2020 is a new decade, a new era.
Having lived through what went on in the tail part of 2019 (The Hanged Man) now we get to put the insights gained, into action with The Emperor.
And welcome back! I have the pup at my feet as I type this on a cold winter’s night, so normal is certainly “back” for me! A conversation in Tarotholics Anonymous got me thinking about 2020 & what numerology sits behind it. 2019 was a Hanged Man Year (2+0+1+9 = Hanged Man, 12) & logically, the next year should be a Death Year (2+0+2+0 = 4, 1 + 3 =4) but it’s a dead 4. It’s not a 13 in the true sense, though that’s probably the shadow card for this year.
This is a new dawn, this is a new day & this is a new life for us all. Decades can go through some of the majors, not all. Working it out, 2020 is The Emperor, 2021 is The Hermit & Death as a proper number itself doesn’t come up until right at the end; 2029. Each year we get a shadow card, the harder lesson to learn, the bits we often do not want to address but in truth, we should, at least some of the time.
It’s also been pointed out that 2+2=4 & Card 22 is The Fool. So, in truth, we could have 3 cards for 2020! Where does The Fool Feature? Not sure yet, let’s just work on The Emperor first.
What do you see when you see The Emperor or The Green Man? Do you see the loving father? Do you see a favourite uncle, grandfather, step-dad? Or do you see someone you’d like to forget, step away from? The answer is probably all of these at different times. That’s what 2020 has in store for us: a mix of loving support, control, rules, iron fists, velvet gloves & advice. The Emperor is full of good advice, often because he leads from the back, like an Alpha Wolf.
Not The Alpha
No wonder I kept seeing this metaphor coming up at the end of 2020. Having just searched briefly though, the image with the caption I’ve been seeing on Facebook is wrong. The Alpha Female / Matriarch leads the pack in single file, so as to conserve energy when others walk in her footsteps. So, she’s quite strong, resolute, determined. I’m not sure where the Patriarch / Alpha Wolf is (he might be at the back)
So, leaving the Wolf analogy behind for a moment, let me share with you a spread that I’ll be using to see what The Emperor 2020 has in store for us!

So, if you’ve never done your own cards, this might be tricky. If you’re used to this or you read the cards for yourself, this might be useful. The things to look out for, are repeating suits, number sequences (a 4 one month & a 5 a few months later of the same suit) & the Majors which are going to indicate bigger changes. Enjoy working things out for your Emperor 2020 year!
There’s not much more for me to say about this, other than wishing you a prosperous, healthy & happy 2020!
I live & work in the Black Country, a colourful part of the West Midlands. I’m passionate about helping you from where you are now, to where you want to be. There’s a little “fortune-telling” involved in what I do, though it’s more like coaching/counselling with the cards as a prompt for ideas. I can travel to your home for the added comfort of a reading in your own environment (within a certain distance), or I can connect with you online via Skype, Zoom, Hangouts, FB Messenger or another such platform. I’m available for 1-2-1 & parties. You can find out more by contacting me directly either via my mobile, 07505 463597 or via email.
