For the goths out there!
"Which is Right for Me?" Spread
- The Choice- These cards represent the choices the querent is deciding between. They can be chosen from the deck before hand or laid out with the other cards.
- Why this Choice is Better - These cards go into why this particular choice (a or b) is better than the other one.
- How to Execute - This card suggests how to follow through with the choice (a or b).
- Outcome - The possible outcome of following card 3 for that choice (a or b).
The “a” path is one of the choices and the follow through. The “b” path is the other choice and the follow through for that one. Most choice spreads go into how to execute, possible blocks, and possible outcomes. What I haven’t seen much of is why one choice is potentially better than the other.
This spread can be expanded to include more choices! Here is an example.

The Self-Healing Tarot Spread can be a powerful tool for exploring our past traumas that may be preventing us from growing in the present. It does this by exploring the areas in our lives that remain fixed. These are the circumstances that occurred in our past that remain unresolved and remain as emotional blocks. Often, these are the scars that we carry from painful experiences from our past that shape how we perceive the world and interrelate with those around us. If you find yourself in repetitive painful relationships for example, the Self Healing Tarot Spread can help to identify the cause as well as provide a path towards healing, growth and spiritual awareness.
When attempting this tarot spread, it’s always important to be aware of your surroundings. You want to make sure that you are in an environment where you feel safe and relaxed. It’s also important that you have allotted enough time to practice this tarot spread without any interruption. Be sure to give yourself time for introspection and to process through any emotions or memories that may come up during your tarot reading.
First Card – What is my greatest emotional block, trauma or issue from the past that is preventing me from moving forward?
Second Card – How has my emotional block affected my past relationships?
Third Card – How is my emotional block currently affecting my personal growth and my relationships with others in the present?
Fourth Card – What new things about myself can be learned from this exploration?
Fifth Card – What actions, emotional or otherwise, can I take to get past my emotional blocks to encourage growth and self-healing?
Sixth Card – What is the guiding spiritual lesson I have learned through this exploration?
