Today’s meditation was just over ten minutes long and wasn’t really focused on anything in particular even though it was a guided meditation. The guide took me through a breathing exercise and then spoke near the end about the new year and how important it is to step forward into the future with a mentality of hope and anticipation rather than pessimism.
Today’s draw is The Emperor of the Major Arcana. I really love the imagery for this Emperor card, which speaks to me of not just dominance and control, but an earthy power behind that strength as well.
The Emperor’s appearance on this last day of the year is an encouragement. I have been feeling very adrift and struggling with an awkward sense of directionless discomfort over the past week since the holiday rush ended. The Emperor is a reminder that it won’t always be that way and I’ll find that familiar sense of grounded strength and surety once again soon enough.

Question: How can I make the most of this coming year?
Reading Summary: Set aside my inner conflict (Five of Swords) and instead embrace the new beginnings that the new year represents (The World) and jump in with both feet (Eight of Wands). Give and Take (Six of Pentacles)
Take Away: Sometimes how you take your steps forward into the future is an inspiration to others, and sometimes the way others do so can be an inspiration to us. The cards in today’s draw is telling me to look outside myself and seek out the guidance of others to help me in embracing the new year and all that it entails with open arms.
