Wheel of the Year Tarot Spread

queen of cups deviant artAs 2014 comes to a close, it’s time to begin looking ahead. What will 2015 hold for you? Doing a Wheel of the Year or Zodiac Spread can help you understand what might be coming up, what you need to look out for, and where you want to focus your efforts in the coming year.

This is the Queen of Cups based on RWS Tarot by an artist on Deviant Art known as vileone.

The Wheel of the year is one of my favorite spreads, and I like to do it sometime between Yule and the first week of the New Year.

I find this more enlightening than sitting down and make resolutions, which most people don’t keep anyway. This spread covers what will happen overall for the next year, and gives you a card for each month that will be the focus for that period of time.

The Year Spread is dealt out like the face of a clock. Place one card in the center first. This is your overall card for the year. Then place a card where each number would be on a clock. This is your card for that month. One is January, two is February, etc.

I like to place mine all face-down first, and then turn them over one at a time, beginning with the card in the middle. Some people like to turn everything over at once and then look for patterns.

If your year spread doesn’t turn out the way you want, remember, the Tarot is only showing you the most likely outcome  based on where you are in your life right now. If you choose to make new decisions, your cards will change in the future. The further you get out in the year, the more likely things will change because of the decisions you make.

This is the true power of Tarot – the ability to direct your life and choose a new future based on the information it has revealed. One of my favorite ways to do this is to choose another card for each month while asking the Tarot what I can do about the first card.

If I like the card, I might ask, “What do I need to do to ensure that this is the outcome I get?” or “What do I need to do to make this even more positive?”

If I don’t like that particular card, I ask the Tarot, “How can I make this month more positive?” or “What do I need to create a more positive outcome?”

These questions will give you more insight and help you put your life on the path that you choose so you can have the best year ever!

Do your own Wheel of the Year Spread, and let me know how it turns out. I’d love to hear about it!

Looking at Your Day

Queen of Pentacles, Steampunk Tarot, Amethyst, Barbara MooreMany people don’t know this, but I often pull a few cards each morning to see how my day is going. Today I drew the following from the Steampunk Tarot by Barbara Moore.

Mind – Queen of Pentacles, Reversed. Still worrying about money? Check. Being in business for yourself can be a bumpy road, and even when you have great plans in place you may worry from time to time. What if this product doesn’t sell? What if this launch doesn’t go well? Do I really have enough people on my list?

Add to that looking to move, and an estimated extra $13,000 needed for repairs and other things…and, well, that could make anyone’s head spin. Of course, when you are worried about money, where it’s coming from, and where it’s going, you’re blocking your natural abundance. Time to turn this Queen right-side-up, where she belongs.

Body – 3 of Wands.

I have many different choices when it comes to what to do each day. Whether or not to eat right, exercise, meditate, or sit at my desk and work, work, work, all day long.

We all have things that make us healthy and support our bodies. These are represented by the 3 lights in the card.

However, many of us are still looking outside for more answers, or answers that we think will somehow be “better.”

Rather than spending all of your time and energy searching out there, it’s time to look at what you already know.

Rest in the assuredness that your current wisdom is enough.

Spirit – 8 of Swords Reversed.

This card indicates that I have felt tied up for some time, at least as far as my spiritual life goes. These self-imposed chains are slowly shifting away, and pretty soon I will be free.

I have had a rough time with religion and spirituality throughout my life, but recently have started feeling more at peace with who and where I am.

This can have great impact on your business. If you are struggling spiritually, people will feel “off” around you, and often won’t invest with you even if you offer great products and services.

My new mentor Jenn August has a fabulous saying, “Energy before effort.” The past week or so I’ve noticed just how right she is. Once again I have people seeking me out and total strangers coming up to talk to me just because they can tell that I am happy.

Let your swords and worries fall away, and you will see your business increase.

Try your own Mind, Body, Spirit Spread today. It’s really quick, and you can do it in just 2 or 3 minutes. I’d love to hear about it!
