(This essay first appeared in issue 3 of the Wild Goose Guidance newsletter.)
A couple months ago, I developed a new card reading spread that has turned out to be incredibly powerful for both myself and my clients who have received it.
Following the 8 compass points, it takes the growth cycle of a seed from “Tilling the Soil” to “Harvest.”
Each phase in the cycle represents a season of personal growth and enlightenment. For instance, in phase 3: Transplanting, which falls to the South, the focus is on Love, Trust, and True Will
Indeed, it takes a huge amount of love and trust to will yourself to be transplanted from your cozy little germination home to a wide open field of growth.
Out of fear, some will stay too long in the germination stage, their roots hitting walls that once protected their fragility but now stifle their vitality.
My hope and prayer for you this year is that you will be courageous and true. That you will step out into the wild, fertile places and settle strong roots where you can truly thrive.
It would be my honor to offer you guidance from the Wild Goose for this year of growth.
