The Astrological Layout
The Astrological Tarot Spread is based upon houses of astrology. This complicated layout takes several steps to understand.
The first step is to interpret the domino for each individual position in the layout.
The second step involves further examination of the main axes. Positions 1 & 7 show the relationship theme, #1 representing the reader, #7 their partner. Positions 4 & 10 indicate motion. #4 indicates where the reader is now, and #10 suggests what they are moving towards.
The third step involves breaking down the chart into triads according to their house elements.
Positions 1, 5, & 9 represent the Fire triad, symbolizing temperament and personal development.
Positions 2, 6, & 10 represent the Earth triad, concerned with materialism, money, and work.
Positions 3, 7, & 11 represent the Air triad, which has to do with thoughts, ideas, and connections with other people.
Positions 4, 8, & 12 represent the Water triad, the realm of emotions, moods, intuition, and yearnings.
Further, other patterns and correlations between certain numbers can be noted. Certain numbers such as the set of 5, 7, & 8 often speak about a particular theme.
Your Astrological Reading
1: Basic Mood
Now is a time to strengthen your family ties. You may even want to consider having a child. Your family life should take precedence. Works involving spiritual communication with ancestors will be tremendously beneficial.
It is best to postpone your efforts to achieve them later, as they will not be successful yet. There will be great obstacles and destruction if you press forward. This would appear to be a negative sign, however works of destruction will have much success. Now may be a good time to organise your plans and develop new strategies for managing the tasks before you.
3: Mundane Life
The Double Blank is perhaps the grandest of dominoes. This domino often symbolises a major change. It is the domino of fate, destiny, providence, and karma. Several new paths will open for you, and you are spiritually and intellectually ready to take them on. However, if this domino is drawn in a single-domino reading, it simply means to ask the question again at a later time.
Bathing in nectar, your happiness shall increase. Friends and wealth will build up substantially. Prospects are good for all things. Your agility will be impressive – quick like a slippery fish. It will be very beneficial should you seek visions in peaceful fire rituals.
5: Fun Things
Remember that you will reap what you sew. Do not allow yourself to become greedy or totally self-absorbed. To do so will leave you isolated and unhappy, even if you had all the money in the world.
Like inheriting a fortune, there is great prosperity, wealth, and well-being. This sign is as money falling from the sky directly into your hands. You have been steady in the long run, and your prospects for success are very bright. Friends will increase, and even enemies will fall under your control. If someone is ill, they will recover in time, the cause being that they have displeased a certain deity.
New unions and the strengthening of established unions are just around the corner. These unions may be secular and/or spiritual, and will prove successful. Be open to change, but do not abandon your values. Works of virtue and power are favoured by this sign. Fire activities are highly favoured and increase happiness much, but works involving water, earth, and fixed objects are not at all favourable, even bad.
8: Hidden Aspects
This sign indicates a great disturbance, and that happiness will be destroyed. There is most likely an enemy, perhaps even a lawsuit. Black magic may have been performed against you. You are being harmed by reciprocal fighting, gossip, or by having gone to a place of much quarrelling. Nothing you do will produce successful results unless you intend to do harm. Now is the time to confront your enemies and settle differences. You should try to find a positive way to vent negative emotions, such as taking action against a perceived injustice. Rituals of making yellow clay stupas representative of deities, saints, or sacred happenings would be beneficial.
9: Higher Views
Spontaneous strength arises from within, like wind fuelling the fire. Dreams and fantasies lead you to your correct path. Activities of power and destruction have great potential when used in accordance with a higher power. More offerings should be made to your spiritual protectors. Results will be good for what you wish to achieve, though works involving water will only be mediocre.
This sign indicates a growth in popularity. There may be fighting, but you will be victorious. Fame may yield fast wealth or fortune in smaller scattered pieces. If dispelling ghosts, you will be successful if you offer small gifts such as tea.
You are standing before a blank canvas and have the freedom to choose how you fill it. New powers and energies will be available to you if you are open to them. Your choices will determine your future.
12: Hopes and Fears
This sign indicates great stability, and that projects already begun will meet with success. Generally, a favourable sign, the only problem may be a delay in travel, as this is a sign of staying in one place.
