The Metamorphosis of Narcissus: A Tarot Spread for Healing

A tarot spread designed with the Narcissistic dynamic in mind. Empaths are notorious for attracting these types of relationships, as their gentle, sensitive and giving nature makes them an easy target for the deeply wounded spirit that often lies at the heart of the people that they attract.

Card 1: What dynamic in me attracted this person?

This gives the dynamic within the querant that has attracted the relationship in the first place. This may not be an attractive aspect, and may bring up difficult energy or unresolved issues from the past. This is “why” the relationship happened. 

Card 2: Where was I blind to the situation?

This gives the aspect of the relationship that “made it all worthwhile” this is what fed the relationship, and is probably what the client finds it hardest to let got of. 

Card 3: What did I gain from the situation?

This card will represent a challenge to the client, for it suggests the “lesson” within the experience, and this may not resonate at the current time, but will be clarified in the future. 

Card 4: Whats still binds me to this situation?

This card represents a pattern within the client that is likely to still be in operation. This, along with card number 1 is what they will have to work with in the future in order to avoid a similar thing happening again. 

Card 5: How can I cut free of this situation?

This is the forces that the client will have to employ, an aspect of him or herself that needs greater expression if she is to avoid this person. This may actually be what they found most attractive in this person in the first place. 

In addition, you may also draw a further three cards for healing:

Card 6: The current focus

Card 7: How to approach this (the previous card)

Card 8: How to keep on track with separating from this negative situation.
