Thrysse’s Transformational Tree of Life

This spread is laid out in the form of the tree of life. There are three cards in a column on the left, representing who the client is now or has recently been, and what she brings to the transformation. There are three cards in a column on the right which represent who she is becoming. The middle column represents the transformational path and the life purpose. There are four cards offset from the three on either side, to form triangles with them, and a fifth card placed at the base of the central column. The layout is read from the bottom up - the base card is the expression of the transformational path in the physical world. The triangle above this (points down) is the physical transformation, the middle triangle above this (points down) is the intellectual transformation. The upper triangle (points up) is the spiritual transformation, and the central card between the upper and middle triangles is the key to her life purpose in accomplishing the transformation. Any reversed cards, especially in the central path, indicate areas where special attention is needed, as these represent blocked transformational energies.


Card 0: Key to life purpose
Card 1: Spiritual transformation
Card 2: Spiritual past/present
Card 3: Spiritual future
Card 4: Intellectual past/present
