Happy New Year!
As per tradition, on the first day of the new year I do a one-card reading for the year ahead. Last year was the Page of Wands, and I'd say 2017 was a crafty year--I took a jewelry-making class, a lace-making class, and finally did some chainmail after wanting to learn how to do that forever. Also finally built a computer.
This year I took a card from my newest deck, the Aquarian Tarot deck. It's a minimalist warm-colored deck that's the 70s take on art nouveau. I think it's a good deck when you want a simple meaning--personally I don't like decks that go overboard with the symbolism. Here is the hermit, all alone, hiding from us in his robes. He's walking away from us, retreating to some dark place with the lantern.
I know I've retreated lately...holing up to play the Witcher series, lol. (I'm about to start Witcher 3--just finished 2, which was AMAZING). I've got a million other games to play--after 10+ years on a Mac, I have some catching up to do.
The other thing is I notice people dropping off the face of the earth. Life, political differences, people moving to other social media, it seems every space I'm in gets quieter and quieter.
Are you withdrawing from the world this year?
