April 2003 Spread of the Month

I have a passion for anything to do with tarot and story. This Tarot Characters spread is taken from Kathleen Olmstead's The Girl's Guide to Tarot. It's designed to answer questions about fictional characters in literature. It can also be a great spread to use for inspiration when devising your own story characters.


Position 1 - What is the character's motivation?

Position 2 - What is her downfall (tragic or otherwise)?

Position 3 - What is her greatest asset?

Position 4 - What is her greatest challenge?

Position 5 - What is she looking for?

Position 6 - What should she do next?
