Where in the World (should I move, will I travel, is my soulmate etc) ~ Tarot Spread
This is a tarot spread that uses the Synchronicity of the cards, and not the card meanings, to determine Where in the World by the Tarot cards. There are several ways you can determine location, however, I find they can be a bit difficult. A while back, I made this list of countries, and what tarot cards represented them as a card combination. But what if you don’t get those card combinations? I needed to make a new system.
Do not worry about reading card meanings. Instead, do the following. Separate the major arcana from the minor arcana cards.
Where in the Word by the Tarot Cards.
Shuffle and cut the Major Arcana cards. Turn over the 1st card only. See what card it is. The list below will tell you what continent you are in.
Fool, Magician, High Priestess: Africa.
Empress, Emperor, Hierophant: Europe.
Lovers, Chariot, Strength: Asia.
Hermit, Wheel of fortune, Justice: North-America.
Hanged Man, Death, Temperance: South-America.
Devil, Tower, Star: The Caribbean
Moon, Sun, Judgement: Oceania.
