The Golden Ratio (also called the Divine Proportion *insert giant wink*) is a number that appears in geometry, art, human faces, DNA molecules and is often found in nature (flower petals, bee hives, pinecones, succulents, shells, fruit, etc). Because of this connection between so many things in our world, the sequence speaks to the oneness, the interconnectedness, of all things.
For this reason, I thought a Fibonacci/Golden Ratio inspired tarot spread would be fun. The idea behind this spread is finding our own inner balance during our journey to the center of the self (comparable to the spiral).
My Spread / Interpretation
For the first time on my blog I decided to include my own pull I did for this spread. I used the mini Rider Waite deck for this one because the tiny cards are just so cute (!!!) and they remind me of my special someone.
- SOMETHING TO LEAVE BEHIND
(NO LONGER NECESSARY)
I interpret this one as leaving behind my old way of living life. Death was my card of the day yesterday and I have intuitively been receiving the message that my life is going through a giant shift this Fall. My priorities are shifting and things are changing. I think this represents my old way of thinking, old habits, old desires – I am shedding my skin and truly experiencing a renewal. It is not the first and certainly not the last.
- THE NEXT STEP IN FINDING MY CENTER POINT
↠ SIX OF PENTACLES
The Success card in the deck of Thoth, this one really speaks to me. I notice myself really drifting from my individualistic ideals – this card shows that I will have success and want to share the wealth. This will help me see the true value of living and find my life purpose. Neat card because this has been a theme I have been channeling for the past 2 months.
- WHAT I NEED TO RECOGNIZE IN MYSELF
↠ THE PRIESTESS
She represents intuition, wisdom, higher knowledge. It is always said the High Priestess sits in front of the veil of consciousness; she helps us connect to our psychic abilities. I pull this card very often and have always been very connected to it. I definitely need to recognize my own gifts and embrace them.
- A CURRENT BLESSING IN MY LIFE TO REFLECT ON
↠ THE EMPEROR
Since even before I started dating my partner the Emperor has ALWAYS come up in my readings to represent him. Clearly, this spread is no different. My partner is the greatest blessing in my life. He has helped me feel comfortable in expressing my True Self and has pushed me to follow my passions. He has shown me what a real connection with another human is all about. I am so grateful to him, for him, with him.
- MESSAGE FROM MY GUIDES ABOUT MY SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION
↠ EIGHT OF CUPS
This is an interesting card to pull as a message from my guides… at first I was a bit confused but I see very clearly the message intended here. I have to set aside some of life’s stability in order to find happiness. There is a leap that I am wanting to take and although I am hesitant, I will not find my true passion or happiness until I do it. Seeing this card in a spread with Death really reinforces the need to move on and leave my current situation… I need to leave the rat race.
I hope you find this tarot spread useful. Please share your spread with me, I would love to see it!
