CLOSED. I am overbooked at the moment. This offering is not currently available.

A projections reading takes into account the “known” metaphysical variables at play in your life path and uses it to project forward for a given period of time. For more information about my approach to projections, read my “About Your Reading” page.

This would be an ideal birthday reading that projects into the coming year for you. Order one at the conclusion of a year so you can begin making plans for the new, or the start of a new year to help you prepare for the twelve months ahead.

Calculating the Twelve Month Period


Generally the twelve-month period used for your forecast reading commences with each new fiscal quarter. Note the above reference diagram. For example, if your reading is delivered to you in February, then the first month of the twelve-month period will commence on January. Likewise, if your reading is delivered to you in June, then the first month of the twelve-month period will commence on April, the start of the second fiscal quarter for the year. Thus, at any given point, there may be one to two “past” months for reference in your reading.

The exception to the rule is December. If you book a New Year reading in December, then it is presumed that you want a reading for the subsequent year, commencing on January, so then New Year forecast readings will commence on January, even if that reading is booked or delivered in December.

About the Reading Content

After you provide me with your birth details, I will construct your natal chart and the solar returns chart for the year we’re running the twelve-month projections for. The first section of your reading will be an interpretation of your solar returns chart for that year, or divinatory personal astrology.


We’ll talk about which areas of life will come forward to center stage in the given year and where you should be in terms of career and personal relationship progress, per your natal chart. We’ll talk about the general outlook for that year for various aspects of life.

When you send me specific areas you’d like me to examine or you have specific questions that you want answered, I’ll address those inquiries here by way of your solar returns chart and a comparative analysis of it with your birth chart.


Based on your birth chart, I’ll select a signifier (or significator) card in tarot to anchor a tarot divination toward your personal energetic field. Then we commence the tarot portion of your projections reading.


For this reading service, I’ll open the four words, corresponding with the four elements, and identify the area of life to focus most on in the coming year. If you’re proficient with the tarot, then you might recognize this as part of the First Operation per the Opening of the Key divination. In this reading, we won’t go in-depth with the First Operation. We only open the four worlds to divine on area of focus.

Then I will draw twelve cards in total, positioned into the four quarters of a full year period. Coverage for each card is brief, but insightful and gives just what you need to be empowered for that month. We also draw patterns per fiscal quarter, so for every three-month period in the twelve-month cycle, we’ll talk about some overarching patterns that emerge for the quarter. We’ll cover which area of life seems to be the focus for each month, what might come up, events, and which months are auspicious for what.

Here, answering the questions you presented me with may or may not come up, depending of course on the cards drawn. However, by sending me your issues and questions of concern, I can be on the alert for those matters while I interpret the cards for you.

Most notably, for the twelve month projections, we’ll cross-reference the tarot cards with your solar returns chart and note the significant patterns, synchronicities, and what seems to be consistently emphasized across both your solar returns chart for the year and the twelve cards we’ve drawn for your tarot reading. For example, if the card for the month of November is the Death card, which I correspond astrologically with Scorpio, then locate the house Scorpio is under in your solar returns chart and interpret accordingly, adding that astrological analysis to your card for November reading.


Then we’ll cover six major areas of life– (1) career, (2) financials, (3) health and wellness, (4) personal relationships, (5) life purpose development, and (6) personal spirituality. I’ll be using the above-pictured spread for this section of your reading. Left to right, the three cards along the diagonal are: (1) career, (2) financials, and (3) health and wellness. Along the right half, the top card of the triangle formation is (4) personal relationships; the bottom two cards, left and right, are (5) life purpose development and (6) insights into personal spirituality for the twelve-month period.

In total, this reading will cover your solar returns chart, a common birthday or New Year divination to forecast what is up ahead, a divination that contacts Spirit directly to reveal which area of life you’re being asked to focus on in the coming year, a twelve-card reading that will project and forecast twelve months, and then a final divination that addresses specifically six key areas of life.

If you have any specific areas you’d like me to focus on, please let me know in your reading request and I’ll happily oblige. If you have a list of questions you’d like me to try to cover, send it along and I’ll see what comes up in your reading that matches and answers your questions, and point those out specifically in your reading. Feel free to go stream-of-consciousness style and don’t hold back with your list of questions.

However, please note that this reading service is not a divination for specific questions per se, so if you want specific questions divined upon, then consider one of the other divinatory services I offer, such as the Single Question Divination, for one question, or the Tarot Plus Divination, for up to three questions I’ll answer head on.

Delivery Time

Given my difficult schedule, I can’t provide an accurate estimate for delivery time. If that is not something you are okay with, then I won’t be the right reader for you. Typically, for these twelve-month projection readings, I have been tendering delivery of the PDF to you via email within 30 days of the order confirmation.

I cannot fulfill rush orders. If you need a divinatory answer sooner than the delivery time I estimate for you, then this reading service is not going to be right for you. You’ll want to seek service elsewhere.

Payment Details

Payment will be by PayPal or by e-mail of an Amazon gift card in the stated dollar amount. Payment will be after receipt of your reading.

My Tarot Readings

Tarot is my thing. I’ve studied tarot longer and with more intensity than I have studied anything, and that includes music, which I started when I was five years old (and was a huge part of my life for a very long time, though I stopped around college), and even my legal education and later, legal practice. How insane is that.

If you’ve never gotten a tarot reading before and think that it involves setting your future in stone, then let me just tell you that I am hypersensitive with my care for showing you what the paths are only, not what you will do or what will happen. I believe very strongly that your life is a garden of forking paths, not a single one-way road, and so I see my job as a reader as helping you map out and see ahead of time all the different possibilities of those forking paths.

Note that I do not limit a tarot reading session to just tarot, even though the meat and potatoes of the session will be the cards. I may from time to time bring in natal astrology (if you’ve given me the needed birth chart info), I Ching divination, numerology, or any other form of divination that I practice.

Plus, if you provide your date of birth, time of birth, and location of birth, I’ll construct your natal chart and we’ll take a quick glance at that for reference during your tarot reading session. Otherwise, a date of birth or even just your horoscope sign will suffice in the selecting of a signifier (or significator) card. I use significators in my approach to tarot.
