December 2005 Spread of the Month

Holiday Blahs-to-Bliss Spread by Diane Wilkes

This is a challenging time of year for many people, myself included. Even if your environment is predominantly positive, there is often a feeling that there's just not enough money or time to spend in the ways you would most like. This spread is designed to help you put your priorities in perspective, as well as help you concretely and emotionally deal with potential challenges.

Read the Christmas Tree branches in pairs (1,2; 3,4; 5,6), observing ways in which the cards harmonize with or contradict one another. Card 7 can be something that will illuminate your holiday and/or helps you be a light to others.
