Interview your Deck Spread

Interview your Deck Spread: Have you ever brought a new Tarot or Oracle Card Deck and, after using it a couple times, felt like you just couldn’t connect with it? Maybe you didn’t like the imagery, or perhaps you didn’t resonate with the messaging? I have.

But since using this spread to get to know the energy of a Deck before I use it has enabled me to understand its synergy and how best I can incorporate it into my spiritual practice – it also helps me best pair it with my other decks, because who doesn’t love using different decks together! Right?!

Using this spread to essentially interview a new card Deck, whether Tarot or Oracle, will help you gain insight into how you and the Deck will vibe, and will expand your understanding of Holistic Tarot!!

Tarot Spreads to Balance the Chakras – Muladhara Chakra

Chakra Balancing spreadUsing your Tarot cards to understand the health and energetic state of your Chakras is an easy and quick wellness tool, especially if you’re just learning about your Chakras.

The Tarot (or Oracle Cards) offers great insight and guidance to all areas of your life, mind, body, and spirit, and when used in this way as a tool for overall wellness and introspection, you’re not only receiving insight from yourself, but from your Higher Self too! 💫🙌😇

Let’s jump in!

To start things off, today we are going to be connecting with our first energetic center, our Muladhara, or Base/Root Chakra – home of your 5 basic needs, physical health, stability, grounding, and security.

Your Base Chakra gets its red colour by the slow frequency at which it spins (vibrates).
❤Located at the base of your spine (or tail bone) your Base Chakra respresents your 5 basic survival needs;
-food
-shelter
– sleep
– clothing
– and love.

Your Base Chakra influences;
– how you think and physically feel in and about your body
– what you think about other people’s bodies (judgment and criticism) 🚷
– how safe and secure you feel in your home, surroundings, world, etc 🆘
– how open-minded you are to thoughts, opinions and other perspectives, or if you hold preconceived ideas and judgments ‼
– how responsible you are for your own life
– how effectively you organise and prioritise tasks in your life ✔
– and your connection to the Earth, Gaia, animals and other people. 🍄

So now that you have a basic understanding of the different areas of your life that this center influences, let’s use your Tarot cards to assess and balance this center, and the associated areas of your life!

Take a deep breath, connect with your intuition/Higher Self or spiritual support system, and gently bring your attention to your Base Chakra.

Shuffle your cards, read over the prompts below, and deal a card in each position. You can ask your intuition/High Self each prompt before placing the card – or go with what feels comfortable.

Reveal your cards, and take a minute to note any immediate impressions that come to you. Then spend some time exploring the messages and guidance offered within. ❤
