Louniversity: Tarot Tutorial – Surrender Spread

On October 23, 2014 In Louniversity, Tarot, The Louniverse


To honour tonights New Moon Eclipse in Scorpio I thought that I would design a new Tarot Spread. The theme is Surrender! Of course.. you know it’s my favourite way of living and the most frequent conversation that I have with my clients.

If you’d like to know more about the New Moon Eclipse then head here to my favourite babes The Astro Twins for their insights. The part that I’m really interested in is the Scorpio factor! I’m a Scorpio as you may know and I consider us to be the deep sea divers of the Zodiac. Scorpio rules death and rebirth and I’ve found that over the years life really swings more in my favour the more that I embrace change and am willing to reinvent myself over and over.

After all, I believe that life is a journey and is a wonderful spiral of evolving cycles. We are here to constantly make like a Phoenix and let go in order to make space for the new. This is what Surrender is all about! – allowing life to flow so that we feel less stress and are more connected to our mind, body and spirit.

So with this in mind, I have created you a Surrender Spread. The aim of this spread is to remind you of and highlight what needs surrendering in your life and what might be holding you back from doing so. From there you can look at what might be awaiting for you in the space you clear as well as the hidden message that your inner soul system is trying to remind you of.

This spread is perfect to do:

  • Each month on the New Moon
  • At any significant point of change
  • When you feel really stuck
  • When you are ready to invite change into your life
  • When you are ready to surrender!

I would also really love to help you with your own spreads, so if you end up using this then please join the conversation on my Facebook page and leave me a comment if you’d like help interpreting yours. I’d love to chat with you! You can also tag me on instagram to your posts and I’ll see you there.



Surrender Spread

What you need: A deck of Tarot cards. You could also try this spread with your Angel cards or other decks that you like. It’s easy to adapt once you get creative and have fun.

This is a Five Card Spread and I have laid out instructions below. The second card is placed over the first and then the remaining three are laid out beyond.

  1. What do I need to let go of / release / surrender?

You probably already have an idea of this question. If so then deal the spread with this in mind and this serves as showing you what the deeper meaning behind the need for surrender is. If you don’t know what it is that you need to let go of then look at this card with fresh eyes and an open heart. This is not a time for self judgment, only kindness and a will to explore your experience.

2.  What is holding me back from doing so? 

This is the card that provides insight into might be blocking you. This is the position that requires the most surrender from you when reading as it’s easy for us at this point to try and talk ourselves out of freeing ourselves from restrictions. This card may bring up your biggest fear or even an external influence that is restricting you.

3.  What will help me to move forward?

This is your action card. The card in this position shows you what will assist you during the forthcoming transition that you seek. Soak this card up and look at it from all angles. This is the card to dive into and let it bring you insights and a new perspective.

       4.  By letting go of what I no longer need, what will I clear space for?

When we surrender and remove things from our life that are no longer serving for us we clear a space for something new! This is one of the concepts that really helps me when I know I need to move forwards. It can be easy for us to think that if we ‘let go’ then we are losing something, when in fact it’s the total opposite. You don’t lose anything but you do free yourself a great big space to receive. This position might give you some insight into what is waiting for you as you step into your best self.

5.  What secret messages does my inner soul system want to remind me of?

This is the bonus card that allows your highest self to step forward and remind you of what you already know. It’s a card of reassurance, compassion and soul knowledge.
