Hello 2017, I’ve Been Expecting You.

2017 is finally here, so let’s hello to the New Calendar Year.

As this year begins, let’s set our intentions for what we want to achieve.

It’s only been a week or two, but what kind of start has it been for you? We said “Hello” to 2017 as it handed us a blank 365-blank book for us to write our life stories into. I hope no-one else is holding your pen, by the way!

I’ve shared this spread from Joanna Powell Colbert’s Gaian Tarot site, with permission.

The Cards: 

Hello 2017

1. What do I leave behind in the Old Year? ~ 3 of Arrows

2. What do I open up to in the New Year? ~ 6 of Arrows

3. Key Opportunity of the New Year ~ Major 18, The Moon on Water

4. Key Challenge of the New Year ~ Major 21, The World Tree

5. Hidden concern (pull from bottom of the deck) ~ Knight of Bows

6. Deep Wisdom / Advice from God/dess (pull from middle of the deck) ~ Major 0, The Wanderer

7. Key Theme of the New Year ~ Major 10, The Wheel

If you keep records of your readings, the last card (#7) could become the first card (#1) in next year’s spread. Something for you & I to do next year!?

New year

The Reading:

What do I leave behind? The 3 of Arrows suggests that I leave behind the heartache & lies from the previous year. Having my heart & my head out of balance and kilter isn’t good for anyone.

What do I open up to in the New Year? The 6 of Arrows suggests that I open up to just taking one day at a time, taking one step at a time. When I look back at last year, I realise it whizzed by.

What is my Key Opportunity of the New Year? Major 18, The Moon on Water is rather reflective, the path before me isn’t clear. It’s already sent me some wonderful things for this year, nothing though is set out in stone, it’s not a set path. So, follow my own way.

What is my Key Challenge of the New Year?  Major 21, The World Tree suggests that I take the chances as they appear when they appear. They may not come around to me again, so I’m to go with the flow, the ebb & tide.

What is my hidden concern? The knight of bows is versatile, entrepreneurial. My concern is that I need to be going to need to keep my eyes open so often business wise that I’ll miss the other things going on before me.

What’s the deep Wisdom / Advice from Goddess? Major 0, The Wanderer says to trust me and leave the past behind, just go for it. Be brave, trust myself & go with the path that I see before me, even if I can’t rationalise it with logic. Trust the connection I have with my higher self & soar!

What’s the Key Theme of the New Year? The Wheel, Change. Changes can be small. They can be big. They can be acting in confidence when you don’t feel it, they can be trusting you when everyone else thinks you’re bonkers. Trust me, I get that one regularly! However, knowing that there’s magic & connection all around, that there are changes afoot, helps you to embrace what’s going on around you.


There are changes afoot this year, so now I just need to work my way through it. The signs one might expect aren’t there: there’s so many ways & options to me this coming year, that it can go wherever and however I want it to. The possibilities are entirely down to how I play the cards as they’re dealt to me. 


I hope you’ve enjoyed this first proper post of the new year, welcome to the year of change!  To book your reading, just follow this link

  1. Hi Louise,
    Just did this spread for the New Year and I ended up with 5 Court Cards! I’ll leave the cards out so I can see what these people cards are telling me.
    Happiest New Year to you!

    1. Hello Lisa. Wow, 5 courts?! Yikes! Some will be situations, some will be people in characteristics that you’ll need this year. It’ll be rather interesting to revisit it come next year & do it all over again!
