Christmas means different things to different people and many people prefer to celebrate Kwanza, Hanukkah or Yule… Then there are the grinches out there who won’t celebrate at all… But let’s not focus on our differences here, because the grinches won’t be reading this anyway, and the Christmas Presence Tarot spread I created for you to use during these last few days of the year has been created in the pure Spirit of the Season, bursting at the seams with magic, much like Santa’s sack.
This Yuletide Tarot spread is guaranteed to bring you good cheer and can also be used to manifest a wish for the New Year. You can do it any time between the first of Advent and the Solstice.
This is a time for sharing, caring, and counting our blessings. It is a time to (‘Finally!,’ some exclaim) wave goodbye to the struggles of the past year… It is a time for integrating lessons of the year gone and for sowing seeds for the year ahead, as well as for understanding the messages of our dreams, which often wax prophetic this time of the year… More than anything, it is a time for celebrating the love we all share… and that, my friends, is where the magic and true Spirit of Christmas is found…
Connect with the Magic!
It is my most heartfelt wish that doing a reading with the Christmas Presence Tarot Spread will act as a catalyst for connecting with the magic of the Christmas Spirit if you are not already hooked up… Even if you don’t read the Tarot cards, working with the questions for each of the spread positions in your journal will begin increasing the Light in your life… Let’s get started!
The Christmas Presence Tarot Spread
This is what I call a messy spread, i.e. how the cards are laid out doesn’t matter as much as using each card to carefully reflect on the question asked. If you like, you can do this spread over a few days and perhaps even pull just one card a day. If you want to share your cards/thoughts from doing this spread on Instagram or Tsu, please use the hashtag #christmaspresencetarot and don’t forget to tag me (@tarotize)
1*** How can I be fully present to the Miracle of the Season?
2*** What does the Darkness teach me?
3*** What do I need to pay attention to in my dreams (for the winter solstice night)?
4***What do I need to leave behind as I close the door on the old year?
5*** What is my main gift to the world this Season?
6*** How can I be fully present to the Rebirth of the Light/Sun/Son?
7*** How can I magnify the Light in my own life in the New Year? Pull three cards here. Choose the cards that speak to you the most and create a spell/affirmation to go with it.
8*** What do I need to surrender in the New Year?
9*** How can I magnify the Light in the life of others next year? Pull 1-3 cards.
10*** What is the main gift/blessing the New Year will bring for me personally?
Before the New Year, I will publish a Zodiac Tarot spread that you can use to look in detail at all the different areas of your life and find out what you can expect in the year ahead. The Zodiac Tarot spread is ideal for New Year’s Eve, which is a traditional day for divining. I have fond memories of my grandmother doing molybdomancy (molten lead divination) with me and my sister on New Year’s Eve.
