four of pentaclesThe Four of Pentacles indicates stability and security for this coming month. Coupled with your integrity and idealism, you're able to build a solid foundation upon which to stand and from which to run your life on the material plane. Being careful and orderly, management of material resources will be wonderfully efficient--you'll be getting big bangs for your bucks.

The caveat with this card is that it teeters on the brink of Scrooge-y-ness. One is tempted to pinch pennies even harder to get an even better result in managing your resources. But the problem with that is you then create a guided cage around yourself and retain too much karmic energy. There must be equal give and take to remain balanced.

So, instead on focussing on the use at all of resources, focus on the proper use. Be generous to others with less because charity is indeed a "proper" use of your resources. And as you give to those with less, you'll find a deeper appreciation of and respect for the bounty within...your intangible abundances.

Have a good month and keep warm!

Annette Noyes Head Shot 2The reversed Five of Cups offers a very hopeful outlook for the coming year as you experience recovery from losses. Resistance and disappointments are transformed into something better. Some hard decisions have been (or will be made) and this will allow for difficulty to be overcome. Emotional stability, coping skills, determination, and fortitude lift you out of the muddy mire of victimhood. No more wallowing for you!

five of cups reversedThis card also represents changes in your lifestyle that are more aligned with your True Self. By leaving behind the "woe is me" mentality, you'll be able to get on with the business of being joyful--as we're all meant to be. And in your more joyful state, you'll be more naturally charitable, forgiving, and kind to others and yourself. This will allow for rifts to be healed and hatchets to be buried.

Best wishes for the coming New Year,

Annette Noyes Head Shot 2The Empress signifies creation/creativity. She's about fertility of the mind and imagination. With the holiday hubbub over, now is the time for you to pay attention to the bees buzzing in your bonnet. Is this the year you finally open your own business? write your novel? repaint the bathroom? Whatever "creativity" means to you, it's time to examine those ideas. This card heralds productive and prolific energy on the material plane. Therefore, the energy and time is ripe for bringing your dreams out of your head and into your life.

03 empressThe Empress also represents self-care. Just as The Empress cares for her people, she must care for herself. If you think about it, giving, giving, and giving, without thought to receiving, puts you in a state of energetic imbalance. You have to receive just as much as you give! Therefore, practice receiving by accepting your own giving. Give yourself the gift of a nice hot bath, a movie that you want to see, a new purse, etc. If someone wants to take you to lunch, say yes, please, and thank you!!!

During this next month, concentrate on you. No, I don't mean you should abdicate all responsibility. Just make more time for your goals, dreams, and creature comforts. You made the holidays utterly fabulous for everyone else. Now it's "me time."

Best wishes!

The Three of Pentacles represents work/professional situations. When reversed, the energy therein goes off the rails. Therefore, expect conflict among those who should be working together, which then causes delays. Management level workers are not immune to the situation and will probably offer poor guidance and criticism rather than solving a problem at its root.
 
Three of Pentacles - reversedI see this as the norm for the holiday season. Everyone is stressed about getting everything done to create a "perfect" celebration of a particular holiday. This private stress spills into the professional world and makes everyone cranky and disagreeable. Also, some may try to selfishly take extra days off to ease their own burden, but it simply shifts the burden onto other co-workers.
 
What to do? Self-care, self-care, and more self-care. No, you don't get to be the one taking extra days off. You'll be the one who interacts with all those Scrooges with humility  and courtesy. How is that fair, you ask? Because reacting with ease and confidence to a heated situation keeps you from becoming tense and soothes everyone else's temper as well. If you must, stay out of the break room and simply do your work to your very best ability. Let the chaos rage around you but don't participate. You be the island of calm for others and yourself.
 
Happy Holidays!

This card is often called the "wish" card and is considered to be exceptionally fortuitous. Creativity abounds and the energies are stable for manifesting dreams. Just be careful of complacency or resting on your laurels as things go your way. Making your wishes come true still takes work.

 

Nine of CupsThe above mentioned fortune is lovely, but the more important aspect of this card is the gratifying emotional happiness indicated here. Once you take full responsibility for and control of your happiness, the sky is the limit! You can choose to be happy living in your car or in a mansion. You can choose to be happy dining on mac-n-cheese or caviar. When you become the master of your joy, then it becomes very easy to share that joy in random acts of kindness. And guess what? With every act of kindness, you feel more joy!

Big love to you all!
