The Tarot Dance: Love Tarot Spread and Downloadable PDF
Who’s in charge here? Sometimes it’s hard to tell! Relationships can be like dancing. Only one person can lead at a time. Use this spread to examine when to lead, when to follow, and what rhythm you’re dancing at. For this tarot blog hop, Jay Cassels of Sacred Healing gave us the magical topic of dance. Use the Tarot Dance Love Tarot Spread to bring the magic of dance to your relationship. This spread if particularly useful when deciding whether or not to make the first move or next move!
Position 1: Leading
There are plenty of times things flow in unison, like walking hand-in-hand. But when someone needs to step up and take charge, it’s often hard to know who’s going to be the boss. Either both of you want to lead and you end up stepping on toes, or neither one wants to lead and you hang back like wilting wallflowers.
Rather than phrase the spread positions as “Who’s Leading?” and “Who’s Following?” I downgraded it to the most basic. Position 1 is Leading. Are you always leading? Never leading? What would happen if you did take the lead? What kind of leader are you? The card you pull here describes how you experience leading in this relationship or in this particular situation. Alternately, read the position as: What would happen if you continue to lead/took the lead?
Position 2: Following
When someone leads, someone follows. This is not to undermine your independence, your equality, or your moxie! Sometimes, following is called for. There are times we follow because we’re curious about where the leader is taking us. Sometimes we follow because we’re too tired to take charge. We might be plum out of ideas! And sometimes we follow to encourage leadership in the other person.
Position 2 in the Tarot Dance Love Tarot Spread helps us understand how you experience following in this relationship or in this particular situation. Does following feel like going with the flow? Or does it feel lazy? Would it be a welcome respite? What kind of follower are you? Alternately, read the position as: What would happen if you continue to follow/started to follow?
Position 3: Tempo
Every dance has a rhythm. We dance to a beat, from furious to serene. In dance music it’s typical for the beat to be strong and easy to find. But the same is not always true in life. It might drift into nonexistance. It might fatigue your brain with complex polyrhythms. Finding and understanding the tempo gives you a great deal of insight into your expectations and those of your partner.
Get into the groove with Position 3, Tempo. Are things moving too fast? Too slow? When’s the next twirl or dip? Will the band play a fast song or slow song next? Are the two of you keeping pace with each other? The card you pull here describes how you experience the tempo in this relationship or in this particular situation.
