This spread is for dealing with change and recognizing your initial reactions to it.
Shuffle the deck and lay out the cards per the diagram above.
Card 1: This card is the change, the Death. This is the sun setting, the inevitable force that cannot be stopped or slowed.
Cards 2, 3 and 4: These cards represent things that have died, aspects of yourself that are gone or have been cut off. They can represent your innocence, ignorance, blind faith, control, or something in its bloom. Name them.
Card 5: This card represents the person you were before, that which you no longer are.
Card 6: This card represents you in response to the change, ways to mourn or sorrow to acknowledge before you can go on. Also acceptance or ways toward acceptance.
Now, if you're below the equator and actually celebrating Beltaine today, (lucky you! It's my very favoritest holiday ever, O yes it is!) you'll probably want this spread instead; and for those of you who are curious, here's the link to my Tarot page, where you'll find plenty of other card layouts, including one for each Major Arcana card. You're bound to find something that fits your situation on this night of introspection and retrospection.
