July 2018 Planning Spread

In this post, I’ll attempt to demystify July’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: #10 rock bottom
How: Tower
Helper: majesty

July’s 2018’s 3-card spread

When I think of Rock Bottom, I think about hitting a personal low. Everything has gone to hell and there’s no coming back from it. This month’s theme sounds a lot like disaster but it’s not. Strangely, this card asks us to surrender through challenges. The only way up from a deep, dark place is to surrender and gain perspective. So, this is what I will attempt to learn this month. See the challenges I’m facing, surrendering to them, and using the new perspectives to help me grow and rise up.

The Tower becomes the perfect mechanism to learn this lesson. It’s all about stripping yourself bare, to see what you are made of, so you can build your self back up, stronger. The flashes of insight during this moment give us power to see what is really important, and what our character is made of. Good stuff for a month all about surrendering.

Majesty is my spirit cat guide this month. She’s regal and helps illuminate the traits that make us shine. Surrendering and stripping myself bare is hard and dirty work. She’ll be next to me to remind me of the beauty that I am and to honor and respect myself as I work thorough this transformation.
