365 Tarot Spreads: Revealing the Magic in Each Day - Sasha Graham 2014

Toast Yourself Spread

On This Day

Champagne is a specific region in France, and only grapes from this geographical location may be legally called champagne.

Champagne is said to have been invented on this day in 1693 by Dom Perignon, a French Benedictine monk. The story claims Perignon was making wine, and he couldn’t get rid of the bubbles. Tasting it, he exclaimed, “Come quickly! I am drinking the stars!”

Summation of Spread

The Nine of Pentacles is evocative of vineyards, wine, and champagne. A woman stands amidst a lush harvest of grapes. The background castle is indicative of generational winemakers who have stepped before her. The castle stands for the familial and cultural heritage handed to you; it is your birthright.

Need a pick-me-up? Raise a glass to yourself. Champagne’s invention, though likely more legend than truth, inspires a spread that would raise a thousand glasses.

Cast Your Cards

Cast your cards in the shape of champagne flute. As each bubble pops, may a wish come true.
