“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere – on water and land.” ~Walt Whitman
From the moment we’re born (and some might say eons before then), we begin the journey of our lives. We learn, we discover, we feel, we choose, and we leave the world with the wisdom we’ve gathered along the way.
Within the context of this larger journey, we’re invited to take smaller journeys of transformation, ones that often push us to our limits and challenge us to grow and evolve into wiser, kinder, more loving and compassionate beings. Despite the often beneficent outcomes, these journeys often deliver us conflict and struggle along the way. I offer you the Fool’s Journey tarot spread to guide and support you on the many spiritual journeys you’ll take throughout your life. May it serve you well, Beauty!
Fool’s Journey Tarot Spread
- The Fool: what risk am I being asked to take?
- The Magician: what tools and resources should I bring on my journey?
- The High Priestess: what does my intuition wish to reveal to me about the path ahead?
- The Empress: How can I remain grounded and joyful throughout the journey?
- The Emperor: What boundaries should I set to ensure I continue towards my destination?

- The Lovers: who may I rely on for love and support?
- The Chariot: how might I balance my needs and desires so I may keep moving forward?
When you read the cards in each position, pay close attention to your emotional and intellectual responses. Do you “agree” with the messages that the cards are conveying to you? If not, why? If so, where are these messages leading you?
Remember: tarot readings can only show us the door. We are the ones who must open it. Good luck on the next chapter of your journey, and may you take the next step on your life path with confidence and clarity!
