Personal Growth Spread

 

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

This spread progresses through eight stages similar to the tarot deck's Major Arcana, beginning with birth and the realm 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 has been earned. After this, once again growth is important, but concerning 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, one's spiritual development level will have noticeably risen.

Spread Positions

  1. Beginnings, fertility, and birth
  2. Growth, flow, and energy
  3. Changes, polarities, and balance
  4. Protection and defense
  5. Learning, art, and creativity
  6. Change and metamorphosis
  7. Completion, rewards, and luck
  8. Inner strength and spiritual guidance
