James Ricklef did a great Blog post about picking a card to represent the New Year. I had been thinking on this same line but couldn’t come up with anything near as thorough as James! Please see his article at: http://jamesricklef.wordpress.com/2010/12/27/tarot-new-year/
After reading this, I spent some time thinking about where I am right now and of course, where I want to be going in 2011.
“…the way to keep your resolutions is to deal with them one day at a time” I agree. It also came to mind that this could be “Count your Blessings”; (in my case) this resonates strongly.
Unemployment is at an all time high, I still have my job and I need to be grateful for this each and every day.
James used his own Deck “Tarot of the Masters” for the images.
This image seems to depict how I feel perfectly.

James Ricklef is an inspiration to me in many ways; his writing is often just what I need at just the right time
James also has a Website that has tons of information. My favorite is the “Monthly Article” in which James shares excerpts from his upcoming book that deals with Tarot on your Spiritual Journey. http://www.jamesricklef.com/index.html
I don’t think James Ricklef gets near the recognition he deserves for all of his contributions to the world of Tarot. I was once in an online class with James-he probably doesn’t remember this-and I was in awe of his knowledge and his ability to communicate on a level that the “beginner” could understand. I can’t say enough nice things about someone like James! So! Go on over to his Blog and Website. He has much to offer!
