you know, i JUST made it.
not more then 10 minutes ago since i wrote a bit about the first card of the spread. it will be some time before i am finished with it, a few days at least.

it is from Christine Jettes book "Tarot shadow work" and it is in the shape of a star.

something like this:


so 6 cards and she writes a lot about each place but here are the keywords:

1, Denial
2, Anxiety
3, Inferiority
4, Anger
5, Secrecy
6, Self-loathing

at least it is a start. there is a thread for it in this forum too. where you can see how others did. but i do recommend getting the book

I'm sorry aeonx! I meant to post that, but I got distracted. Jema's right. The book is good because it gives you the "alternate shadow meanings" for each card. I think the explanations would be hard to arrive at if you only used traditional tarot meanings.

Christine Jette used the Major Arcana to do the Star of Discovery Spread in Tarot Shadow Work although she wrote a later paper, available on the Tarot Passages web site, suggesting that beginners could use all cards.

I prefer using the Major Arcana as those cards represent major themes.
