Testing Personal Energy

Okay, so, I'm a total newbie. I'm going through a number of large (and good!) changes right now and I"m not always really sure what's going on in my head. I feel like I've got a lot of chaotic energy going on, and it's hard to identify.

Can someone reccommend a spread that's good for getting a... well, getting a reading on one's personal energy? One that doens't need a specific question?

Any help at all would be appreciated!

No one else has answered, so this fool will rush in. Several ideas come to mind:
1. You said you wanted to identify the energy. You could do it by using the elements, divide the card into suits and pick:
a cup card for emotional energy,
a sword for mental energy,
a pentacle for financial energy,
a wand for a direction to focus your work.
(Element experts, please jump in and correct any misdirection here.)

Or you could use cards from the full deck for something like this:

1 . . . . 2 . . . . 3 . . . . 4

1 -- where should I direct my emotional energy?
2 -- where should I direct my physical energy?
3 -- where should I direct my spiritual energy?
4 -- my best, next move

At the least, splitting the energy into parts would help you become aware of what's in the chaos.

Let me know if this helps at all!

Notice everything. It's sending you a message.

Fool #2 says:

I use a Pentagram spread both with and without a question in mind. Naturally you could modify the value for each position as you wish, but here's the basic start:

1=where I am now
2=where I'll be in near future
3=what to watch for, what to notice
4=who's my influence now (could also be: "right" path)




Well, that's supposed to be Pentagram-like!

This is one of my very favorite spreads. Hope you like it too.

H iFourLeafClover,

I found this "Who am I" spread in the Complete book of Tarot Spreads, maybe this will help.

1- How I feel
2- What I know
3-What I belive
4-.. and what I will hold on to
5-What I don't know
6-..maybe just suspect
7-This is also who I am.

Or you could do a CC, it is always a good standby for a general reading.
