Sasha Graham’s Tarot Card a Day Blog

Feeling Blue and Don’t Know Why Spread

Every now and again, you’ll wander into a lush, purple patch of melancholy. You’re down in the dumps for no particular reason. Logically, there is nothing to be bummed about. You have your looks, your health, material stuff – still – you are blue.

There are a few options available – pout around the house, mope into your coffee, crawl back into bed, collapse into a shame spiral, seek solace at the bottom of a pan of dark chocolate anything, glare at the happy people around you. That’s all fun for about five minutes.

While whining to my sis on the phone about the way I felt – she, as always – offered gentle clarity. She told me there is no reason to feel guilty on top of feeling grumpy. Emotions exist for a reason. Figure out why you are sad and learn from it. Then, you come out the other side with renewed clarity.

She inspired me to create the Feeling Blue and Don’t Know Why Spread




1.            2.                        5.




Cards Positions

  1. Why you are blue.
  2. Something important you forgot.
  3. It will all be okay because. . .
  4. Your secret weapon is. . .
  5. Action you can take right now to feel better.

When you have finished this spread, you must do the thing suggested by the fifth card.

Now, don’t you feel better? I do.
