Monthly Tarot Forecast for January 2018

By December 28, 2017

january 2018 monthly tarot forecast

In January 2018, you are being asked to let go of all of the hard work and effort you put into last year. 2017 has come to a close, and now is the perfect time to start fresh, with the inspiration and motivation to create something amazing this year! You’ve got new life in your creativity this month, tapping into pure potentiality. Take hold of that excitement and run with it—not just in January but throughout the coming year! However, beware of having a competitive mindset. If you find yourself in disagreements with others, look to find solutions in which everyone comes out a winner. Compromise is key; find a balance. 

Watch the Tarot card forecast to learn more about what's coming up in January 2018 and how to make the most of the month ahead.

Hi there. I’m Brigit, Founder of Biddy Tarot. This is the Monthly Tarot Forecast for January 2018. Well, happy New Year to start off with! I hope you're having a wonderful start to this year of 2018. 

Now, I do enjoy doing things a little bit differently now and then, so I’m going to change up our Monthly Tarot Forecast. Instead of focusing on the usual Blessings, Challenges and Action, we’re going to focus now on: 

  • What is passing through your life? What are you letting go of? 
  • What is now emerging? What new opportunities are coming into your life? 
  • What action can you take in order to make the most of the energies of this month? 

So, let’s get into it. 


This is the energy of what is passing this month, and here is the Ten of Wands, and this is the beautiful Lumina Tarot deck. If you want to find out more about Lumina, you can go to 

The Ten of Wands is a sign that what you are letting go of this month is all of that hard work and effort that you have put into place perhaps all the way throughout 2017, and you have finally come to that point completion, where you can acknowledge that you have put in place everything that you need to put in place. You’ve done the hard work, and now you are ready to start this new year afresh and ready to go.

And what a fitting card to follow that… We’ve gone from Ten of Wands with what you’re releasing now to the Ace of Wands for what is emerging in your life right now—and what a great way to start this year! 

The Ace of Wands is a sign of new energy, new growth, inspiration, creativity—that amazing feeling that we have of pure potentiality in our lives, and I really invite you to tap into the energy of the Ace of Wands and look at what new opportunities are available to you, not just this month but this coming year, and really lean into the energy and the excitement around those new opportunities. It’s a really wonderful card to start the year with. 


Now, what action can you take to make the most out of the energies of this month? 

Here we have Five of Swords. If you know much about the Five of Swords in the traditional Rider-Waite Tarot deck, then you know that this card is very much about “There are winners, and there are losers.” And in fact, even though you might be a winner, the issue is: Have you really won, because ultimately, everyone has lost? 

If you are in more of that competitive state of mind, where you're only looking to win an argument or to come out on top, then you're creating this energy that just isn’t right, and it ends up being a lose-lose situation. 

With this card, what you are being called to do this month is to confront conflict, to embrace conflict, to deal with it head on, and deal with it in a way that creates a win-win situation. You may need to compromise to some extent. You may need to lean into what the other person wants. You may need to be ready to apologise and say sorry if you’ve done the wrong thing. 

Look, this may not be the most pleasant card of the Tarot deck, but this is a bit of a truth talk for you, particularly if you're finding yourself in disagreements with others. It’s really time to take accountability for your role in that disagreement and to find something that is more of a win-win situation. 


So, there you have it. What you are releasing is all of that effort that you have put into 2017. You can now let all of that go. It’s all been completed, and it’s this perfect opportunity to start afresh, especially with the Ace of Wands with that beautiful energy of inspiration, creativity and motivation to create something amazing. Now, the advice, again, is the Five of Swords, so if you do find yourself in a conflict or a disagreement with somebody else, then look to create a win-win situation. It doesn’t have to be all about winners and losers. You’re not fighting to the death. Find something that’s a balance where both parties can feel that they have benefited from that situation in some way. 

There you have it. That is the Monthly Tarot Forecast for January 2018. I hope you have a really great month ahead, and I look forward to connecting with you again very, very soon. Bye for now!
