Last Thursday’s monthly tarot class, 20 folks strong, was a process to help people clarify a larger goal for 2010, discover the blocks to achieving that goal, overcoming the blocks, and creating doable actions. Here’s an abbreviated activity you can do for yourself do get closer to something you desire to create, either within yourself or in your outer world:
Decide on a goal. Write it down. Go through your face-up tarot deck and select ONE card that most looks or feels like you living out your accomplished goal. Write its name and the positive qualities that you sense in the image. What can you do over the next month that feels like those qualities? Write it down. What can you do over the next week that feels like the card’s helpful qualities? Write it down. What can you do over the next 24 hours that feels like your goal card’s helpful qualities? Write it down. Keep your chosen tarot card in sight as often as possible to remind you of your goal. Do the actions you came up with. Create more actions as needed. Do them.
We concluded the evening by calling upon the Tarot of the Crone for its wisdom for the new year. Each person got a quick personal message from the Crone. Holiday goodies fortified us well. Several new people attended and many long-timers caught up with one another. It was a joyous evening!
