If you endeavor to walk each month, each day, each moment in embodied prayer and devotion, you are a kindred spirit and this exploration is for you. May we have full-system, expansive experiences this year. Ase. Awei. Anjankatu. Jajom. - M'Press Tarot & Ting
The past few years have been journey, step by step. In 2019 this offering took the form of monthly forecasts so we could prepare ourselves for what lay ahead. In 2020 we broke our divinatory forecasts down even further, bringing in weekly focusing so we could increase our presence day to day. We were able to see how the "now" fit into overall themes both for the year and the month. 2021 took off those training wheels and invited us to delve thematically deeper in the presence of spirit and tease out our cosmic consciousness with more targeted astrological consideration. We still sat with a monthly forecasted anchoring but were blessed with the ability to connect that knowledge with the wisdom of lunar cycles.
The past three years brought compounding iterations of intentionally bringing spirit into our lives. In 2022, this collective year of balance in our new and rising normal, we endeavor not to be in the presence of spirit , but to EMBODY the presence of Spirit, that spark seeded within.

Previously, this divinatory forecasting was conducted using oracle cards rooted in Indigenous thought; a shamanic approach to reconciling with Spirit while simultaneously embracing and challenging our humanity. This year we'll be engaging ancient virtues through the ecstatic concepts and embodiment of the Kabbalah (via Tarot of the Moors) and Sufi meditations (via The Sufi Book of Life)
If you're joining us for the first time this year, don't sweat! You're exactly where you're meant to be and all the monthly forecasts since Fall 2019 are available for public review and reflection in the M'Press Tarot & Ting Divine Garden. For our convenience I've also post a quick review of 2021 on our blog here and here.
2022 is a 6 year. 6 is about allll the things. Fine-tuning your tings so they can stand alone AND fit together. When things work together for good with minimal effort, that's how you know you've successfully tapped into your divine flow, your organic balance. This year we prioritize the harmonization of mind, body, soul, self, tribe, and collective.
As a collective 6 year, we would be wise to focus on balancing our inner and outer existences, the individual with the collective. Remember the layers! Self, Family/Tribe, Neighborhood/Community, Greater Collective.
Organic balance emerges from who you are in all dimensions - The Mayan Oracle, Ariel Spilsbury and Michael Bryner
This is a fluid, reflective, and responsive balance. It is the first key step to true embodiment. The "who am I" of it all. Not in parts, but as a whole Self.
This year for a deeper more expansive anchoring I will be using Tarot of the Moors and Sufi Pathways. Tarot of the Moors includes astrological, elemental, Hebrew, and Kabbalist references which pair beautifully with Sufi theory and practice to provide anchors that have stood the tests of thousands of years and provide seamless connection points for the harmonious involvement of the mind, body, and soul.
May we have full-system, expansive experiences this year. Ase. Awei. Anjankatu. Jajom.

DON'T RUN! lol. All things are blessings. This does NOT mean 2022 will be terrible. The card literally says "You are not sleeping due to worry or anxiety, relief comes when you hear good news and let go of suspicion."
