Q Can I use the tarot to help me find an object that I've lost?
BRENDA CHANCE, LOSTWITHIEL, CORNWALL
ABSOLUTELY. This four-card spread is a step-by-step process you can try to reunite you with that elusive object.
For the purposes of this reading, remove all the Major Arcana cards (so you’re just left with the suit cards). The first card you draw will tell you something you need to know about your missing item, such as when you last had it. Card 2 will flag up the places you need to look. Card 3 will reveal extra information, such as the fact that someone moved the item you seek. Card 4 will show you if you’ll be able to recover the thing you’ve lost.
The suits you draw all give you different clues:
WANDS You may find the lost item at a halfway height in your home, such as on a mantlepiece or shelf, by a fire or source of heat and near iron or steel.
CUPS You may find the item at a low height, by water or moisture, for example in a bathroom, or near something that contains liquid.
SWORDS You could locate what you’ve lost upstairs, by a window or in an open space like your garden.
PENTACLES The item could be in the ground, maybe in the garden, by a patio or pathway and near pottery ornaments.
