November 2020 Planning Spread

To recap, in 2020 I’m using these decks: The Sovereign Oracle, the mini Ceccoli Tarot, and the Animantras deck. I chose them because I wanted to play with mini decks this year. They give me a theme, a means to apply the theme, and a cute animal to act as the guide for the lesson. This whole spread sits on my desk where I can see it, work with the energies, and integrate them into my day.

Theme: Focus
How: 3 of Wands
Helper: Horse (be reliable)

I adore this month’s theme: FOCUS! This is the month that kicks my ass into gear and makes me take charge of what I want to leave behind in 2020. I’ll be taking the time to look hard at what unfinished projects I have (on my desk, in my head, and on the various lists) and start knocking them off one by one. I want to cultivate more attention to what I enjoy doing and attempt to clear the clutter and distractions. 

How I’ll be doing this is the Three of Wands. In this tarot, we see a young woman sitting in a tree and she seems to be pondering something down in her lap. My first thought is that she is reading or writing dreams down in a notebook. I have plans. I had big plans this year but the pandemic put it all on hold. Instead, I can dream and focus my attention to what is in front of me, both literally and goal-wise, and where I want to go in the future. So, I will focus on those plans and start laying down the seeds to get from where I am now sitting in my house to sending those items and ideas out into the world in 2021 and beyond.

My helper on this journey is Horse whose message is be reliable. Horse belongs to the sacral chakra, which focuses on creativity and feelings of security. I’m deathly allergic to horses and I love them. There is a beauty and grace to them. They have been humanity’s friend for thousands of years, carrying us and our possessions to leading us to safe areas and water. Kayti says that horse is here to remind us that we need to be held accountable to ourselves as well as those who rely on us. While the continuing stay-at-homeness of this new world makes it really easy to slack off, I still need to be reliable to my partner, my friends, and all the creative projects and clients who are continuing to work with me. I promise to be reliable to them all this month.
