What if I do nothing? Tarot spread

Ever had a problem you couldn’t solve? Duh, of course you have! Some problems can put you in a maze: you keep going, but you get nowhere.

When you face such a problem, try this: pause, take a deep breath, and ask: “What if I do nothing?”

It might sound paradoxical, but doing nothing is a valid option when you are trying to solve a problem. At the very least, consider doing nothing and seeing where that takes you.

Here is a spread that might help. It explores three potential solutions for the problem (the more the merrier!), one of which is doing nothing.

Spread 6-card pyramid

  1. My problem is …
  2. What do I want to achieve?
  3. What is my intention?
  4. If I do this …
  5. On the other hand, if I do that …
  6. But what if I do nothing at all?
