Four leaf clover tarot spread for Saint Patrick's Day

This tarot spread is designed to help shape a deeper understanding of luck in one's own life. But it can be applied to any area of life that you wish to reflect on. It adapts well to themes like love, abundance, health, and family.

The Four Leaf Clover Spread

The stem represents how luck is found outside of yourself .

The four leaves of the clover represent how this particular attitude toward luck impacts mind, heart, body, and soul.

Using the 22 Major Arcana Cards: Pull five cards at random.

Create the shape of a four leaf clover with your cards.

1- Stem: How luck is found outside of you.

2- Luck in Mind: What you think luck is.

3- Luck in Body: How you feel luck.

4- Luck in Spirit: Your beliefs about luck.

5- Luck at Heart: Your core lesson about luck.

Luck at work: An example of this tarot spread in action

This reading does not have to rely only the 22 major cards in tarot, but that is how I applied my Tarot Mucha deck to this example. I drew these cards for myself.

1 - How luck is found outside you

The World

It is found in all things. I also have the ability to embody it -- it's all in one's attitude.

2 - What you think luck is

The Moon

I think luck is mysterious. It works best with nightly or monthly reflection, and it requires trust and intuition. There is a natural cycle around luck. Following your instinct helps everyone direct and understand their luck.

3 - How you feel luck

The Lovers Inverted

I feel luck is a consequence of our personal choices.

We can naturally marry ourselves to what we feel is luck and we can dedicate ourselves to endeavors that may not serve the higher good.

When we feel confident in ourselves, we attract passion, love, loyalty, and luck.

4 - Your beliefs about luck

The Emperor

I believe luck isn't trivial, but that we can create or rule our own luck.

For most of us, it isn't that simple, though.

I recognize that structure forms luck: how we are conditioned and what we are taught as we develop, and the accident of where and when we are born and our genetics, all contribute to our chances of luck. 

We must face reality/responsibility in some form to believe in luck. 

We are all responsible to one another.




5 - Your core lesson about luck

The High Priestess

Study. Seek your knowledge within. Trust your special wisdom. 

Luck follows self-reflection and self-knowledge. Have peace and you will know how to focus your energy to manifest luck.
