Release & Embrace for 2014
Hey, everybody else was doing it!
Haha, but really. Neopagan Priestess did it, Siddaleah did it. Anyway. It's an easy but very good spread. If you haven't yet, I suggest you try it! I can't think of a time where this spread didn't make sense to me. For some reason this is one of my favorite spreads. I have found that most spreads that are more than four cards are too much for me. Simplicity is part of what makes this so great.
When I saw the Release card, Two of Swords, I was happy. I love being released from this fate! It's the dawdling and dithering I have been mentioning a lot lately. I decided to make this one a bit more encompassing, more of a theme for the whole year of 2014 rather than just this recent New Moon in Capricorn, even though that is a very good way to use this spread. However, I am not limiting my experience of 2014 to these archetypes and ideas.
So what am I leaving behind? Well, simply look at the key words for this card:
Good riddance, right?!!! Oy!
I love the key words for the Empress used in the Shadowscapes Tarot App:
I like this energy of embracing the artist/mother within me, which is a huge part of my identity. To create and nurture. It is one of the cornerstones of my personality, and I think we are all creators of our lives and circumstances, as well as creative works.
Wishing you all abundance and creativity,
