Closing the Book On 2018 is the follow-up to last year’s Closing the Book On 2017. While its base premise is an Instagram divination practice, it’s equally suited to a journaling practice, or even a meditation practice. For some of us, it may be a combination of all those things.
This year’s Closing the Book on 2018 divination practice offers up a total of 11 prompts, beginning December 1 and ending December 31. The hope is that the space between prompts will make it both more manageable and also more juicy. We’ll have more time to marinate in the heady and heartful juices of our self-inquiry.
For each prompt, reflect on 2018, draw a Tarot or oracle card for guidance, and allow your intuition to divine the answer that’s best for you.
If you wish to use Instagram for this practice, you can follow me right here. My handle is @thesoulways. (No period after the “s”.) I’ll share all the prompts at once today, November 29, on Instagram and then share the prompts individually on each day of the practice.
If you wish to complete this practice offline, the 11 prompts are below, both in text and image form. May they assist you with Closing the Book On 2018, and paving the way for 2019.
