Let’s face it – we usually consult a Tarot reader when we are going through a period of change – or want things to change. We may have come out of a relationship, want to move house, change jobs or just feel we have hit a plateau and want to know what will happen next. Sound familiar? The great thing about the Tarot is that it is designed for people either going through changes or wanting to make them. People often want to know if they are making the right decision, what options they have and what would be the likely outcome of their choice.
If you are in a situation where you are either going through changes that have been forced on you – relationship/job loss, or else want to make changes but wonder what your next step will be, then this Tarot technique is for you! As always, have your trusty Tarot journal to hand when doing this exercise so you can refer back to it later.
Spread your cards out in front of you face down. Spend a few moments centering yourself and tuning yourself into your cards energetically. Then when you are ready, pick five cards at random, just following your gut feelings. Don’t worry – your higher self will guide you to the right cards! Lay the cards out in a row.
Here is what the cards mean:
1st Card: What you are leaving behind – or more importantly – what you think you are leaving behind. Look carefully at this card especially if it is a Court card. Don’t forget – this can represent an aspect of yourself you feel you are letting go of if it’s not an actual person.
2nd Card: What you are really leaving behind. This can be a mindset as opposed to an actual person or situation. Perhaps you want to take action to manifest more abundance or money into your life. The card that appears could show you letting go of a poverty mentality. As millionaire Mike Todd once said: ‘I’ve been broke but I’ve never been poor. Being broke is temporary. Being poor is a state of mind.’ If you’re seeking a new relationship the card could show you how to open up to love. Be open to what this card tells you.
3rd, 4th and 5th Cards: This is the power part of this spread. These cards represent three choices ahead of you. These are your points of power. Spend time with these cards. Look at what they represent in terms of your goals and how you can get there. Write down whatever comes to you in your Tarot journal and don’t just limit yourself to the traditional interpretations of these cards. No matter how ‘out there’ the insights appear to be at the time, chances are you will see that you are being given valuable information later.
Go over what you have written over the next few days and add anything else that comes to you. Be open for signs an synchronicities that echo the messages you received via your 3rd, 4th and 5th cards as these can really be guiding you to take a particular path. Above all be aware that ultimately every path we take results in soul growth and there are no wrong choices.
We can often feel trapped in a situation because we feel we have no choices available to us. This results in disempowerment. The wonderful gift of this spread it that no matter our circumstances, it shows us we do have choices available, giving us back our power to create a better life for ourselves. Thanks to the gift of the Tarot you really DO have the power!

I’ve been creating my Knight-Waite tarot deck for three years.
It has been such a labour of love, I can’t wait to unleash it!
It will launch in 2023, but why not take a little sneak peek at the cards below?
