I woke up with the inspiration to create the tarot spread I’m about to share with you today: The Fortune-telling Experiment Tarot Spread. You may be wondering if it is even possible to see around the bend. Can you predict the future, pick up on incoming events or a new person coming into your life? Well, it is possible and if you’re any good at it, you can make a living from it. So how do you get from being a Tarot beginner to charging for divination services?
You test yourself regularly. And no, this Tarot spread that I’m about to share with you is not the only way to test yourself. As long as you use a journal to document your readings and your daily draw, you can analyse your progress.
However, journalling this Fortune-telling Experiment Tarot Spread on a weekly, ongoing basis is one of the best ways I can think of. I did my first reading in 1985. This is the Tarot spread that I wish I’d known about back then.
If you practice weekly with this Tarot spread, it will take you from beginner to intermediate in about three months. I also recommend doing your daily draw and relating each card to the main theme in your week ahead reading. First, look at the card in its own right and take some notes. Then make some notes about how you feel it relates to the weekly theme card. This way, you keep the week ahead reading fresh in your mind throughout the week.
Why a Weekly Spread for This Experiment?
A week at the time is short enough to not be overwhelming. You can keep the reading fresh in your memory without straining yourself. It also makes it easier to evaluate your progress for learning purposes. Though, for sure, you can choose another time frame if you prefer. The important part is to remain consistent.
You may, for instance, wish to do two of these readings in a week: one for Mon-Fri and a second spread for the weekend. However, I recommend sticking to doing a weekly reading. This is a heavy-duty spread, packed with information and you don’t want to put yourself in a state of guidance overwhelm.
So make a weekly date with yourself and create sacred space for the reading. See it as a time for self-care, contemplation and reflection. This is not a mundane practice since seeing the future requires the opening of the higher chakras. Treat it as the sacred experience it is and always set the intention to only channel through information for the Highest Good.
The Fortune-telling Experiment Tarot Spread
- Main theme in the week ahead
- General guidance regarding this theme
- Focus less on this regarding the theme
- Focus more on this regarding the general theme
- An upcoming event or influx of energy I need to be aware of (Make notes on both possibilities but try to discern if it is more of an event or an energy shift)
- How this upcoming event relates to the main theme
- General guidance regarding this event
- Focus less on this to make the most of the incoming energy
- Focus more on this to make the most of the event/energy
- BONUS CARD 1: This is ending in the week ahead (Only use the final two cards if it’s not likely to cause overwhelm. An alternative use of this card is Shadow/Plot Twist)
- BONUS CARD 2: This is beginning now (You can use this card as a bonus ‘Outcome’ card regarding the upcoming event if you prefer)
While a specific event is easier to evaluate, not every week is going to bring something for you to evaluate this way. But every week will bring a shift in energy. Pay attention right at the start of the week and see what you notice. Do this without using the cards and just by tuning in. You can even request your spirit team to fine-tune your antenna for this purpose.
Please be aware that sometimes this shift can be more subtle. So stay alert. Mainly though, when the cards point more to an energy shift than to an event, it will be about a bigger energy shift, often one that concerns the collective.
