Discovery Draw – The Fountain (12-card spread)
Today’s draw was The Fountain from the The Fountain Tarot. In this particular deck, this card is an addition to the Major Arcana representing both oneness and nothingness at the same time.
In my opinion, this is what we should all aspire to. When you achieve the true realization that we are all indeed one, all part of the collective as a whole and without separates, then you can reach a state of nothingness. A state of nothingness being where the trivial stresses and challenges of life no longer has as big of an impact on you.
It is this state that brings about the inner Zen that we all possess, but so often lose. I recognize that this is quite ambitious, but nonetheless is that which we should strive for.
I personally adore this card, and it is my favorite out of all the tarot decks I’ve come across. Below is a spread that I created from the inspiration provided to me from The Fountain Tarot.
Top (fixed): The Fountain. This is a fixed position and it should always be The Fountain. If you don’t have this deck, pick a card in your current deck that you closely relate to the idea of oneness.
Before the reading, take this card out and put it in is designated position at the top.
Bottom Middle: You and what you currently represent.
5 cards on the Right: The right represents your internal emotions and unconscious. These cards will show what you are doing right or what you should work on in order to reach The Fountain.
5 cards on the Left: The left represents everything in your physical world – your conscious world. These cards will show what you are doing right or what you should work on in the material world in order to reach The Fountain.
The cards should work themselves upward building a ‘staircase’, which is the path to oneness and nothingness.
