This well loved book has been my guide for 20 years. The cover is no longer attached, pages are falling out. It’s dog-eared and dirty from my hands flipping pages thousands of times.
Today, I broke down and ordered a new one for the next 20 years. But I’m still keeping this one.
Every new year’s eve I take time to meditate on what’s passed, and where I want to go. Then I shuffle and draw 10 cards following the Whole Person Spread developed by Angeles Arrien as described in the book. It’s one of my best tools for letting intuition do long term planning for personal growth.
Some years look scary; others glorious. But as I check back in over the ensuing months when I’m in need of big picture direction, I see how the lessons and opportunities I laid out before me have come to fruition.
I’m just about to read my 2020 spread and consider how things played out in all the aspects of life covered in my cards. I did a sneak peak reminder just a few weeks ago to check the number 10 card position. This one portends the natural expression of what wants to come through, or what needs to be released
It’s the Nine of Wands-Strength.
I wrote on my list of cards I keep tucked in my monthly planner: “A completion number. Trust my inner and outer strength.”
Given the year we’ve just had, I think I nailed it.
I can’t wait to see what’s next.
