Happy New Year! A Tarot Spread Seeking Harmony….

Happy New Year! Every year I sit quietly and create a Tarot spread to bring more clarity to my year. 2022 heralds a number “6” year (2+0+2+2=6/) and the potential for bringing more harmony into our lives. We certainly can use harmony as we remain in the grips of COVID and its variants. The harmony that we seek is that which comes from a space of calm and serenity that we are able to cultivate within ourselves.

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 look around 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 a harmonious expression of your endeavors throughout the year. 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 claim the harmony I seek?

Card 9:           What will support greater harmony in my life?

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

Card 11:        What is my potential?

Card 12:        How will I sustain and continue to grow a harmonious way of being?

Blessings on this New Year. May serenity and clarity flow… Robin
