Tarot Spread: Illuminated Shadow

Illuminated Shadow Spread by Kori Woo (AstreauxBytch)

1. The Potential Self If one becomes aware of their mal-adaptive behaviors and hidden talents/attributes and consciously integrates them with the conscious self, this is the best possible manifestation of the self as whole.

LEFT SIDE (3-5-7) = Unconscious (Shadow) Self
This side of the spread represents automatic behaviors, internalized ideals, and defense mechanisms the querent may be unaware of acting out or projecting onto others.

RIGHT SIDE (4-6-8) = Conscious Self
These are the traits the querent is aware of both positive and harmful or any trauma the querent is aware of being affected by.

2. Advice This is what you need to focus on or do to heal and unify the shadow with the conscious self. Whatever card shows up here is path to self-actualization and also action most immediate that will facilitate healing. The bottom of the deck may offer more clarification on this card.

3. Your Shadow as an Unconscious Identity This is the self you act out when emotionally unstable or threatened in anyway. This is the you that others see that you do not acknowledge. This can also manifest as what you most often project onto other people, usually those close to you or in situations that are mentally/emotionally triggering.

4. Your Conscious Self This is the way you are aware of presenting yourself to others and behavior your consciously engage in order to progress in life. This is who you see when you look in the mirror.
