Hey there friends, welcome to your Monthly Forecast Reading for the month of December. So happy you’re here joining me and it’s looking like it’s going to be a very exciting December. For many of you, some of this is going to be a powerful transformation month. For some of you that might be a little bit more uncomfortable, transitions that end up with just way more space, way more options on the table. For others, this could be like a skate in the park. I don’t think that that’s a saying, but I’m going to say it anyways. It’s going to feel very easy for some of you, really lush and enjoyable and maybe romantic. So I’m excited for you to take a look. You can hop on my email list down below for more of my exclusive content and I look forward to connecting with you again soon so, enjoy the reading. 

Wherever you happen to be right now. Give yourself a moment to take a few deep breaths. Allow your awareness to drop down into your feeling sense, the feeling sense of your body, the feeling sense of your emotions, and maybe just notice your breath for a few moments allowing your consciousness to come into this one eternal moment.

Alright, call out to Mother Father God, the Denizens of Light, the deep ones, the rooted ones, call out to the Grandmothers and the Grandfathers of the North, the South, the East and the West. Please be with us now. Help bring through a clear message and provide us with the energy that we need right now for our healing and continued growth and awareness. Alright, we will be looking at the month of December, and you’ll be utilizing your own intuition to choose a card here, and then subsequently, you can skip forward to the reading that corresponds with the card that you choose. So take a moment and bring forward your feeling. So rather than just utilizing your mind in this decision process, see if you can include your body, include the entirety of your holistic intelligence, and then just notice which of these cards, which of these shapes is calling to you today. Trusting the card that’s calling to you or the decision that you’re making. And then feel free to skip ahead for the reading that is most applicable to you today for the month of December. 

So the first card that we’ll look at is our first choice underneath the cube. And just for a moment, I’m going to tune in with you. So give me a moment here. Those of you that will choose the first card. All right, let’s take a look, the first card will be the Overall Circumstance for the month of December. These are the lessons that you are learning, that you are going through. Basically at any point in your life, there is a growing process, there is a learning process that you are going through. It is impossible to step off the learning path. Now whether you’re conscious of that and meeting it or whether you are not conscious of it and resisting it, that is to be seen. So, overall context of the month of December for you. Second card will be the Obstacle card, which is the reciprocal pressure. There’s a direction that you are attempting to grow and then there’s the pressures of life, the parts of yourself that are resisting, the places that are asking you to become more conscious. Sometimes these show up as obstacles or challenges when in reality they’re a part of the growth process that you are going through. Third card will be the Outcome Card, the overall outcome of the month of December, what you can expect in terms of your own development and growth, as well as what you may be stepping into next in terms of your life experience. And up above, underneath the cube will be the, what do we call it, the recommendations or Advice card.

So let’s take a look at your first card, the overall outcome for the month of December. We’ve got our lovely Knight of Cups here. You might notice that the Knight of Cups, he’s presenting his cup, he’s opened up his mask, his shield is no longer covering his face. So he’s wanting to be seen, which is also an act of authenticity or vulnerability. This is also the one card of the Knights where he’s moving at sort of a gentle pace, there’s not a lot of rushing forward, there’s not a lot of moving. There’s a bit of pageantry. The horse isn’t walking like a normal trot. There’s sort of a showiness there. So, often the Knight of Cups is showing up when you are in the process of courting someone or courting something. In other words, you are wanting to create a kind of mediation with somebody. Maybe you are trying to get a particular business project to move forward or in the love realm this can be when there’s somebody that you’re interested in and you’re wanting to show them your colors, you’re wanting to show them that you’re a worthy mate or that you’re somebody that they should be interested in. So, for some of you, this can show up as yourself. You might be feeling sort of creative, illustrious. You might be in a place right now where you’re feeling pretty romantic, creative, energized by the movement of words and poetry and this sort of thing. For others, this can be a representation of somebody else that is either courting you for work or creative projects, or this can be a romantic interest that is starting to knock on your door. Somebody is beginning to make it clear that they’re interested in you. There’s an interesting sort of flavor to this that it feels sort of traditional. You might be having somebody that’s showing up in your life and courting you in a very traditional manner, which means they’re very careful about their words. They’re not making it overly obvious that they’re interested, but they might invite you on a date in a very cordial fashion. Would you like to go on a date with me? I want to make it clear that this is a date and that I am interested in you. There’s sort of an old worldly flavor to what’s going on here. There’s a lot of romanticism that’s behind this. Obviously this is one of the court cards and the energy that I’m feeling behind it is this sort of a conservative traditional way of being. So this might be showing up in terms of business. This could show up in romance or in your personal life. 

Let’s take a look at what the obstacles are here. There’s such a powerful feeling behind this that has a regality or clarity of intention, which might be something that you are developing. It could be the way that you are starting to connect with the people around you. 

So let’s take a look at your Obstacle card for the month of December. Wow, so interesting, The Sun card in this particular position, as you can see, The Sun card is a lot of energy, a lot of growth. Sometimes this card is represented as sort of a lustiness for life, it is primordial, creative energy, young energy. Everything is growing and expanding and developing. It’s the solar energy, which can be kind of an intense energy when you meet somebody and you fall head over heels for them kind of in a manic way where it’s almost uncontrollable, you can’t stop thinking about them. You’re smiling all of the time. That’s what this sun card can represent. It’s this almost uncontrollable effervescence, this uncontrollable joy and excitement and movement. That’s the representation of this red flag is this red, passionate, fiery energy. So what we can see in terms of some of the places where these two are not connecting or where they’re sort of in opposition, the Knight of Cups is moving at a very gentle, easy pace. He’s moving forward with clarity, with intention, that traditional sort of quality, I can’t find the right word for that. It’s not landing for some reason. Formal. Yeah, that’s the right word. He’s moving forward in this very formal, clarified way. The Sun card has sort of a fiery manic quality to it, it’s uncontrollable. There’s nothing I can do about this. I’m absolutely in love. So some of you might start to experience what can sometimes be called or termed or what I like to call it a soul infusion. Some people call it minor kundalini expansion, but it’s where you either meet somebody or you have a particular experience that just makes you feel really expanded and really excited. And if you’re energetic piping the meridians that your nervous system in general is closed off in certain areas that can feel a little bit overwhelming. It can sort of be a disorienting experience. It feels like you have to, there’s no other choice. You have to express your love. There’s no other choice. You have to go do this. It’s not fully landed in a softer, more patient place. So that might be a little bit of what’s going on with The Sun card. It’s not necessarily like a horrible thing to be coming up against. It just means it’s important to have places to ground some of the energy that’s likely going to come in this month, places to express yourself, and a willingness not to get overly impulsive, but to really take heed of this one step at a time, intentional, being open and vulnerable, willing to sort of take your time with things. 

Let’s take a look at the outcome card for the month of December for those of you that shows, and we’ll choose this first card. Wow, this is such a powerful reading. For those of you that chose this first grouping of cards, your Outcome card is a great representation of what it takes to cultivate this kind of intentional, easygoing movement, which is the Chariot card. And the Chariot Card has a lot to do with your own will, your own willpower, your own creating your own container of intentionality and following through using your own will. So something that we can look at is this star canopy. That’s a canopy that’s above the chariot rider and the star and the moons that are sort of integrating into his armor here is that the celestial world, in other words, his manifestation capacities, his intuition, his relationship with higher wisdom is coming through and being all the way grounded into life. So there are many people out there, you might be one of them, but there are many people out there that are highly capable of the imaginal world, the etheric world, they feel touched by the Divine, they feel like they’ve got strong intuition, but then their life doesn’t mirror what it is that they have insights into. And this is a sign that some of the worldly parts of themselves have not been integrated. The parts of themselves, the parts of themselves that are connected with relationships, with money, with business, with integrity, with boundaries, might not be fully integrated yet. And so there’s a lot that’s going on up here. And basically what this is saying is that this is going to be a powerful, powerful month of learning to hold the beauty, the bliss, the excitement in a more embodied place. And the way that that happens is going to be holding your intention with clarity, knowing what it is that you want, and implementing the pathway forward, step by step, using your own willpower to create the container that can allow you to become the person that you’re wanting to become. 

Holy macaroni, what a powerful, powerful pathway this December is going to be for those of you that have chosen this first card. So I’m going to take a look at this final advice card. This is likely going to help us understand how you can walk this powerful path that’s coming up. Yeah, okay. Yeah, what an incredible reading here, everyone of those of you that chose this first card, this is going to be quite a potent month. 

So, the Strength card is all about integrity, patience, and compassion. So in particular, one of the things that shows up when there’s a lot of passionate lusty, young oriented energy, and if your vessel hasn’t been created strong enough yet, is that sometimes that energy blurts out in directions that we don’t want it. A good example of this is somebody that say, you’re extremely attracted to somebody and it feels really good, but you’re so attracted to them that you say something ridiculous or you put your hand on their shoulder or on their back when it’s an inappropriate time to do that. Or you get so nervous that you have to leave the situation because there’s so much energy, which is a beautiful thing, but the container’s not holding it. So the Strength card is a reminder to align with your inner values, align with your inner integrity, and bring compassion to the parts of yourself that are not integrated yet. The parts that are nervous, the parts that feel not good enough, it’s time to bring and shine some of that wisdom and that light on those parts of yourself. 

What a beautiful reading. So for those of you that chose the first card, this is your forecast reading for the month of December. Thank you so much for tuning in with me, and I look forward to connecting with you again in the future. Take good care. 

Alright, so we’ll now move to those of you that chose the second card for your reading for the month of December. Oops. So I’m just going to tune in now with those of you that chose the second card. So just give me a moment. All right, so the first card is the Circumstance card, the basic sort of overview of what’s going to be going on for you in the month of December. This tends to be about your own growth and learning process at this time in your life. Second card is going to be the Obstacle card, which is the reciprocal energy, the energy that’s pushing against you, that’s allowing you to grow into yourself with more integrity. And third card is the Outcome card, which will give you a sense of what it is that you will learn as a result of this month and as a result of the circumstances and some of what you might be stepping into next. 

So let’s take a look at your first card, the overall circumstances of the month of December for you. So here we’ve got our Emperor, and The Emperor is the master of organization, of structure, of systems. He is wielding power over an entire empire, and so he has to be impeccably organized. He has to keep everything in place. He’s kind of the master of the material realm and the movement of the material realm. He’s learned how to put things in action and move them in direction so that goals can be accomplished. So you can see he’s holding the orb right here. He’s also holding, I believe that’s an ankh from the Egyptian, or is that an ankh? It might be a Greek Orthodox Cross. Regardless, it represents the connection to the Divine will, and the circle represents the relationship to the worldly realm. And so how is it that we take higher order and bring it into the structure of the material realm is some of the mastery and competency that comes with The Emperor card. So for some of you, this might be a time of reevaluating structure in your life, learning how to organize your intentions, organize your day-to-day activities, create more of a groundedness. This is also a place of stepping into new layers of wisdom. Wisdom means that you don’t have to fight as many wars or as many battles. You can see underneath his cloak, he’s got armor on. So at one point in time he was a great warrior, and after conquering, after doing battle, after putting his will into action, he’s now able to enjoy the fruits of creating structures that mean that he doesn’t have to fight as many wars. So for some of you, this might show up as a maturation process this month. For others, it could be that you’re dealing with a boss or you’re dealing with a patriarchal figure that is either supporting you or creating trouble. So on the positive end of the spectrum, The Emperor is a sign of good organization, good structure and supportive systems. On the negative side of the spectrum, it’s feeling oppressed, controlled, it can be too overly particular, overly controlling. This can be an external figure. This can be in yourself. You might be choking off your creative fire and your creative energy because you’re so hyper-focused on controlling things. 

But let’s take a look at what the obstacle card is and that will give us a bit more context into what’s going on with this Emperor card here. So the Obstacle card is showing up as our King of Wands and the King of Wands and The Emperor have a few things in common. The first of which being they’re both really fantastic leaders. They’ve got great foresight they can see into the future. That being said, oh, we might also say that there’s a lot of relationship between them because the King of Wands was also once a warrior. You might still consider him a warrior to some degree, but he’s tempered that and now is able to use his wisdom and insight to see the long view. So there could be a bit of conflict between parts of your own creative energy and the people that are structures in your life, whether that’s businesses that you work for, like your job or bosses or partners or father figures, your own creative energy. Your own creative essence might be coming to a creative fruition. You might be stepping more fully into your own mastery and as a result, you could be finding some conflict with figures in your life that feel like there’s stifling. Those can be individuals, those can be circumstances like financial circumstances or job circumstances or obligations that you’re having to deal with. The other way that we can look at this is that the negative side of the King of Wands can sometimes be a kind of immaturity around being stubborn and wanting things to go your way. In which case, the invitation here is to start to look at the broader view. How is it what you are wanting, what you’re wanting to create meshes with the larger organizational structure around you, whether that’s your community, the business that you’re working with or your friendship or family group. How is it that creative life, your creative structure can begin to blend with and be synergistic, support the larger structure here? I’m going to give a little bit of precedence to The Emperor here, just because of this relationship to Divine order being balanced with worldly order, we’re all going through that process on some level or another. We certainly are going through it at a collective level, which is how it is that the structures in our world can mesh with the Divine direction, the direction that the globe and the cosmos are evolving towards in general. 

So let’s take a look at your Outcome card for the month of December. Interesting, so something that I’m seeing across the board here is that there’s a structural organization that’s wanting to happen or a structural reorganization that’s wanting to happen here. So certainly The Emperor is representative of structure. The King of Wands has gone through many different iterations of his creative energy and has landed in greater structure, greater balance. Fours are about structure. Often when a Four arrives, it means that something is going to get a little bit wobbly in the process of finding greater balance, like a table has four legs. So the outcome here could result in some time of reflection, feeling like you need to step back, reassess what’s going on around you, figure out how it is that your creative calling, how your vocation fits into the greater movement that’s around you, the relational context, the environmental or business context that’s in your life right now. And some of what’s being advised here is can you listen to the higher insight? Can you listen to the cup that’s coming out of the cloud here, the gift that’s coming from your higher wisdom.

Alright, so let’s take a look, finally at your Advice card for the month of December. Advice card is to find the part of yourself that feels like it’s not enough, like it’s insufficient in some way, looking for and relating to the scarcity, the places in you that are holding some scarcity and bringing those close, bringing those into your awareness so that you can love them. Five of Pentacles, draw back the orphans of your consciousness, the parts of yourself that had to be boop, booted out to fit in or to survive. Bring those back into your awareness, heal them, love them up. And that’s what allows for greater alignment internally and therefore greater alignment with the structures around you. So for those of you that chose the second card, that was your reading for the month of December, thank you for tuning in with me. I look forward to connecting with you again soon. Take good care.

Alright, and so now we’ll switch over to our third and final reading. So for those of you that chose the third card, this is going to be your reading for the month of December. I’m just going to tune in with you now, so give me a moment. All right, the first card is going to be the Circumstance, the general situation that is going to be going on for you in the month of December. This tends to look like what it is that you’re learning, what you’re growing through at this time. Second card will be the Obstacle card, which is the reciprocal energy, the energy that’s pushing against your learning and growing process as part of your development, as part of your development of integrity and clarity. And the third card will be your outcome card, which will give you a general sense of what it is that you’ll be learning through this time and potentially what you can expect from what you’ll be stepping into next. 

Alright, let’s take a look at your general circumstance for the month of December. Looks like you can expect some rocky roads ahead. We’ve got our Tower card. As you can see, the Tower in the traditional Rider Waite Tarot Deck, there’s lightning that’s hit the Tower, which means the Tower is beginning to crumble. The Tower is on this hard rocky substance down below, which means that it’s been something that has felt secure, grounded, like you could organize yourself around it and organize your life around it. This might be something that you’re highly aware of, like a relationship or a sense of identity. Ooh, I’m a fireman, or I am this. I’m always the guy that always wins, or whatever that may be. And what this is saying is that some part of your world, some part of your identity is going to get shaken up. In the example that I just used, the fireman suddenly realizes that he has bad hips and can’t be a fireman anymore and he’s going to have to find a different career. And that’s really upsetting for somebody that’s like, this is what I am. Now, it can be something large like that or like a relationship or a place that you’re living, or it can be something much subtler. The more that we do deep work on ourselves, it can become more and more subtle. It could be something like, oh, my name is this and I am identified with my body. That’s who I am. And it can be the realization that like, oh, I’m actually not my body. I’m something that transcends. Maybe it includes the body, but it transcends the body. And these things can be very disruptive to our consciousness. So needless to say, it’s quite possible that there’s going to be something that gets shaken loose and shaken up during the month of December. Let’s see if we can get a bit more information of what that might look like at the end of the day. While these are not, they don’t tend to be very comfortable situations. The loosening up of stickiness is good. All of us are evolving towards greater fluidity, greater complexity, which means that the places in us that are like, this is how it is always, it’s always going to be this way. This is who I am. Those pieces need to be dissolved and it can be uncomfortable, but it’s ultimately moving you towards greater relationship with who you actually are and more flexibility about what you’re about, who you are, what can happen.

Alright, let’s take a look at your Obstacle card here. I mean, this is such a traditional, beautiful combination, and it is generally the way that it goes because in the process of something that you deeply identify with beginning to get shaken up, the obstacle is stepping into the new. So we’ve got our Fool card here, which is the unknown, stepping into unknown territory, stepping into massive potential, which can be really beautiful. The sky is or the world is yours. The horizon is you can go as far as you want, any direction you have complete freedom, which can be really beautiful. It also can be absolutely terrifying because there’s something that was your ground, that was the ground beneath you, that’s being dissolved. And now it’s like, who am I? Where am I going? What happens next? I don’t know what’s going to occur. Pretty classic combination here is what I should say. So it might be important to pay attention to the ways in which you are gripping to that which is disappearing because it’s scary to step into what’s not known because it’s scary to be in the beginner’s mind realm, to be in the place of, I don’t know, maybe you’re 25, maybe you’re 65, maybe you’re somewhere in that whatever range. And it’s like, oh my gosh, I have to start over with something. Oh my gosh, I have to look at myself in a way that I’ve never seen myself before. And that sure can be scary. 

Let’s take a look at your Outcome card for the month of December. This is great. So something spooky starts to shake up. This could be something big like a relationship or a job situation. It could be something more subtle like a sense of who you are or what you’re about or what you like. And the big move is going to be the willingness to step into the unknown, which can be quite spooky. And you’re going to result with standing in the Two of Wands, which is, oh, I do have the world in my hands. I do have lots of possibilities, lots of potentials. You can see that one of his wands is like, well grounded, the other one he’s holding onto. So there’s more stability that comes as a result of this. He’s also looking out to the horizon, starting to get curious about what do I want to do next? What are the edges of what’s possible for me? So this is actually a really exciting month for you. I see powerful possibilities of what you’re going to be looking at as you step into the new year. It could feel like a revolutionary time and yeah, it’s quite exciting.

So let’s take a look at your Advice card for the month of December. Not terribly surprising that the advice is saying whatever it is that’s starting to leave, let it go. Let it be dead. Let it be gone for good. Particularly if it’s been giving you a hellish time, you’ve been wrestling with whatever this is, you’ve been fighting with it, you’ve been trying to make it different. The Ten of Swords is saying, let it die, let it be done, finish it, vanquish it. Allow yourself to step into the unknown and move forward into something more powerful, more beautiful. In other words, the parts of you that are gripping onto something that’s leaving because it’s what you know and you’re scared of this newness. This is saying like maybe start to just let go, just let go. I know that’s easier said than done. For those of you that are in this particular phase of your life, I have an amazing workshop called the Embodied Freedom Workshop, which is all about training and learning to open your nervous system to greater, higher consciousness, to greater energies in the transformative process. I do it twice a year. So this is definitely the type of constellation that I would say is a good time to get that kind of support. Whether from a workshop like what I’m doing or from somebody that is a spiritual guide or a therapist. Just throwing it out there that support during big transitions can be invaluable. 

So for those of you that chose the third card, this is your reading for the month ahead. Thanks for tuning in with me. You can hop on my email list down below and get more exclusive content. And I look forward to connecting with you in the coming months, and I hope you take very good care of yourself, sending lots of love and blessings to you. Take care.

    Hi Jonathan,
    Why in the first place I chose the first card, well I was lead to – even though it was not my inclination this is a 5D reading too good to be true. I’m keeping my fingers crossed 🤞 as well as my toes, if there is such a thing for keeping toes crossed. I need to keep reading this twice as again more & more in this month to contain this energy. Thank you😃

    Oh wow… What an introduction to Jonathan! The third card (the one I picked) is spot on. About 15 minutes before clicking the link to this reading, I had my head in my hands telling myself I’ve screwed up my whole life by leaving a secure job I no longer liked after almost 16 years. This reading has given me so much hope for the future, that I’ve made the right decision, and that I’ll be ok.

    Thank you ❤️

    I love your whole style brother. The way you speak to each aspect of the card was so clear, insightful, and relevant to me. I picked the first card, and happen to be riding a comet at the moment. Your message of intentionality, patience, compassion, and integrity is well noted. I feel like the sun at the moment, but to be objective, I do sense a need to be clear and controlled. I love whatever deck you’re using by the way. The details and foil are rad. Thank you for this well-timed advice, and I’m wishing you well!
