The Decision-Making Spread

The Decision-Making Spread is a six-card Tarot spread designed to provide comprehensive guidance on a specific decision or choice you need to make. It offers insights into different aspects of the decision-making process, helping you weigh the pros and cons, consider potential outcomes, and make an informed choice. Hereโ€™s how the spread works:

  1. The Question or Intention: Before laying out the cards, set a clear intention or ask a specific question related to the decision you need to make. This intention or question will guide the interpretation of the spread.
  2. Card 1: The Issue at Hand: The first card represents the current situation or issue that needs to be addressed or resolved. It provides insight into the root cause of the decision you need to make, helping to frame the context for the spread.
  3. Card 2: The Pro: The second card represents the positive aspects of the decision youโ€™re considering. It highlights the benefits or opportunities that may arise, guiding you on what you stand to gain.
  4. Card 3: The Con: The third card represents the potential challenges or drawbacks of the decision. It offers insight into what risks or losses may occur, helping you understand what you stand to lose.
  5. Card 4: The Advice: The fourth card provides guidance or advice on how to approach the decision. It can offer insights into the steps needed to overcome challenges, achieve goals, or take balanced action.
  6. Card 5: The Outcome: The fifth card reflects the potential outcome or result of the decision. It offers insight into what may happen if you make the decision, providing a glimpse into the longer-term consequences.

How to Use the Spread:

  • Layout: Arrange the six cards in a line or a cross pattern, depending on preference. You can then interpret them individually or in relation to each other.
  • Interpretation: Begin by addressing the question or intention that guided the spread. Then, interpret each card in relation to its position, gaining insights into the situation, benefits, challenges, advice, and potential outcome.
  • Holistic View: Finally, view the spread as a whole to gain a comprehensive understanding of the decision-making process, allowing for balanced and informed choices.

The Decision-Making Spread provides a holistic approach to decision-making, offering guidance on the pros, cons, advice, and outcomes related to a specific choice. By understanding and weighing each aspect, you can navigate your decisions more confidently and clearly.
