December 2004 Tarot Passages Spread of the Month
Energy Spread by Ellen Lorenzi-Prince
This spread seems particularly apropos for this time of the year, when our energies and resources may seem overwhelmed. -- Ed.
Energy is the life force that burns within you. It is intangible, yet necessary to your well-being and quality of life. Its presence or lack is immediately felt. This spread is designed to help you identify the sources that feed your energy, the factors that drain it away, and what you can do to increase this vital force.
Resources and taxes of your energy can be found in many areas of your life. Several major ones are identified below. You may ask these same questions about any specific area that is on your mind. Lay out the cards in any pattern that is comfortable for you.
In your physical environment (the place you live, your home, your body):
1. What feeds you?
2. What drains you?
3. What steps can you take to increase a positive flow?
In your personal relationships (family, friends, lovers, co-workers):
4. What feeds you?
5. What drains you?
6. What steps can you take to increase a positive flow?
In your work (job, hobbies, activities, callings):
7. What feeds you?
8. What drains you?
9. What steps can you take to increase a positive flow?
In your internal life (growing, healing, learning, spiritual practice):
10. What feeds you?
11. What drains you?
12. What steps can you take to increase a positive flow?
