The New Year heralds both endings and beginnings. Reflecting upon the lessons and challenges presented to us here in Earth School, we can assess what we've learned over the course of a  year and how we fared in meeting our personal challenges--as well as the types of challenges we may face for the upcoming year.

I've created a special 13-card spread for the New Year called Lessons From Earth School. This spread can be used with any oracle or Tarot deck, as well as runes. Below is the card layout:






































Card 1: What physical lesson was presented to me this past year?
Card 2: What lesson about thoughts and attitudes was presented to me this past year?
Card 3: What lesson about relationships was presented to me this past year?
Card 4: How did I fare in learning about the physical realm? What did I learn?
Card 5: How did I fare in learning about thoughts and attitudes? What did I learn?
Card 6: How did I fare in learning about relationships? What did I learn?
Card 7: What lesson or challenge can I expect in the physical realm this upcoming year?
Card 8: What lesson or challenge can I expect in the thought/attitude realm this upcoming year?
Card 9: What lesson or challenge about relationships can I expect this upcoming year?
Card 10: What energy do I need to release from last year?
Card 11: What will help me release this energy?
Card 12: What energy do I need to welcome for this upcoming year?
Card 13: What will help me receive this energy with grace?
