Hi, I'm Brigit, founder of Biddy Tarot, and this is the monthly Tarot forecast for January, 2016.

Well, firstly, Happy New Year! This is going to be such a cool month, so let’s get straight into it.

I’m going to talk about:

  • The Blessings that are available to us
  • The Challenges
  • And the recommended course of action to make this your very best month

To begin with, our Blessings are represented in the Two of Wands.

Now, have a look at this card. This man is standing in his castle, holding the world in his hands. That’s symbolic of the amount of potential that is available to you right now. He’s looking out across the ocean, and he’s thinking: What’s possible for me right now? Where can I take my life over these next 12 months?

The Blessings here are that it’s a perfect time to start thinking about: What is it that you want to achieve this year?

Then it is about planning: How will you actually start to make those dreams and goals a reality? Now, he’s not necessarily taking action straight away, because he’s still safe in his castle, but he’s definitely thinking, ‘If I really want to go on that holiday to Hawaii, what do I need to do in order to make that happen?' It's about laying down the foundation. The big Blessing here is: Dream big and start planning.

Okay, so let’s check out what our Challenges are for the month of January.

Now I’ve drawn the Seven of Swords reversed. You’ll notice in this card the man has five swords, and he’s had to leave two behind. What this card tells us is that, sometimes in order to do what we want to do, we can’t do everything.

As we are creating our really big goals, dreams, and plans, we need to know that we can’t do everything that comes to mind, because if we tried to do a hundred things at once, we probably wouldn’t do them very well.

So your Challenge this month is knowing: What is it that you are going to have to leave behind; and to be strategic. You have to know that it is probably going to feel a little bit icky when you think, “I really want to go to Hawaii and Bali, but I can only afford one.” It’s not going to feel great, but that’s what you need to do so that you can fully manifest your dreams the way that you want.

Now, let’s check out the recommended course of action to make this a really awesome month.

I have drawn the Eight of Pentacles.

This card is both about mastery and paying attention to the details. So let’s talk about mastery.

You might have a skill that you can already do, but what you want is to take your skills to the next level. Well, this is the perfect time to do a little bit of extra training, skill development, courses, or programs in order to improve your skill set. It is not about starting something completely new and different. So, if you’ve never played golf before it may not be a sign to suddenly play golf; but, if you’ve been playing golf for five years – it might be a good time to try and get better at it. So that’s a great way to do extra training and courses in January.

The other part of the Eight of Pentacles is paying attention to the details. As you are setting up all of your beautiful plans for the year, you are going to want to make sure that you are also paying attention to the details of those plans. It might be as simple as getting your calendar out and mapping out exactly when you’re going to do certain things, and making sure that you’ve got enough space for those things to happen. It might feel a little bit fernickety, trying to get the exact details of when things will happen; but trust me, this is what’s going to set you up for an awesome year ahead.

So, there you have it. Make sure that you are putting your plans in place and thinking really big about what’s possible, knowing that you might be challenged in terms of not being able to do everything you’d imagined. And use this time for skill development and training, and also paying attention to the details.

So there you have it. I hope you have an awesome month ahead, and I’m wishing you very, very well.

Thank you and good-bye.
