Northern Lights Goddess Aurora Spread

On This Day

The Northern Lights occur over 35 miles above Earth and are visible from space.

On this day, a geomagnetic storm causes the Aurora Borealis to shine so brightly that it is seen over the United States, Europe, and even as far as Japan. Said to be Viking spirit dancers, Eskimo spirit animals, Greek portents of war, and Algonquin reflections of the Creator’s fire, the Northern Lights have inspired cross-cultural mythology from the moment they first danced above human eyes.

Summation of Spread

The Fool card shows us that each and every day is an opportunity for a fresh start. The Fool represents freedom of all things—free love, free travel, and freedom to think. He is pure potential.

Do you enjoy morning hours? The Aurora Borealis are named for the Roman Aurora, goddess of the dawn, and Boreas, the Greek name for the north wind. This spread takes inspiration from Aurora, who renews herself every morning and flies across the sky announcing the sun’s arrival.
