This first one I called “A Path Forward” and it kinda weighs three options for moving forward in an uncertain situation.
Card 1: Represents you. You could choose an indicator, if that’s your sorta thing, but I’m a glutton for punishment and like to let the deck tell me exactly what sort of disaster I’m being at any given point in time.
Card 2: What Crosses You. Basically a big influence causing the period of indecision, stagnation, and tension.
Card 3: Represents the Path You’re Currently On. Meaning, based upon the patterns you’re following and the energy at hand, this is the way things are headed.
Card 4: Road Block! This is what’s keeping you from moving forward on the path you’re currently on.
Card 5: Alternate Route #1. This can be an option you’ve already considered or a suggestion someone (heck maybe the cards suggest it) gave you.
Card 6: Road Block for Alternate Route #1. Self explanatory.
Card 7: Alternate Route #2. Just like the first alternate route, this is just another possible path to take.
Card 8: You guessed it, this is a Road Block to Alternate Route #2. But don’t worry, there are still three more cards left in this reading.
Card 9: Overcoming the road block for the path you’re on. This should be a practical action to take towards pushing through and continuing on your way.
Card 10: A means of overcoming the road block for Alternate Route #1. Again. Practical action to take. A means of clearing your options.
Card 11: A means of overcoming the road block for Alternate Route #2.
This spread is meant less to be an outcome thing, and more of a means of examining some options when it feels like you’re spinning your wheels.
The second spread I’ve (for now) called the “Key to Your Purpose” spread and is meant for those existential “What do I wanna do with my life?” sort of times.
Card 1: Again, this will represent you. Just like the last spread, you can pick an indicator, or let the cards call it like it is.
Card 2: What Crosses You. The big influence/situation that’s got you feeling this way.
Card 3: The Path You’re On. What you’re currently doing!
Card 4: The Thing You were Meant to Do. What it is you’re being called to do. It could align well with Card 3. It might not.
Card 5: The Turning Point. The means of moving from the path you’re on, to the path you’re meant to be on. Like turning a key that unlocks a door.
Cards 6-8 are practical actions to take in order to achieve this. Card 5 gives you the big picture, but 6-8 are meant to be the little steps to take.
Card 9: Your Purpose. Sort of an outcome card. This card should (hopefully) grant some closure. A goal to work towards. A purpose for life that is achievable through the advice given in the earlier cards.
Hope these are helpful to someone!
