Ankh Spread

Ankh Spread

 

 

Difficulty: Kind of tough

The Ankh Spread is for questions about the causes behind trends. It is similar to the Celtic Cross and Secret of the High Priestess spreads, but it covers the reasons behind the circumstances in question differently, perhaps giving a better explanation of why things are the way they are.

The loop of the upper section of the ankh reveals the spiritual background and causes of the situation, while the stem of the base focuses on prospects for the outcome.

The first two tarot cards represent the two parent causes of the situation. They will either complement each other or show two opposing sides of a conflict, depending on how they relate. These are the significator cards of the Ankh spread.

3. This tarot card shines light upon the early causes of the trend in question.

4. Pinpoints the causes that triggered the current situation.

5. Reveals the spiritual perspective of the subject at hand.

6. This card examines the reasons why this course of action had to unfold, as a means to this end.

At this point, it is good to pause to soak in the meaning of the first six cards before moving forward to the last three cards. The last three reveal prospects for the future.

7. The Next Step gives clues about the immediate future.

8. Surprising Experiences encountered en route to the result.

9. This represents the result.

Great strength, tremendous force, recovery, health, power, triumph. Change is stability.

 

 

 

 

 

Significator #2

Seven of Spades

'Futility'

Moon in Aquarius

Fighting a hopeless battle in vain, with no prospect of victory. Partial success by stalling through lack of energy when victory is achieved.

 

 

 

 

 

Early Causes

Four of Hearts

'Luxury'

Moon in Cancer

Giving in to desire. Excess, luxury, insatiability.

 

 

 

 

 

Triggering Causes

Six of Spades

Mercury in Aquarius

A goal realised. All intellectual faculties agree on the matter at heart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Higher Perceptions

King of Spades

Gemini

An active, skilful, witty, clever, fierce man.

 

 

 

 

 

Necessary Conclusions

Jack of Spades

Aquarius

A pure intellectual, clever but unstable of purpose, a mind full of various contradictory ideas and opinions. He kills his ideas as fast as he creates them.

 

 

 

 

 

The Next Step

Queen of Diamonds

Capricorn

A practical, kind, domesticated, affectionate, charming woman

 

 

 

 

 

Surprises

Jack of Hearts

Scorpio

A man who moves in shadows, who ambitiously lusts for great wisdom and power. His calm appearance masks an ocean of passion.
Ill-dignified: a merciless man of insatiable ambition.

 

 

 

 

 

The Outcome

Queen of Hearts

Cancer

A dreamy, imaginative, tranquil, poetic, and extremely receptive woman. Generous, yet not overly hospitable. She is very dependent on the neighbour cards in determining dignification.
