This spread is a predictive spread that is very commonly used as a bit of a preview of the year ahead. The question asked for each of these positions is…
Tarot Card: The theme of the month in question,
Oracle Card: What to focus on for the month in question, and
Affirmation Card: A ray of hope to hold onto for the month in question.
This reading is simply a brief exploration of the current trajectory of my path and energy for the year ahead. Like all predictive readings, nothing here is written in stone, it’s more of a look ahead just to have an idea of what to anticipate and what to work at avoiding.
As an experiment, I have decided to do my year ahead reading a little differently this year. In January I pulled cards for the first six months of the year. Today, I am revisiting the spread to pull cards for the last six months of the year, three of those months I will then interpret now, while the last three months of the year I will interpret at the beginning of October. I feel that this might help in ensuring a more accurate reading for the second half of the year.
2021’s Theme – Justice – This card is calculated through mathematics, and is not drawn randomly. My card for 2021 is the Justice card, with the theme of having to acknowledge that what you put out into the world and what you do in your life reflects back to you in turn. Good begets good, bad begets bad. Following that inner moral compass will be especially important this year and possible a bit of a challenge.
I never wrote down my interpretations of this particular reading, but I want to get it up and posted in case I want to look back on it later.
