Now, try one or more of the following ideas:
1. Meditate on your chosen card, choose its equivalent card from the Tarot of Creativity or another deck and see how the meaning for this card enhances your understanding. In the case of a card with a seemingly negative meaning, use it to help you resolve the block indicated. Use an equivalent card in another suit or deck to help advise you on how to proceed.
2. If you chose a card with negative implications, choose a contrasting card that best symbolizes what you want to manifest in your life. If the card was positive then keep the card. Memorize the image so you can recall it at will. Visualize this card, bring it up often throughout the day for as many days as seems appropriate. If you can’t memorize it, then put the card on a table in your home or on your desk where you can see it many times throughout the day. Feel the emotions and feelings in the card, use the image as a mnemonic device to help you visualize your desired outcome.
3. Find the number in all the suits that match your card’s number and line them up to see how to use the power in all of the suits to manifest what you want. If one or more of the cards are “negative” in feel, know that you are merely in a rough spot: use the cards as wise advice to help you correct your course, and ease your transition. Choose another card in the same suit that best epitomizes what you do want and use it as in #2 above.
4. Bring up the Major Arcana card that matches the number of your card for the “meta-meaning” of your cards number. Use this card as wise counsel to advise you on how to best proceed, or how to better understand your situation.
5. Look at the cards in the suit that precede and follow the card you chose (if you chose the Six of Wands, you would be looking at the Five of Wands that precedes your card, and the Seven of Wands that follows it). See how the progression may show you what you need to work on and how to handle what may happen as a result. Alternatively you can use these three cards as a Past, Present, Future reading to gain insight on your path.
