September for me will always mean the end of summer and time to go back to school. Even though it is still beautiful and summery outside right now, I have already shifted into a place of stationery heaven, dreaming about acquiring all kinds of exciting paper products and writing implements. What can be more exciting than a blank notebook, waiting to be filled?
I was a huge nerd and teacher’s pet as a student. I distinctly remember asking my grade three teacher for homework. She told me to go home and play outside, in the nicest way possible.
When you’re a full time student, each year is like a new life. New teachers, new friends, new classes, new location…all that newness brings nervous anxiety and also the euphoria of discovery and learning.
So, thinking about back to school and all it means to us, how deeply it is ingrained in us, I created these two Tarot spreads to help navigate this bittersweet time of year. The first one is useful for everyone, the second is geared towards kids of all ages who are actually heading back to school in the next few days.
The Perpetual Student Tarot Spread
Are you feeling the urge to try something new? To more fully develop your talents? To pick up something that you left behind years ago? This spread can help you to explore options and directions that will re-ignite your creativity and passion for learning:
(Really) Heading Back to School Tarot Spread
Do you have a child who is (reluctantly) heading back to school? Doing this spread together may help your child to express any worries they have about going back to class, and perhaps inspire a feeling of excitement and possibility for the year ahead:
September is such a lovely time of year…when we drift away from the ease and heat of summer, and turn our minds to new beginnings, preparation for cold days ahead, starting to dream of what we want to achieve in the coming year…honor summer, don’t rush it away, but allow yourself to get excited about the possibilities that Autumn brings. We are all perpetual students, isn’t it wonderful that there is always something new to learn! Tarot teacher signing off, going to soak up some sun and then hit the books.
