Yet another amazing Instagrammer shared another amazing spread and I was blown away by it! Lisa Frideborg Eddy – who I follow intensely – shared a wonderful post to her Instagram about yesterday being the last of the 888 days in 2015. She directed us to her website where she had a tarot spread ready and waiting to help us tap into this 888 power!
I, being me, got overly excited and couldn’t wait to do it! I immediately laid out my reading cloth, picked not one but TWO goal cards (they go hand-in-hand) and got to work on what it would look like manifesting said goal(s). It was great! I’m wondering if this could be adapted for a more general purpose. Probably so, right? Check out the details on her blog and dive in with me below!
Position 1: What your Guardian Angel has to say on the matter: Five of Cups
At first I was like, “Uh oh. Lisa’s blog says if this is a negative card, now might not be the time to work on this goal” BUT the more I thought about it, the more I realized that my Guardian Angel was telling me to not dwell on the past but to tend to the great things I have in front of me!
Position 2: How your current close relationship helps/hinders your progress toward this goal: Ten of Pentacles
In all honesty, I was originally going to pick this card as my secondary goal but I decided to go with the Ten of Cups instead but I knew this card meant to show up in this reading somehow because it is my “Happily Ever After” card and I love that this is how my current relationship is helping me progress towards my goal. I won’t get into personal details but trust me when I say this is 1000000000% appropriate!
Position 3: A talent to captilise on to help you get there: The Moon
Here comes my Shadow Side to help me. It’s where my fantasies, wild imagination and intuition like to hide. I have always felt a strong, deep connection to the Moon so I feel like she’s here to guide me. And she’ll be full of helping, loving guidance on Saturday – Super Full Moon in Pisces!
Position 4: The foundation for a future where having achieved your goal is a reality: Seven of Swords
This was another spot where Lisa’s blog says if this is a negative card, now might not be the time to work on this goal BUT (again), instead of the hidden motivations of this card, I feel like I have to be sneaky. Not in the dark side kind of way, but in the helpful kind of way. You know, like planning a surprise party! I need to be stealthy and instead of sharing like I like to, I’ll have to keep somethings to myself in order for this to come to fruition. Also, this card was My Future Self in yesterday’s reading!
Position 5: Something to clear from your relationships that would otherwise hinder you: The Hierophant
This card tripped me up because in yesterday’s reading, The Hierophant showed up as “Remember To…”. I guess this is telling me that I can (and probably should!) rock the boat! How else will I learn if I don’t ask questions or (kindly) push back a little?
Position 6: Something to add in your relating/intimate relationship(s) to help achieve your goal: Two of Wands
My first thought was travel! Look at the globe in the bunny’s paw! Limitless possibilities! But I also took this as a hint to take a step towards making long-term goals and plans for new adventures. This lines up with my goal cards for sure!
Position 7: Something in your recent past that will have a bearing on your progress. Read together with cards 1 and 3 to understand how to best deal with the consequences of this past event: Page of Wands
I thought it was kind of funny that this position is about the recent past and yet card 1 (Five of Cups) is about not staying focused on the past. And card 3 (The Moon), I feel like it’s a nod to my creative restlessness (Page of Wands). My creativity is lurking in the depths and it needs to be let out! There’s a project (dealing with my recent past) that I have ready and waiting to be pitched as an indie film. I’m still rehearsing and tightening up my pitch but I feel like I need it to explode out of me!!! I have referenced that particular project before (and my TV show that’s gnawing and clawing to get out!)
Position 8: Your goal: Nine of Pentacles + Ten of Cups
I picked two complementary cards as my goal because I want to continue to be financially independent, growing my individual sense of self and continue drawing abundance into my life (Nine of Pentacles) and I also would love to have a happy, stable, loving home life (Ten of Cups). I don’t feel like I was trying to be greedy when I picked 2 cards, I simply wanted one to compliment the other and I feel like I achieved that quite nicely!
This was a very special reading and I do hope that maybe this can be adapted as a successful goal-setting spread! Please let me know if you try it out! And be sure to check out Lisa’s blog and Instagram!
