Temperance Tarot Spread
This spread is for creative issues, the art and alchemy of things.
Shuffle the deck and lay out the cards per the diagram at right.
Card 1: This card represents the inspired you, ideas or a goal, or ways to renew your creativity, a different way of looking at things.
Cards 2 and 3: Card 2 represents the fire, and card 3 the water, the two elements that go into your work, a central tension and theme to explore.
Card 4: This card is the solid base, your knowledge and learning, training and past experience, the technical skills that will go into this.
Card 5: This card represents the deep draughts of water through your roots, the connection to soul, and numinous experiences. This is the part of the process where things go under for a while, mostly unknown to you, to resurface later cleansed and energized and shining. This process cannot be controlled or forced, but it can be nourished.
