During the month of December many spend the month with love ones celebrating the end of the season. For magical users we celebrate Yule representing the season of Winter. Yule represents the rest we all need before the renewal of Spring and the new year.
This Yule tarot spread reflects the season of Yule, the holiday many see as a time of celebration and self-reflection. This tarot spread is designed for the reader to select one card for each day, reflecting on the cards meaning and its connection to your own life. The idea is to focus on one card at a time only on the twelfth day will you look at all the cards to discover the bigger picture.
