
"Never stop dreaming, never stop believing, never give up, never stop trying, and never stop learning." -Roy T. Bennett

It's been over a year since I've done an in-depth, but today I felt compelled to pull together another. I'd love to eventually have a full section on this site devoted to card meanings - but this will be a slow process and I'm not setting any tangible deadlines.

For today's selection, I threw it to spirit and asked what card I should focus on. Spirit responded with the Page of Pentacles and so, that is the card we'll be tackling! So, who is the Page of Pentacles and what may his presence indicate in the context of a tarot reading? Pages are typically considered one of three things. 1) An actual physical person in the seeker's life (or the seeker themselves) 2) Attributes that are symbolically relevant to the reading or 3) A messenger (more on that one later).
