Kelly is a psychic medium and channel. She offers Tarot readings, animal communication sessions, energy healings, and other Spiritual services. A priestess to Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy, Kelly is based in Singapore.
The date to watch this week is 12 Jan (or 13 Jan, depending on where you live in the world): in a space of less than two hours, the life-giving Sun forms crucial conjunctions with Saturn, Lord of Time & Karma, and Pluto, Lord of Transformation & Shadow, in the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn.
Thus begins a powerful new cycle of change, growth, and karma. The months ahead will require courage, hard work, and the willingness to take on responsibility. Secrets are likely to be exposed, and those who have been involved in dirty business will find their luck, health, reputation, and finances depleting rapidly.
Under the auspices of these transits, some people will find their lives taken to a higher level of truth, honour, and power.
Some other people will simply fall apart.
When Capricorn energies are high, I’ve noticed that karmic repercussions tend to hit people where it really hurts: power and money. These are, after all, the areas that stern, pragmatic Capricorn rules.
Let’s get to the reading stat!
“I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. Be on your guard…”– The Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 10 Verses 16-17a (New International Version)
These were the words of Jesus as He sent out the first messengers of His Good News to the world. The Good News of Spiritual salvation, in a nutshell, is this:
True Spirituality comes from living a life that is authentic to your highest truth, and your connection with the Universe. You don’t need an institution, a tradition, a guru, or even a doctrine. You are a spark of the Divine, and you have all the answers in you – if you’re willing to search.
Did Jesus the Messiah tell His followers to be naive, fluffy, flaky New Age woo-woo types? Of course not. He told His disciples – and by extension, all of us who profess to be Spiritual – that we need to be pure-hearted but also strategically-minded, and to be mindful of our environment.
This is the crux of the Tarot reading for the week – once you get this wisdom, you’ve got the gist of it. Now let’s get into the details.
LEFT: THE HIGH PRIESTESS. Re-connect with your inner voice. The truth of who you are. Your Higher Self, your soul. When this card appears, you could be facing a situation where a lot is going on, and many voices are speaking. But there’s only one voice you need to hear and obey, and that’s the voice of your soul.
So cut through the BS. Take a step back from the noise and politics. Return to your pure Higher Self, and listen to your heart. You know what you need to do. You have the answers within you. Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.
When the High Priestess appears, make your plans and take action: wisely, intuitively, and secretly. Tell no one what your next steps are – the High Priestess is the holder of secrets. Be on your guard.
MIDDLE: KING OF PENTACLES REVERSED. The reversed King of Pentacles, in most mundane situations, usually is bad news. This card represents someone who over-promises and under-delivers. This is usually a man, but can also be a woman – whichever sex they are, they’re irresponsible control-freak types who demand all the respect, but can’t be trusted. Unfortunately, they’re usually leaders, elders, managers, and/or figures of authority in large organisations.
When this card appears reversed, watch out – a person who matches the above description could play a role in how events turn out. You probably already know who this is.
But there’s another level of interpretation that I want to bring to your attention: if you’re facing a situation where things are getting ugly and you don’t know who can be trusted anymore, then you will have to become the reversed King of Pentacles.
What the hell do you mean, Kelly? I’m glad you asked. The reversed King of Pentacles is, at their core, a person who cannot be trusted because they’re really, really good at keeping up appearances.
If you’re currently surrounded by snakes, this is what you might have to do.
Never compromise your integrity, of course! I’m not asking you to actually become a jerk. But be shrewd and strategic-minded; put your game face on. Show no weakness. Reveal no information that can be used against you. Look busy. Be productive, but tell no one what you’re really up to. Deflect awkward conversation topics. Avoid gossips and backstabbers – the Suit of Pentacles prefers action to communication.
RIGHT: THE DEVIL REVERSED. This is one of the few Tarot cards that I prefer to see upside-down. The reversed Devil is an encouraging sign for many of us. It means that the very thing we fear, the bondage or obstacle that holds us back, is actually smaller and weaker than we think.
The reversed Devil is easily overcome. Understand that much of its intimidating facade is psychological. It’s a reflection of your own inner fears – not an indication of your reality. Therefore do not be afraid, but take action to achieve your goals.
Re-connect with the powerful High Priestess within you, put on the shrewd game face of the reversed King of Pentacles…
Then kick the reversed Devil’s ass.
And you will surely win.
GODDESS GUAN YIN DIVINATION
LOT NUMBER: 42
You are blessed by royalty!
Honour is yours; no harm comes to you.
So are you graced by Divine favour.
Your life is blessed amongst men.
(Trans. Tan Kelly)
This is an Upper Lot, indicating Divine favour and blessing. It depicts the rare privilege of receiving desired outcomes via Divine intervention, and clearly indicates good fortune and achievement.
The traditional explanation advises the recipient of this lot to “remember gratitude to Heaven, by offering incense day and night”. What this means in the modern-day interpretation: whatever blessing you receive – and make no mistake, you will certainly receive – pay it forward. It doesn’t hurt to connect with your faith of choice and say Thank You to the Powers that be, either.
After the intensity of this week’s Tarot reading, you might be wondering why it’s all unicorns and rainbows with the Goddess Guanyin divination lots. I’m happy to explain the very different energies: no worries, this reading simply means that quite a few of you are currently facing complex situations. But there’s a way out:
Work with the advice given by the Tarot, and you will attain the blessings of the Goddess divination lot.
Have a great week ahead!
