I don’t usually see single card draws as a spread, but here’s a neat way to rethink the single card draw and put a twist in your reading using just one card. I’m always a fan of single card draws and if your in a funk with your tarot practice, try this out! It may be just the thing you need to get back your card slinging mojo! I do this method often when I pull a card for my day but you can use it in any question or situation.
First, grab a deck! It must be a standard format tarot deck, no oracle decks for this. The deck must have the standard Major Arcana, Courts, and Minor Arcana.
As you shuffle the deck, focus your intention with the question “What is the energy, attitude to adopt, or action to take today?” – then pull a card!
If you pulled a…
• Major Arcana – this is the energy or theme of the day
• Court Card – this is the attitude you need to adopt today
• Minor Arcana – this is the action you need to take today (also with Ace’s, taking the action of allowing yourself to be open to gifts and potential, etc)
The other morning I pulled the 3 of Swords, so this told me it was an action needed today:
“Remove those swords, slap a bandaid on your wounds and look to a brighter day. I know this seems way easier said than can be done, but try your best to not let any mental anguish affect your day. Keeping your head in a rain clouded space will only have you focusing on the negative things that may show up in your day, it makes it difficult to see any good happening. It’s the first day of the week, don’t allow these feelings to dictate how your week will go.”
Let me know below if you try this method and how it worked for you!
