Oh dear, I appear to have made another spread for broken hearts. There’s so many out there already, but last night I found myself in need of a spread that dealt with how to get over it and move past the pain, and I was too far from my (powered down) laptop and too lazy to put in the effort to get it and find one of those many spreads.

So instead I just made a new spread, which I’ll share with you now! Note that when I talk about healing, I’m not talking about ~*~Healing~*~ and this spread may not enable you to truly work through every single issue, especially on one try. But it should hopefully help put you on a path to being able to function without overwhelming pain.

Card One is what your heart needs in order for you to recover. (As an example, the card pulled last night, from the Energy Oracle, was “Caring Connections”)

Card Two is where you can find what it is your heart needs. This is to give you a lead on where to look, and may give you some clues and signs to recognize it when you’ve found it.

Card Three is the biggest issue you need to resolve or work through in order to heal. There’s usually a lot of damage done by a broken heart, but this is the key to being able to move on.

Card Four is what to let go of in order to let yourself heal and go forward in your life. This may be a mindset you’re clinging to, it may be plans you’ve made, it may even be a person. But cutting this loose will free you to move forward on the path to healing.

Card Five is what you should learn from your pain. I included this because people feel better when they can look at a bad experience and say, “Well, at least I learned something.” But we sometimes take the wrong messages away from our experiences, which leaves us with even more issues to work out later, so this will help show you what you should actually see as your lesson.

Card Six is what a mended heart will look like for you. It’s kind of hard to describe exactly what this position is — it’s how you’ll feel when you’ve followed the path. It’s how you’ll look at yourself and others. It’s what you’ll want to take into yourself and what you’ll want to give back.

The Energy Oracle reading last night gave us the Cornucopia card in this position — a heart that is full, and gives unconditionally so that others can be nourished and full as well. A heart of plenty, that isn’t constantly seeking to be filled by others.

But for you, maybe your healing looks like the Nine of Wands — patched up, but guarded. Or Strength — a heart that stays calm under pressure, and keeps you going even when you think it shouldn’t. Gentle, but unyielding. 

NOTE that if you get the Three of Swords in this final position (or whatever your deck’s equivalent may be), you should lay out the spread again — there’s more issues to be dealt with in order to move forward than what the spread could initially cover. So you’ll have two times the cards (and some cards in the second reading may expand on cards in the first reading, but others will likely deal with new, separate issues).

mysticdivination:

Taken from the Housewives Tarot.
If you enjoy airing dirty laundry in public, this is the layout for you. Grab a friend and conduct this reading in the laundry room, or wherever you keep your clothesline. Have plenty of clothespins on hand (the spring-close time work best) as well as a basket of wet, clean laundry in need of drying.
Ask your friend to shuffle the deck, then remove one card and use a clothespin to hang it from the clothesline. Repeat six times until there is a total of seven cards hanging on the line. After you decipher each card, instruct your friend to hang one wet garment on the clothesline. (When you’ve finished the reading, your friend can thank you by hanging the remaining clothes to dry.)
This card represents your state of mind.
This card represents difficulties.
This card deals with career and communication.
This card represents romance and emotional relationships.
The card deals with home and family matters.
This card represents your unconscious foundation.
This card reveals your future or possible outcome.
Though it is not necessary to perform this reading on laundry day, it does make for a more efficient use of your time.
