Welcome to the first-ever installment of #newspreadsaturday! Over on Instagram — where my username is @arrow.in.flight (come find me and link up with me there if you like!) — I’m now co-hosting this monthly photo-challenge with Tabitha Dial, the North Star Muse. You can find her @tabithadial
The idea is that on the final Saturday of each month, anyone who feels like participating can create an original Tarot spread — any theme, any size, any level of complexity — and then post it on IG, tagging it using the hashtag up above in the first sentence of this post. I’d been casting about for something super-deep and mystical to use in launching this escapade, but then this spread suggested itself to me as I surfaced from sleep two days ago, and it seemed to need to be the one to come forth at this time. Therefore, I give you: the Rock Star Spread!
2016 has already been a tragic young year for quite a few of our musical heroes. Can you step up and add some rock star energy of your own to help fill this unexpected void?
1 = Your Rock Star Persona. What kind of star archetype are you? The flashy, showboating dazzler? The moody shoe-gazer? The edgy rebel? What’s your rock star vibe?
2 = Your Song. What message do you carry into the world? Poetry? Protest? Comfort? Sweetness? What do you say that makes people listen?
3 = Your Stage. What enables you to be seen and heard? What promotes you and your message? What’s your platform?
4 = Your Roadies. Who helps you out behind the scenes, doing the necessary grunt work in the shadows so that you can shine in the spotlight?
5 = Your Audience. What kind of person most needs to hear what you have to say? Who will best receive what you’re transmitting? Who are your die-hard fans?
Step up and belt out. For David Bowie…for Glenn Frey…for Paul Kantner…for you and for the rest of us…be a rock star!
