## What's my problem? A Tarot spread

How do you know that you are solving the right problem, or even a real problem? It matters how you ask the question for a tarot reading.

**Short diversion:** Before solving a problem, it is important to define the problem carefully. This is to ensure you are:

- solving the right problem,
- solving the real problem, and it also
- helps you solve the problem.

Suppose you and your partner are having a lot of arguments lately.

You could ask, "Will my partner and I break up?"

But the *right* problem could be better defined as, "Why are we arguing so much?"

You might even wonder, "Is this even a *real* problem?"

If you already know the reason you are arguing, you don't have a problem, except perhaps how to help your partner relax in his/her new job. In this case the problem will disappear once his anxieties are out of the way.

This new spread will help you determine what the real problem is, and also leads to a solution.

*[This spread was first published in SynTAROTis.]*

The first triangle in the spread (cards 1 to 3) examines the problem closely, while the second triangle (cards 4 to 6) looks at what you want to achieve by solving the problem.

- What is the problem?
- Why is this a problem?
- What, although it might seem to be, is
part of the problem?**not** - What will happen if I do nothing?
- What do I want?
- How do I get it?

Let me know if it works for you!
