A Xmas spread: Looking back at the year

Xmas, whether you celebrate it or not, is the ideal time to look back at what was good in the year past and dream a little about the year to come.

This spread looks complicated; just read the cards as indicated below. You start with reading the three columns of three cards each:

Spread 9 cards in 3 rows of 3

Cards 1, 2, and 3: Three things that gave your life meaning in the past year

Cards 4, 5, and 6: Three things you are grateful for

Cards 7, 8, and 9: Three things you have learned

Now you read the same cards, but diagonally, again starting at card 1:

Cards 1, 5, and 9: Three things you are looking forward to in the new year

Cards 3, 5, and 7: Three things that will bring you closer to your dreams
