The Chariot Tarot Spread
This spread is to help focus on a goal.
Shuffle the deck and lay out the cards per the diagram at right.
Card 1: This card represents you and your personality, which dictates what kinds of risks you usually take, whether you are cautious or careless, and affects how high you usually set your goals. You are perfectly capable of achieving more, if you so desire, but be aware that the effort may be greater, or that some changes in your current mode of thinking may be required.
Card 2: This card represents your goal, what you are focusing on, or an aspect of that goal you hadn't considered. Is this really what you want?
Cards 3, 4 and 5: These cards are the things you have, resources upon which to draw, things or people that can help. Also things that you will need to achieve your goal.
Cards 6 and 7: These represent a tempered version of the goal, a reality check. They represent what is possible, and a concrete way to make it happen, a step to the goal. Can be problems that will be met and need to be overcome, or things to watch out for and prepare for.
When you have read all the cards, look at them all together. Are the steps to your goal in order? Lay them out so that they are, from you to your goal. Maybe you find the goal itself is not in the right place. Rearrange them so they make sense to you, not necessarily in a straight line, but however it takes to get you there.
