A New Year’s Tarot Spread!

Happy New Year! Every year I sit quietly and create a Tarot spread to bring more clarity to my year. 2019 heralds a number “3” year (2+0+1+9=12/1+2=3) and the potential for collaboration flowing between my spiritual and mundane nature to create a third (3) product that is the manifestation of what I wish to birth this year.

This tarot spread makes use of the principles of the Hermetic Tree of Life. However, you do not need to be versed in Qabalistic study to use this spread. Honoring the 12 month cycles of a year, the spread uses 12 cards in draw.

How To:
Set the mood and find a quiet space in which to lay out your spread. I like to light a white pillar candle, lay my cards out on a velvety purple or blue cloth and usually have a quartz, amethyst or celestite crystal on the cloth.

Take a moment to take in the sacred space you have created in offering to divining your year. Breathe into the beauty of what you have created. And, formulate the intention of what you wish to manifest this year.

Take your cards in hand and savor their feel, their weight and their gifts in providing clarity. Pour your energy and intention into the deck and then proceed in whatever manner you are accustomed in doing a reading.

The Layout:
Beginning with Card 1, lay each card in turn-Face Down-through Card 12. When they have all been readied, turn each over, one at a time, revealing the information acquired. Remember, there is no need to rush. Take time to savor and think on each of the cards.

When you have read through all of the cards, close your eyes for a few minutes, open and then look at the spread in its entirety. You will see many connective pieces and cards that are supportive of each other, regardless of their numerical order. Just left the information and connections you see flow.

Lastly, be sure to take a picture or journal the cards you’ve selected and their placement. You will want to return to this spread throughout the year. You may also relay the cards at any time during the year. My recommendation, however, would be to keep Cards 11 and 12 as the original selected and only redraw Cards 1-10. You will be surprised by the new connections made, and the stability of your Potential (Card 11) and your Accomplishments (Card 12).

Cards 1 – 10 provide the tools for a successful year and creating the foundations for what you desire to make manifest in your life this year. You could consider Cards 11 and 12 as the summary of your year’s gift of creation and both the potential held and the accomplishments to be gained. I don’t use reversals, but by all means if you are used to reading in that way, please do so.

Card 1:           What are the gifts of my body?

Card 2:           What are my illusions?

Card 3:           What inspires me?

Card 4:           What do I desire?

Card 5:           What is my strength?

Card 6:           What must I cut away?

Card 7:           Where must I heal?

Card 8:           How will I birth my creation?

Card 9:           What will seed my creation?

Card 10:         What is the gift of my Higher Self?

 

Card 11:        What is my potential?

Card 12:        What is my accomplishment?

Blessings on this New Year. May your creativity flow… Robin

Happy Solstice Everyone! My story is complete and time to enter into the woods as we await Solstice Day.

Catch up on 19-Days of Illuminated Darkness here….https://awitchssacredjourney.com/19-days-of-illuminated-darknessindex/

A Witch's Sacred Journey

Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice! My story is complete and Part Two is ready to take you into the woods…

Part Two:

….Flickering light shone through the trees and the smell of fragrant wood burning wafted through the air…..

Lily walked slowly, the snow crunching under foot. She hoped not to frighten away the woodland creatures and did not want to make her presence known to whoever may be responsible for the lights ahead. As she walked along the path that she knew would lead her to where she could see the light, she noticed that the flickering of light seemed to be pulsing in resonance to her breath. Excited by this thought, she began to breathe more rapidly, and with each inhalation and exhalation the light flickered matching its rhythm.

A Witch's Sacred Journey

Just to set the mood and take you into the snowy woods, please enjoy a Solstice Story in Two Parts…

Part One

Lily pulled on her warmest coat and snow boots, ready for an adventure outside. Snow had been falling for several hours and she loved the quiet that descended when the ground was blanketed in fluffy white snow. Even the coziness and warmth of her cottage could not entice her to stay inside and miss the chance of walking at sunset through the woods that bordered her home.

She wrapped a wool scarf snuggly around her neck and pulled on the winter cap that she had just finished knitting and had been hoping for a chance to wear it sooner rather than later. Impatient to leave, she tugged at her mittens and took one quick glance at the dimly lit room and spun back around to push the wooden…

19-Days of Illuminated Darkness-Bonus Post #2…
Please enjoy a poem and audio pathworking for Day Twelve….

A Witch's Sacred Journey


If you’ve been counting down, we are on Day Twelve of 19-Days of Illuminated Darkness. Today’s offering is an audio pathworking entitled A Point of Clarity. In keeping with this theme, please enjoy the poem below….

Snow silently fell
As the wheel it
Turned round.

Darkness cycled its course
The Light lay at hand
Brilliant flames of blue lept
High from sacred inner domain.

Triple flames rise high
And Mother’s sight offers
The solace of quickening spark.
Bring forth the healing Light
Nurture and fiercely protect
The ember that burns brightly.

Gentle bud and tender leaf
Reach high towards
Sun lit sky.
Balance and rest
Bring greenery to life.

Desire flows hotly and
Urges pushes us on.
Light weaves its magnetic
Spell of attraction
Drawing us towards
Lovers sun-kissed embrace.

Solstice light burns
Full and bright.
Apex of potential
Achieved and
Time for turning within
Now close at…

Seeking our Animal Allies

As we build in our anticipation for welcoming the Light of the Solstice, an opportunity to connect to those energies and beings that stand ready to support our work shines in the remnants of the darkened forest, seas and air.

I would like to share with you a pathworking written a few years ago and one that I have had requested many times. Join me on a journey through the gates of the elemental realms and the radiance of the animal guides held within each awaiting your call of resonance.

I like to explore these gifts at this time of the year and use it as a time to offer up gratitude for those animal guides that remain with me and those who are ready to aid and assist as I step in the Solstice Light of a soon to be New Year. Enjoy!
