Dana’s Cards, January 1

Yesterday I had the pleasure of doing several Oracle Readings for friends, clients, and students regarding the year to come.

This morning on this first day of the New Year, I share my own personal reading of the year to come with you.


What doors will be open in the coming year?

What memories will be made?

January 1-1

This first layer looks at what will be remembered at the end of this year, the significant events and energies that are yet to come.

To follow my heart will prove to open doors and show possibilities.

There also promises to be a time of feeling lost, perhaps this is a time of an attunement and shifting perspectives. This will prove to be significant and memorable.

Heaven is in the breast eternity is now

My heart will open up with greater insight to the struggles that many are facing, offering a lending hand and the support when I can.

What I will create will come from within, a deep place of shadow and magic.

And my thoughts, dreams and connection to source will bring me to a deeper understanding of the balance of the world around us and especially the balance of the world within me.

The hidden challenge will be keeping true to my intent. Perhaps it is for me to keep a clear head of where I am going and what I wish to accomplish.

Ultimately what will be remembered as significant in the coming year considering all that has been shown so far is creating space for something to grow and flourish? Being part of the community cultivating more than at this time we can even imagine.

January 1-2

This second layer will shed light on the start of the year. The year will start out with intense self-discovery. It will be for me to go deeper into who I am than I ever have before, this does sound a bit daunting, but the doors that will open promise to show amazing enlightenment just on the other side.

What will be revealed is how wounded my heart and soul is at this moment. The self-discovery will shine light on the shadows and places that are crying out for balance and transformation.

The hidden message may be the true depth of unconditional love. I believe this will come to light on how I interact with community, friends, lovers, and all the people who come to me for transformation and enlightenment.


You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself

January 1-3

The third and final layer speaks of the end of the year. By year end there will be great strides in discovering my true purpose. The path to get there is a bit unclear, but keeping a pure heart will do much to light the way. To get to this place of discovering my deeper purpose there will be challenges to overcome; the challenges will be my own self judgment, fears, and doubt of my own self-worth.

The hidden truth that will be discovered by the conclusion of this year is the completeness of where I will be. Not that there won’t be many more miles to travel, but that I will reach the space of balance, understanding, and indeed having space to breathe.

Ultimately by the end of the year the deeper meaning of nonjudgmental acceptance and union will be made just a bit clearer.


As with every year we have the pleasure of living this gift of life there will be joy and heartache, pain and pleasure, failures and triumphs, love and loss, and so much more. The cards tell me that my key to experience this year to come fully is to go inside to discover my true self and follow my heart to dance in pure joy with all who walk this path of living a vibrant and fulfilling life.
