A Journey Tarot Spread

shadowscapes tarot shamanic journey tarot spread

A Journey is featured in the Shadowscapes Tarot Companion Book and was inspired by the 8 of Cups and the Hermit for their themes of journeying, moving on or looking for something that is missing.

This immediately had me thinking about the shamanic practice of soul retrieval, which I’d read about earlier this year. Sandra Ingerman describes soul retrieval the following way:

“It is believed that whenever we suffer an emotional or physical trauma a part of our soul flees the body in order to survive the experience.”

You can imagine how my mind went into overdrive piecing all this information together.

Karmic Bitch-slap Tarot Spread

Guest post by Zorian Cross
This spread was created about a couple of years ago. I was dumped by a guy I was having a long distant relationship with. He had issues regarding commitment and claimed I was suffocating him and he needed his space (he was two continents apart from me, how much space did he need?). So in a fiery fit of rage, I turned to my cards and began organically pulling cards one after another, asking questions randomly. While doing so, some of the cards revealed such cheeky yet witty answers to those questions that I couldn’t help but laugh out loud. So hard I laughed, I could feel the tears of joy falling down my cheeks.
