The Five Card General Present Spread is a method of divination that provides insight into a person’s current situation. This spread uses five tarot cards to explore different aspects of the querent’s present moment, including the current state of affairs, challenges and obstacles, opportunities, influences, and guidance. The first card represents the current state of the querent’s life, the second card symbolizes the challenges and obstacles they may be facing, the third card highlights potential opportunities, the fourth card represents the influences affecting the current situation, and the fifth card offers guidance for moving forward. The tarot reader then combines the interpretations of each card to provide a comprehensive understanding of the querent’s present moment and offer guidance for success and fulfillment. This spread is popular for gaining clarity and direction in the present moment.
