What’s WRONG with… Me? – A Tarot Spread.

Hello there!

I am constantly creating custom readings for my querents, honestly, I think it is one of the best ways to give each person what they need. However, I was thinking about creating a more generic spread.

When we screw it up, it is not unusual to hear a big loud “What’s WRONG with you?!”

It is about time we find out, don’t you think?

The “What’s wrong with me?” Tarot Spread.


Joe and Mike are a couple. They have had a heated argument over their finances. Joe does not work at the time and wants to spend his savings in a PS4, while Mike, who is more conservative with money wants to save for a house and doesn’t feel that Joe is collaborating. Joe has felt very attacked and is now considering that Mike may be right, but he’s too proud to admit it. On the other hand, Mike feels that he has been way too hard on Joe and although he feels that he’s right, he didn’t mean to hurt his partner.

So Mike pulls this reading for himself.

1 – Here I’m being an ass: (Nine of Swords) Mike is fearful of the future, he likes to have everything figured out and to have an emergency plan. He feels that a crazy money expense can jeopardize his future and he is a little bit over-concerned about the issue. 

2 – Here I’m right: (Eight of Cups) Letting go of what has been hard earned for a momentary satisfaction, may not be the best idea ever. Mike is right when he thinks that Joe is not fully aware of what he is sacrificing in order to get what he wants. 

3 – I should take this into account: (Judgement) Mike likes to plan ahead and he truly believes that his efforts will pay off when the time is right, but he has not taking into account that perhaps Joe thinks that he deserves to have his “prize” as well. After all, he may have made his own efforts in order to earn that money. 

4 – How can I make things up: (Knight of Cups) In this case, the “screwing up” has not been that big. Exposing his feelings and reassuring his partner of how much they care about them could be the way to go. As well, trying to show some compassion next time could prevent this from happening in the future. 

5 – Outcome: (Ace of Pentacles) This is going to be a lesson for the both of them, in the future, they can expect changes in the way they approach their financial issues. This has been a wake-up call for the both of them and now they will be more open to deal with things differently than they were before. 

And this is basically it! Please, try this at home!
