There are many ways to read tarot cards, and the meanings can vary distinctly from person to person.
This is a simplified variation of the mandala spread, and it isn't meant to be a professional reading. You'll be asked to choose cards nine times. As your cards are revealed, ponder of what specific meaning they might have regarding your life. If they seem negative, ask yourself if you perhaps need to make some changes. Perhaps the cards are referring to someone else causing you strife. Have fun, and good luck...
