At our January 14th Psychic Fair at the NYC Edgar Cayce Center, I did a live public Tarot Reading about 2017. Doing a live public reading is not something I do lightly—I never know what will come up, particularly in times of great uncertainty and upheaval as we’re going through now. Many visitors to our Center this year have expressed apprehension about the future.
The reading I did was in answer to the question, “What is the most important thing that Spirit/Source God would like for us to know about the coming year?”
I explained that this tarot reading would not show anything that was “fated” or “set in stone.” On the contrary, the tarot would show us the predominant energies and probabilities of the year. We always have the free will to choose how we respond to these energies and probabilities as they manifest in our lives. The vibratory rate of our response (high, low or in between) determines what events, situations and relationships we draw into our lives.
As always, I first set my intent that I would be a clear, pure channel of guidance from the highest, holiest Source through my Higher Self for the highest and best good of all concerned—with Light to all, Love to all, Peace to all. Then, after asking the audience to add their vibrations to the deck, I shuffled the cards and was astounded as I dealt out this 5-card spread:
Why? First, because, of the 5 cards in this spread, all 5 were Major Arcana, the 22 archetypal cards in the deck of 78 cards, meaning that powerful spiritual forces are at work this year for all of us.
On top of that, they were all extraordinarily positive, heralding a year where we have incredible opportunities to expand and raise our consciousness… to create a “heaven on Earth” of harmony and unity in accord with spiritual law. We all have these archetypes within us, and we can choose to use these qualities and energies to transcend the duality of 3D materialism and polarity thinking, “us vs. them, good vs. bad, right vs. wrong.”
