Wheel of Fortune for New Year’s

A couple weeks ago I opened a fortuneless fortune cookie.

At first I thought it was probably considered a “bad omen”, but after looking it up online, it’s apparently the opposite.
Getting a fortuneless fortune cookie is supposed to be good luck because you are “owed a fortune” and something good is supposed to happen to you.

Keeping the “Fortune” theme in mind, I did a New Year’s Eve card reading yesterday.
Following a tarot spread from my Wild Unknown guidebook, I switched things up and used my old Madame Endora Fortune Cards instead.
I’m doing this card reading blog differently than usual; typically I give my thoughts and interpretations on all my results. But this time, I don’t want to. I don’t want to speculate, I don’t want to overthink, I just want to let the answers come in time.
There’s a lot of nice messages in this spread, and there’s a couple (seemingly) negative ones in here too. And that’s all I care to know right now.
I’ve been doing better lately and feeling much more positive. The weight in my chest has even lifted and lightened.
Not because of a hollow Chinese cookie, though the surprising folklore did add a touch.
My spiritual faith and connection to witchcraft are growing, and that growth brings more inner peace, relief and strengthening beliefs for me. It’s a sense of magick in the air, and more hope and acceptance in my heart.
I don’t want to talk too much about it at this current time, I just want to keep experiencing this feeling and see what’s going to happen.

Happy New Year.
