From time to time, when I’m at a pivot point or cross roads, I do a reading to help me make decisions.
Asking a closed question requiring a yes or no answer is not the best question to pose, nor is a question that starts with ‘should’. So, to help with decision making I designed the following 3-card spread. It’s based on a standard Situation, Advice, Outcome spread but I find the slightly amended wording poses the question in a more relevant way for me, and I get a better reading as a result.
When I think of decision making, the suit that comes to mind is Swords, and for me the King, Queen and 2 of Swords in particular. These cards are from the fantastic Legacy of the Divine Tarot deck by Ciro Marchetti.
The layout came to me one day while eating lunch and I originally wrote it down on a serviette from the cafe, but I have now typed it up it so you can download it and do for yourself.
- Please give me insight into the situation
- Which path/option do you recommend I take?
- What is the likely outcome if I go that way?
The song that was going through my mind at the time in the cafe was by Fat Boy Slim. As songs do from time to time, I heard the tune in my head just at random and out of the blue. The lyrics feel perfect for when you’re at a pivot point and need to make a decision “Right Here, Right Now”.
I’d love to hear how you have used the spread.
