From a ‘majors’ view, many (and I would include myself in this group – see my previous post) see 2010 as the year of the Empress. She represents fertility and abundance; she is the Wise Woman and Mother. The Empress is passionate and feels deeply. She is the personification of the ‘outward yin’. Not a bad outlook for 2010. For more information on the Empress, see my March 14 and March 21, 2009 posts.

In keeping with White Sage tradition :), let’s look at the upcoming year from a ‘minors’ perspective. From the vantage point of the minors, 2010 is about the symbolism of threes (2010 à 2+0+1+0=3). In numerology, threes introduce a new element to twos. Twos are about balance, threes add something new. Pythagoras called three “the One and the Many”, recognizing both the expression of the one and the two. Consider the prevalence of the three in the following: mind, body, spirit; beginning, middle, ending; the Holy Trinity; the family.  Three can represent either cooperation or friction.  Think of a conversation: it usually flows smoothly when two people are involved. The introduction of a third can significantly enhance the experience or derail it.

When new elements are introduced into your life in 2010, how will you deal with them? Will they derail you? Or will you integrate the ‘third’ and create a new experience? What will underlay your decisions, cooperation or friction?

On a personal note, may 2010 bring you balance, abundance and an air of acceptance and cooperation.




  1. This is great! It actually goes along with the overwheming “theme” I found when I did my yearly tarotscopes. All of the things you mentioned above came up repeatedly in my forecasts. Thank you for this!

    1. Hi Mindy,

      Your post has got me thinking about a yearly overview for the our society. Rachel Pollack asks some big questions of the Tarot in her book (and one of my all-time favorites) “The Forest of Souls”. I think I’m going to follow suit by using the 20-card “New Year Spread” with the world as the querent. We actually talked about this a little at our Tarot Talk this past week. And, I love the word “tarotscopes”.
