Tarot Reading for January 2018

  • King of Pentacles
  • Seven of Cups
  • Strength
  • Justice


  • Choices
  • Alignment with Truth and Divine Guidance
  • Groundwork

We are entering into a new year now, and this time is an occasion when so many of us are thinking about what we’d like to bring into our lives as we step forward. The cards show that we have so many possibilities and choices in front of us. Many of us are asking: “Which ones shall I choose? What is my heart’s desire?”.

If we feel stirred, excitement or a flutter inside when we think of certain choices, it is a signal that they are indeed what our heart yearns for. Some of us have been having inspired ideas come to us. Take this as your guidance; as something you are called to move towards. These indications will help us to make choices that are in alignment with our true selves and Divine guidance, which is what we are asked to do.

What we are called to may require some groundwork, but attend to the details; the practical matters, and do so with persistence and patience, so that you may see eventually them through to fruition.

Creative energy is potent now. Let’s tune into our Divine guidance and bring our plans forward, step by step in the year ahead!

From “The Goddess Oracle” by Amy Sophia Marashinsky


2018 is a new year, bringing hope for many of improvements ahead. But Oya is our goddess guide for January, and she is here to tell us that in order to bring in the new that we desire, we must release the old that is not in alignment for us.

Oya is a goddess of transformation, and a force of change. She says “Change is calling for you! It is time. I will show you through external events, and even influence to have rise up within you, that which needs to be released. Surrender. Embrace change. There is no need to hold on. New blessings await.”

If you’d like to connect with Oya’s energy, use her colors: purple, maroon and black. And if you’d like to ease any grief or mourning you may feel for what you need to release, use myrrh- a powerful, purifying and healing resin.

Thank you for reading, and blessings in the new year ahead!
