One of the greatest sources of unhappiness in our lives occurs when there is a disconnect between what we want and what we need.
For example, you may WANT to find the perfect romantic partner, but you may NEED to move on from your past relationship first. This conflict causes a disconnect and overriding sense of lack and unworthiness.
This tarot spread will help you get clear on your desires and your needs in a specific area of your life so you can make changes. More importantly, it will show you where those desires and needs are in conflict, so you can quickly resolve the conflict and see the changes happen naturally.
Reading the Tarot Spread
Before you begin, choose ONE area or question in your life where you feel a sense of unfulfilled desire, unhappiness, or lack. This may be broad (”my financial situation”) or specific (”my annual performance review on Tuesday”).
When you are ready, shuffle the cards any way you’d like and lay out three cards in the order shown in the image above.
CARD ONE: What do I desire?
This card represents what you think is the best resolution for this situation. Your desires are often things you can’t control but wish would change.
CARD TWO: What do I really need?
This card represents what you actually NEED to have happen to find happiness in this situation. It is usually a change that you can control (in your beliefs, thoughts, words, actions, or choices) and it represents bringing this situation into alignment with your values.
CARD THREE: Where are my desires and my needs in conflict?
This card represents the areas where your desires and your needs are in conflict. When you resolve this conflict, you will be able to move forward and find peace.
