Last week brought about some particularly challenging obstacles. Unable to figure out my next step, I felt stick in my situation. After 20 minutes of that, I needed to get some perspective. So, I dealt my own spread. Let's BLOG about it.
I don't often read for myself. Usually, I am busy having a good time reading others. To be honest, I hadn't read myself in more than a year. It just isn't something that I do.
There are a number of reasons why I don't. For example, if the spread doesn't bring me comfort, I reshuffle and try again. Basically, I don't stop until the cards read what I want them to read. So, what is the point in that?!
Among other reasons, I don't read for myself because I disbelieve the good results. If cards come up that are positive, I don't accept them. Why do I do that? I have no idea. It is wonderful to get lovely cards like the Sun and the World. But when they pop up for me, I'm in total disbelief.
This week, in the midst of my problems, I sat down and deal the cards. I did a quick spread, the "Movie Scene Spread." It gives you an overview of what is happening, how it will go, and the outcome. It went really well. because I took the cards at face value and left it at that. And they were PERFECT! I did just as they suggested and I can't be happier that I did. But man, it is rare I can do that for me.
Will I be going out and getting readings from other Tarot Readers? Nope. I am gonna keep trying to read my own cards. I gotta get better at it and you know I don't shy away from a challenge.
