Starting Over Spread (Giving Your Past the Middle Finger)
Here’s the thing. I never intended this spread to look like it was flipping you off. I’m not sure how it didn’t translate on paper, but it wasn’t until I was making it on my computer that I was like, “Holy shit.” And I love it! A great symbol for leaving the past behind.
I tend to create spreads that have something to do with my life at the time. Right now, I am basically starting over. You can call it a quarter-life crisis. So, I tested this spread (as you should) on myself before publishing it here. And, yup, it works! :D
I love seven-card spreads mostly because I love the number seven. Also, I believe numbering is huge - meaning the order in which you lay down the cards. Let’s look at those now:
1 - Now: sums up your current situation/feelings
2 - What you left behind: your past (the good, bad, and ugly)
3 - Guidance: for moving forward (this can be a person or just a thought)
4 - Nearest obstacle: the next challenge you’ll face
5 - How to overcome: how to overcome that obstacle
6 - What to learn: what to take away from that experience
7 - The other side: what’s waiting for you after the challenge
You could even leave off cards 2 & 3 for a simpler spread to do over and over again for each new obstacle you face.
Well, that’s about it. I am proud of this one - please do not steal it in any way! But please use it, share it, reblog, etc. And leave me feedback, if you wish!
