Here is a spread that attempts to come to grips with that age-old question: “What should I do with my life at this point in time?” It uses the archetypal qualities of the Major Arcana to “set the bar” for expectations, and a second full deck to show any gaps between the hypothetical “best case” and the reality of the situation. The goal is to seek productive insights by which we can “close the gap” through efforts at self-realization when the “ideal” is more desirable than the projected “real.”

If you are unfamiliar with the quintessence technique, there is a detailed explanation elsewhere in this blog. Search on “Quintessence” in the sidebar.

Here is a ten-card mixed-media (cards and dice) spread that can shift between action and inaction as the suggested “best” response to circumstances. Each of the five selected positions has a modifying card that can influence its expression (this is one of my few spreads that includes built-in auxiliary cards). The side-column that holds the most face-up cards will provide the advice on whether to act or refrain from acting over the course of the affair. Transitional turning-points in the matter can be decided in a number of ways: periodic changes over a predetermined period of time (five days, five weeks, etc); assumed or anticipated situational progress; a projected series of specific linked events; etc.
