Tarot is one of our most amazing and versatile forms of divination. It can be used to answer simple yes and no questions, it can be utilized to give full narratives of events that are about to unfold, or they can be used to gain a deeper understanding or a shifted perspective into a situation or scenario.
In Wicca, many Witches utilize the cards to understand if their pending spellwork is beneficial or if the spell should not be performed. For growth masters, the Tarot can be a window into the next step of growth on your magickal path.
Originally written for day 1 of The #30DaysMagicalRoots Challenge, this card spread can be used to understand any next step on your path — mundane or magickal!
Next Growth Step Tarot Spread
The cards in this spread are to be laid out in a stair step pattern, with card number 1, which represents the full next step, at the top of the stairs to your goal, and the other cards being the stepping stones to attain that goal. Ask your question before picking the card from the deck. Ask your question again, as you lay the card down into the spread. After laying all of the cards down in the spread, ask your question one last time, as you turn the card over.

So… I did my reading and this is what I got https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9145f8745eab25c067a436d63209de1b6a68d12066a2d64282cb4356021f0f9c.jpg
I understand the meaning of the cards but what gets me is the fact that they’re all the suit of pentacle except one. What do you think that means?
Happy Wednesday! Beautiful deck and wonderful question!
When you pull a spread that is primarily a single suit and that suit is shown in a positive light, it means that you’re living up to the energies of that suit! Pentacles/Coins equate to the energy of Earth, so your life is currently stable or has a wealthy undertone! It also means that you should continue working towards gaining that energy in your life or working exclusively with the energy of Earth.
On the flip side, if a spread is comprised of mostly Major Arcana cards, it’s a spread that you should take seriously, as you’re about to experience a shift or change.
Hope that was helpful!!

It’s been happening a lot and not just with the suit of pentacles. You were very helpful and thank you for your time.

Hello! Thank you so much for posting this spread. I’m fairly new to doing tarot readings for myself and wanted to ask you a few questions about what I got. In order of card 1 to card 5, I got the tower, 6 of swords, 4 of pentacles, ace of swords, and 8 of cups. I’m a bit confused as to what 6 of swords would mean in position 2. Does that mean I’m currently in the process of overcoming the obstacle? Or recommending I travel or leave? Or that leaving is hurting my growth process? Also do you think ace of swords in position 4 could mean to let go of trying to force things and instead flow with life more? Or to stop harshly resisting feelings? I’ve reviewed what I think these cards could mean for me one-by-one, but I’m having a bit of trouble synthesizing what they mean together. I know a lot of these cards represent change and movement, but would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you!
