How do I get what I want? Asking the cards for guidance

Now that you've clarified what your problems are (remember the "Tell me what my problem is and how to solve it" article?), you may wonder how to get what you want.

The Sceptic's Tarot has several spreads designed to help you solve problems but only one for making a wish (and it's a short one).

So I created a more extensive spread for guidance. I'm pleased the spread worked out to seven cards, as seven is the number for reflection!

The spread's shape lets you get closer and closer to your wish.

Find a quiet and comfortable space to focus on your thoughts, shuffle your deck, and draw seven cards when you feel ready.

  1. What do I want?
  2. Why do I want it?
  3. How do I get it?
  4. Who or what can help?
  5. What is standing in my way?
  6. What strength can I rely on to help me?
  7. What should I do next?

Let me know if this spread worked for you!
