I have been craving to work on my intuition for a while now and reconnecting to my inner wisdom. I found my old Tarot of The New Vision Cards stowed under the bed in some boxes today and thought why not give this a go.
Before shuffling the cards, take a deep breath. Shuffle the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana together until you are satisfied. I usually shuffle seven times. In Numerology 7 is the number of intuition and the spiritual number that is always seeking the truth. Once all 78 cards are shuffled, the Tarot Cards should be spread face down in a fan-shape. Six cards should be selected and placed face up. These six cards will form the basis of The Healing Tarot Spread.
The Meaning of Each Spread: 1,2,3,4,5,6
Each of the six positions of the Healing Spread has a specific meaning. The positions and their meanings are:
1. Emotional Block: This card reveals the greatest emotional block, issue, or trauma from the past. This block is likely preventing you from moving forward.
2. Past Relationships: This card examines how your emotional block has affected your past relationships.
3. Present Relationships: This card delves into how your emotional block is affecting your present relationships, as well as how it is affecting your personal growth.
4. Revelation: This card reveals what new things can be learned from the current exploration of your hidden emotional blocks.
5. Guidance: This card gives suggestions and advice as to what might be done, emotional or otherwise, to get past your own personal blocks and encourage healthy emotional growth.
6. Spiritual Lesson: This card examines the spiritual lesson that can be learned from the current exploration of your hidden emotional blocks.
The Healing Spread of the Tarot is not quite the same as most Tarot spreads. It is designed to locate that which is preventing you from moving on and enjoying life. While the Tarot cannot heal these wounds for you, it can perhaps give some clues as to how to begin the healing process.

Are you curious what I got from the spread above?
1. Emotional Block: Knight of Pentacles
This card reveals the greatest emotional block, issue, or trauma from the past. This block is likely preventing you from moving forward.
The suit of Pentacles relates to the earth element and is representative of money, financial resources, material possessions, career and the physical realm. The Knight of Pentacles sits upon a heavy plow horse in the midst of a field. In his hands, he carries a single gold coin. His eyes reflect careful thought and consideration. The Knight is engaged in the often toilsome, routine efforts required to realize the dreams of his heart. He is building the foundations to support his dreams and his goals.
There is a certain element of perfectionism associated with the Knight of Pentacles.
2. Past Relationships: The Wheel
This card examines how your emotional block has affected your past relationships.
The Wheel of Fortune is about keeping optimistic and having faith in the Universe that it will take care of the situation in the best way possible. You need to remain optimistic yourself, thinking positively and keeping as upbeat as possible. Through meditation and visualization, the Wheel of Fortune can assist and reinforce your intention to bring increased abundance, good fortune, and prosperity into your life. This archetype allows your life to turn in more positive directions if you are willing to grow and expand. This is also a ‘lucky’ time in life when you are sensing the action of fate and destiny working in your favor. You may even be witnessing miracles or a very fortunate series of events.

3. Present Relationships: 2 of Chalices
This card delves into how your emotional block is affecting your present relationships, as well as how it is affecting your personal growth.
The Two of Cups shows the beauty and power that is created when two become one. The card reflects balance, mutual respect, and harmony in relations with one another. There is no ‘I’, just ‘we’, and both parties are focused on a mutually beneficial outcome or win-win situation. The Two of Cups typically points towards a relationship that is based on mutual attraction and romantic inclinations. It reflects the clear, nurturing, supportive and heartfelt exchange of emotions that is the gift of a romantic relationship. The Two of Cups represents a love that is nurturing, creative, clearly focused, inspirational and equally fulfilling. In a reading, this is often a beautiful start to a new romance in which you will experience understanding, harmony and deep love between two souls. The seed has blossomed into a tree of appreciation.
Kindness and thoughtfulness will bind your two hearts together with the feeling of being simultaneously very special to one another.
4. Revelation: 9 of Wands
This card reveals what new things can be learned from the current exploration of your hidden emotional blocks.
The Nine of Wands shows a weary, injured man who holds a staff as though in a posture of final defense. He has fought the battle and won. He is protected by a number of wands behind him that appear like a wall around him. He appears drained and exhausted as he leans on his wand but he is ready to go to battle again. He has the look of determination in his eye to overcome this final challenge and reach a point of accomplishment and victory. He stands up for what he believes in and holds firm in those beliefs.
The Nine of Wands suggests that you are so close to completing a particular project or task but at the last minute, you are faced with yet another challenge or setback. Know that you have the inner resources necessary to overcome any difficulty you encounter, even though it may seem impossible at the time. You are so close to finally achieving success, do not give up now! The Nine of Wands is a sign of hope and encouragement that if you stand firm and strong against your challenges, you will achieve your goal. The challenges before you now are only the last bit of darkness before the break of a wonderful dawn.

5. Guidance: Knights of Wands
This card gives suggestions and advice as to what might be done, emotional or otherwise, to get past your own personal blocks and encourage healthy emotional growth.
The Knight of Wands is seen riding upon his horse, which rears up in the intensity of the Knight’s quest for success. The Knight’s face bears the determination of one bound to succeed. The plumes from the Knight of Wands’ helmet and the decorative tassels hanging from his back and arms are the color of flame and he, like the Page, wears a shirt covered with the symbol of the fiery salamander.
The Knight of Wands is an ‘act first, think later’ type of guy. He is impatient and impulsive, with a love for action. The downside to the Knight of Wands is that while he is bursting with energy and enthusiasm, he has a tendency to rush into things without much consideration for the consequences of his actions. He sets off on his journey in haste and often fails to have a clear plan of attack and this may negatively impact his chances of longer-term success. He is so focused on being the best and of fame and glory that he almost forgets to plan ahead and to keep sight of reality. The Knight of Wands can also come across as aggressive and overly ambitious. He is highly insistent even if others stand in his way, criticise him or challenge him.

6. Spiritual Lesson: King of Wands
This card examines the spiritual lesson that can be learned from the current exploration of your hidden emotional blocks.
The King of Wands holds a blossoming wand in his hand, representing life and creativity. His throne and cape are decorated with the lion and the salamander, symbols of fire and strength. The salamanders biting their own tails represent infinity and the ongoing drive to move forward against all obstacles. His robe is bright orange like a flame, and his crown has the shape of tongues of fire.
The King of Wands represents pure fire energy. Unlike the other Wands court cards, he is not so interesting in actual creation and creativity, or in dreaming up ideas and implementing them himself. Instead, he is more inclined to take an idea and change the world to match his vision. As such he is a natural-born leader of all kinds of people, and he is very visionary. Once he sets himself a goal, he sticks to it and ensures that he can make it happen with the support of those around him. People naturally gravitate towards this King as they know he will get things done and will do it very well. He is a master, too, at being able to get other people to do his work for him and keep them on-side throughout the process.
