Horse Shoe Spread

Horse Shoe Spread #1

 

 

Difficulty: Easy

The Horse Shoe is a classic tarot spread. It is more advanced than the three-card reading, yet simpler than most other spreads. It is a versatile method that can be used for most queries, though there are other spreads which would go into more depth. Like the simple Past, Present, and Future spread, it contains these cards in positions #1, #2, and #7, but also has four other tarot cards that help the reader understand how to deal with the future better. The cards are to be read as follows:

  1. The Past: Past events affecting the question.
  2. The Present: The current state or approaching influence.
  3. Hidden Influences: Things the reader may not be aware of (or barely be aware of).
  4. Obstacles: This is the challenge: obstacles may be avoided or may have to be dealt with.
  5. External Influences: Attitudes and thoughts regarding people around the reader.
  6. Suggestions: Recommended course of action.
  7. Outcome: The result of following the suggestions.

The Past Card represents past events that are affecting the question.

 

The Anchor

Lifestyle, foundation, roots, gravity, and security in work or relationships. The Anchor indicates a firm base of success and profit from your endeavours. Now is a good time to aggressively work towards your goals.

 

 

 

 

The Present Card represents the current state or immediately approaching influence.

 

The Clover

Realm of Earth

The clover and the sun are a pair. The clover got all the energy of the sun. It is something like a medicinal plant. Highly compressed energy or good vibes (forced by you yourself), materialised (green) in a lot of little aspects or only in one, coming back to you at the right time and then giving you back that energy you need in that moment.

The Clover is a symbol of good luck, hope, simplicity, and nature. This card indicates sudden good luck.

 

 

 

 

Hidden Influences - Things that you may not be aware of, or barely be aware of.

 

The Book

Realm of Water

The book keeps all the knowledge and consciousness inside. All this is present but not obvious or open. It means unconsciousness (dark colours and violet). Its the opposite of the snake.

Wisdom, the Book of Life, facts, things are in good standing, learning, and the symbol of the teacher. The Book may represent a secret of great importance. This secret should be diligently sought after with an open mind, or you will gloss right over it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obstacle - This is the challenge.

 

The Ways

A choice, probability, not knowing, doubts. The Crossroads indicate the need to make a choice. You can easily avoid your problems, but you may wish to address these issues before they grow so big that they will take far more energy to deal with.

 

 

 

 

External Influences - Attitudes about this situation from people around the querent.

 

The Mice

Obstacles, losses, hidden enemies, old debts, secrets that eat away at a person, annoyances. The Mouse signifies some minor losses from which you should recover easily, as long as you deal with them while they are still small.

 

 

 

 

Suggestion - The recommended course of action.

 

The Lilis

If the Sun shows us the full energy, the Lilies try to make a compromise. Fire is leading back to water, the fire is something like framed, it is not free. We use its energy but controlled. Thats why the Lilies look like a candleholder. Eroticism is used to build a family, for example, meanings like this.

Development of the spirit, success, conscience, holiness, and learning to accept good traits and bad. The Lilies signify a happy period accomplishment.

 

 

 

 

The Outcome - What will happen if the suggestion is followed.

 

The Child

The Child indicates youth, inexperience, naiveness, playfulness, and small size. The appearance of the Child may suggest a child coming into your life.
