Tarot Spread – Impostor Syndrome: Understanding & Overcoming

This tarot spread will help you identify some of your behaviors regarding feeling inadequate or like a fraud.  The aim is to discover what might be holding you back & how you can move past it.

Impostor Syndrome is something I keep hearing about lately. The past few months it seems to be a topic that I notice everywhere. I personally cannot identify to having impostor syndrome but I know it is incredibly common and I wanted to create a tarot spread to help others.

 What is Impostor Syndrome?

Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon, impostorism, fraud syndrome or the impostor experience) is a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a “fraud”.  – Wikipedia

Valerie Young categorized Impostor Syndrome into subgroups:

  1. The Perfectionist
  2. The Superwoman/man
  3. The Natural Genius
  4. The Rugged Individualist
  5. The Expert

I won’t go further to explain each subgroup but you can read the article here. It asks valuable questions to help you pinpoint which subgroup you fall into.

Of course, I am not a trained professional and if impostor syndrome is something that really holds you back in life, I would of course recommend speaking to someone who is trained to help. 

This tarot spread will help you identify some of your behaviors regarding feeling inadequate or like a fraud. The aim is to discover what might be holding you back & how you can move past it.
