I've made a spread that you can do New Year's reading with. I use 7 different decks for this, but of course you can go for less or just 1. I feel the different decks do add more depth to the reading though..*
The theme is ALWAYS a Mayor Arcana card, the other Tarot cards used always minors.
You may not have all the decks I've used, intuit which deck is best suited to replace!
I've done 4 readings with it so far, and it seems to work like a charm!* If you can't work out what 1 card is trying to tell you, just continue the reading, because there are connections between certain cards and while continuing, you will get clarification and start to see the general theme for the reading for that particular person.*
This is the spread:
1 Theme –*Mayor Arcana 2 What works against the theme –*Tarot minor 3 What helps & stimulates the theme –*Tarot minor 4 What you got to leave behind in 2014 –*Lenormand 5 What 2015 will bring when you do leave that behind –*Lenormand 6 Most important lesson at this moment –*Ascended Masters - D. Virtue 7 Blind Spot regarding that lesson –*Ascended Masters - D. Virtue 8 Love/Relationship in 2015 –*Romance Angels 9 Work/Money in 2015 –*Lenormand 10 What is healing for you –*The Secret Language of Colour Cards by Inna Segal 11 Where you are now in your development –*Enchanted Map C. Baron-Reid 12 Advice for 2015 (general) –*Enchanted Map C. Baron-Reid 13 Spiritual development advice for 2015 –*Angel Therapy by D. Virtue
THE IDEA is that there is an arc that spans the New Year (in this case 2015). The arc starts at the end of 2014 and ends at the end of the New Year.
The cards that are opposite each other are often related, but you'll find that other cards are connected as well --> i.e. nr 3 "what enhances the theme" and nr 12 "Advice for 2015". Because some*seem*similar, I thought of removing some, but I find this way they do give far more in depth info. Esp when reading for someone you don't know, this can be very helpful in getting an accurate reading!
