Horse Shoe Spread

Horse Shoe Spread #1

 

 

Difficulty: Easy

The Horse Shoe is an old classic tarot spread. It is more advanced than the 3-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 4 other cards that help the reader understand how to deal with the Future better. The cards are to be read as follows:

  1. The Past: This card represents past events that are affecting the question.
  2. The Present: This card represents the current state or immediately approaching influence.
  3. Hidden Influences: Things that you may not be aware of, or barely be aware of.
  4. Obstacles: This is the challenge. Obstacles might be avoided, or you may have to deal with them.
  5. External Influences: Attitudes and thoughts about this situation from people around the querent.
  6. Suggestions: Recommended course of action.
  7. The Final Outcome: This card represents what would happen if the suggestion is followed.

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

 

Balance

AKA Justice in traditional Tarot.

Not the scales of a common religious moralist and no longer a cardinal virtue, but the raw, heartless justice of nature.

 

 

 

 

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

 

The Devils

11:00 - Card 9

AKA The Devil in traditional Tarot. Female, Fire, Capricorn.

Predators, perpetrators, the strong over the weak. They are movers and manipulators of fate, but always at each others throats. Time devours its own children and this is the card of that act, for time itself is only a contiuum, it's really time's children that devour each other.

 

 

 

 

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

Heghlu'meH QaQ jajvam!

(Today is a good day to die!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obstacle - This is the challenge.

 

4 of Pentacles

It doesn't always come out the way you wanted. That doesn't mean you can't still enjoy it.

 

 

 

 

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

 

6 of Wands

If you're stuck, the first step to freedom is to examine what's holding you in place.

 

 

 

 

Suggestion - The recommended course of action.

 

King of Wands

Money is the king of all motivators. There is nothing in this world enough money can't buy. The people who tell you otherwise clearly don't have enough of it.

 

 

 

 

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

 

10 of Cups

The most valuable things in the world are worthless if you throw them down the drain. And yes, those are Zebetites.
