This is the time of the year when we can truly look at the previous year and take account of what has happened, the trials and tribulations we endured, the blessings and joyful moments we had, the goals we reached, big and small. In other words, to integrate life’s up and downs and to look with hope in the year ahead 🙂
At the beginning of each year, traditionally, we make a list of New Year’s resolutions which most of the time will be gone by the end of January if not before.
Personally, I like to look at the year ahead and to have projects and goals I would like to achieve or more generally, a direction I would like to focus on.
With that in mind, I created this fun spread which can be used as a general spread, or for more specific areas of life such as family, love, career, spirituality, creativity etc..
Card 1 : Main lesson of last year
That which was more challenging to integrate, what you needed to focus on most of the time.
Card 2 : What I need to get rid of
What you need to let go of on the shore of 2017 and not to carry any more.
Card 3 : How to let go of what no longer serves me?
What has become a burden and practical steps to let it all go.
This card is significant as it is a little something from the universe to help you unburden yourself.
Card 4 : New Year’s gift to me
The gift/blessings/energies that the Universe (or deity you believe in) wants you to be equipped with for the new year.
Card 5 : Main focus of the year
What will be your main direction/intent for the upcoming year. Which area of life is in need of TLC.
Card 6 : What I must do this year
Here there is a sense of duty and urgency with this card. What would be the pillar for your goals/expectations to be achieved.
Card 7 : Goals to achieve this year
What would be a great focus of intention laying the foundation for the future that could spread further than 2018.
Card 8 : Advice from the universe for this year
This card is significant as it is linked with card 4, so pay attention to both to see if they complement each other or seem in opposition. If in opposition, it will mean that challenges will be keenly felt, which sometimes is needed in order to achieve.
Card 9 : Main energy of the year.
With this card you will be able to feel intuitively what the year will bring 🙂
Have fun using this spread, and please let me know how it worked for you.
I did it for 2018 and it was absolutely spot on, a bit scary actually.
So cannot wait to do it after 1st January 🙂
Bonne Annee – Happy New Year 🙂
