January | Three of Cups

Thursday, 22 February 2018


I have always been low-key fascinated by the art of the tarot. I don't know if it's magic or not and as a woman who studied a mostly-science-based course at uni, I tend to be a bit of a sceptic. But since last summer, my spiritual self has really been coming out of the woodwork and I have learned to love her. This Christmas my best friend and boo Emily bought me a set of tarots and I immediately fell in love with them. The artwork is beautiful and so, so detailed and after reading the book that came with it, I understand now; that tarots do not predict the future, it's so much more complex than that. They guide you through it, they give you the tools in your mind to see an outcome. This is something I know very well in the psychology field, something called hermanuetics - the art of interpretation. The tarots can be anything you want them to be, they don't predict the outcome, they tell you everything that is already there, already under your nose the whole time, you were just too busy to see it. 

On new years eve I decided to conduct a yearly spread. This is essentially choosing thirteen cards and placing them in a circle, each card represents each month and the thirteenth represents the all round theme of the year and so on and so forth. As a bit of fun and I thought it would make for unusual blog content, I am going to sum up my month using the tarots that were predicted and compare them to my current life during that month. I want to see if there was a speck of truth there and how my year will pan out as a whole according to this prediction. Will this reading influence me into making decisions? Will it motivate me into taking new opportunities or not depending on the reading? I would show you the yearly circle beforehand but I feel like tarots are a very personal emotional thing; laying your future out for the world to see like that, so we're going to do it one month at a time. Cool, let's start with January:

Three of Cups_____________________________________________________________________

Friendship, Joy, Bounty

The three of cups is a lovely card. It forsees you in the company of amazing friends, creating memories together that you'll forever hold dear. These are not any ol' friends; they are people with whom you feel a rare connection. With them you feel truly 'yourself'. Enjoy each minute of their company. This card can also indicate an upcoming celebration. Love abounds!

January__________________________________________________________________________

My January has been incredibly social. The card was true, I met my current squad and I've been having an amazing time hanging out with them all. We're mostly all musicians so it's been amazing to get to know people with the same like-mindedness and interests as me. We're all very grounded although some of us are currently being catapulted to success right now! I'm just so happy that my time at home has meant finding this amazing place with these amazing people, playing amazing songs and drinking amazing gin. I couldn't have asked for a better January. A month that I thought was going to be pretty difficult turned itself around completely and I am in such a good place right now. Exciting things are happening with my music and I'm just really hyped for the future and being able to share it with these amazing people means the world to me, ew; but no really I mean it.
