Serenity Tarot Spread Positions
Position 1: Foundation card
Heart of the issue
The first card of this reading takes a look at what's really at the center of your suffering. While it's usually pretty easy to identify how we're feeling, sometimes we don't know why we're feeling the way we do. When pulling this card, make sure to sit and focus on the emotions you're experiencing at that moment. Allow yourself to fully embrace what it is that's going on in your head and heart. Think of this card as putting the spotlight on the darkness you're experiencing right now.
Position 2: Barrier card
What is blocking you from healing?
The path to healing is not a straight line. The Barrier Card will help you see what it is that has been preventing you from finding the inner peace you need. Sometimes these stumbling blocks come from outside influences, and sometimes the struggle is coming from within. The message you receive from this card will allow you to confront -- and deal with -- what has been stopping you from finding inner peace.
Position 3: Healing card
Advice on how to move forward
When we're swimming in an ocean of emotion, it's not always easy to see what it is we need to do to feel good again. The third card in this spread takes a look at your situation and gives you the practical insight and advice needed to help soothe any anxiety or uncertainty you're feeling. Think of the Healing Card as your own personal counselor, helping guide you towards a better future.
Position 4: External card
What you can do to help others
In dark times it is not only we who are hurting -- others around us may be as well. We all have an internal light that acts as a beacon of hope no matter how dark these times may seem, and your External Card helps you see what this special gift is. Is your higher power that you act as a pillar of strength? Or, is it your unwavering compassion for those suffering around you?
Position 5: Internal card
What you can do to help yourself
The Tarot is known for its ability to empower us, and there is nothing more empowering than learning that everything you need to be happy is already inside of you. Think of your fifth card as your "self" card, one that shines a spotlight on your greatest source of inner strength. The insight revealed in this position will show you that not only is healing is possible, but that you already have what it takes to get there.
Position 6: Revelation card
Lessons you can learn from this situation
While it may not seem like it at the time, there is always a silver lining in times of adversity. Not only can our suffering teach us important lessons about life, but it can also teach us important lessons about ourselves. Think of your Revelation Card as a glimpse into your future -- a future where you're stronger and wiser for having gone through this situation.
No matter what it is you're dealing with right now, this simple 6-card Tarot reading can help guide you towards a happier, brighter tomorrow. Are you ready to get started? Take a deep breath, shuffle the cards, and let the power of the Tarot guide you now.
