Every month we experience the opportunity to dream and plant new seeds, to manifest and create, to transform and let go, and to share wisdom.

– Lisa Lister

This spread was created as part of a personal quest to align more closely with the natural world. I had to remember who I was outside the dangerous trajectory we seem to all be on. And somehow to stop ignoring my/our true needs and find a way to embrace the Earth and all its inhabitants …before we destroy ourselves. In choosing to understand time as cyclical rather than linear, we can begin to re-wild from within. I decided to pose these questions to myself, turning a card for each phase of the moon throughout the month*. For so long simple, defined, and consistent were the parameters I used to explain things. Within the rhythm of my own unique tides, I found greater acceptance of my complexities. I gained vision and generous new perspectives. The opportunity to return, every month, to begin again, is itself a great mercy. May our efforts bring depth healing to all beings and to our wondrous water planet.

*The questions posed in the spread can also be used as prompts for personal exploration and free writing and do not need to be used with a Tarot deck.
