Tarot Year 2022 - Significant Number 2
2022 (2+0+2+2=6) is, symbolically and energetically, a Number ‘6’ Year. However, the repetition of the number 2 in the Year Date is interesting. The significances implied by the number 2 and the number 6 can be very complimentary.
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.)
The energy of the number 2, of The High Priestess II, is highly feminine and fluid. Like water it can be as deep as the deepest ocean; possessing the strange, unique and unfamiliar. It can erode and change the most resistant landscapes. The endless sky, is the space of superconsciousness' perhaps collective consciousness. And, as we live with these dynamic, complementary and contradictory influences, in the essence of pro-creation, we must we weave our own tapestry of life.
The High Priestess II signifies that we are born with powerful intuition, insight and the ability to feel subtle energies instinctively and empathically.
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 represents lawful and truthful acts. She may situations that require some sort of legal or contractual scrutiny or arbitration. Justice II decisions may result in recommendations that are made on the basis of actual, factual and material information. So, when Justice II arrives on the scene, make sure that you have "dotted your i's and crossed your t's" as there is no room for sloppiness in the detail.
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!
