Each month I begin with a month ahead spread. The spread itself I found on my RWS phone app of all places. Five cards: four to mark each week of the month, and then one theme card. It became a good "go-to" spread when I was doing reading for people who didn't have a specific question, but just wanted a general outlook for the month, or the next 4 weeks.
Eventually this became my own practice for a few reasons. First, it really did give me a pretty good outlook for the month. Second, it just helped me connect with the cards more. Relating the card meanings back to my day to day life only further deepened their meanings to me. It became personal, spiritual, it made me stay present so I could really and truly get how each card was showing up for me day to day, week to week, and then month to month. It also became apparent that it was vitally important for continuing my Tarot education. Paternicity people! Paternicity! Finally it was a chance for me to reflect through writing during the course of the month. It started to become so clear the connections not only in my own life, but in the people around me, and even at times world events.
Now, for card readers or anyone who practices a form of divination this will not seem unique that such connections would be made, and yet I can't help but be fascinated with it like a little kid every. single. time. I feel as though there is always more to learn or write about when it comes to Tarot and so I thought why not put my thoughts here, on this blog portion of the web site I'm obviously not using and needed to evolve.
And so I realized this Citrine Compass's truer north.
No coincidence that my soul sister contacted me as I'm writing to let me know North actually changed a little today on this New Moon Aquarius.
"North is no longer North, " she said.
And so it is.
These are my musings and experiences with Tarot and the month ahead.
Just a girl and her cards.
