To authentically connect with others, we must remove the masks we all wear. To be vulnerable, both parties must trust each other. When it comes to your loving family, friends, community, and the greater world, you must remove your mask if you want to be loved for who you are, not who you appear to be.
This tarot spread will help you identify the areas in your life that are preventing you from connecting authentically with your friends, family, community, or audience.
