Gather Your Sign or Symbol
No matter if you are drawing a card or going out into nature, set your intention with a question first. Make it as specific or as general as you like.
Sample questions / intentions:
What will January look like?
What theme will I be working with in January?
Show me what I need to know about January.
(Note – the month in your question or intention will change each day based on the chart above.)

If you use the Oracle card method, be sure to put the card you selected back into the deck after you’ve recorded it. The same theme may recur over the course of the year so you want to have the full deck available when you make your daily selections. As always, shuffle the deck and ask your question before selecting the card of the day.
If you choose to gather your signs or symbols on a walk, there are a few ways to do this. You can wait for something unusual to catch your attention – an odd configuration of leaves, clouds that take shape, the texture of a tree trunk, or a special bird or some other animal. If you aren’t certain that you will recognize your sign in that way, you can also ask to be shown a similar symbol three times on your walk. Whatever way you receive your “symbol of the day” is perfect and correct for you.
Record Your Findings
Write down, draw / sketch, or take a photo of the symbol you received on the walk – or the card that you selected. Add notes on what that symbol means to you – any information or feelings you have about the symbol or card so that you will have a fuller story of the energetic theme that is being presented to you. This should be a fun exercise or experiment. There is no “wrong” answer. It is meant for you to experiment and play.
You may want to record your findings in a Journal, or use this WORKSHEET to type in your themes before printing – or you could print it and fill in by hand. You may want to hang the completed worksheet up somewhere so you can refer to it throughout the year. As with any “predictive” process, your personal growth or transformation experiences may cause you to make decisions and create from a new perspective and that will influence how and if the themes play out.
In case it isn’t super obvious, the symbol / sign or card you choose on Day 1 of the 12-day practice, will be the theme of January. The 2nd day’s sign or card will be the theme of February, and so on.
