This is a really general Tarot spread, but it is important to do a spread like this every month or so. By checking in with yourself and all the different aspects of your life, you are allowing Tarot to help you get everything you need from the universe.

Go into this spread with an open mind. Take a moment to clear your mind before doing this spread, letting go of any worries and concerns. Then, shuffle the deck and draw six cards.

Card One: Spiritual Guidance

The first card pulled reflects any spiritual guidance the Tarot has for you right now. Spirituality is extremely important for us in order to live a fulfilling life, and this card will reveal to you if you need to put more effort into your spirituality. It may also show you areas of spirituality that are useful for you to explore.

The three-card reading is also an option if you want a quick and simple spread. This gives an accurate answer, but I’ll leave it to you to decide how deep you want to go on your journey and how much guidance you’re seeking.

You can extend this reading to four cards with an additional qualifying card, but if it isn’t painting a clear path for you, I’d suggest taking the time with the complete spread.

Asking the Tarot: What Should I Focus on Right Now?

The guidance Tarot spread above examines all the different aspects of your life. However, you may wish to ask the Tarot: what should I focus on right now?

Shuffle the deck, ask the question, and draw a card. Take time to reflect on this card and how you connect to it. If it is a card in the Suit of Pentacles, we can see that work should be your main focus. Similarly, a card in the Suit of Cups suggests that love, friendship, and emotions should be your focus.

If you need to, draw one or two more cards to clarify what the Tarot is telling you.
