The Driving Forward Tarot and Oracle Card Spread is very straightforward (no pun intended). It is based on the concept of being the driver of a vehicle. The delightful magick of the spread is because of its versatility.
The Driving Forward Tarot and Oracle Card Spread is a great 3-card layout to use. It can reveal the best way to start or continue driving forward on a project or matter.
This simple arrangement can be helpful for specific areas related to work, relationships, finance and also spiritual matters. It can be read with a Tarot deck and many oracle decks too with beautiful results.
The spread, instructions and an affirmation for the reading are below:
Instructions: Reversals are not recommended with this spread.
This card spread’s interpretations can also become more dynamic based on what type of card deck is used. For example, card decks using a hierarchy system such as Tarot (Major and Minor Arcana) or oracle decks which order the cards by life stages using numbering or coloring, will reveal where energy should be focused most often.
Shuffle the card deck as you normally would. Focus on your matter as you shuffle. Begin repeating the three words, “Brake, Accelerate, Shift” in the order that feels most comfortable to you. Next, when you are ready, deal three cards from the top of the deck. Then lay them out according to the pattern pictured, in the order you prefer.
Brake – Where to slow down / What to do less of / Something to give caution to / What needs to come to a complete stop.
Accelerate – Where to speed up /What to do more of / Something to be more spontaneous about / What needs more urgency.
Shift – Where you need to ‘get into gear’ / What needs to change / Something to aspire to / An approach to start using / How to be more efficient / How to accommodate.
Are you using a hierarchy-based type of deck such as Tarot? Remember, any Major Arcana cards dealt out should be where to focus your energy with more involvement. And finally, if the draw result is all Majors, take action more assertively or with more urgency.
“There is a powerful driving force inside every human being that once unleashed can make any vision, dream or desire a reality.”
– Anthony Robbins
