Upcoming Year Tarot Spread
Reading the Upcoming Year Tarot Spread
Shuffle your cards while focusing your energy purely on the year that lies ahead. If you wish to draw your cards one by one, i.e shuffle and draw one month at a time or lay them out in a consecutive flow, that remains your choice. However, remaining focused while shuffling remains your top priority. 🙂
When your cards are drawn and you have ascertained the their individual meanings, then take a look at how they correlate with each other. If you really feel stumped by a ‘bad month’, feel free to draw a clarifying card for that position, it may just add some light.
However, remember that there aren’t really ‘bad’ cards in the Tarot. So even if you draw the Tower for a month, that may just mean that there will be unexpected transitions. However, what is important within that interpretation is with every transition comes a valuable opportunity.
Overall Theme Card of the Upcoming Year.
The overall theme of the year is then your guidance card as to how to approach the upcoming year. Here again, you can draw a clarifying card to assist you if you so wish as per the above photograph.
Using Shadow cards
If you wish to use shadow cards, then preferably shuffle your cards, draw your card and then draw a shadow card from the bottom of the pile before continuing to the next month.
