An “Ideal vs. Real” Credibility-Gap Spread

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.
