Live Each Season Spread

Quotes are inspiring in and of themselves. When you find one that particularly resonates with you, try making a spread with it. When I encountered the quote below, by Henry David Thoreau, I didn’t even have to think about it …the spread revealed itself spontaneously as I read each line.

Live each season as it passes

Breathe the air
Drink the drink
Taste the fruit
And resign yourself to the influences of each

Go through your deck and select a card to represent the season you are in or approaching and place it in position as card 1. Then shuffle and lay out the rest of the cards as you normally would.

1: Your season.
2: What gives you life this season.
3: What refreshes you this season.
4: What nourishes you this season.
5: What you must endure this season.
