Only three more days until the New Year! 2020 is going to be a depth year for me. Numerologically, I'm in an 8/Strength personal year and the corresponding rune is Wunjo. What better year to go deeper?
The year rune I pulled for 2020 is Kenaz, a rune of wisdom, inspiration, creativity and illumination. Kenaz is a good fit with The Hierophant, one of my stalker cards in 2019. I kind of have a hunch that I was being stalked by this card precisely so that my ancestors could finally get my full attention.
A depth year is about getting focused, decluttering and getting rid of distractions. It's about paring things down to only what is truly useful and necessary. It's about frugality, recycling and upcycling. It's about diving deeper into wisdom teachings as well as connecting more deeply with Spirit on a soul level.
Over the past few days I have been contemplating using just one Tarot deck for my personal readings in 2020. In the end I decided to go with my beloved Grimaud Tarot de Marseille.***
It's hard for me to put words on why I feel this deck to be especially magical. It's not one of the prettier Marseille style decks out there. Heck, it doesn't even shuffle all that well for me, due to the thickness of the cards. It's a crude and 'clunky' deck... and maybe that's why I like it so much. There is no artifice in this deck and it makes me feel as if I'm using something that was very much the same hundreds of years ago.
I also wanted a deck that I could work with for rune correspondences. I have seen many such lists of correspondences over the years and none of them made much sense to me. Then, this morning, I came across this video on the Sacred Seed chanel. You can see the list of correspondences in the info section. This list made immediate sense to me, so I inscribed the runes on my Grimaud deck accordingly. The white backgrounds are good for inscribing the corresponding runes.
Obviously, I will still use my other decks for client readings and teaching etc. More than likely, I will keep shrinking my collection in the year to come though. If a deck doesn't fill me with Wunjo, it's better off in the home of someone who does have that connection with the deck.
I'm pretty much all set for 2020 now and I have my birch twig broom at the ready for clearing out stale, old energies on New Year's Eve. Then I will do my year head reading with my customized Rune-Tarot deck... can't wait!
