Tarot Year 2022 - Significant Number 2
Looking at the 'values’ each digit in the date 2022 (2+0+2+2=6), The High Priestess II gives a prevalence and significance to the number two, tripling the importance of this energy in our lives for the coming year. (In a later post, we will also look at the influence of The Fool 0 which offers the vibration of the number 'zero'. A new adventure.)
In The High Priestess II we understand that we are both eternal and ‘unfinished’. Our lives follow the phases of the moon. Events in our life wax and wane under the natural conditions of Earth's duality – of night and day, light and dark, yin and yang, male and female, etc. This continuing change brings growth, fullness and completion and, decline. It forms the essence and value of the experiences of living. The High Priestess demonstrates the capacity for deep feeling and inner guidance as the qualities and attributes we have 'been born with' and remain continually at our disposal throughout our own ‘Fool’s Journey’.
Similarly, the decisions and choices we make today - individually and collectively - will always influence our future. Tarot Justice II (1 + 1 = 2) symbolises the universal 'Law of Karma' or the law of ‘cause and effect’. Justice II reminds us to strive for all that is honest, fair and just. Justice II makes her decisions rationally and factually and, by taking a completely balanced and unbiased approach to all aspects or sides of any situation.
Justice II is one of the four Tarot Virtues and suggests transformation of the self. Additionally, we see that the veil raised behind Justice II (The Rider-Waite-Smith) is purple, which is the colour of mysticism, magic and wisdom. Purple signifies our third eye or 7th Chakra, which contains all the qualities of the other 6 Chakras. The 7th Chakra connects us to our inner-seeing, intuition and psychic abilities. If we are prepared to follow her guidance Justice II can help us to perceive our selves and the world around us, in wholly new ways.
The Tarot implies that the Year 2022 holds the potential for new beginnings and events that are unusual, exciting and historic. Tarot suggests that 2022 may quite possibly be an adventure of a lifetime!
