If you have ever visited this site before, you will know that I am always changing things around and finding new ways of doing things. So, a new spread…..

Here is  a Tarot Spread based on  the The Six Directions.

The six directions are North, South, East, West, Great Mother Earth and Great Spirit Sky.

I lay the cards out – one card for each direction. Now I hasten to add, this is my particular way of doing this and other people may have different ideas:

  1. East, air, mental faculty. thought
  2. South, fire, sexuality, passion, drive
  3. West, water, emotions, feelings
  4. North, earth, physicality, the body
  5. Great Mother – connection to the Earth
  6. Father Sky – connection to Great Spirit 

The Six Directions Tarot Spread

Here is a practical example of the spread:

I have been wondering for a while, given the general economic situation, together with the fact that I like the idea, about bartering tarot readings. So with this idea in mind I drew the cards for the Six Directions:
