My friend posted a Tarot spread on Pinterest yesterday and I went down that rabbit hole for awhile. The research I did encouraged me to retrieve my quest deck and do a spread for myself. I found a spread meant for self exploration and felt that was perfect for this time in my life. I detailed the spread below and the notes I made while reading the cards. (Any and all pointers, tips, suggestions, etc. are welcome) I had a particularly difficult time with the Father of Cups and The Hierophant. Once completed, I researched the Hierophant and discovered a meaning that struck me. The Father, or King of Cups in some decks, still eludes me somewhat.

This was definitely and enlightening exercise. I have discovered some recent fears and insecurities that I am not happy with. The current state of affairs needs to change.
