Charting Your Goal: The Parade Spread

The launch date for the Pride Tarot, a collaborative artists deck from U.S. Games, is scheduled for this month, April 2020. This video and companion blog post is going up during difficult global times. We’re in the midst of a world-wide shelter-in-place quarantine and most of our business-as-usual has been put on pause. People are anxious, feeling insecure and uncertain. I’ve found great comfort and insight in my reading with the Parade Spread and I hope you will, too.

Charting Your Goal or Journey

The Pride Parade Tarot Spread

Toward the end of the video, I shared a Parade reading I did with the RWS. Note how Cards 2, 3, and 4 are all reversed, and the final Card 6 doesn’t prognosticate the most desirable outcome. How can you work with intention-setting to re-align the energies and clear a better path to success?

Here, I recited an affirmation to myself as I deliberately turned each of the reversed cards right side up. Then I went through the deck face up and selected a card that represented the final outcome I am now going to proactively and with greater persistence work toward achieving: Key 3, The Empress. I recite an affirmation related to The Empress card as I cover the original Card 6 (Five of Swords reversed) with my selected Card 6 (The Empress).

I am using the power of mind and Logos (power of the word) to realign success factors and clear a path for myself so I can change the prognosticated outcome and defeat the obstacles that had been challenging me. Use the journaling prompts in the worksheet to further reinforce your revised road map and solidify your determination to succeed.

By the way, I did not intentionally time this video to be posted on the exact anniversary date of the Sightsee the Tarot video referenced (the one on Rachel Pollack’s tarot mandala). What a fun synchronicity!

If the final outcome prognosticated by your Parade Reading is one you’d like to proactively change, then after you complete this session, follow it immediately with the one on Changing a Negative Reading and create a tarot mandala.

How to Create a Tarot Mandala

The Pride Tarot is a collaborative 78-card tarot deck inspired by Pridefest and the achievements of the LGBTQIA+ movement.

Published by U.S. Games Systems, this deck showcases 45 diverse, creative, and talented LGBTQ+ artists and allies.  Among them are many I count as good friends, which is why I’m so excited to be sharing this deck with you.

The Pride Tarot follows the structure of the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot, with some of these cards portraying real life LGBTQIA heroes, role models and personal experiences. Support diversity and own voices in tarot by adding the Pride Tarot to your collection.
