In this post, I’ll attempt to demystify February’s 3 card mini-spread from my Overview of 2018 spread. To recap, the three decks I used were The Enchanted Map, Triple Goddess Tarot, and Spirit Cats. I chose these 3 for their ability to give me concise info and for their ability to work together. The Enchanted Map card represents the theme of the month. The Triple Goddess card elaborates ways to achieve the theme. The Spirit Cats card gives me a guide card whose energy I can call upon when I need support.
Theme: #22 intention
How: 2 of Swords
Helper: night magic
Intention brings good fortune to me this month. All my goals and aspiration are moving forward. I’ve made achievable goals, yay! It’s time to set new goals and release them into the world, and let the universe and all its energies to work on my behalf. This month is perfect for setting up the life I desire and want to live. And it’s an auspicious time too, because this month I’m teaching two classes, Pop Culture Tarot and Mix and Match, at PantheaCon in San Jose, California. PantheaCon is a wonderful 4-day pagan conference featuring all sorts of classes and rituals. It’s been two years since I’ve attended and I can’t wait to return. I look forward to seeing my Californian friends and delving back into my pagan side and studies with others. Thinking about all the awesome intentions that’ll come out of this event makes me smile. I can’t wait.
Two of Swords sets the tone for how this will work. I need to still my mind, close my eyes, and allow my other senses to guide me. What do I want? What is a life worth living look like? How can I manifest the goals? These are the big, huge questions which plague me through my life. I see the two of swords as a reminder of how fluid life can be. Nothing is static. If I think back to what I thought my life was going to be like over 20 years ago, it has very little resemblance to where it is now. And that’s fine with me. Sometimes, you gotta pause on the path and make adjustments to where you want to go.
Night Magic’s name is Vespertine No-Sleep-For-The-Wild. Her energy is wild and crazy and swirly. She suggests doing things which break me out from routine and expand my sight and skills. She’ll be perfect for allowing me to see new connections in the world as I build and create new intentions for my life and projects. Perhaps I’ll get new ideas from hopping around in new playgrounds. I welcome her energies as I step out and make new magic happen.
