Zodiac Spread – Forecasting into 2013


What’s the next year hold in store?

The title of this post is your first clue, I expect to be around December 22, 2012. Ha!

Being all about the free will, I don’t generally do a lot of heavy forecasting Tarot work. What’s the point of picking up the cards if you have no power to alter your course? I pride myself on helping people find their OWN power, not handing out fate-heavy prognostications from on high. Not my gig.

But I still see the value in peeking ahead–maybe for birthdays or the coming year, or during a demanding period in general–because it’s an opportunity to prepare to make the most of what you’ve got on offer from the universe. It’s like planning for a trip by penciling in the itinerary. It’s preparation to make the most of the experience.

I really like the Zodiac spread for general look-aheads, mainly because it covers a whole lot of ground.

 Simple Zodiac Tarot Spread

There are much more complicated versions, but I like to focus on the message instead of flourishes.  To do a basic Zodiac spread, pull a card for each of the 12 houses around the wheel, and read the card in the context of the Astrological house.  I always like to add a “take home” card as overview to identify a primary focus and pull it all together. That’s it!

Well, and the interpretation, of course. That’s sometimes the tricky part… I especially think it would be interesting to compare with your natal chart to see how your energy and the forecast compares.

I don’t do the Zodiac readings on a routine basis, because most of my folks have specific concerns they want to address. But I thought they would be a nice addition for the Holidays.

So, through January, I’m offering a Holiday Peek Ahead: Zodiac Tarot Spread, covering each of the 12 houses via email so you can review it over the year to come. Like all my email readings, I’ll send pictures of your cards. Let me know if there’s a special deck from the Everyday Tarot column you’d like to see. I’ll accommodate you if I can.

:present: As my gift to you, I’ll include a natal chart astrology report to compare with your reading.

Ho ho ho! And in keeping with the holiday spirit, I’d also like this little look ahead to stay affordable. So I’m charging $40 for the whole shebang.

These will only be available through January (and maybe never again at this price).

  1. “Nine house, higher learning, philosophy and preaching: you won’t be completely leaving behind the sort of faith you were raised with, the belief system of your family. Yes, there things about it you’re not in love with. But I think you’re going to be reworking it into something different. That fits you. Specifically, many of the values fit you even if the explanation for those values don’t. So take what’s worthwhile for you and create your own story around that.”

    Thank you. I really did need to be reminded that I don’t have to throw the baby out with the bath water.

    Christmas is a good time to reflect on the things we do value.

    A very Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    1. Thank you, Mist. I’m SO glad you are finding it useful!

      I have really enjoyed doing these. They are quite a bit different than my usual readings, so it’s a fun change of pace. Usually my work is focused on a particular area or two of someone’s life, whatever prompts them to get a reading.

      I find I look these differently, because everything is in a bigger context of the whole wheel, all the houses are covered and for a particular time span, so you get a sense of where the work of the coming year fits in to the larger picture, you know? I think it adds a lot of perspective overall.

      In fact, even though I seldom read for myself, I do think I’m going to do one of these for myself and save it just as if it were for somebody else…ha!

  2. Sounds like a very good idea to do one for yourself. I really like the bigger picture because it keeps the stumbling blocks in perspective as the year goes by.
