Experiencing injustice of any sort can be so frustrating and
aggravating! Unfortunately, no one said that this life was going to be fair, or
that anyone is obligated to treat us even-handedly.
However, for those times you do feel as if some wrong has
been done to you—or that you feel life is just so unfair—here’s a spread I
devised to help you navigate through those confusing (and sometimes painful)
As I was creating the Snowland Justice Spread, I realized
that Cards 2-5 correspond to the four elements and, thus, the four special
Signficator Cards that came with your Snowland Deck. So before you shuffle and
draw cards from your deck, get out your four Signficator Cards. Place the
Snowball in position 2 (since it governs feelings/emotions), the Snowflake in
position 3 (since it governs issues of how we see ourselves—in addition to
passion), the Icicle in position 4 (since it governs thoughts, attitudes and
beliefs) and the Cube in position 5 (since it governs earthly matters, in
including our humanness).
Scales —What do I need to know
about this injustice/unfairness/imbalance?
Heart – What is my heart/feelings
Snowflake – How is this situation
affecting my sense of Self?
Feather – What
attitude/thought/belief is contributing to my discomfort?
Cracked Statue – What does this
circumstance show me about being human?
Scales Redux – What do I need to
know/do to bring myself back into balance?
If you draw an Emoting card for Position 2, an Energy card
for position 3, a Mental card for Position 4 or a Material card for Position 5,
the power of that position is DOUBLED—so pay extra attention to it. If a Life
Theme Card (aka Major Arcana card) comes up for either or both of the Scales
(position 1 and 6), realize that you’re dealing with an archetypal life theme
issue that has likely visited (plagued?) you before…and will likely do so again
in the future. In this case, draw a SEVENTH card—a Hidden Insight from Spirit
Card—to give you additional advice on how to understand this recurring pattern
on a deeper level.

If you've followed my work for any length of time, you know I'm not a fan of traditional Significators (and why). Click here to read my blog post for more information.
So I asked Ron to paint four extra Signficator cards for our Snowland Deck not only so readers don't have to pull out actual Tarot cards (and effectively take them "out of play" for a reading), but also to get a "fix" on a querent's state of mind.
My Soul GPS System, as I call it, can be used whether a querent tells you the topic of the reading...or just says "I just want a general reading". You can, of course, use it for yourself, too.
Lay out the four Signficator cards. They are:
You can choose to disclose to the querent what their chosen Significator means, or just keep it to yourself as the Tarot reading proceeds.
Here's what the querent feels and needs for each card:
Recommend Approach to Reading: Gentle. Use "Kid Gloves" and Choose Words Carefully
I've used this Soul GPS on myself and with Noah (our 14 year old). Each time, it's been eerily accurate. Below is Noah and me discussing this Signficator system (he asked me if I was the CIA!).
If you have any questions about the Significator Cards or my Soul GPS system, don't hesitate to ask. Would love to hear how it works for you, too! (To find our more about our deck, including getting your very own copy, visit SnowlandDeck.com).
I'm pleased to announce that Ron and I have teamed up with Ann Murkett and Annikin Divination Systems to provide you with free intuitive readings! That's right: you can take our innovative Snowland Deck out for a spin as many times as you want at MyDivination.com (click here to go to our deck page for your free reading).
You can pick from dozens of different spreads for a reading, or just go through our deck card-by-card to view the image and get direct wisdom (excerpted from my Snowland Deck Companion book).

"We know that all is impermanent; we know that everything
wears out. Although we can buy this truth intellectually, emotionally we have a
deep-rooted aversion to it. We want permanence; we expect permanence. Our
natural tendency is to seek security; we believe we can find it. We experience
impermanence at the everyday level as frustration. We use our daily activity as
a shield against the fundamental ambiguity of our situation, expending
tremendous energy trying to ward off impermanence and death. We don’t like it
that our bodies change shape. We don’t like that we age. We are afraid of
wrinkles and sagging skin. We use health products as if we actually believe
that our skin, our hair, our eyes and
teeth, might somehow escape the truth of impermanence."
Queen of Pentacles: She's usually a dull, shallow busy-body
with nothing better to do than interfere in the life of her grown children,
neighbors, friends, etc. Tends to be a boring homebody that cares more about
appearances and the spotlessness of her home than actual personal connection.
Or, she's a workhorse that prefers the familiar ruts of repetitive jobs; don't
expect this one to be original!
Queen of Cups: She's usually co-dependent, using
relationships to bolster her own (lacking) self-esteem. She may be creative and
inspired, but her escapist tendencies often include benign neglect of her
offspring and/or too much nursing of the ol' bottle. ::hic::
Queen of Wands: This ambitious firebrand blazes through
ideas, projects and people at lightning speed. That's right: if people don't
serve her uses, she'll be outta there. Projects and innovative endeavors are
her game, and if you're hanging on for the ride, you may want to strap a pillow
to your backside when she jettisons you for more useful folks.
Queen of Swords: Battle
Axe? Judgmental Bitch? Perfectionist? Yes to all. Beware all who cross her path
with incorrect grammar, sloppy appearance and abject stupidity, for She will
call you on it. You won't get away with anything in her presence, for she's
honed her hair-splitting skills with a razor's edge.
