Hero’s Journey Layout
M.Y.T.H. Make Yourself The Hero of your life. A proactive reading which shows how to create the future of our choice. Breaking the card into sections allows for very specific answers.
First decide on the Quest.
Divide your deck in to 5 Stacks
Stack 1: Remainder Cards, those not used in the 4 other stacks.
Stack 2: Major Arcana 0. Fool – 10. Wheel of Fortune
Stack 3: Negative Cards: 5 of Wands; 5 of Crystals (Swords), 6 of Crystals, 7 of Crystals, 9 of Crystals, 10 of Crystals; 4 of Cups, 5 of Cups, 6 of Cups, 7 of Cups, 8 of Cups; 5 of Worlds (Pentacles). (If you are using a deck other than the Voyager Tarot you might want to look through your deck and see which minors you feel are negative.)
Stack 4: Court Cards
Stack 5: World Cards except 5 of Worlds. (Pentacles)
Card 1: Present
Where are you now in relation to your quest. Shuffle and draw a card from Stack One (Remainder Stack).
Card 2: Gift or Power
This is your magic, your gift. The gift that you have to archive the quest that you are on. Shuffle and draw one card from Stack Two (Majors 0-10).
Card 3: Obstacle
The noble adversary, the demon, the challenge, the obstacle, that which could stop you. Shuffle and draw one from Stack Three (Negative Cards)
Card 4: Ally
The helper, that which can help you from within, or other people in your life who can assist. Shufle and drew from Stack Four (Family/Court Cards)
Card 5: Action
Earth cards – Pentacles or Disks. All about action. I Do. What action can you take? Shuffle and draw from Stack Five (Worlds-Actions)
Card 6: Outcome
Put the rest of the deck together. Shuffle and draw one card. Where does it take you where do you go?
