I'm not sure what Saskia does, but this happens when I pull a card and then put in back in the deck -- reshuffle -- and pull out the next card. I like this method; it's very eerie how often you pick up the same card twice in one reading!

One question tho' are you supposed to just shuffle and pull the first 8 cards, or do you re-shuffle for each question?
Thanks . And that's pretty cool! And slightly creepy lol. That Ace of Wands is clearly trying to tell you a message that's very important for you to hear.

Personally, I reshuffle for each question. But that's just how I like to do things with most readings when I'm not lazy lol. Plus, it forces me to write the cards down in my journal because you need to make note of what you pulled. But you should do whatever makes you feel comfortable.

Hi Michellehihi, as this spread didn't have lay-out positions, I treated each question as a new one-card reading, i.e. shuffled and pulled again.

I love the idea of this one, I have saved this for later! Sometimes it can be too easy to turn to tarot when we are worried or in distressed about something.

Tried it =)


I tried this spread today and I must admit, it helped. I still have many fears regarding my life and my future (especially when it comes to relationships) but this helped me see a ray of hope at the end of the spread.

Here goes the link if you want to give a look. Stay well

I love this! I will probably journal about each question first and then use the cards to comment on and expand what I've written.

I might also use GreatDane's reading method for this one and put the card back into the deck after I've read on each question, so I am always choosing from the whole deck and there is the possibility of a card coming up for more than one of these questions.

Great idea for a tarot spread, thanks!

This spread is exactly what I needed. Thought I was going to tear up at the first card (Strength. asdfghjdhajkssdfg) I've been having a rough time lately with myself and this just... Delightful spread. I'll definitely have to do a proper write up later of this over in my readings!

I'm glad you guys like it!

Whenever I'm feeling down in the dumps, I pull this spread out and it makes me feel loads better. So happy to share that same feeling of relief with you all
