I’ve created several tarot spreads for ‘getting out of a rut’:
- This one is for tapping into your confidence.
- This one is for tackling procrastination.
- This one is for clearing out your junk so you can start afresh.
Somehow, none of these were quite what I needed when I wrote last week about being stuck in a rut. All sorts of interesting things were happning in my life…and yet somehow I wasn’t energised, wasn’t excited. I didn’t actually feel like doing anything. Which is really frickin’ unlike me.
I needed something quick. I needed a kick up the ass.
So I made this little spread and it sorted me right out. The first card is your mojo, hiding somewhere. The second card is what’s getting in the way, blocking your energy. The third card is your RIGHT NOW card – an action you can do right away to begin the unblocking process and get yourself outta that damn rut.
Find your mojo tarot spread:
Firstly, divide your cards into majors and minors. Shuffle the two piles separately.
Draw the first card from your major pile. Then lay cards two and three from the minor pile:
MAJOR: Here’s your mojo, hiding
MINOR: Here’s what’s getting in the way.
MINOR: Here’s your solution. DO THIS NOW!
1. Here’s my mojo: The Chariot.
Well yes. Powerful motion. That’s my birth card, that’s my card for this year, that’s absolutely 100% where I wanna be – powering forwards with clarity, focus, speed and determination. There’s a lot I want to achieve this summer – The Chariot is totally my mojo.
2. Here’s what’s getting in the way: Two of Pentacles.
This came up last week when my friend gave me a powerful Thoth reading, underlying everything. I’ve got too much going on, and I’m not juggling well. Instead, I’m retreating. The balancing act in the Two of Pentacles simply isn’t working – the charioteer doesn’t know which way to go.
3. Solition – DO THIS NOW: Six of Swords.
Ha! This made me laugh. I’m gonna take this card completely literally because I actually completely know what I need to do to regain my mojo. Here’s someone being carried across a lake to a new shore? So I’m gonna move my boat. I know so well that the mooring I’m in now is oppressive, depressing and downright gross. I need a change of scene.
And you know what? It worked! It’s a week since the reading and the move, and since that day I’ve found my sense of clarity return. The change of scenery has reinvigorated me, the new sense of space around me at the new spot inspired a little list-making, a little shelving and back-burner placing, and a lot of tick-tick-ticking. Perfect.
I’m a 30-something writer, artist, tarot reader, and perpetual explorer of the space between thought, feeling, and action.
I believe that spirituality and ritual are for everybody. I’m about the journey, in all of its messy, non-linear, chaotic iterations. I am excited by anticapitalist business and living with my whole entire self present. I use tarot cards to bring forth hidden truth, and ritual to affirm my commitment, over and over, to my ever-shifting path.
