2018 is the year of Hope

I tried something new for this year – the Year Ahead Spread from The Wild Unknown. And it was awesome!! I was leery of seeing the whole year at once, but it’s given me such peace of mind and excitement.

 

I chose just one word from these cards as themes for the months – that in itself was hard, but I went with my intuition. So, here are the themes for my whole year:

  • January
    Strength
    Majesty (this is Havi’s word for January too, but I felt it fit)
     
  • February
    IV of Cups
    Presence
     
  • March
    V of Wands
    Courage
     
  • April
    The Hermit

  • May
    Knight of Wands
    Bold
     
  • June

  • July
    The Moon
    Flow
     
  • August
