Summation of Spread

See how the figure on the Seven of Swords appears to sneak away with some swords? This represents the decision of what to bring with you into the future and what shall be discarded to the past. List making is a very Swordlike activity, using mental acuity and calculation.

Using a list-making technique, the Guiding Goals Spread uses tarot in conjunction with your hopes and dreams to create a concrete list. This list helps in your achievement of goals and projects.
