I’ve had enough of 2020. I am so grateful for all of the blessings that this year brought, but I’m done. So long and thanks for all the fish. Go with God but go. 2020, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
After this particularly challenging year, when most of us are depleted and running on fumes, it may not be so easy or natural to look to the future with wild enthusiasm and optimism.
So, let’s be kind to ourselves. Let’s give ourselves some space and time to dream a little, muse a little, explore the energy of the months ahead and see what sparks some gentle inspiration.
Here is a Tarot spread that I am using for myself, to realign with my purpose and goals, and to raise my energy as we go into 2021. Give it a try and see how it speaks to you.
Just a few words before you dive in.
The first position in the spread answers the question, “How do I want to feel in 2021?”. I phrased the question in this way for a reason. I didn’t ask what you want to do, or what you want to achieve, or where you want to be, because I wanted to take things back to the core, to the real heart of the question. It all comes down to how we want to feel, or how we think we’ll feel when we achieve that goal or milestone or victory. That’s why we do anything, how we believe it will make us feel.
I want you to actively look through your deck, and choose the card that most closely expresses that feeling.
The cards #2 & #3 show helpers and challenges to achieving the feeling of Card #1. These may be internal forces, or external. Or both. Be open to multiple levels to the messages you receive from these cards.
Cards #4 & #5 bring in some empowering energy.
Rather than hoping for all clear skies and rainbows in 2021, trust that you have the resources you need to navigate the challenges that will come your way. Card #4 will help you to recognize them.
Card #5 asks you to identify a concrete action that you can take today, or tomorrow, or on the first day of the year, to start your momentum rolling. DO IT. This isn’t just an intellectual exercise, you are going to activate the reading with this action.
Cards #6, #7, #8 & #9 give you an idea of the energy of the months and seasons ahead, and provide information that will be helpful for planning, and at the time when they manifest.
Finally, card #10 is a message from the universe to you, something to inspire you through out 2021. Don’t be dismayed if you don’t like the card that appears here. Even if the message isn’t the one you wanted, it is the most helpful, the one you need.
The cards never fail to inspire me, make me laugh, and remind me of the magic of this world that is all around us. Reading the cards is a ritual, and a beautiful way to start the New Year.
Wishing you a magnificent year ahead!
