Divination and Magick Together
Here's a way to see how and where your life is going and then rearrange it to your specifications!
When you think about it, that is divination at its best. Divination shows us our possibilities and our options. When we seek information from the Universe we get a sense of our tools, skills and abilities, as well as the energies around us. With that, we can direct our energies toward our most possible positive outcome.
Here's what you need to do. You can do this in sacred space, while journaling, or even as an exercise with your tarot friends.
Shuffle your tarot deck. Think about your life in general. Be consciously open to the wisdom of the Universe. Invoke a deity if you like.
Pull seven cards from the deck. You can do this any way you like - take the top seven, fan out the deck and pull seven from throughout the deck, or cut the deck into seven piles and take the top cards.
Lay out the cards in the order you picked them left to right.
First, interpret the cards, left to right, as a basic comment on your current life. In them you may see past, present and possible future. You may see them all as aspects of your current life.
Now, see these seven cards as the building blocks for your future. Your job is to arrange them the way you want them. You can turn reversals upright, or reverse cards if you like.
Arrange the cards as a timeline left to right, starting with the present moment. Choose the card that most represents where you are right now as the first card to the left. Arrange the other cards in an order that progresses toward the future you desire.
Think about what each card might mean in this context, and as you place it down visualize it as your conscious intention.
Leave these cards on your altar for a little while if you can, or record them in your journal, holding your intentions for your future.
