In the Chakra Tarot spread each position is aligned with a chakra and depicts influences, blockages or advances to healing and completion of mind, body and soul. Sometimes people need reassurance that they are being honest with themselves and others, and this is a good reading for that. It’s also a good spread for those who may be confused about their own emotions and intent.
The Reader should pick seven cards for the positions in the Chakra Tarot spread below and lay them out in a vertical line starting at position one and ending with position seven.
1 I Know : Crown Chakra
The situation from the Subject’s perspective; it is what they already know about a situation. With certain cards in this position a Reader can see how self-aware the Subject is and any blockages here can represent issues around self-realisation.
2 I see: Brow / 3rd eye Chakra
This position reflects how the Subject views the situation. It is important for the Reader to consider what the Subject ‘sees’ and how it differs to what they ‘know’. Importantly, the Reader should use this position to understand whether their Subject is seeing with clarity or not.
3 I speak: Throat Chakra
The card in this position will show the behaviours, characteristics and opinions the Subject is expressing to the outside world. Here, a Reader can consider whether the Subject is being honest in their dialogue with themselves or others.
4 I love: Heart Chakra
This position points to important and close relationships. A Reader should look at the difference between the ‘I love’ and ‘I feel’ cards; the card in this position is more likely to represent the state of enduring, unconditional love or relationship.
5 I can: Solar Plexus Chakra
This position should illustrate what the Subject believes they can do in their situation. It could highlight major obstacles or advances and their influence on the Subject. Here the Reader should be able to determine levels of self-esteem, determination and the Subject’s sense of personal power.
6 I feel: Sacral Chakra
The card in this position should define the Subject’s emotional reaction to their situation and how this translates to their relationships. It should also highlight the emotional capacity of the Subject; meaning the Reader should be able to glean whether the Subject is at the end of their tether or whether there is still hunger and passion their situation.
7 I have: Root/Base Chakra
The Subject’s physical reality and their perception of it, are they succeeding or just surviving? It could relate to a job, money or home. The Reader should establish whether the Subject feels stable; questioning if their foundations are strong enough for their current situation.
