Your Prediction Is Right! It Is Time For Another Tarot Check-In

Despite all of the stressors that came my way, January was a very good month for me. I felt better about my career goals, I made great progress in my publishing, got lots of writing done, and just generally felt good about myself. I was actually excited about my birthday, a rare occurrence ever since my depression got bad in my 20s, and another tattoo helped boost my body confidence. But does that match the tarot prediction from last year’s birthday reading?

Now, let’s remind ourselves of what that prediction was.

January: VI of Coins (Reversed): Not a good card to have during my birthday month, because it mentions gifts or favours that are tinged with ambition, envy, or spite. Actions could be motivated by selfishness, jealousy, avarice, or desire. And others may seem stingy or unhappy, no matter how much you do for them.

And how accurate was it?

Not very.

Let’s break this down.

If there was that kind of negativity around me last month, I didn’t really notice it. Although my actions in terms of publishing were motivated by desire – desire to be a successful self-published author – they certainly didn’t have the negative connotation that this card suggests. And the only negative emotions I had surrounding any birthday gifts were sadness and disappointment when 2 new dresses I got turned out to be too small on me.

Even though the prediction was not accurate, it’s nice to spend this time reflecting on the month of January. With a less than stellar prediction like this, it forces me to take a moment to sit and think “were the stressful things that happened to me really that bad?” The answer is no.

Although February has been off to a bit more of a rough start, I’m confident that I have another good month ahead. I can’t wait to see what the next tarot check-in has in store!
