February 2002 Spread - Brid's Wheel by Christine Jette

This spread appears in Tarot for All Seasons, and seemed timely, as Imbolc, the holiday it's created for, occurs February 2nd.  Even if you don't celebrate Imbolc, Jette suggests you can use this spread to "make plans, gain strength, heal, and attain creative inspiration.  Thanks to Christine Jette for allowing me to offer this spread to Tarot Passages' readers.

Position One: Strength

This card shows where you are strong.  If you don't like this card, it may be because it describes a painful life experience that has made you strong--or will make you strong if you directly face the issue.

Position Two: Heart's Desire

Your deepest desire.  What do you really want?  This card may surprise you.  Do you dare to speak of your secret dreams?

Position Three: Healer

What needs to be healed if you are to be strong?  Note whether or not there is a relationship between position one (strength) and this card.  Does this card describe a situation or give you advice about a situation?

Position Four: Creative Inspiration

When healing energy is released, creative inspiration is the result.  What are you inspired to do?  What creative activity fires you up?

Position Five: Making Plans

Based on the creative information of position four, what plans can you now make?  Look for the relationships between cards three, four, and five.  Healing energy produces a creative spark that needs planning to become real.

Position Six: New Growth

What is the promise of spring that lies just beneath the snow?  By knowing where you are strong and focusing on your heart's desire, healing releases a creative fire that offers new beginnings.  What is your promise of spring?
