6 Tarot Spreads To Improve Your Shadow Work

Shadow work is a practice of healing any behaviors, emotional wounding, limiting beliefs, self-sabotage, or blocks that are buried in your subconscious. This work is important for witches because many of our spells are powered by our thoughts and emotions. Because most our thoughts and emotions happen within our shadow side, our subconscious, taking a long, hard look at those thoughts and emotions can help us release any hidden resistance that hinders our spells. Tarot is an ideal tool to use in this work!

How To Do Shadow Work In Your Magic And Why You Need It

Just like the moon, we also hold dual energies. We have our conscious mind, which is often associated with “light” energy. Then we have our subconscious mind—our “shadow” energy. Though many people think of shadow energy as negative and light energy as positive, it’s not that simple. Shadow energy can be positive or negative. If it’s energy that you have suppressed and it now resides in your subconscious, it is considered shadow energy.
