Ready to say goodbye to 2017? I know I am! Wow, what a challenging year! With the January full moon scheduled for New Year’s day, 2018 is already indicating that it is time to wipe the slate clean, leave the past in the past and look ahead to the future.
In a recent 2018 forecast I did for a friend it was made clear to me that one of 2018’s main themes is “family”. For everyone this theme will manifest differently depending on what issues are present; however, it is clear that family will be the area of challenge for most.
Along with the theme of family was the theme of “togetherness”. It presented itself as the “We are the world” card (Osho Zen Tarot). This hints that not only will we as individuals need to “stick together’ but also that events in the world will require togetherness rather than separateness. How events play out will depend entirely on whether we are open and willing to put aside our differences and cooperate for the greater good of Earth.
Based upon just these two themes – family and togetherness – 2018 will be gifting us with lessons and opportunities that will have the potential to blast through lies and illusions related to family and groups (ie. racism, relationships, cultural beliefs, religion, persecution, etc) not only here at home but on a global scale. Will we rise up to the challenge? Can we get past our small selves (Ego) and grow out of selfishness and separateness into Unity and Togetherness? I hope so!
For clarity, I decided to select three of my Light Code Oracle cards.
These three cards further expound upon the themes of family and togetherness. The Service card indicates that 2018 will require that we help one another. We will be asked to be more selfless, more generous and compassionate, and to do so without expectation of it being returned.
The Creator card reminds us that we create our reality. For most of us, our full potential lies hidden throughout our lives. We will be asked to push aside our fear of not being enough, to look deep within and accept that we are potently powerful Beings capable of so much more than we consciously realize. This might mean life forces us to take a long, deep look at ourselves. Sometimes this can be scary, but with courage we discover amazing things. This card also reminds us that as Creators, we need to remain mindful of the thoughts that precede our actions. Are we acting out of kindness and love? Or are we responding from a place of fear and hate?
Finally, the Health card asks us to remember to take care of ourselves as well as those we love. It indicates that we will find healing and renewal in 2018 and invites us to be receptive to the opportunities as they present themselves. Will we refuse a compliment or hug when we need it? Will we accept help when it is offered despite our own pride pushing us to reject it? It reminds us that healing is not always a retreat or vacation away from our troubles. It can come about via our interactions with others, through life activities, even upsets and change.
I, personally, have already identified some of the coming lessons 2018 has to offer me. For me the challenges/lessons are in my own home and extended family. However, though the lessons appear to be all about ourselves and our families, don’t be fooled. The challenges each of us overcomes is another point for our Team – humanity and Earth.
Wishing you all a happy and prosperous New Year and 2018!
