Page of Pentacles As the year winds down in earnest, it’s time to reflect on what you want to manifest in 2018. What have you been dreaming of doing? Plant that seed now and create a plan for taking action next year. Remember, it’s not enough to simply set an intention. You must have a viable, practical set of steps lined up or your dream risks remaining just that: a dream. Look at what steps are necessary and reverse-engineer your life to reach your goal. This may be the right time to invest a bit of capital or take a class, or to reach out to that influential person who may just have the connections you need. Even small steps started in December could pave the way for a big finish next year.The Page of Pentacles also indicates that money matters may need your attention. It’s possible that you may find yourself with some extra cash this month. If Santa is good to you, don’t spend that all in one place. Instead, think of what you can do with this money to further your dream. Don’t blow this wad – invest it in your future. You may also want to put together a holiday budget at the beginning of the month so that you can rein in your expenses. Christmas doesn’t need to be expensive. Put the credit cards away and look for meaningful gifts that don’t break the bank. It may not be as hard as you think!Lastly, this month may bring important news – or an offer you cannot refuse. If a door opens up, step through it. It may be the beginning of a fabulous new chapter in your career. There is a ton of possibility on the other side of this offer. You may have to prove yourself in some way but don’t let that deter you. Consider this month the first step in many right directions.–Theresa Reed (aka “The Tarot Lady”) has been a full-time Tarot card reader for close to 30 years.
