Tarot Spread: Pride and Love

Tarot Spreads (2)

A tarot spread created to celebrate and empower queer folks of all shapes and sizes and to help us learn to build our resilience in a world that doesn’t always allow us to speak and live our truth.  

1

1 – Red – something to celebrate
2 – Orange – something to heal
3 – Yellow – something that brings happiness
4 – Green – something to seek in the world
5 – Blue – somewhere to focus energy
6 – Indigo – a way to help my community
7 – Violet – a way to build resilience
8 – Pink – a message from the heart

This spread was based on the colors of the original rainbow pride flag created by Gilbert Baker in 1978.  In his flag each color had a meaning.  Pink for sexuality, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for nature, blue for magic and art, indigo for serenity and harmony, and violet for spirit.

I’ve designed this spread in the shape of a rainbow, drawing inspiration from these symbolic colors and aimed towards empowering queer folks.  If you like it and you find it useful I’m hoping you’ll consider making a small donation to the One Orlando Fund which was created to provide much needed support to the victims of the Pulse tragedy and their families.

Elemental Guidance Tarot Spread

Tarot Spreads (2)

This spread grew out of a desire to find the perfect spread to read for a friend who was looking for some guidance around her own personal development.  I wanted to be able to give her the best help that I could, and I realized that none of the spreads I was looking through were quite what I wanted.

I thought that if I could tap into something larger than myself I would be able to give her much more, so I asked for some guidance from a guide that I know she feels strongly connected to.  This was helpful for her case, but I thought it would be a great idea to have a more open spread that anyone could use who was seeking a little more guidance.

Thus the Elemental Guidance spread was born.  There are places for each of the elements and then right in the center of it all, there is a card for Spirit.  This card can represent a deity of your choice, a higher power, nature, anything that you identify as something that can help guide you.  I encourage you to create some space for yourself before you use this spread and invite your deity/guide/higher self to join you in this reading and to lend you their advice.

So, without further ado, here is the Elemental Guidance spread:

Elemental Guidance

  1. Earth: something to ground you
  2. Water: something to comfort you
  3. Fire: something to inspire you
  4. Air: something to challenge you
  5. Spirit: something to guide you.To make it easier for you to try this reading I’m including some download links.  You can view this in google docs or download a PDF.  However you use it, I’d love to hear how it worked for you!  Feel free to leave me a comment or send me an email.
