Before You Start

Before you start, it’s important to prepare your space. Decide if you’d like to do this tarot spread in the sunlight, or wait until it’s dark. Light some candles if you’d like, and get your notebook ready! Choose your tarot deck, and shuffle it to clear out any remaining energies from the last tarot spread. (You can read here how I lay out my notebook for tarot spreads).
