Index of creativity and reflection tarot spreads (updated 11 May 2022)

The Sceptic's Tarot is about using tarot cards for creative problem solving, creativity, reflection, and journaling. I have created both spreads and techniques that can be used for these purposes.

My creativity techniques use the cards as tools to inspire thoughts and ideas.

My creativity spreads, on the other hand, are read the way any other tarot spread is read (with a twist here and there), but are designed to solve problems, create, self-reflect, and journal.

(Many of these links still point to SynTAROTis.)
