2016 Tarot Year Card - Hermit
In tandem with the numerological 9 influence in 2016, the tarot year card for the year is the Hermit, the ninth card in the Major Arcana in Tarot. The image on the Hermit card often depicts a cloaked man standing on top of a mountain holding a lamp. The mountain represents the pinnacle of his achievement and growth. The hermit has attained all that knowledge through his journey and is ready to light the path of everyone else by sharing his knowledge. The Hermit encourages you to tap into your inner consciousness to reevaluate your goals, reassess your path towards it and make adjustments if you need to do so. The card encourages you to find your inner light within you and use it to shine the path of others around you. From your space of experience, skills and knowledge that you have attained, share your gifts with the world and support others with compassion and generosity. If you need to spend some time in solitude, honour that need to have that space so that you can listen to your inner wisdom.
2016 urges you to think before you act. Leverage the lessons from the past year to approach the year ahead. Forgive those who have hurt or disappointed you. Don't take unnecessary risks unless you have evaluated all angles of an opportunity. Let go of anything that no longer serves you positively. Spend more time on your own to heal, recharge and renew. Expect some stress and tension but it is not insurmountable if you manage it all with openness to differences and give it enough deliberation time. Finally, approach everything and everyone win a sense of compassion and generosity of spirit.
