By the time you read this, I’ll be 28 years old in the land of my birth.
This time last year, I was home in the Bahamas- both excited at the prospect of starting a new job, and horribly depressed at the prospect of spending my birthday away from my husband and friends in Vancouver.
Now, I’m home where I belong, the culmination of a goal realized… and wouldn’t you know it, I’ll be once again doing something new, and away from my loved one. But this time, there’s a good reason for that- I signed up for a Small Business training seminar that starts super-early in the morning! And my husband works the late shift, so by the time he comes home, my day will be over and done with. What a pity haha.
But beyond my immediate plans for my Solar Return [such as a birthday dinner on Saturday], this year is looking to be significant for a few reasons… it looks as if it will truly be a ‘do or die’ year for me. If I am to cultivate the life I want for myself, it has to be done NOW. Not just because of the ‘no time like the present’ cliché, but because I am very quickly running out of options and down to my last financial threads.
I utterly refuse to be tethered to the whims of another soulless employer, I want to be in control of my work from start to finish.
But I also want this- DarkLake Tarot, my Craft, my Purpose- to work, and to be viable. I know it can.
So if there is any opportunity to start, let it be now.
Venus has been sending me signs, making Her presence known to me in various forms… She wants to help me obtain my desires but I have to put in the work- both in my business and in my spiritual growth. So I must be willing to learn how to set up DarkLake Tarot legitimately and smartly… and I must be more diligent in applying what I was learning throughout last year, working through my Shadow and reconnecting myself more earnestly with my Craft. This must also be the year that I be more open and honest with my Self, and the fact that this IS my life now.
Turning 28 makes this particular Solar Return a '1' Year in numerology [2+8 = 10, and 1+0 = 1], which resonates more in a '1' year like 2017. A beginning of a new cycle, a new personal era. I am the Fool striding forth, hoping that Fortune’s Wheel spins in my favor. My future is literally before me.
And I still have my note’s from my natal chart reading from Aeolian Heart… and how best I can use those gifts of mine to fulfill my life’s mission.
So before I head to bed early I’ll use my Birthday Gifts spread to see what the year holds.
And in the morning, I get to work.
