What Are Oracle Cards?

Oracle cards are a divination method, similar to the Tarot, but more fluid and less structured in nature. While the Tarot follows a similar pattern of a standardised 78 card deck, with 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 Minor Arcana cards (although the imagery can vary greatly as well as the interpretations of the meanings of the cards to a certain extent), oracle cards are completely up to the artist to decided how many to create, what they mean, and what they look like.

As with other divination methods, they are a powerful tool for tapping into your intuition and innate wisdom, as well as your Higher Self, Spirit Guides, Guardian Angels, Ancestors etc if this speaks to you. They work by selecting a number of cards of your choice to help you shed some light on a question, or give an overview to the general energies for non-specific inquiries. With regular use, they can help strengthen your ability to make decisions and analyse different points of view, as well as help instil a sense of calm and faith in the future.

Often, oracle cards are used as a support at the end of a Tarot reading, but they are just as beautiful to use on their own and many people prefer them because they are easier and more intuitive to learn than the sometimes rigid framework of Tarot card meanings (which also have many layers of deeper correspondences which can sometimes take years to become experienced with)! Oracle cards will come with their own information booklet created by the artist and generally feature simpler meanings that are easier to digest.

An oracle card deck that I absolutely love is Rebecca Campbell’sStarseed Oracleand Work Your Lightones, but other famous oracle decks that are also really popular include The Wild Unknown Spirit Animal DeckandMoonology Deck for aligning with the phases of the moon. Of course, as with any divination practice, whichever tool you end up choosing is going to help guide you, but ultimately the choice is yours to make and using your own discernment is always necessary.

Read on to find out how to do an oracle card readings and some spreads to get you started:

How to do an Oracle reading

An oracle reading can be done by either intuitively pulling any card that calls to you, or laying them down in a specific spread. A spread is a way of laying the cards down to get a breakdown and insight to an answer with more detail and layers to it, including general advice and guidance for non-specific questions.

How to do an oracle reading

  1. To begin an oracle reading, you would start in much the same way as a Tarot reading. First, set the scene by either lighting some candles, incense, essential oils, cleansing your space with smoke or bells, or simply just going to a calm place you won’t know you won’t be disturbed in. If you are using a new deck, you can clear it by leaving it out in the moon and/or sunlight for 24 hours, burying it in a bowl of salt, or any other cleansing method you prefer. It also helps to form a relationship with your deck by using it regularly so you can get a feel for how it works with you.

  2. Next, make sure to ground and centre yourself before pulling any cards so that your energy is clear of interference. You can do this by taking some deep breaths, meditating for a few moments, visualising a cord rooting you to the centre of the earth, calling in your Spirit Guides or anything else that resonates with you.

  3. When you are ready, begin shuffling your deck. Again, this can be done in a similar way to a Tarot deck, either with a simple overhand shuffle, riffling them together magician style, or splaying them all out on the floor and collecting them up again. I usually go for an overhand shuffle to make sure the cards don’t get damaged, but if you would like to read reversals (which is not as customary as it is with Tarot readings), spreading them out on the floor or table may be the easiest way to do this. Keep your mind focussed on the matter at hand while shuffling.

  4. Once you are done shuffling, blow on the deck to get rid of any lingering energy, knock it 3 times with your fist to disperse your own energy through it, and then cut the deck into 3 piles before putting it back together again. As with anything intuitive, you can also go with your gut for what feels best to do.

  5. After you have reassembled your deck, you can decide to either pull cards straight from the top of the deck or fan them out and pull the ones that call to you. Usually a Tarot reader will pull cards from the top to save time and space, but fanning them out adds in a nice extra element of intuition, if this is available to you. Before selecting a card, make sure to think of the question in the spread that card will be answering (if any).You can also say it out loud.

  6. When you have finished laying out your cards in the spread, take the reading in as a whole and note any first impressions you receive. How do the cards make you feel? What stands out to you? How do they interact with each other? After you have intuitively created a story with the cards, if you need, you can look up their specific meanings to answer anything you might have missed. Once you are done interpreting them individually, in relation to the question they are answering, and between each other as a whole, you can also journal your findings to track your progress and note down anything else that might come up as you write.

  7. After you’re done, thank the cards for their help and put them back in their box in a safe place until the next time you need them. It’s recommended to leave at least a month between asking the cards the same question again to allow the answer to develop in its own time, but you can ask different questions as often as you like. If you recorded your answers, it’s interesting to come back to them after a while and see how the reading played out.

beginner oracle spreads

Due to their intuitive nature, oracle card spreads are often much freer and simpler in their interpretations than reading Tarot spreads, and they are often used in just a one card pull to give a quick and easy boost of inspiration, advice, insight, connection, or trust in your current situation and life. This can also be like a daily 1-card pull to get a feel for the energy of the day ahead. If you would like a more involved spread, here are some ideas to explore:

Easy 2-Card Spread

This is a quick spread that is great for accessing support when you need get a bit of confidence in yourself or getting a little bit more detail on some action you can take along with the general advice. Card 1 is general advice for what you need to hear for your best and highest good right now, like a 1-card pull, and Card 2 is how you can embrace your Highest Self. This is like how you can show up and shine brightest in the world.

Basic 3-Card Spread

This is one of the most popular and versatile spreads (that is also often used in a Tarot card reading too) and can be applied to a variety of situations, such as:

  • MIND - BODY - SPIRIT = Advice for your mind’s wellbeing - What your body needs from you - What your soul needs to hear right now

  • SITUATION - ACTION - OUTCOME = The current energies and influences around you - Your suggested action or advice - The potential final outcome of your situation should you choose to follow this advice

You can also easily adapt this spread to suit your needs.

5-Card Spread For Deeper Intuition

  • Card 1 - What does my highest self want me to know right now?

  • Card 2 - What does my subconscious/soul want me to know?

  • Card 3 - What do my Spirit Guides/Ancestors/Guardian Angels/Universe etc want me to hear?

  • Card 4 - What is a path/direction I should pursue?

  • Card 5 - What do I need to embrace more of?

7-Card Deep Dive Spread

  • Card 1 - What is my soul purpose?

  • Card 2 - What are my greatest strengths?

  • Card 3 - What do I need to let go of?

  • Card 4 - How can I step into my truest expression?

  • Card 5 - What is difficult for me to accept?

  • Card 6 - What should I embrace along my journey?

  • Card 7 - Where am I currently heading?

Looking to oracle cards are a beautiful way to gain some insight to our inner workings, subconscious and unconscious, broaden our perspective and see things in a different light. They can help give us guidance and assurance in our decisions, selves, and path.

The Self-Care Emporium

What oracle cards to choose?

There are lots of oracle cards to choose from and it depends on how much experience you have with them, which will determine the ones that are best for you. Remember to also think about which illustrations connect with you the most. Art speaks to us and can connect with our emotions better than any other medium, so the illustrations of your oracle cards are very important.

Here at The Self-Care Emporium, we love the oracle decks created by Rebecca Campbell and artist Danielle Noel. These cards are not only beautifully illustrated, containing a huge amount of divine feminine energy, but also have a way of helping you visualise and process your subconscious thoughts.

The messages on these oracle cards are also very detailed and easy to understand and really help to deliver those universal messages to our conscious minds.

The Best Oracle Card Spreads for Beginners

Here at Freeing the Butterfly we love oracle cards! 

Read last month’s post for an introduction to oracle cards and how you can use them. When you first start using oracle cards, it can be a bit daunting. Are you doing it right? Are you getting the right messages? 

The answer to both these questions is YES! There’s no right or wrong way to use oracle cards which is just one of the things that’s so great about them. We include them in the Chapter 6 of Freeing the Butterfly, “Finding What Works for You,” because they’re a great tool for learning more about yourself.

We’ve put together a list of what we think are the best oracle card spreads for beginners. 

Three Card Readings

Three card readings are some of the most popular oracle card readings, and a great place to start, because you can customize them for whatever you’re working on. To start a reading many people will knock on their deck (usually three times) to wake it up, then shuffle the cards. 

You can ask your deck a question before shuffling or during, whichever feels the most comfortable for you. Open ended questions are best unless you have a deck that will address yes/no questions. It’s generally better to ask, “What do I need to know about xyz?” rather than “Should I do xyz?”

If a card falls out while you’re shuffling, that’s the answer to your question. If a card doesn’t fall out, it doesn’t mean the Universe doesn’t have an answer. Shuffle until you feel like you're done then take the card from the top or cut the deck and then take a card. Use your intuition and remember, there’s no wrong way to do it!

Here are some examples of popular three card readings:

Past, Present, Future

Card 1: What do I need to know about my past?

Card 2: What can you tell me about my present?

Card 3: What do I need to know about my future?

Weekly Reading

Card 1: What will the energy be like at the beginning of the week?

Card 2: What will the energy be like in the middle of the week?

Card 3: What will the energy be like at the end of the week?

If you have a business or are setting goals, you could alter this one to say something like, “What should I work on at the beginning of the week?” and so on.

Love Reading

Card 1: What do I need to know about myself ?

Card 2: What do I need to know about the other person?

Card 3: What do I need to know about the relationship?

Decision Making

Card 1: What would things look like if I chose option one?

Card 2: What would things look like if I chose option two?

Card 3: What else do I need to know to make a decision?

Here are more three card spreads for you to check out from Labrinthos. Don’t worry that the article talks about Tarot cards. You can use the same spreads for Tarot and oracle cards. You can also make up your own three card spreads.

10 Oracle Card Spreads To Get Answers When You Need Them

Tarot cards seem to get all the attention, don’t they? A quick Google search will pull up all sorts of tarot spreads and resources. But let’s not forget about the other kind of magical cards—oracle cards! It tends to take a bit more effort to find quality, insightful spreads to use with your oracle cards.

Still, there are many benefits to using these versatile card decks. For one, you’ll find a huge variety of themes, images, and card meanings outside of the seventy-eight card structure of a traditional tarot deck. With so many options, you may be able to gain a new perspective on a situation that you’re dealing with. Another reason to love oracle decks is that many times they hone in on one area of your life, like romantic relationships, finances, or emotions. An oracle deck all about love can give you the straightforward guidance you’re looking for regarding your new relationship.

The challenge you may face when working with oracle cards is knowing how to use these cards in a spread. Often times, you only pull one oracle card per reading. Some readers consider it a bit unconventional to draw multiple oracle cards as a spread, but it’s definitely doable, and it can deliver some meaningful and complex messages from your intuition, your deities, your spirit guides, or your higher power.

So if you’re looking to explore new ways to use and create spreads for your oracle cards, here’s everything you need to know to get started!

Most oracle decks fall into one of two categories: Character-based decks or topical decks. Character-based decks have cards that feature people, personalities, animals, gods and goddesses, spirit guides, or other “characters”. Most other decks can be classified as topical. This includes oracle decks with quotes, phrases, guidance, adjectives—things like that. Because of the differences between these two kinds of decks, I’ve separated these oracle spreads between these two categories, as well as spreads that combine the two.

Character-Based Oracle Spreads

Character-based oracle decks are great for getting answers regarding the energies and intentions of the people in your life, as well as yourself. These are particularly helpful with you’re looking for answers to your love and relationship questions.

Healing Insights Oracle Spread

Card #1: What energy brought me to my current situation?

Card #2: Who do I need to be to move through my current situation?

Card #3: Who in my life can help me out of this situation?

Card #4: Who do I need to release to move out of this situation?

Job Interview Oracle Spread

Card #1: What is my current energy?

Card #2: What is the current energy of the interviewer?

Card #3: What energy do I need to embody to nail this job interview?

Card #4: What qualities should I highlight?

This spread also works well for business meetings, schmoozing at parties, first dates, or anytime you want to make a good first impression. The focus of this spread should be on presenting your best self, not trying to be a different person. Make sure you stay true to who YOU are when interpreting these cards. Celebrate your awesomeness.

Long-Term Relationship Oracle Spread

Card #1: Who do I show up as in this relationship?

Card #2: Who does my partner show up as in this relationship?

Card #3: How do I view my partner?

Card #4: How does my partner view me?

Topical Oracle Spreads

Topical oracle decks are excellent for getting more information about a situation, and how to move forward.

Getting Unstuck Oracle Spread

Card #1: What is my current situation.

Card #2: When did I become stuck?

Card #3: What caused me to become stuck?

Card #4: How am I keeping myself stuck?

Card #5: How can I move forward?

Decision-Making Oracle Spread

Card #1: Why am I having trouble making this decision?

Card #2: What can I expect to experience if I choose option #1

Card #3: What can I expect to experience if I choose option #2

Card #4: What fears do I have around this decision?

Card #5: How do I really feel about this decision?

Here’s where things really get fun. To do these spreads, you’ll need one character-based oracle deck and one topical deck. Team up with another card-loving witch if you don’t have the decks you need.

Moons of the Year Oracle Spread

Ideally, you should pull this spread on the night of the first new moon of the year. It’s not necessary that you see the moon as you’re doing this reading. The energy of the new moon will be all around your regardless of the weather or clouds in the sky. That being said, you might find that being outside or by a window when you pull this spread strengthens your connection to the moon.

Shuffle your two decks of oracle cards separately as you ask the moon, “What can you tell me about each moon in the coming year?”

Draw two cards for each moon—one character-based oracle card and one topical card.

As you draw the character-based card, ask the moon, “What is the energy or personality of this moon?”.

As you draw the topical card, ask the moon, “What can I expect to experience during this moon?”.

You can do this for all twelve (or sometimes thirteen moons) of the year, or you can shorten it to the next three moons to make this a seasonal spread, or the next six months to make it a bi-yearly spread.

Note the cards you pull in your journal or grimoire, or snap a picture of the spread so you can refer to for guidance moving forward, or use it to look back on each moon to check the accuracy of your interpretations.

Five-Card Hidden Message Spread

Perform a grounding meditation before you dive into this spread. It can be challenging—and exhilarating—to decipher the messages you receive through this spread.

Draw your first card from a character-based deck.

Card #1: Who will I be receiving messages from?

Draw your second card from your topical oracle deck.

Card #2: What area are you communicating with me about?

Now draw a combination of five more cards from either deck. As you do this, say (aloud or in your head), “Tell me what you need to say and what I need to hear in five cards.”

Cards #3-#7: The message from this spirit

Move these five cards around in whatever order feels right to you. Look for the story that the cards tell when combined. Look for connections between the cards such as similarities or opposites.

Because you set the intention that you’d only be pulling five cards, try to find the message in those five cards. However, if your intuition (or the spirit/energy you’re communicating with) seems to be calling you to draw more cards, do it.

If this happens, you can ask (aloud or in your head), “How many more cards should I pull to complete this message?”

Listen for the answer. Then draw that number of cards, and add them to your spread.

When you’re done, thank the energy you were communicating with for being present and put your cards away. Cleanse the card decks you used in this reading by placing a clear quartz crystal and sprinkling a handful of sea salt on the stack of cards for at least a day to get rid of any residual energy.

Stream of Consciousness Oracle Spread

Select one character-based deck and one topical deck. Do this quickly and without thinking too hard. You’ll intuitively pick the decks that will most benefit you in that moment.

Start your reading by shuffling both decks and setting your intention. You can say something like, “I desire a real-talk conversation with my inner wisdom.” This spread is all about accessing the answers you already have inside of you.

Place both decks in front of you, and begin asking questions. You can do this in your mind, or say your questions aloud. Don’t prepare any questions for this spread beforehand. Simply go with whatever you happen to think of. After you ask a question, choose a character card or a topical card based on what the question calls for.

For example:

“What can I expect to experience today?” can be answered with a topical card because it’s more “situational”.

“What qualities should I embody to make the most out of today?” can be answered with a character card.

Performing this ritual will also give you practice making up your own oracle spreads.

You can use your oracle cards (character or topical) to figure out what kind of magic to perform on any given day. To do this, shuffle your deck as you normally would and ask the following questions as you draw your cards.

Card #1: What issue do I need to address today?

Card #2: What magic should I perform to help with this issue?

Card #3: What can I expect as a result of my spell?

Or try this witchy oracle spread:

Card #1: What spirit, element, or energy should I invite to co-create magic with me?

Card #2: What issue can this entity or energy help me with?

Card #3: Are there any messages that this spirit or energy has for me?

Shuffle the cards before you pull the third card. Shuffle until you feel it’s time to stop, or until a card falls or “jumps” out of your stack. If you shuffle for a while and you don’t feel any kind of nudge to pull a card, it could mean the energy or spirit you’re working with doesn’t have any messages for you at this time. Conversely, if several cards fall out of the deck, or you feel called to pull more than one card, follow that instinct.

Just like with your tarot cards, if you aren’t getting clear messages from your oracle cards right away, take some time to journal about the cards or simply sit with the cards until a message comes to mind. It might also be helpful to do another meditative activity while you ponder the meaning of your cards such as cooking, walking, or drawing.

The more you work with your oracle cards, the more confident and creative you’ll become when combining decks and creating spreads. Keep in mind, you can never mess this up. Every oracle card you draw, whether it immediately makes sense in a spread or not, is meant to serve you. Trust your interpretations while staying open to unexpected messages. Enjoy this exciting magical practice.

How to Read Oracle Cards + Create Spreads

What are oracle cards?

The word “Oracle” comes from the Latin word “orare” which means to speak. Some definitions of oracle include priest, priestess or medium who shares guidance. Oracle decks are a collection of cards, typically 30-60 cards, with illustrations and text. Most see oracle cards as a tool to read the energy around a person, event or situation. They help us to see a situation differently, and refresh our mindset. They do not predict the future, and should not be used to make decisions.

What are oracle spreads?

An oracle spread is a series of cards that are chosen with an overarching theme, but each card also has a specific point of focus. For example, the New Moon Oracle Spread in my eguide 22 DIY Oracle Spreads to Exercise Your Intuition is a series of 4 cards that helps understand how the New Moon may be influencing us. The 4 cards represent Beginning, Obstacle, Renewal, and Commitment.

New Moon Oracle Card Spread - New Moon Ritual

How can I create a spread?

When creating a spread, readers energetically clear, shuffle, and then pull card(s). The reader and recipient then interpret the cards. Oracle decks often come with meanings and explanations for each card. However, I created this workbook that offers journal prompts, along with each spread, to help you connect to your own intuition. One card can have infinite meanings, depending on your perspective and interpretation.

Many people find that as they develop a relationship with the deck, they begin to develop their own interpretation of the cards. As the reader holds the card, they often channel more information. As the reader enters into a meditative state with the intention to be led by the truth, they begin to feel, sense or read the energy surrounding the card.

Why Create an Oracle Spread?

When choosing a card or spread, you may ask for guidance around a specific relationship, pattern, or circumstance. You may also ask for a general card to speak to you in the present moment.

My favorite way to use oracle cards are to let them reconfirm what I already know. I often ask myself a question in meditation, jot down the intuitive hunches that I receive, and then pull a card to see the common thread between my answer and the oracle message.

Oracle cards serve as…

  • Whispers from a greater presence
  • Inspiration, guidance and a fresh perspective
  • Encouragement
  • Support
  • Sources for reflection and introspection
  • Confirmation of what you already know
  • Fun, exploration and curiosity
  • An illumination of the energy around a person or thing in the present moment

And they’re not meant to…

  • Predict the future
  • Make decisions
  • Bypass self-awareness, alignment, and inner work
  • Passively seek the answers outside of yourself

Why should I practice free writing with oracle spreads?

Free writing is a process of allowing yourself to connect with your heart, higher mind and intuition, and then letting a stream of consciousness write through you. It’s giving the loving and faithful voice inside of you a chance to express itself.

As a teacher of Reiki, self-healing and self- awakening, I look to share ways to empower the healer within. My aim is for you to hear your own nudges, trust them and be led by your heart. For this reason, I have created the 22 DIY Oracle Spreads to Exercise Your Intuition workbook. It’s a space for you to introspect and seek the guidance within.

Followed by every oracle spread, awaits a worksheet with soulful writing prompts.

For every card that you pull, the worksheet gives you space to jot down:

  • any visions, channeled messages, emotions, or bodily sensations you experience as you pulled the card
  • anything that stands out to you in the illustration of the card (expressions on a face, scenery, colors, shapes etc.)
  • why the card’s title might catch your attention
  • messages from the book associated with your oracle deck, that speak to you

How can I read cards?

1.Align

When working with oracle cards, the energy that you bring to the reading determines the quality, interpretation, and joy of it. You are encouraged to move into a relaxed, and receptive state as you prepare to read cards.

Begin by drawing your attention inwards. Breathe deeply into the belly. Lengthen the spine, drop the shoulders, and open the Heart Chakra. Take as much time as you need to find your center. You may practice breathe-work, Reiki, chanting or any other practice that helps you enter a meditative state.

2. Set an Intention

It’s important to clarify from whom you are seeking. You may wish to call in your guides, Universal wisdom, or your Higher Self.

You may experiment with creating your own intentions or reciting the following ones:

  • May I be a clear channel for the highest truth.
  • May I be guided by love and light.
  • I welcome the guidance of my soul.
  • I allow the Universe to show me the way.
  • I am open to receiving wisdom.

3. Ask your Questions

Clarify what you are seeking a message around. Clearly state the question that you have in mind, which may be the overarching theme of the spread. You may ask for quick guidance that will support you, or a more focused intention such as:

  • Please reveal to me the energy around my relationship with…
  • Help me to see my purpose.
  • I wish to understand how the moon’s energy is influencing me.
  • Please show me how I can support myself in what I am experiencing.

4. Clear the energy of the deck

Oracle decks can pick up the energy of the reader and recipient with every use. It’s common practice and ritualistic to clear the energy of the deck. It’s an intentional practice of releasing the old and allowing the truth to prevail.

Here are some ways in which you can clear your oracle deck:

  • Hold the deck between your two hands, and allow yourself to breathe your awareness into your hands. Ask for any old energies to be released and transmuted. Ask for energies that aren’t yours to step away. Once you feel the deck has been cleared, visualize light surrounding the deck. You may ask for the light to illuminate the truth.
  • Burn sage, incense or palo santo near the deck.
  • Leave a crystal on top of your oracle deck with the intent to clear energy. Selenite, black tourmaline, and smoky quartz are excellent choices.
  • Place your oracle deck on an altar with your adored Dieties, ancestors, or angels. Ask them to bless the deck.

5. Shuffle + Choose a Card

Begin to shuffle the cards in your hands. State the intention of the first card in the spread. When you feel called, go ahead and pull your card. Continue the process for the remainder of the cards in that spread. If a card jumps out when you’re shuffling, it’s yours! It wants your attention.

6. Interpret

Take a few moments to gaze at the card. Enjoy the illustrations. Connect with your senses. Notice what catches your attention and write it down on the accompanying worksheet.

Are there any colors, or shapes that stand out?

Are there any expressions on someone’s face?

What does the landscape or scenery mean to you?

Also, take note of how you translate this card.

How does this message speak to what you are currently experiencing?

Hold the card to your heart and consider the intuitive hunches you receive. Did you feel any bodily sensations as you pulled this card?

Did you have visions, hear a message, or feel an emotion while connecting with this card?

Finally, jot down any messages from the book associated with your oracle deck, that speak to you. What parts of the explanation resonate with you?

7. Invoke trust and gratitude

Trust that you have received the exact messages that you needed for today and surrender any last bits of doubt, or fear. Thank the oracle deck, your guides and yourself for the love and light that you received. Take a moment to feel gratitude and trust in your heart.

Highest Self Alignment Spread - How to Read Oracle Cards

What decks do you recommend?



The Work Your Light deck by Rebecca Campbell features some of the most beautiful artwork, alongside messages for modern mystics. You’ll dig this collection if you’re open to the Akashic Records, Pleiadians, and Mintakans!

The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit Oracle Deck is such a fun way to connect with our spirit guides! If you’re constantly seeing butterflies, birds, and animal spirits in your meditation, I recommend this deck for you.

The Whispers of Lord Ganesha deck is the first oracle deck I ever worked with! It holds a special place in my heard. The messages in this collection are grounding and optimistic.

What do I do with the oracle messages that I receive?

Continue to commune with the Earth and Heavenly planes with the information you receive. Perhaps you continue the conversation the next day, or you let the messages guide your other spiritual practices. You can take the information from your oracle spreads to your meditation, journaling or channeling practices for further clarity.

Don’t overanalyze or overthink the messages. You may not be able to see the next 10 steps, but see if you can show up for the first one. The rest will be revealed in divine timing.

Trust yourself. Your body, intuition, heart, and Higher Self are all guiding you towards alignment and growth. Get out of your own way and let your soul lead the way.

Release your ego’s judgement around messages. Know that the Universe has a plan far greater than yours. You may not understand the messages that are being revealed to you right now, but it may make sense in the future.

Let yourself interpret the cards and messages in your own way. Let your interpretations evolve and unfold over time. There is no right or wrong way to read oracle cards, as long as you’re coming from a place of compassion.

Keep a dated journal of your spreads, either in this workbook or another diary. From time to time, you may want to look back at previous spreads to see how the cards and your intuition spoke to the energy of that time. This practice will help you trust in your own readings.
