Autumn Tarot & Totem Spread

THE BASKET & THE SICKLE

Fall is a season of harvest and temptation – so here is something made for Autumn that you may find tempting! THE BASKET & THE SICKLE spread.
I developed this spread several years ago to specifically help people trace what energies would be arising in their lives during this season. It proved to be an accurate and very meaningful spread. The Fall season usually holds a lot of action, social events, labor and feeling your soul enriched (or afflicted) by the holiday season.
THE BASKET & THE SICKLE
The cards in the BASKET tell what you’re likely to harvest this Autumn (gifts, fruits of productivity, positive or negative effects of actions) – having to do with what you have created. This is the Civilized side of Autumn – you understand how these things come about even if you don’t like some of them.The cards that form the SICKLE reveal the Wild side of Autumn – how the strange and the mysterious makes entrance into your life in forms such as unexpected events, sudden changes of or bursts of emotion, chaos, mysticism, surprises both pleasant and unpleasant.The final two cards form a BRIDGE of meaning that shows how the BASKET and the SICKLE influence each other.

GUIDE TO CARD LAYOUT AND MEANINGS

BASKET
Card 1 (Animal Guide card) is a personal gift or quality you’ve developed that helps you in the situations and events in your Basket
Cards 2 – 5 (Tarot) tell of people, situations, and changes coming up for you during Autumn. These have grown out of your choices and actions and non-actions and ‘make sense’ to you.
Cards 6 and 7 (Tarot) suggest how you can / will handle, carry and deal with what is in the Basket
Card 8 (Animal) reveals the quality that most helps you “get a grip” on what you are harvesting.
SICKLE
Card 9 (Animal) points to something about yourself that is at the root of your Wild experiences this Autumn. These are both inward and outward Wild experiences.
Card 10 – 14 (Tarot) signify how wildness, chaos, the unexpected and “fate” intersect with you this Autumn
Card 15 (Animal) is a new quality that emerges in you as a result of these encounters with the wild.
BRIDGE
Card 16 and Card 17 (Animal and Tarot) indicate how you can harmonize, co-ordinate or bridge between your Wild and your Civilized selves this season.

SPRING 2018

Phone, on-line and in person readings can be had in Tucson from Tuesday 3/20 (date of Vernal Equinox)  through Monday 3/26 especially to tune into the Fire, Warmth and Growth of this season.
The Fire of Spring reading is recommended as a 45 minute session but can be slimmed down to a half hour if desired.

The Fire of Spring.

This reading yields guidance about using the Fire element within you in an intentional, positive way – your creativity, passion, enthusiasm, confidence, desire for change and physical vitality. This may also concern how you handle your own ambition, aggression and/or anger. This reading is helpful for a general outlook or focused on a specific change or project.(I used it the first time at a Housewarming and it was a good fit.)
The Spring Fire Within is designed like a hearth or bonfire you would build for warmth (see illustration above). Tarot cards are outlined in blue, Animal Medicine Cards in green.
1 – The Container is where you begin
2 – The Wood or Fuel is what’s ready or available to be transformed
3 – The Spark relates to outside help, an event or a ‘trigger’ that activates
4 – The Flames are your creativity
5a & 5b – Warmth is portrayed by 2 cards and tell you something about what’s produced
6 – Smoke is how you share or communicate
Back down in the container, there are
7 – Embers representing something to put away for now and check back in on later
8 – Ash, what must be sacrificed.
Rising back up through the flames are 2 cards
9a & 9b – The Upwards Evolution you can experience if you’re open to conscious change and creation, in other words creating the change rather than just responding to whatever happen.
Finally there’s one card for the
10 – The Possible Downpour, a time when you must carefully shelter the fire.

To align with Spring Equinox (which occurs this Tuesday March 20th, at 9:15am), a Tarot and Totem session and/or Tarot Astrology North Node / South Node are recommended.   (To schedule: 520-306-1701 or merriewolfie@gmail.com .  Price and Payment Information.
