Looking Ahead with the Seer's Compass Spread

I'm not someone who reaches for the largest spreads with any regularity which is why I often avoid 'end of year/look ahead' spreads like the plague. This year though, it's been niggling and niggling at me and I finally broke down and worked a spread to peek into 2018. I refused to do a month by month spread because I'm stubborn and I wanted to keep it under twelve cards but I still ended up with 13 cards so... there goes that.

Anyway, check it out below and see if it's something you'd be into.

SEER'S COMPASS SPREAD

LODESTONE

If you use a tarot deck, I suggest drawing from the Court Cards.

0. You β—―

CARDINAL POINTS

These are the cornerstones of your spread. These are my own personal associations with the four directions so I absolutely welcome you to shift and change them as resonates with you. For example, to the South I find water where you may find earth or fire. Any spread works best when it works for you, so do what you need to for your own intuitive understanding. 

If you use a tarot deck, I suggest drawing from the Major Arcana.

1.  Fire πŸœ‚ External πŸœ‚ Spirit
2. Water πŸœ„ Internal πŸœ„ Heart
3. Air 🜁 Mental 🜁 Growth
4. Earth πŸœƒ Physical πŸœƒ Stability

CONNECTIONS

These are the 'tween spaces between the cardinal points at NW, NE, SW, and SE. Just like they do in a compass, they provide a closer and sometimes more exact idea of where you are. I also played with alchemical associations of what happens when you combine elements. For example, the combination of Air+Fire energy is expressive and outwardly transformative where the combination of Water+Earth is still and sometimes sticky.

If you use a tarot deck, I suggest drawing from the Minor Arcana.

5. Outward Expression πŸœ‚ + 🜁
6. Inner Flame πŸœ‚ + πŸœƒ
7. Quiet Stillness πŸœƒ + πŸœ„
8. Clarifying Release πŸœ„ +🜁

ACTION

Here you will find the practical energetic guidance from your guides and inner spirit. The spread position titles here are more of a guide than a definite choice. You can use any four words of your own here; these are just my way of seeing the cycle play out.

I love an oracle card for these positions and also if you use a tarot deck, drawing from the Minor Arcana is suggested.

9. Breathe
10. Gather
11. Create
12. Reveal
