What to expect from the 2022

I played with tarot today, asking about 2022. Take it easy please.


Overall energy – Harvest

It’s time to harvest what has been planted before. Patience, precision and humility will be required. Rather than fighting for new fields, it would be better to gain more from what we already have, using creativity and innovations. There is a question and a challenge at the same time – which skills or abilities do I underestimate or underuse?

Surprisingly, a big potential could be discovered. There is a treasure right under your feet.


January – Looking for a better tomorrow

There is a lot of dreams and desires. Instead of standing on solid ground, we fly in the heaven, drifting with ideas, plans and expectations. Even this could be important.

Leaving bad memories and spleens behind, getting belief in good and love again, this could be an excellent start to the year 2022.


February – Awakening to reality

You cannot create happiness just by dreaming. You have to go and make mistakes. Only by trying things is possible to separate the real from the unreal. Having big eyes and setting goals high is natural and right, as long as we are capable correct the goals according to given circumstances.

Do not consider corrections as failures.


March – Sun shines again

It seems that the world is a nice place to live again. Dark places are brightened, except of duties there comes time for pleasure and joy. You have the choice – stay in the darkness or climb out into the light.

Opportunities do not come directly to us, yet they are all around. It’s up to you whether you take or let it be.


April – Riding a wave

Who took the opportunity, rides the wave and rides really fast. Maybe faster than keeping it under control. Full of enthusiasm we move forward. At this point, we need to feel the fire inside and to be alive. We could make mistakes because of the speed, but it’s better to move and make mistakes than to stand, catching dust in the garage.

Anyone who doesn’t leave his comfort zone voluntarily will be drawn there by other riders.


May – Doubts

After the wild water comes a calmer surface, time to think and exhale the fast driving experience. Guilty feelings could appear from the pond of emotions, do not be overwhelmed by them. Do not compare your life path with the others, do not be trapped by feeling of injustice or helplessness. These are just feelings and not the only ones available.

The challenge of May is to seek light in dark, hope in despair.


June – Reward

What May could owe, June richly rewards. Life is proven to be a sinusoid and this is the only way how to fully enjoy. Let’s learn to take what is available at the moment.

June offers a lot of experience, diversity is important. Try as much unknown as possible. You also don’t eat only potatoes, even if there is a cauldron of them available every day.


July – First harvest, next sowing plan

Looking back, we can recognize the basic from the empty activities, what exhausts us more than it bears fruits. There will be time and space for such contemplation in July. We may even tend to discuss it with others. Remember that the opponent is not the enemy, he brings the opportunity to clarify details and stay open.

July offers the key to the unanswered questions, do not forget to ask them.


August – Pampering

There is a huge need to pamper and be pampered. We can pamper family, friends or strangers on the street, always with full respect to them. The challenge is to open specific part of heart and forget about people’s credibility or how we consider it.

Do not claim any response and be surprise in the future.


September – Balance of power

There is a rebalancing of the tools of power. We have learned that goodness and empathy will move us to the goal as quickly as ambition and purposeful action. September pushes to use both hemispheres, crippling any one-sidedness.

Don’t hit your head on the wall, try to balance and compensate. Otherwise, frustration and disappointment will arise.


October – Family

Time to realize the importance of the family. What the family brings to us, what we owe to it, or maybe how much they take our breath away, despite the frame of time. October brings the opportunity to discover and release what sucks our strength and blocks some abilities.

Perhaps we do the same to anybody else. Let’s take control of what is ours and leave control what is not.


November – Rushing forward

Doing everything in double speed. The quality could cry, but there is a lesson to move and not to dig in bullshit. We are challenged to leave situations in which we’ve been trapped for a long time.

At this speed, pay attention to judgements, they need to be verified in time.


December – Blessing

There is a treasure behind the cobwebs, there is enough for everybody. It’s up to you whether you focus on cobwebs and complain about their dirt or treasure and enjoy its benefits. Both is true.

December brings a lot of gifts – take what you wish and do not feel guilty. Be grateful, not bound. Be yourself, don’t judge anyone.


Happy New Year to all of you! And thanks for understanding my not enough flexible English 🙂

I’ve been used Crowley (Thoth) tarot cards for my reading.

Drawing Tarot cards

Opening an account on the deviant art platform makes me to take even old drawings from hidden cabinets and show them without shame. I never claimed to be a professional artist. I draw by heart and cannot do it better.

Long ago, I started to draw my own tarot cards with related Aura-Soma bottles on them. At that time I was sitting several hours a day surrounded by this colorful miracle and absorbed the energy and story inside. I was fascinated, so it’s no wonder I put them into the system.

I made about half of the major arcana when I realized how cowardly I was trying to avoid drawing people because it was a nightmare for me. At the same time I clearly saw that cards without people didn’t have enough energy, they were somehow flat. But the others looked strange because the people didn’t fit anatomically. I began to feel more frustration then pleasure, so I interrupted the whole project.

I took the cards from the bottom of scrap last week with the same result as many years ago. The cards without people are nice but flat, the cards with people are strange but strong enough. The only difference happened in the mind. It seems that I began to like my strange people and even the strange perspective. And I proudly show you some of them today.

I’ve been always saying that my drawing replaces therapy. It took several years, but hopefully I did accept my imperfection finally.

With love and respect to imperfections,

Ivana

In the case you’d like to look at more of my tarot drawings, here is link to the gallery.

Reading cards

I do tarot readings and I do it often, so I have a range of graphic versions of it. Some of them are more compatible with my intuition and some less. It might change with people and period of time, but it works pretty well. For more than 10 years, every Sunday I do a public reading card for the following week and I pick various pictures for the same card for better understanding.

However, it seems that thousands of existing versions are not enough for me. A few years ago I was tempted to draw my personal cards. I didn’t have the ambition to create a real tarot set with a fixed structure, I wanted to draw pictures according to my inner calling and watch what was going to happen.

And it happened. I was surprised how quickly I was sure what to draw. Although my pictures are naïve and people look strange, the biggest surprise was how well the cards work. The set is open, so I can add a card at any time, or even cancel the one that is not longer relevant.

In the beginning, I was ashamed and worked with them only when I was alone. Later I showed them to a few of my friends. And now I have decided to show samples to you! 😊

With love, Ivana

Happy birthday!

In these days, a lot of my friends celebrate their birthday and unlike previous years, I will not have the opportunity to celebrate with them. Life is a continuous evolution, and there is nothing more to do than to accept it. So, even at a distance, happy birthday to all of you!

I was born in the Scorpio sign as well, and my birthday is coming next Saturday. As always, around my birthday, I feel some change of energy flow in my life. It is an undefined tension, like when you have a tremor before the show. I have already learned to accept it as a fact and not to worry about it.

But still I am the person of many questions and I like to discover at least the clue to a hidden mystery. Due to a regularity of the energy flow changes around my birthday I have been looking for answers or explanations. The pattern of numbers and tarot cards gives me a kind of understanding what is hidden beneath.

Now, I am going to enter the energy of the Hanged man in the big cycle of Lovers. Briefly it means the energy of dead ends in the area of relationships. Yes, it helps me to accept zero celebrations with my friends this year. And I have felt the necessity to change my friends’ portfolio for some time, but I am a conservative person who doesn’t like to lose what cares about. But again, life is an evolution and we cannot keep everything to block the stream.

The Hanged man card contains a message. You see the world upside down and you have to change your angle of view radically to heal yourself. It is useless to continue on the same path because it doesn’t lead to anywhere. That would be head against the wall.

And this is something difficult to accept, even though I am well aware that the Hanged man card is the shadow that precedes release and abundance. There must to be a sacrifice to bring the result. This is a historical formula that can be applied up today. But still it hurts.

And that’s why my mood is not cheerful and my post lacks a joke. I hope it will improve soon!

But still with love,

Ivana
