Relationship Spread #1

Relationship Spread #1

 

 

Difficulty: Easy

This spread is easy to read, like a convenient chart. In this spread, court cards generally indicate actual people with the same characteristics. Knights (or corresponding Princes, but not Kings) and Queens are meant to represent actual men and women in this tarot spread. Look for patterns in the cards as always.

Card #1 is the overall significator of the relationship. The 2 columns on either side of the significator characterize each individual’s role in the relationship. The relationship does not have to be romantic. In fact it could be a relationship between a person and a group, or even how 2 groups relate.

The top row, cards #7 & 2, shows the conscious thoughts of each person, or what they think about the relationship and likewise how they view their partner.

The middle row, cards #6 & 3, shows the way each individual feels about the other. Emotional awareness corresponds to a person’s unconscious thoughts that run deep, effecting a person in ways he or she is not fully aware of.

The bottom row, cards #5 & 4, represents the way each person behaves, in other words the stance taken regarding the relationship. The way a person acts may be genuine, but sometimes people are phony and manipulative, so it is best to weigh this card against your partner’s other cards to determine if they match up.

The Significator

The Letter

The Book is symbolic of hidden knowlidge. The element of water got the quality to neutralize all polarities, all possibilities. The Letter is open and shows us a bit of this knowlidge or a few informations. This means news or communication in one direction, opening for new possibilities.

Shallow, not deep. Something is new, perhaps it is information, an idea, or a message from your inner voice. The Letter indicates that you may recieve news soon, but you have to open it before you'll know if it's good news or bad news.

 

 

 

 

The Querent's Thoughts

The Ring

In the area of water (everything flows together to one) the ring shows new connections. For connections we need an inside and an outside, what means new life, new separation.

Karma, cycles, monotony, group work, connections, contracts, promises, and protection. The Ring signifies solidification.

 

 

 

 

The Other Person's Thoughts

The Woman

The Woman represents you if you are a woman. All cards in your spread are interpreted by their distance to this card.

If you are a man this card represents a strong woman with good intent who will have a positive influence on you: a friend, wife, significant other, girlfriend, love. Could also indicate intuition, passiveness, instinct, or patience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Querent's Emotions

The Rods

The Rods represent family quarrels, arguments, heated debate, domestic trouble, strife, cleansing by fire, consequences, and the number two and duality. This card indicates the need to make some significant changes in your domestic situation.

 

 

 

 

The Other Person's Emotions

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.

 

 

 

 

The Querent's External Stance

The Mountain

Obstacles, danger, frustration, roadblocks, coldness, and hard work. The Mountain indicates a difficult challenge that will most likely isolate you from friends and enemies alike.

 

 

 

 

The Other Person's External Stance

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.
