December ~ Elder of Air (King of Swords)
Gaian tarot ( www.gaiantarot.com )

This is VERY interesting. At the first of the year, when I drew a significator card for the 2016 year, I drew the Elder of Air. Now, for the last month of the year, I draw the Elder of Air --- so I'm under the double influence of the Elder of Air this month--- both general and specific.

This is particularly lovely for me as I am particularly drawn to the air (swords) cards.. It isn't very surprising as I'm a very mental person and air is mental, thought and reason, justice, truth, and ethical principles. It also rules mental clarity and the intellect.

With the double influence this month, I get to think clearly and be able to come to conclusions through reason and be able to plan and put that plan into action. I will be inspired and know that my plans will be balanced as well as ethical and fair to others.

I'm happy that I have a double dose of the outward focus of the Elder and will be able to be in control of what I'm doing. Yea! for Elders and clear practical planning!

"Celebrate, Celebrate, dance to the music!"

What a perfect theme for the month of Thanksgiving! A time to interact with my community and add my own unique contribution. Celebrating by dancing and other forms of celebratory forms of exercise will keep me moving and allow me to stay on my program!

October ~ Ace of Air (Swords)
Gaian tarot ( www.gaiantarot.com/ )

How appropriate, an air card for an air month! This will be a month of the opportunity to learn more about mental clarity when it comes to thinking reasonably about my health and eating. I will see beyond the potential and know that this is the starting point to make simple and easy changes in my out-moded ideas, habits, and attitudes. I can follow my goals and program in a lighthearted manner.

August ~ 6 The Lovers
Gaian tarot

This card is asking me if I am following my passions.It can be love of a special person, an animal, or a creative art or craft. This month I choose to work on my passion for my creative side to find how I can integrate that which I'm passionate about to become more a part of my life. As I do it, I look for the balance that the art needs in my life so I don't become out of sync and to maintain the equilibrium with other parts of my daily life. I trust I haven't bitten off more than I can chew this month.

Using this because of JUNO for June, though not completely in agreement with the interpretation of Juno as tradition (turns out she is much more than that)

TRADITION, aka Hierophant

From guide: The powerful Roman Goddess Juno is affiliated with Tradition. The traditions expressed in Juno's ceremonies give comfort to their practitioners, offering a sense of continuity as they passed from one generation to the next. However tradition for tradition's sake can empty any ritual of power: to keep them meaningful traditions sometimes need to be questioned and revitalized. This card can represent a desire for security and structure in one's life. It may also symbolize the forging of marital bonds for love relationships.

April Significator ~ Ace of Water (Cups)
Gaian tarot

This month I need to pay attention to my emotional beginnings and trust my heart above all. I need to pay attention to self-love and caring as it will expand from a small beginning to a full connection with self-compassion that will build my intuition and flow into heart’s desire. OK --- I'm ready for it to be so!

March - 4 of Swords:

This card is fitting for for me and the month of March. Four of swords implies it is time for a break. A break from the battle to calm oneself and make a new plan. I actually made a commitment to myself, (started Leap Day) to take 30 days and study Tarot each morning. To commit to my treadmill and try eating gluten free, sugar free, and keep the dairy to just a little butter, and half/half for my coffee.

MARCH ~ Four of Earth (Pentacles)

This is the month that I need to pay attention to my foundations and structures. Do my boundaries need mended or be used to protect? I need to watch and carefully manage my resources to make sure the good energies remain and the negative ones are kept out.

That's a really beautiful image and interpretation of the swords. The ten in the deck I used was really gruesome, but I see how both interpretations/images fit my current life. Thank you for all your very insightful and detailed message!!!

Hi GRYFFINSONG ~ Personally, I think that the Swords get a really bad rap and have since the beginning. Swords are Air and take in communication, thinking, change, ambition, courage, and conflict — primarily mental and internal although if we react instead of act it can be external and negative.

I've felt for a long time that because Swords have been associated with change and communication it's automatically going to cause conflict and is just plain negative from the start; whereas if it's cups it's automatically positive and in balance — yeah sure.

Change can be lovely, sought out, and very positive and so can your thoughts be positive. It has been proven in the past few years that if you don't like what you're thinking, change the thoughts to something you do like — it's pretty much that easy. In the past, even as close as a decade ago, it was believed that whatever you though was unchangeable and you were stuck with the negative. The Swords have been given such a bad rap and are unfortunately viewed as so negative.

I respond very strongly to Air (Swords) as I am a person who love thinking and also loves change, I “rock the boat” if things are going too smoothly. Change is inevitable and yes at times it removes from our lives things that we’d rather stay, but it also bring in excitement and removes the old that is holding us down. The only time change is painful is when we resist it.

When I got the Gaian tarot deck and found they related the Swords to it’s element, it took on a whole new meaning for me and I love it! The 10 of Air card is a card of geese flying in formation against pink clouds and it’s definition centers around releasing of plans, ideas and strategies. I also like to think that since it is air that it’s important, now more than ever, to listen to the wisdom whispers in the air. I see the air saying that it is important to remember to keep *thinking* of yourself as light and airy rather than heavy and embedded in your surrounding — lighten up, let your thoughts have wings and you will be able to fly.

Blessings,
Collien~~~

February significator: 10 of swords.

I have to laugh. Was just posting about not wanting a relationship, and this card looks like one person is stabbing another person's heart out. Already looks dead, with two huge wounds, and ready to take another strike. I have been feeling a little pissed off that everyone else seems to have a helper/partner/companion/lover. Even though I do better alone, as my health issues plague me, I sometimes wish I had someone to hold me and tell me "there, there, everything will be ok."

But I think this card goes far beyond that right now. I've been feeling really angry about politics and the direction that certain things are going in the country. This card seems to be telling me that I'm literally beating myself up about things that I can't change. And I need to let that go, sign petitions, vote, discuss occasionally, but not take it personally. Stop fretting about "end of the world" type thoughts if fundamentalists get control of our government.

I need to focus on me. On my art. On all the things that relationships distract me from. My relationship with politics and news, right now, is not healthy for me.

This is the month that I need to trust my own heart! Good card for the month that Valentine's day appears and has everyone thinking of love. Not looking for a connection or a significant other, yet I'm willing to follow my heart in connection with friendship and making a more loving connection with myself.

2016 Year Significator: Queen of Disks

Such a lovely card for the year! It seems medieval, perhaps nordic. Since I will spend over four months (possibly closer to six) this year at renaissance festivals, I love the look of her. I feel as if I'm finally getting the hang of how to combine my creativity with what people want, and expect this year to be a good one. She rests with her eyes closed. Peaceful. Snuggling a child, which feels like my art career. My own child, my career. Around them are goats, a shield to protect her boundaries, and herbs above her head, to keep her healthy.

2016 January Significator: Ace of Disks

Woohoo! Beginning to become the queen. A sweet, little field mouse holds a lovely coin with a fleur de lis on it. surrounding the mouse are a bunch of lovely purple flowers. I'm reminded that purple is a color for creativity. It's also the color for cancer survivors. I'm now seven years post diagnosis, and doing very well. And this morning I had a small growth removed from my nose. Almost certainly benign, but it made for a stressful day. Biopsy results in a week or so.

SPARKLINGME176 ~ This topic is for once a month drawings to set the tone to the month.

The Daily Draw is for cards drawn for less than a month. Just because it says that it is a "daily" draw doesn't mean that a card will necessarily be drawn for that day. You may prefer to draw weekly or at odd times during the month. How often you draw is up to you. Or how many cards you draw is also up to you. Personally, I normally draw a daily card to set the tone for my day and see if I need to watch out for any pitfalls for that day. It normally doesn't take me more than 5 minutes to do so.

If you want to comment on other readings to add to knowledge of the card(s) drawn on another post, please do so. If you want comment on your readings or specific cards you are having problems with please ask for assistance. I'm sure our posters will be happy to assist.

Blessings,

I am adding a new section this year. The year and each month will have a special draw to pull a significator card. Please be advised that this is the space where you are welcome not only to put your own year and/or monthly significator cards with your comments on how they are affecting your life, AND this is the place to comment on other posts to assist each of us to grow in our understanding of the cards.

I will start with mine

2016 Significator card ~ Elder (King) of Air (Swords)

In the Gaian deck this is an elder playing a flute against a sky with white clouds. Generally the Elder of air offers the gifts of inspiration, balance, and clarity. His tools are worship, praise, and meditation. What a wonderful significator card for my new year. I love having direction and this is a great direction for me to go!

January 2016 Significator card ~ Four of Fire (Wands)

This is one of my favorite cards in the Gaian deck! A lady dressed in orange in a desert at night in a power pose. I have found my personal space and am discovering and celebrating my personal power knowing that within my personal power space I can do anything I want to accomplish. Great card for fulfilling my desires and resolutions --- I have the power!
