April 2021 – A 9 Month, endings

April is a 9 Universal month (4+2021=9). In Numerology nine represents completion and has a humanitarian aspect to it. This month is about recognizing that change is coming and that it’s in your best interest to release relationships, projects, and commitments that are no longer in your best interest.

The best way for you to deal with a 9 Universal month is to discover your Personal month number because using that energy will be to your greatest advantage. To calculate your Personal month, add your Personal year number to the number of the Universal month.

The Personal year is calculated by adding your birth day and month (ignore the year). For example, September 23 is calculated (9+23+2021=9+5+5=19=1).

The Personal Month is found by adding the Personal year to the number of the month. So, for this birthday April is a 5 Personal month (1+4=5).

My reading for the person with a 5 Personal month is recognize that she will have a many different opportunities in April, and it may become very distracting. The energy around her (9 Universal month) is to clear out people, possessions, and projects that no longer serve her. When she releases what she no longer needs, many different opportunities will come her way. If she does not use that 9 energy to release what she no longer needs, she will be overwhelmed.

You can use this formula to calculate your personal month and find a brief explanation of the numbers here.

Engage with your High Self with Tarot

Most of us have at least one area of our lives that we would like to change or at least adjust. What is yours?

You do not have to have a deck of cards for the following exercise. You can go to TarotofEmpowerment.com, free card draw, or choose your own Tarot or oracle deck.

Now, that you have identified the area of your life you want to bring into better alignment with your highest good, let’s ask the cards the best way to move forward. I am using the online Tarot of Empowerment deck and I’ll give you my interpretation of the reading below these instructions.

Call on your angels and guides to give the perfect reading:

1.      Pick a card that represents the next step to become better aligned with your highest good. (Entrapment, Devil)

2.      Choose a card that points to your best course of action to become better aligned with your highest good. (Unknown)

3.      What card represents the challenge for you to complete your best course of action? (Choice Lovers)

4.      Which card represents the energy for overcoming the challenge in order to be successful? (Introspection, Hermit)

5.      What is the card that represents what else your angels and guides want you to know. (Awakening, Judgement)

Entrapment represents the energy for this person to make the change for her to become better aligned to her highest good. This means that she is stuck, but she will find the way out of the trap when she opens her mind and heart and commits to making a change.

The Unknown card represents the energy for her best course of action. This card means that the Universe is not ready to reveal her best course of action. She must first be willing to release what is holding her back from making the commitment to open her mind and heart.

In this reading, Choice is the card that represents her challenge to reveal her best course of action, the Unknown. Choice means that she can do things as she has before, or she can take a do things in a new way. These first three cards seem to be saying that she has not really made the commitment to make the changes she says she wants to make in order to change.

In order to overcome the challenge of Choice and the Unknown, her card is Introspection (Hermit). This card is telling her to explore what is really in her highest and best good, not the direction someone else tells her or she what thinks the community wants from her. When she goes within, she can trust that the truth will come to her.

Awakening, her final card, tells her that her angels and guides want her to know that after she goes deep into Introspection she will have a true AHA! moment and all will become clear to her.

Self-care for March

March can be a turbulent month, weatherwise. You might find the spring storms reflected in your feelings and relationships. Calm one minute and stormy the next.

This is a good time to exfoliate your skin and attitudes or conflicts that create upheaval in your life. Look at your relationship with those around you and where there is conflict draw a card and ask yourself, “what is in my highest and best good to call into my life to have harmony in my life,” (you can draw a Tarot of Empowerment card here). Reflect on how the card can bring harmony to you.

Now, draw a card asking, “How is the next action for me to take that is in my highest and best good to work with the card above.”

Finally, draw a card that asks, “What is my challenge to being able to take the action for my highest and best good.”

This reading becomes a map that you can use in your daily life to explore changes that will bring you joy.

Judyth Sult Tarot Strength Card

In 2021 March is the 8th month. (March is the 3rd month which is added to 5, the total of 2021.)

In Tarot 8 resonates with Strength.

Grace is your strength

Be gentle as you tame the wild beasts

Use compassion and healing powers for all

Draw on the strength of your naked truth

Be strong

Tarot: How Do I Support My Friend?

Here is a layout to answer the question, “How can I best support my friend during this challenging time?” Here are cards that I got in this sample reading.

Card 1 [What card describes the situation?] Chaos
Card 2 [What is my gift to give this person?] Determination
Card 3 [How do I give this gift?] Star
Card 4 [What do I NOT suggest to this person?] Advisor
Card 5 [What action may I suggest for him?] Temperance

The situation I did the reading for is certainly chaotic so this card is just right.

My gift to my friend, in this situation, is to help him focus and set out new goals based on the current situation.

The way to help my friend focus is by showing him the potential of who he is and what he is capable of achieving at the end of the chaos.

The cards tell me to NOT suggest he see a counselor at this time. He is still in the middle of emotional chaos and although counseling may seem appropriate, it is not right for him at this time.

What I can suggest to him is to wait until he finds his own equilibrium before getting more input from a counselor, which actually fits his circumstances perfectly.

This reading was different than what I thought I would do to help, and it gave me a different perspective and approach to the issue. I followed the suggestion in the reading which turned out to be very helpful for my friend.

President Biden’s Numerology, 11/20/1942

Life Path 2
Soul Urge 5
Personality 8
Secret Desire 3

The most important number in a person’s chart is the Life Path because it represents the life lessons and the theme that will repeat throughout one’s life. President Biden’s Life Path is an 11/2. The 11 energy is about spiritual enlightenment or working from one’s highest good. The 11 reduces to 2 which is about balance, partnership, and diplomacy. This energy is represented by his pledge to try to unite the parties.

The Expression is the way the person appears in the world. Biden’s Expression is 8, which is about getting things done around management, money, and status. The 8 energy may bring the appearance that Biden wants to be the boss and control the way money is spent. The 8 energy may be tempered by his Life Path which is the ability of seeing both sides of an issue and a willingness to compromise.

The Soul Urge, sometimes referred to as the Heart’s Desire, is about connection on the deepest level. Biden’s Soul Urge is a 5, which represents change that comes from freedom. This energy suggests that Biden will be flexible as he gathers new information, and he will always seek to adjust and bring in fresh ideas.

The Secret Desire is what deep down the human Biden wants, and that energy is a 3. The 3 is about finding joy, being positive, and projecting optimism. The 5 Soul Urge and 3 Secret Desire help explain why Biden has a positive can-do attitude in spite of the difficulties he’s had in his life. And it explains why he was so determined to be President no matter how long it took.

The Personal Year for Biden is 9 (birth month+birth day+current year). The 9 year is the last year in a 9-year cycle. The emphasis of the 9 energy is about completing what has been building up for the last 9 years and about clearing the way for the new ideas and projects that will come in 2022. The other aspect of the 9 energy is about doing what is good for humanity. Fighting the pandemic and taking steps for climate change are actions that come to mind for the 9 energy regarding the work for the good of humanity.

Biden’s Personal Month Energy for 2021

January was a 1 Personal Month for Biden (personal year+current month). This means that while Biden was completing his 9 year, his energy for January was to bring new ideas, show leadership, and act somewhat independently.

February is a 2 Personal Month for him. We would expect to see strengthening partnerships, especially because of the heavy influence of 2 in his chart. We would also expect a strong effort for him to listen to the other side and a willingness to cooperate more than he was willing to do in January.

March is a 3 Personal Month for Biden which indicates an expansiveness of creative ideas and a time of increased social activity, whatever that looks like during a pandemic.

April is a 4 Personal Month. The 4 energy is about legal, property, and financial issues, which may indicate passing legislation setting the foundation for the remainder of the year or his term. April will end the first 100 days of Biden’s term.

May is a 5 Personal Month, which is about unexpected change and potential chaos. This month is after the first 100 days, and now there is room for others to introduce their ideas for how to move the country forward.

June is a 6 Personal Month, which has the energy of family and responsibility. Biden may be called on to pay special attention to personal family matters.

July is a 7 Personal Month, indicating a time when Biden’s attention may turn inward to review his actions and plans. There is also a spiritual component to this energy that may indicate Biden will turn to his church for support.

August is an 8 Personal Month that revolves around the energy of management, money, and resources. It’s a powerful leadership time. We might expect that it will take about this long to get many of the agencies filled with leadership positions and filling the ranks with new hires.

September is a 9 Personal Month which is the time for completion of actions that took place from January to August. It will be a time of letting go of some of Biden’s ideas that are not going to come to fruition in order to make way for new plans and ideas in October.

October is a 1 Personal Month, which will bring in new ideas and plans of action from Biden.

November is a 2 Personal Month when we would expect Biden to really engage his 2 Life Path energy to attempt bring balance, compromise, and partnership to the front.

December is a 3 Personal Month for Biden, which is expansive and creative.hat others may be delayed meeting you.

It’s Time for Self-Care

With everything that’s going on in the world, there is little doubt that most, if not all, of us are in desperate need of self-care. We so often put off the nurturing for ourselves as we deal with the stress and anxiety in our families and in the world at large.

Self-care is about acknowledging the stress in your life and then taking action to reduce that stress with the intention of finding balance.

Exercise: Fold a paper into four equal quadrants. Title each quadrant with one of the following words: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual.

Under each of the above titles, list what attention, negative or positive, each of these areas has received in the last week. Look at the balance between these areas. Where do you need to relieve tension? Is there an area you have neglected?

Below are suggestions you might take to bring balance to your life. Remember, in order to take care of others, you must first take care of yourself.

    1. Take a break from social media.

    2. It’s not the time to go to a spa but give yourself a spa day at home by indulging in a bath with special oils or scents. Take the time for a     manicure and pedicure.

    3. Be firm with your boundaries with others. Turn off your phone for a specific time if you need to.

    4. Turn off the news or limit your exposure if you think you would feel more stressed not knowing what’s going on in the world.

    5. Reach out to someone who loves and supports you by phone or zoom and share a drink or a meal together while apart.

    6. Tell yourself every morning and every night that you are a good person.

Why Use a Major Arcana Only Deck?

I’ve been reading Tarot for over 30 years using an assortment of 78 or 79 card Tarot decks. When Gordana Curgus and I created the Tarot of Empowerment Major Arcana deck I assumed I would read with it until we finished the Minor Arcana. However, since using this deck I have found that the readings are more powerful and straight-forward than any other Major/Minor deck I’ve used – and others have reported their readings are also right on every time.

Here’s how to do an empowered reading no matter if you’re an expert or a novice. For most readings, limit the number of cards to about seven.

1. Be clear about the information you want the cards to tell you. A question tells you the framework to which the cards are responding. Form a question that helps you create a plan of action. Knowing what to do is empowering.

2. Assign the purpose to each card in relation to the question. For example, the theme of the reading, the best course of action, the challenge, my true desires, etc.

3. Interpret each card in the context of your question and the purpose you have assigned to the card.

In a Major Arcana reading EVERY card is significant.

Ritual – Release 2020, Call in 2021

Especially after the kind of year we’ve had, it’s important to release the energy of 2020 before moving into the energy of 2021. I suggest investing in a journal to keep track of your intentions, the rituals, and your reflections as we move through the year.

Begin by calling in your angels or guides to connect to your high self. Hold the intention to feel complete with releasing the old from 2020, and making space for what is in your highest good to call in for 2021.

Sit quietly and reflect on 2020. Remember back to the beginning of the year. Allow yourself to meander through your memories of the year—the good and the not so good. After a period of reflection, write the answer to each question below in your journal.

  1. What are you most grateful for from 2020?
  2. What were your biggest challenges in 2020?
  3. What did you learn about yourself in 2020?
  4. What have you completed that you will release before going into 2021?
  5. What do you intend to manifest for yourself in 2021? Specify what you want in terms of physical well-being, emotional balance,mental development, and spiritual growth.

When you’ve completed exercise above, sit quietly and imagine your life as it will be when you achieve what you want to manifest in each area.

Fold a paper so that you have 4 rectangles. On one rectangle write a heading of physical, on the next emotional, on the third mental, and finally, in the fourth, spiritual. Under each heading write what you want to manifest for that category. Then write one thing you can do in the near future to move towards your goal.

Keep this paper and add to it during the month.

Numerology – Your Personal Year and Month

The year 2021 is a 5 universal year. Numbers 1 through 4 are more personal, and numbers 6 through 9 are more esoteric. Five is the middle number between 1 and 9 and can often indicate a change of emphasis from the individual to society.

Mind you, the universal energy means that it is a subtle underlying energy for everyone whether they believe in numerology or not. The way each individual is affected by, and interacts with, the universal number depends on several other factors including birth name, birth date, and age.

Think of the energy influence as concentric circles of personal energy becoming stronger as it moves from the universal year to the personal day.

For now, we’ll just look the energy of your personal year and month for January. Calculate your personal year by figuring the number representing the month you were born: January = 1, February = 2, March = 3, April = 4, May = 5, June = 6, July = 7, August = 8, September = 9, October = 10 (reduces to 1), November = 11 (reduces to 2), December = 12 (reduces to 3).

Add the number representing the month to the number of the day you were born. Birth days with 2 digits are added together and reduced to a single digit, for example, 12, 21, 30 all reduce to 3.

Finally, add 5 (which represents 2021) to the numbers of the month and year. September 23 would have a personal year of 9+5+5=19, which reduces to 10 and then to 1.

For the entire year this birthday will carry the energy of new beginnings, leadership, inventiveness, and independence.

The personal month is determined by adding the personal year number to the number of the month. January is the first month, so 1 personal year will work with the energy of 2 in January (personal year+ month).

Even though there are likely to be a lot of unexpected changes in January (5 universal year), this leader (1 personal year) will be looking for opportunities that will encourage harmony, teamwork, and mediation (2 personal month) in January.
