In order to kick my year off right, spiritually, I took a cue from my friend Kaye and laid out a “Year in Preview” spread for 2016. Each month got one card, then three cards at the bottom for an overall look at the upcoming year, and one final card for something to watch out for.
Most of the months made sense, but February, May, and July needed some additional explanations.
- January: Vision
- February: Intuition, Air, Water, Death
- March: Home
- April: Wisdom
- May: Failure, Obfuscate, Perseverance, Sol
- June: Healing
- July: Balance
- August: Message, Travel, Voice, Guide
- September: Permanence
- October: Gift
- November: Transformation
- December: Bond
- 2016 Overall: Achievement, Growth, Self
- Beware: Earth
My plan right now is to write in my journal about what I expect each card will mean to the month on the first day and then reflect on how it actually applied on the last day, as well as revisit the spread at the end of the year.
The “overall” section of the spread seems pretty promising, given that this will be a year of chugging through school and setting things up for my eventual graduation and future plans.
I’ll say, too, that I’m not super-familiar with these cards and their meanings just yet. If anyone has some insight into any of these and would like to share, I’d love to hear it!
