The Crown of Enlightenment Spread was developed by me in 1987 to help my clients who felt they were lost on their path and didn't know which way to turn. This unique spread provides a very informative roadmap to help you get back on track.

You will need two Tarot decks to perform this spread for the first time. One deck needs to be at least 78 cards and this one is what I'm referring to below as the main deck. The second deck uses only the Major Arcana cards. For this deck, you can either use a Majors only one like I did here or you can select the Majors from another deck. The main deck is used for positions 1 - 6 and the Majors only deck is used for position #7. The reason this is done is to help clarify what your main Spiritual Purpose or Mission is in this life and to do this, the Major Arcana cards need to be used since they represent higher purposes.
I don't recommend doing this spread more than once per year.

There are two ways to re-perform this spread after you've already read it the initial time. You can lay the entire spread out as it was from the previous year and then lay new cards from the main deck on top of the first 6 cards. This method is a great way to check how you're progressing on your path. You can also just lay down the 7th card and lay out all brand new cards for positions 1 - 6. The reason the 7th card is kept the same is because your main Spiritual Purpose/Misson for this lifetime does not change. If a card you might view as "negative" should appear in position 7, do not despair because you are most likely bringing issues from past lives into this one that need to be worked on or corrected during this lifetime so you can continue to grow. These kinds of cards in position #7 need to be viewed as challenges and not "negative."

Card #1 represents where you are now.  Card #2 represents how you got to where you are now.  Card #3 represents the lesson you learned or are still needing to learn.  Card #4 represents where you need to be on your path.  Card #5 represents what you need to do to get there.  Card #6 represents the challenges you face to get there and Card #7 represents your main Spiritual Purpose/Mission for this lifetime.
