Hi, I'm Brigit, founder of Biddy Tarot, and this is the monthly Tarot forecast for December, 2016.

Well, Happy End of the Year!

Can you believe it; this is the end of 2016?

I hope you have had an awesome, awesome year and this is a really good time to now just reflect on everything that you’ve been able to achieve for the year, as you get ready to step into 2017.


So, let’s take a look at our Tarot cards for this month:


  • For the Blessings I have the Hermit card – interesting because we had the Hermit reversed as our Blessings in November;
  • Our Challenges – the Ten of Pentacles reversed; and
  • For our Action, we’ve got the Ace of Swords reversed

So let’s dig in.

So for our Hermit again – this guy wants us to know we need to take more time for ourselves.

I know that December’s a really busy time of the year – there are a lot of social events going on, plus you are probably trying to wrap things up ready for the new year.  So it’s easy to get sort of caught up in that day-to-day, and caught up in a lot of social activities, but what you also need is some time alone.

Some time to be like the Hermit, where you can reflect and go:  Okay, what’s happening inside of me?  What do I need in all of this?

The Hermit is also our spiritual teacher, and he’s asking you to come back to your Spirit and to your Soul.  And to really reflect, again, on this year that just passed, and think about:

  • What has been my spiritual journey in 2016?
  • And what have I learnt along the way?

The Hermit – he really wants to be in your life right now.  His energy is so strong, and I can’t tell you how important it is to take that time out, reflect, and connect in with your spiritual journey.

Okay, let’s take a look at our Challenges for this month – Ten of Pentacles reversed.

I don’t know about you, but I know that December can get very expensive because we do have a lot of social events and, if you celebrate Christmas, you’re buying lots of presents for family and friends.

So Ten of Pentacles reversed can indicate a time when the finances are struggling a little bit, and when you thought that you were beautiful and wealthy then maybe you’re just experiencing a temporary blip in your wealth.

So if it’s really important then maybe set a budget for yourself, so that you don’t sort of blow your credit cards out completely; or just accept that December is quite an expensive month, and just move through that.

The other thing with the Ten of Pentacles reversed is that it can sometimes indicate some discord within the family unit.

And, again, when we’re coming up to these celebrations at the end of the year, sometimes they can be amazing, but other times there can be a bit of conflict and tension within the family.  So please, just be conscious of this and do whatever you can to, not so much avoid the conflict, but deal with it in a really constructive way.  Don’t let it get in the way of you being able to connect as a family.  Family is so important at this time of the year – at any time of the year – and you just don’t want to jeopardise that connection that you share with your family.  So do whatever you can to make it a constructive relationship, especially during this month.

And finally, our Advice for this month – the Ace of Swords reversed.

Intuitively, the thing that’s jumping into my mind the most is, sometimes there are thoughts that you are going to have, that are better kept to yourself than being shared with others.  And that is particularly about this Ten of Pentacles reversed and potential for family conflict.

If you feel yourself just about to say something that you think would be quite controversial, particularly within your family, you might want to hold back and not say it, because our words can be very cutting – hence the Swords.  And even though we think we have power behind those words they can actually hurt other people and inflict harm.

And, of course, that’s not what we want.

So be really mindful with your words this month so that you’re not inflicting harm, you’re actually creating good with your conversations.

Now, the other Action with the Ace of Swords is that, again, we had the Ace of Wands reversed a little while ago, and that was kind of like that seed of inspiration emerging.  Well, we’re having another Ace reversed here which is, again, another seed being planted.

This one is more around your thoughts and the way that you see the world, and the way that you organise the world in your mind – your perceptions.

So you might start to feel like a bit of a breakthrough – a mental breakthrough – emerging as well.  So just pay attention to that and observe what’s happening with that.

So there you have it – even though it’s December and it’s probably the most social month of the year, the Hermit is asking you to please take some time out for yourself and reflect on your spiritual journey for this year. The Ten of Pentacles reversed reminds you that finances might be a little bit chaotic this month, and also to keep in mind the connections that you have with your family and try and deal with that constructively.  And the Ace of Swords reversed – be careful about what you say – some things are better left unsaid; and you may also start to feel a new breakthrough emerging.  It hasn’t really taken shape or form yet, but it is within you and you can feel it coming out.

So, there you go!

I hope you have an awesome month in December, and I look forward to connecting with you again in 2017.
