Sasha Graham's Tarot Card a Day Blog – The Five Senses Tarot Spread
The Five Senses Tarot Spread
Tis the Halloween season!
There is no better time than right now to start honing your tarot reading skills. I’ve developed a spread to help you do just that.
I discovered a fabulous exercise in a book once (I believe it was in “How to Be a Wicked Witch” by Patricia Telesco). She explains that a great way to become more perceptive in the world is to practice sharpening your five senses. Take one week to work on each sense. Start withyour sense of sight – see further, see things sharply, examine the scope of what your eyes take in. Use the next week to work on your sense of smell – notice the scents around you, focus on how food smells before you dig in etc.
Using Tarot, we search for extra information and it is through our senses that we make our way through this world. Use this spread in a nurturing way and make sure to answer the questions.
You may lay the cards out any way you like. One Tarot card for each sense. And yes – I’ve included the 6th sense at the end!
Associated with the Root (1st) Chakra – self-preservation, heredity, vitality and identification with the physical body. Smell is a very distinct quality and can evoke intense emotion. How you bring the world inside of yourself and physicalize things. What you have inherited, your strengths.
How can you take better care of yourself?
Associated with the Sacral (2nd) Chakra – self-gratification, sexual fulfillment and nurturing. Your tastes are what intrigues you, your likes and dislikes. Your tastes can be refined and made more discriminating. This card will provide information on how you take care of yourself and how you identify with your emotional body.
How can you nurture yourself better?
Associated with the Solar Plexus(3rd) Chakra – Self-definition, ego identity, thoughts and will power. Your capacity to actually look at what is ahead for yourself and others, how excellent you are at interpreting what is right in front of you, and how to clear your vision so that you see what you need to.
How can you see yourself in a fresh, new light?
Associated with the Heart (4th) Chakra – Self-acceptance, social identity, love and peace. How you literally feel the universe, the world around you. Your emotional outlook, your general emotional state. Also, how you touch others. Touch infiltrates every inch of our body inside and out.
How can you make the world a better place?
Associated with Throat (5th) Chakra – Communication and creativity. How well you listen, to yourself and to those around you. If you sit with a friend or client do you really take their needs inward or do you launch into your interpretation straight away. How can you better open up to hear that which is around you.
How can you better express yourself?
6. ****Your Sixth Sense****
How psychic you are. Your capacity to be an open channel. How much you trust your inner voice.
