Connect with Your Spirit Guides!

After reading the results of my Tarot survey (which is still open if you haven’t done it yet!), many of you indicated that you were interested in connecting with your Spirit Guides and Angels. So I designed a Tarot card spread to help you do just that!

connect with your spirit guide tarot spread

When I did this spread myself, I got the three cards pictured below and at first I was totally confused…

Crystal Visions Tarot by Jennifer Galasso

To me, the Queen of Swords shows that my guides are helping me get clarity (represented by the sharp sword) while I experience an inner transformation (symbolized by the butterflies).

The Six of Swords confirms that I am going through a time of transition and that my guides are with me, helping me all the way.

However, it was the Two of Pentacles that made no sense at first. How on Earth does the Two of Pentacles help me connect with my Spirit Guides?

After really sitting with this card I noticed two things – the girl in the card is dancing and it is a Pentacles/Earth card. For the past 12 years I have enjoyed bellydancing and this was my way of grounding and feeling connected to the Earth and Spirit. But in the last year I haven’t been dancing as much. This was my guide’s way of telling me to get back dancing in order to feel a deeper connection to spirit.

Your turn! Create a special space for yourself before you try this reading – light a candle, burn some incense or essential oil and set the intention of connecting to your Spirit Guides and Angels.

    What is your Spirit Guide? How do you find it? Is it represented by a specific card for each person? Do you already have a post about this?

    My cards were: (Rider Tarot Deck)
    1. 8 of Cups
    2. 3 of Pentacles
    3. 10 of Pentacles

  2. Hi Kate,
    This is a great spread!
    I drew the 8 of Cups first which is indeed true, as the last months/years have been very painful and it’s nice to know that the guides are helping me move on, let go and find my personal truth.
    2nd card was the 9 of Swords and again very relevant.I know that a lot of the stuff is generated in my head and I am very quick to beat myself up, so even though it has been and still is, a difficult time, I believe the worst has passed.
    3rd card was the Hierophant: I am currently studying and continuosly learning both with teachers and on my own. The tarot has definitely enhanced my connection to my spiritual being.
    Thanks for sharing and it’s nice to see others posts and comments too.

      Hi Denise,
      I am glad using this spread helped you get some confirmation and feel supported as you work through a difficult time. If we feel like we aren’t alone and know that we have the support of our guides along the way, it can make those challenging times a little easier to get through. Hopefully things will be on the upswing for you very soon 🙂
      Warm Regards,
      Kate

    Kate–

    What a great spread! I think my guides will be so grateful to have another means of communication with me.

    Also, I really liked seeing you model your own use of this spread–especially the spot where you got stuck and had to really look at the Two of Pents to hear its message for you.

    Go shake that money-maker, baby!

    I’ve had so much fun and insight doing this spread. I have used Doreen Virtue’s Angel tarot, Angel Dreams and Saints and Angels deck, and then I tried it a second time with Sonia Choquette’s Soul oracle cards and the Answer is Simple, plus Doreen Virtue’s Goddess Guidance. It’s a great spread, I’ve written the meanings on a post-it and stuck it on my desk for future reference. Many thanks and heaps of blessings !!

      That’s awesome, Mary! I actually also did an extended version of this spread (I ended up not posting it because it was too much info all at once) – but basically you use 9 cards instead of three and you just repeat this spread three times, so you have a block of nine cards, if that makes sense. You can use a different deck for each row of three. You really get to see how certain themes are repeated throughout the reading. Glad you enjoyed this spread so much, Mary!

    Love it! And, by the way, I IMMEDIATELY went to “start dancing more, girl” when I saw the two of pentacles from the Crystal Visions deck above! So keep dancin’ and movin’ that God pod!!!! Great spread. I have been connecting with my angels and spirit guides for years now, and they ALWAYS give sound advice (even if I don’t want to hear it!) I always ask for a dragonfly to appear just for reassurance, and sure enough, I get one hovering over me almost immediately! They are always with us – all we have to do is talk to them and ask for guidance, assistance, protection, support, etc.. Thanks for always sharing your insight and creativity! Blessings.

      Hi Sage,
      I have never heard the term “god pod” before! I love it – it made me laugh!
      That’s interesting what you said about the dragonfly – I asked my guides to show me a picture of a unicorn somewhere unexpected to signal their presence. For a while nothing happened, then the other night I was at a pub celebrating a friend’s birthday and she opened this gift and someone had bought her unicorn bandaids as a joke!

    Kate,

    I really like this spread. I enjoyed reading over your interpretation of your own. I’ll definitely have to give this one a try.
