Sunday Spreads time!

Alright so I know these spreads are pretty basic BUT I really needed some straight shooters today for a very specific situation I wanted to ask about.

Anyway, I think some of you will find these useful. I’ve found the ‘Wires’ spread to be particularly useful in that sometimes it’s good to know where the other person thinks you stand, because that helps you determine if there are any misunderstandings between you.

I’m also thinking of making graphics for the spreads I’ve found while digging through the tarot forums (with full credit to the original creators of course). What do you guys think?

"Not All Who Wander Are Lost" Tarot Spread
1.  Your goal
2.  The real issue(s) keeping you from reaching it
3.  Obstacles you will face and must overcome
4.  Approach/Path 1
5.  Approach/Path 2
6.  Advice for Path 1
7.  Advice for Path 2
8.  Outcome for Path 1
9.  Outcome for Path 2
For the last few years I’ve been feeling a bit lost career-wise.  What I’ve spent the last 10 years of my life doing is not what I want to do, but I feel stuck, old, & tired.  When I was young I had a plan—a very straightforward plan that I allowed myself to be diverted from with mixed results (+cute son; -controlling ex husband).  It took me a long time to realize that there isn’t just one path to reach my goals—there are many and I have the power to find one.
When you get to feeling that you’re in a rut, remember that there are thousands of people out there where you want to be and they each had their own way of getting there.  This spread will help you find at least two options/approaches to reach a goal (it doesn’t have to be career) and to reassure you—there is a way to get to your goal from where you are.
Feel free to play with it….add more paths, add an extra card after each approach to see what individual obstacles each path will create or bring forth.  Be brave and seek out the advice you need, but remember you are ultimately in control of you :)

Deck Interview Spread

I found this spread a few years ago on Aeclectic Tarot. It is a simple six card spread that allows you to meet your new tarot deck and get to know it. It’s strengths and weaknesses. It’s personality. It will show how it can help you grow, become a better reader and a better person. It is usually the first spread I throw for any deck.

The cards can be laid out any way you prefer, I lay mine out left to right.
Card #1: Tell me about yourself? What is your most important characteristic? The general personality of your deck. This question will reveal if your deck is painfully truthful, a prankster, a pragmatist, a romantic, etc.
Card #2: What are your strengths as a deck? The best features of your deck. This will help decide what kind of questions to ask and spreads to throw.
Card #3: What are your limits as a deck? This card represents the challenges, blocks and obstacles your deck may have. This is also helpful to decide what questions to ask and spreads to throw.
Card #4: What do you bring to the table? What are you here to teach me? We all have teachers in life and Tarot’s higher purpose is to teach us. To show us our areas of growth and help us improve.
Card #5: How can I best learn from and collaborate with you? Tarot, like all relationships, is a partnership. This card shows how to best utilize that partnership and shows you the best way to approach your deck.
Card #6: What is the potential outcome of our relationship? The most likely result of working diligently with your deck.

The Shadow Situations Spread is something I created for myself a little while ago. I couldn’t shake the feeling I was missing something important from my personal divinations and introspection. I created this spread to show not only what I messages I was missing, but what I was willfully ignoring, the stuff I didn’t want to face. This isn’t really a light or easy spread, but as I have used it for myself its been wonderfully enlightening. It also gives good advice.
 
Anyway:
The special thing about this deck is that you draw cards from the bottom of your deck, rather than the top. Just shuffle your deck like normal, while thinking of the situation or question. When it ‘feels right’ stop and start pulling cards from the bottom of your face-down deck until you have all the cards laid out as pictured.
1)Your Perception of The Situation: aka What you think is going on.
2)What You’re Missing: Pretty self explanatory
3)What You’re Willfully Ignoring: You know this is going on, somewhere, but you just aren’t facing it like you need to.
4)What Your Intuition Is Trying To Tell You: The Answer to ‘oh deer lord I feel like I’m missing something. constantly’
5)What You’re Actually Asking: I have a hard time phrasing my tarot questions to answer the question I really need. Then I did this reading for myself I actually got The Answer and not The Question thankfully.
6)The Reality of The Situation: Not influenced by your biases, this is what is really going on.
7)What Could Make This Situation Worse: aka What not to do.
8)What Could Make The Situation Better: aka What to do.

So yeah! Look at my new spread, the first I’ve ever made from scratch, I hope you like it! Any feedback is welcome and please tag me if you ever post a reading of it, I’d love to see!

If you would like me to do a reading for you check out my shop: Iced Shadows Tarot! I just added a lot of spread options over the last several days.
