12 Intention Cards for 2023


New Year’s Eve the other day was 13 Iq’ in the Mayan calendar, an ideal day for divination and receiving communication from the spirit world and the ancestors. Plus, it was the last day of 2022, a banner year for many humans.

I hence sat on the balcony overlooking the lake, got myself centered, concentrated on the coming four seasons of the new calendar year, and pulled 12 cards (4 each from 3 decks). I hope they resonate with you and wish you a peaceful, heart-centered, joyous year ahead.

I. The Mythic Tarot

Winter 2023 (January 1 to March 20) – The World: Achievement, integration, triumph, reaching a goal

Spring 2023 (March 21 to June 20) – 9 Cups: Wish fulfillment, satisfaction, pleasure

Summer 2023 (June 21 to Sept 20) – 10 Swords: Final ending of a difficult situation; a new future with fewer conflicts can begin

Fall 2023 (Sept 21 to Dec 20) – 7 Swords: Use guile, tact, diplomacy, and wit to handle challenges (no bullying)

II. The Mayan Oracle
