Wheel of Change Spread

Card 1: Litha - The Summer Solstice. Everything is all bright and blooming. This card represents what in your life is at it’s peak, what is most prominent.

Card 2: Mabon - The Autumn Equinox. When light turns to dark, the celebration of harvest - what in your life are you letting go of? Are there any lessons you need to ‘harvest’ before moving on, or should this just be left behind?

Card 3: Yule. The Winter Solstice. The longest night of the year. What in your life lies dormant or ignored? Should it stay that way, or is now the time to bring more light into this area of your life?

Card 4: Ostara. The Spring Equinox. Light overcoming dark. What is growing in your life? Should you allow this to bloom, or perhaps weed it out?

Card 5: Surrounding energies and advice. The overall balance of your life. Look to what card this one seems to pair with, and perhaps put some extra thought into that.

Bonus step - As it is Mabon, after considering the spread as a whole, set card 2 aside. Shuffle the other cards back in, then shuffle the Mabon card back in separately and thoroughly, while concentrating on the energies surrounding it. Search the deck for the Mabon card, and pull it and the surrounding 2 cards out. The card before it represents what to harvest, what to hang on to. The card behind represents what you can let go of.

"Which is Right for Me?" Spread
   by ShelbyMelissa

  1. The Choice- These cards represent the choices the querent is deciding between. They can be chosen from the deck before hand or laid out with the other cards.
  2. Why this Choice is Better - These cards go into why this particular choice (a or b) is better than the other one.
  3. How to Execute - This card suggests how to follow through with the choice (a or b).
  4. Outcome - The possible outcome of following card 3 for that choice (a or b).

The “a” path is one of the choices and the follow through. The “b” path is the other choice and the follow through for that one. Most choice spreads go into how to execute, possible blocks, and possible outcomes. What I haven’t seen much of is why one choice is potentially better than the other. This spread can be expanded to include more choices!

Change Direction Spread

This is for when you absolutely CANNOT keep moving in the same direction and you MUST make a choice.

1) self/situation

2) first alternative option.  What changes you can make in this direction

3) positive aspects of this choice

4) negative aspects of this choice

5) second alternative option.  What changes you can make in this direction

6) positive aspects of this choice

7) negative aspects of this choice


The Triforce. This is a three card spread that can be done as a six card spread for additional information.

2. Power: What Power do you need to overcome this challenge? This card is what you actually need to do in order to reach an outcome.

3. Wisdom: Where will Wisdom guide you in your quest? This is the potential future outlook on the situation.

Secondary cards:

4. The Hero / Link: The Hero’s journey is always a tough one, but one that can be overcome. Link represents the readee in this reading - what you are doing and what you need to be doing.

5. The Adversary : The greatest challenge and hardship to overcome is the Adversary. What could potentially go wrong, be done wrong, or what is hurting you is described in this card.

6. The Goddess : The Hero never journey’s alone, but instead with allies who guide him. This card represents outside influences that you can or should turn to.

7-Card Past Life Tarot/Oracle Spread 


So here is the meanings:

  1. Past Life Symbolism: This represents your past life, it is the symbol of it. Now, that does not mean that it is to be read. If you know of a past life and it tells you of it, it might makes sense to you, but in most cases, it does not* (see littlestcrouton's write-up). It's to be symbolistic, not so much literal.
  2. Past Life Purpose: As expected, this card is to represent the reason that you were born into the life, the lesson(s) that you were meant to learn. 
  3. Past Life Progression: This particular card tells you how you went about your life. It is the overall key to who you were or what you were. (IE) You were rich, you were humble, generous, jealous…etc
  4. Past Life Action: This card represents how you accomplished or went about completing your past life lessons. Specifically, if you did and how, or if you did not and why. Your card should be able to tell you (even if you are orthodox reader) both answers, if not, it will be explained in card 5. 
  5. Unresolved Karmic Lesson: This card is about what you were not able to achieve in this live. This is the card that might be affecting your current or other past lives in succession to the one in the spread. This tells you what went wrong in terms of things that you were not able to learn and is carried onto other lives.
  6. Resolved Karmic Lesson: This card tells the reader what positive and uplifting lessons were learned. This can be a good or bad experience that was learned, but in the long run it made you better or led to a better life. It may also not be the original purpose, but it served a greater purpose in your karmic pattern.
  7. High Karmic Energy: This card symbolizes the good and positive energy or karma that travels with you in your life. It is skills learned that you will carry with you onto other lives that will better the ones after.
