When Death is your year card, be prepared for some massive transformation.
I’ve written about Death in the Tarot many times before, and I have always tried to balance the love n light positive with the inherent uncomfortable aspect of this card.
Now I’m in a position, where I am actually living through a year, in which Death is my annual growth symbol.
The year isn’t over yet, so anything can still happen, and I am prepared for whatever crazy and mind-boggling stuff is hurling my way.
But so far, 2022 has already been quite a rollercoaster ride of flux and change.
The pandemic has a lot to answer for. It was the harbinger of my year of Death transformation.
And with the war in Ukraine, I realised that the world as we knew it pre-pandemic, has changed forever.
With the old and established order slowly but surely desintigrating, millions of people are affected by a new sense of insecurity.
There is a lot of evaluation going on in terms of living your best life and making the most of life and the time you have left.
So while the old order is dying, something new is emerging.
On a personal level, I came to a point in February, when I realised that I had been running my tarot biz for more than a decade.
I had noticed for a while that I needed to take a break from it, simply to recharge my batteries, so I could gather new ideas and inspiration.
I decided to put my Patreon on hold, so I no longer needed to post new content every month.
While I never had a break from creating lots of content, the last three months of my Patreon journey started to put pressure on my creative flow.
So I put Patreon on hold.
One of the reasons why I haven’t resumed is that I had the urge to return to the commercial world after twenty years of absence.
I am currently working from home for a large retailer serving customers in Europe. God bless the internet, online shopping and the digital nomad revolution.
My current role however is a contract limited until the end of January 2023, but in the meantime, I am already working on transforming my online presence on this website and elsewhere.
You see, while Tarot has been a massive passion of mine for so many years, it has also nudged me into exploring new possibilities.
In recent months, I have virtually abandoned all social media and only post occasionally on Instagram.
I let go of all the toxic social media and the damage it has caused and will cause in time to come.
I’m at a stage in my life, where I no longer need to earn a living from Tarot. I want to continue creating content at my leasure for fun.
If you need help with any of these, please don’t hesitate to leave a question in the comment box on the product page or send me a message.
But wait, there is more… 🙂
A couple of weeks ago, there was a serious health scare in the family.
When a loved one is taken to hospital with a potential life-threatening illness, it’s hard to keep focused and cool.
Thankfully, the suspected heart attack has turned out to be “just” an inflammation of the heart, which was caused by Covid, and with the current medication has the chance to be healed.
It’s still serious, and it has again made me think about life, what is important to me and what I want to do.
As you can see, I am in transition on a road to somewhere.
The metamorphosis is in progress. It feels uncomfortable, but at the same time there are rays of light and illumination.
When Death is your year card, be prepared for anything.
But watch this space. Endings bring new beginnings.
