Personal Growth Spread

 

This in-depth 8-card layout shows various aspects of your personal journey. It is good for exploring generalized personal questions, but can also be used to explore relationships if the couple is viewed as a whole.

This spread progresses through 8 stages similar to the tarot deck's Major Arcana, beginning with birth and the area of fertility. After birth comes the initial growth which leads to a period of adaptation, change, and re-balancing oneself. Once the process has grown enough, security comes into focus, as it is necessary to protect what we've earned. After this, once again growth is important, but on the level of the mind and creativitity this time, leading to another phase of personal changes. Finally upon completion of the journey, the rewards become evident, and beyond that the person's spiritual development can also be noticed.

Spread Positions
