A few days ago, I pulled 13 cards from my Chakra Color Cards to help guide me with an overall theme for the year and also a color/chakra and affirmation to focus on for each month.

I shuffled the cards and placed them around in a circle starting with 1 for January and moving around like a clock. Ending with the theme card in the center. So I pulled 13 in total. Below are the cards that came up for me!

Year Ahead Spread for for 2024

This is a lovely way to set a theme for the year and also a theme for each month which I will focus on in my Color journal. You can try this with any card deck you have. I’ll continue to use these cards and my other color cards to dive deeper into the journaling process. I’ll share some insights with you each month, but you can also follow along on my @createyourcolorstory Instagram and Facebook page

Below is the starting point for my journal spread where I record the layout in my journal inside the front cover and then outline what card came up for each month.

If you are in the Chakra Color Art Journal Class, there is a short video and pdf download for creating your year ahead spread using the free cards you get in class. I’ll be posting the new videos in class throughout 2024 also.

I then add a copy of the cards into the next page to outline the monthly cards I pulled so I can get a lovely overview of where to focus each month.
