Tarot Forecast for the Week of January 22, 2018

Nine of Cups, Reversed

Normally, the Nine of Cups is a card of happiness, joy and peace. However, this week it has turned up in the reversed position. I read reversals a little differently than some and, to me, this reversal is about an inward expression of energy.

What this means is that this card feels like its message is about turning inward and discovering the things within us that bring us happiness, joy and peace. When we no longer depend on our outer circumstances to make us happy, we become like a brick in a raging river. The water may be rushing one way or the other, but we remain unchanged and don't allow it to drag us along with it.

Your circumstances are constantly changing, but they can't affect you if you have an inner source of joy. The other great thing about this shift is that the more you start to focus on that peace within yourself, the more it will begin to manifest in your life - "As above, so below. As within, so without."

Discover what it is within you that lights you up and you'll be able to see a clear path even in the darkest of times.

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
