Do you ever feel like anxiety is a weight that you can’t shake? That no matter what you do, the worry and fear just keep piling up until you feel like you can’t breathe? If so, this Tarot spread is for you.
The Tarot can help us to see our situations in a new light, and to find solutions where we might have seen none before. In this spread, we will focus on the issue of anxiety.
Do Tarot Cards Help with Anxiety?
The Tarot can be a helpful tool when dealing with anxiety, as it can help to provide clarity and understanding about our worries and fears. This spread is designed to help you take a step back from your anxiety and to see it from a new perspective.
This tarot spread can be used with any deck, but I recommend using a deck that speaks to you on a personal level. Trust your intuition when choosing a deck, as this will be the most effective way to work with the tarot.
Tarot Spread for Anxiety
When you are ready, shuffle your deck and choose four cards. Lay them out in front of you, from left to right. The first card represents your current state, the second card represents the tools you have to find focus, the third card represents ways you can relax, and the fourth card represents strategies for not worrying about the future.
- Card One: Your current state
- Card Two: Tools you can use to find focus
- Card Three: Ways you can relax
- Card Four: Strategies for not worrying about the future
Turn the cards over one by one, remembering to breathe deeply. What do the pictures on the cards tell you? How do they make you feel? Allow the tarot to give you some guidance on how to work with your anxiety.
How to Interpret Tarot Readings for Anxiety
Because reading the Tarot requires both intuition and knowledge, it can be difficult to interpret tarot readings for anxiety on your own. Here are a few tips:
- Focus on the feeling of the reading, rather than the literal meaning of the cards.
- Allow yourself to be open to whatever interpretation comes to you.
- If you’re stuck, ask a friend or tarot reader for help.
- Keep a journal of your tarot readings for anxiety, so you can look back and see how your understanding of the cards has changed over time.
Trust the Tarot
Tarot spread for anxiety can be very helpful in times of worry and stress. By focusing on the feeling of the reading, you can get a better understanding of what the tarot cards are trying to tell you.
