365 Tarot Spreads: Revealing the Magic in Each Day - Sasha Graham 2014

Conversation with Art and Places Spread

On This Day

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection includes over two million objects and works of art. The oldest, from Egypt, dates back to 75,000 BCE.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art acquired its very first object on this date in 1870: a Roman sarcophagus with Cupid and Eros carved into it became the first piece in this most beguiling and haunted building of New York City.

Summation of Spread

Conversation with a place requires acute listening skills. The High Priestess’s subtle silence and perceptive acute hearing skills are perfectly matched for this activity.

Ready to read your cards outside of the box and take your cards outside the home? One of the most pleasurable experiences to be had with tarot is using the cards to connect with a place or a piece of art. Converse with art objects, the artists who created them, or even with the wisdom of a specific place using tarot as a communication device.

Cast Your Cards

You must take yourself and the cards out of your home for this exercise. Select a location; it could be a museum with your favorite painting, the residence of your favorite deceased writer, or a sacred spot in nature. Create a specific list of questions or ask the ones posed below.

1. What wisdom do you offer me?

2. How does your energy fuel me?

3. What secret can you whisper to me?

4. How do I integrate this knowledge into my life?

5. Why is this place important?

6. What do I need to know?
