6 Card Dream Interpretation Tarot Spread

Use the following tarot spread to analyze your dreams on a deeper level, to untangle reoccurring dreams or enrich your dream work.

Roughly six years of your life will be spent dreaming.  The amount time you dwell in the surreal world of your unconscious mind makes it as important as the world of your waking life.

If you have a choice of decks, select one with surreal or dreamlike symbolism.  I chose the strange and beautiful Ceccoli Tarot deck, which I fell in love with on my recent trip to Salem, Massachusetts.  The hypnagogic quality of the imagery in this deck fits nicely with the theme of dream interpretation.

Position 1:  Your Waking Life.  This card symbolizes how the events, emotions and conscious thoughts in your waking life underlie your dream life.

Position 2:  The Primary Message.  This card represents what the spirit world is trying to communicate to you through your dreams.  If you are reading for yourself, try using as much objectivity as possible.  Often, we dream about things we don’t want to acknowledge consciously, which sometimes makes this card difficult to confront.

Position 3:  The Bridge.  Stands for the link between your conscious mind and your unconscious mind.  Concentrate for as long as necessary before leaping to any conclusions about this card.  Untangling your conscious mind from your deeper reality challenges even the most self-aware person.  Take your time.

Position 4:  Your “assignment.”  Look to this card for a message about what actions to take in your life to remedy any blockages that cause reoccurring themes in your dreams or prevent you from moving forward into a higher plane of thinking.

Position 5:What to meditate on before falling asleep.  The time just before falling asleep is a period of heightened sensitivity for meditationLook for messages or themes to focus on during this period to enhance your dream experience.

Position 6: What to look for in your future dreams.  This card signifies upcoming themes in your dreams to watch out for and pay careful attention to.

Free Will of Fate Tarot Spread

In my last post, we discussed the concept of the “Free Will of Fate.”

Discussion is one thing, practical application is another.  So I decided to show you a simple Tarot spread that applies this principle in the practice of divination.

Untitled-1

Position 1:  The Crossroads.  This position represents the figurative place you are in right now.  Before you, you face a decision with two options.  This decision may be a major life decision (like whether or not to get married right now) or not (like whether to eat that muffin.)

Position 2:  Represents the first step on the first optional road you could take from Position 1.  By now, the decision is made, you chose left instead of right, and this will determine your course.

Position 3:  Represents an obstacle on this path.

Position 4:  Represents someone or something that will help you along your way on this path.

Position 5:  Represents the first step on the second optional road you could take from Position 1.  By now, the decision is made, you chose right instead of left, and this will determine your course.

Position 6:  Represents an obstacle on this path.

Position 7:  Represents someone or something that will help you along your way on this path.

Position 8:  Final outcome.  Lesson learned.  The point of this spread is that you will arrive at your destination no matter how you chose to get there.  This idea is both liberating and difficult for the controlling nature of the human condition.

I hope you enjoyed this new spread, and add it to your repertoire!

Relationship Spread: Group Dynamics in the Workplace

This spread specifically addresses one the most important aspects of your working environment: your relationship with your co-workers.  Sometimes referred to as “office politics,” the complex interactions you have with the people you work with are arguably more vital to your career success than any other single factor, including education, experience and work ethic.

Fair?  No.  But it’s the reality.

Finding insight here can be extraordinarily valuable to your long-term career path.

Untitled-1

Position 1:  Represents whomever or whatever you are beholden to at work.  Most typically, this card represents a supervisor.  But even if you work for yourself, everyone must answer to someone: customers, a property management company, the IRS.

Position 2:  This card represents you (or the querent).

Position 3:  Represents your relationship to your supervisor (or whatever).  When you draw a card for this position, what does it tell you?  Don’t expect an obvious answer.  The Lovers might represent an inappropriate love interest with your superior, or the Ten of Cups could indicate a familial relationship.

Position 4:  This card represents a subordinate.  If you have no subordinate, substitute whatever you are responsible for or in charge of.  Everyone has a key responsibility at work.

Position 5:  Represents your relationship the people or things you are responsible for.

Position 6:  Both position 6 and 8 represent co-workers or equals in the workplace.  If you have no co-workers, you may either omit these cards, or substitute peripheral factors in your work environment.

Position 7:  Represents your relationship to #6.

Position 8:  See Position 6.

Position 9:  Represents your relationship to #8.
