I have been inactive in the blog for a while due to some technical difficulties. My smartphone has been in repair for almost a month, which has been crazy! During all this time, I have been thinking and I came up with this idea: A Major Arcana Spread Series!
I have created a spread for each Major Arcana that resonates with it’s very essence. This spreads will not only be helpful for determined life situations, but will also help you understand better what the card is about! A great resource for beginners and seasoned readers equally!
Without more dilation, let me introduce our very first, in fact, our zero reading!
The Fool’s Spread
The layout is pure fanciness, for the sake of the argument. Feel free to lay the cards in any way you see convenient! The key is just remembering which card has each position assigned.
To show you how this reading works on a more practical level, I have pulled an actual reading, so you can get an idea of the kind of insight that one can extract from it!
The Fool’s Spread in action!
The Fool’s Mind – What are you seeking?
What I see here, is that you are on the verge of some kind of major realization but you haven’t figured it out just yet. You are in the process of finding this pride about your achievements, you want to be able to contemplate your life and realize with pride how far you have come! This is not only about appreciating what you have achieved so far in your life, but more importantly, about how you have done it.
You are not fully aware of what your skills are, and I have the feeling that even when you have gone through a hard time or a difficult situation you have managed to get out of it and succeed, even though you are not clear on how did you do it. Luck? Divine intervention? The cards indicate that it has more to do with your own abilities.
Once you identify what those abilities are, you will be in a better place to reproduce this success with a purpose, rather than when you are close to the limit. Analyzing the situations of your past and the steps that you have taken towards it will help you gain more knowledge and awareness of your thought process, of your decision making process and will have a direct and positive impact in your future.
The Fool’s Origin – Where do you come from?
You are coming from a place of preservation. You have known lack and not having, therefore you are now pretty focused on not taking unnecessary risks. While this will maintain your sense of security, it will also prevent you from having richer experiences. It is more a matter of balancing these energies, preserve and consider your options, know when to take a chance and when to step back.
Be it material related, emotional or even spiritual, try to identify the reasons because of which you are hoarding certain things or holding on to them so badly. You may then decide that you just do not want to let go, but knowing why, identifying the origin of this behaviour will give you better control of yourself and your life.
The Fool’s Bag – What is in your baggage?
This is strongly related to the past card and position. You have contemplated many times what you could become, what you would like to do, but you tend to choose what is known and comfortable over the pursuit of your potential. You have learnt how to be comfortable, and that is enough, but you can give yourself permission to aim higher!
An idea that might help you is making a distinction between what you consider crucial and what is not. The things that you really want to maintain just as they are, and what you could risk or trade for something better.
The Fool’s Dog – What will aid you?
If you are willing to take a leap of faith and explore other options and paths, your mind will be your ally! Keeping your focus on what you want to achieve, having a clear mind, a defined objective is the base of what you need, however, it is the knowledge that you will have gained by asking yourself the questions previously mentioned, analyzing the situations that have come up during the reading, what will trigger this change into your life.
You have plenty of ideas, and you have the necessary skills to make it happen, to aim higher and get it. Knowing how it works, is the key to making it a reality.
The Fool’s Leap – Where to take a leap of faith?
What this card is showing is that you have a tendency to contemplation, you imagine possible options, scenarios and outcomes, and even when you are given opportunities, you tend to spend quite a long time before making a decision. This puts you at risk of losing the potential or losing the opportunity for not having taken action sooner.
Looking at the cards, what I think is that you need to embrace these opportunities. Pick one, move, make a decision that opens up more options. Your ideas can be a reality if you stop wondering and start acting on them.
The Fool’s Relief – Outcome.
The Eight of Swords is a very curious card and one that I feel strongly attracted to. It seems to be a prison, a pretty burdening card, but at the end of the day, it brings the realization that your limits were only imagined. By applying the given advice into your life, you will realize that the possibility has been there all along, and that you have created your own cage. The good news is that it is not real and you can easily let go of that limitations and embrace a greater benefit.
And this is basically what one can get out of this amazing spread! Try it at home and tell me about your results! Share, comment, participate and enjoy!
