The Ankh Spread

The Ankh

Like the Celtic Cross, here we have another evil pagan imitation of the crucifix mocking the holy alter. The ankh is like the Egyptian version of the cross, and likewise the Ankh spread is shaped in its form. The spread is also similar in working, except this spread goes deeper into the background of the question.

This spread has not 1, but 2 significators, the 2 crossing cards, #1 and 2. They are equally relevant. Going into the background is what this spread is meant to do, so the next 2 cards show the early causes of the situation followed by the triggering causes, the evil force that activated the dormant seed of the early causes. Higher perceptions, card #5 is actually supposed to represent what the LORD thinks about it all. This would be the card that really matters. Card #6 represents the concusion of the matter as far as what must take place according to divine fate.

The bottom pillar further exposes the outcome, but from the lower perspectives rather than the high above. The future is broken into 3 steps. The immediate future is card #7, the next step that is supposed to be right around the corner. Then card #8 shows the image of a surprising experience that comes after. The final card, as always shows the final outcome of the matter, in other words ultimate fate. But keep in mind that if you believe any of this stuff you are worshiping heathen idols.

In this spread there are 2 Significators. They may support or oppose each other.
   
Significator #1

King of Cups

The patriarch of the Cups suit sits on his throne, which is adrift at sea. He is the king of the element of water. The extreme representation of him sailing the seas alone on his throne is as bold of a statement as if he could walk on water. Where is his kingdom? It must be under the sea.

His power is as solid as the foundation of his kingdom, which symbolically supports him. He must be as light as a feather if he doesn't want to sink. What good is a kingdom if it sits on the ocean floor?

Behind him on either side is a whale or large fish jumping out of the water and a ship sailing. He dons the dorkiest crown in the deck, looking like a real nerd. Perhaps that is why he seems so isolated and detached from his world.

Upright keywords: fair, responsible, equity, science, judge, experience, art, creativity, intelligence

   
Significator #2

4 of Swords

In the trump cards there was a card of Death, but here we have one of Death's own. A dead knight or the tomb of one is the character pictured on this card. He just lays there as if frozen in prayer. The creepy image is reminiscent of finding the ashes of a praying man in the geological excavation of the aftermath of a volcanic eruption.

Like the man, the 3 swords are not actual swords but only representations of them. Perhaps this card is a reminder of the famous words of the LORD, that he who wields the sword must be killed with the sword. Maybe that is why the swords appear to be 3 against 1.

He is laying in a holy place, as we can see by the church-like stained glass window. He may be laying in a tomb attached to the church. For the suit of Swords, this card would certainly be one of the lesser evils.

Upright keywords: vigilance, retreat, solitude, exile, ostracize, separated, alone

   
Early Causes

Death

Famine has taken over the land bringing plagues and destruction. The king has fallen dead and his subjects have come to expect the same fate. The Pope or Hierophant stands up to Death when ordinary mortals bow.

The sun is setting between the gates, symbolic of the death of another day. Death rides into town on a pale horse, but this grim reaper is waving a flag instead of a sythe. On his flag we see satanic symbols of forbidden fruit sitting inside a five-pointed flower reminiscent of the pentagram.

The Death card is the most feared card in the deck, and for obvious reasons. Who wants to find out when somebody they know is going to die? Psychic readers will tell you every time that the Death card is not bad, but this is the biggest lie they can possibly tell. How much more lying do you think they do in an average reading?

Reversed keywords: evil omen, curse, destruction, end, finished, plague, sickness, injury, harm

   
Triggering Causes

9 of Swords

A man feels tremendous shame due to an evil succubus robbing him of the oil of gladness. The terrible trauma of having been seduced by a demon causes a profound loss of dignity. To rub it in, the nocturnal emission is so evil that it totally ruins the sheets.

The swords that are mounted above the bed are a sign of extreme cruelty. The man's soul writhes in excruciating pain and agony, humiliated by the sick pleasure that he realizes that the sin has given him. As he facepalms in disgrace, the movie of the climax of his dream replays over and over.

The evil man may have secretly enjoyed and even prayed for the succubus visit. His greatest shame is that he has been caught in this cycle of sin for ever. He pretends to repent but can't break out of the loop.

Upright keywords: suspicion, doubt, fear, guilt, shame, deception, delay, disappointment, despair

   
Higher Perspective

The Empress

The Empress gets to lounge around all day by the pool on her luxiurious outdoor lazy boy in her pajamas. She just hangs out talking on her state of the art cell phone when she's not on her laptop, playing video games, or watching TV. She is like the definition of sloth, having no job nor serving any useful and holsum service in the world.

Her luxury estate is high on the hill. She is queen of the bachlorette party once a month, even though nobody ever really gets married. The more you get to know about this woman, the more layers of sin become uncovered. Her husband is a lucky man indeed.

Reversed keywords: lazy, useless, couch potato, lotus eater, slacker, condescending, sponge, good-for-nothing

   
Necessary Conclusions

2 of Wands

This guy is holding a staff in his left hand and a crystal ball in his right. The blasphemous act of the offer from the devil has progressed quickly. Now we have access to the devil's tools directly. We can see though what's really going on. The guy thinks he holds the world in the palm of his hand.

It is true however that Satan does have the power to give you power over the whole world. This card indicates a very dangerous situation where somebody has fooled himself into thinking that he is getting a good deal.

The deal is, the whole time you are in command of this power you will be fueled by the power of the devil. But like steroids, the power is only temporary. In a short while there will be a price to be paid, and what a price the ultimate price is!

Upright keywords: riches, fortune, magnificence, surprise, wonder, enchantment, emotion

   
The Next Step

9 of Wands

The guy in this card has managed to once again secure the loyalty of his comrads. They are protecting him because he has been injured and he's an important member of the group. They erect a shield of staves to protect their own to give him time to heal.

He gets the respect of a soldier wounded in battle, but he secretly revels in the power they once again present him with. He knows better than to try to command the group through force, so he chooses to manipulate their sympathies. He discovers a much easier form of power to achieve, which happens to be a lot more potent too.

He doesn't even have to lift a finger to control the group, who finally has a cause to support, a reason to come together. It fills the emotional needs of those who seek control and those who seek to be controlled at the same time. The man has learned a new trick from the devil.

Upright keywords: adjournment, pause, courage, strength, endurance, fortitude, guts

   
Surprising Experiences

5 of Cups

Here we find a guy literally crying over spilled milk. It's his own fault that he knocked over the 3 cups and he knows it. He takes a moment to contemplate his mistake. He cloaks his face in shame because of the humiliation that sadness brings him, driving himself deeper into the downward spiral of depression.

He could have had so much more if he hadn't been so careless. The best thing he can do now is pick up the 2 and move along, but it's difficult to do so in the light of the moment. His emotions must temporarily suffer before he can pick up the pieces.

When this card comes up, it is a sign of misfortune and loss. Somebody has probably bungled something bigtime, or so this card would have you believe. The good tidings that this card shows are squandered by foolishness.

Reversed keywords: clumsy, stupid, careless, fool, idiot, return, false projects, bad marriage

   
Outcome

8 of Wands

Too many wands is just too many egos to work together without an extremely powerful leader. Without a leader, the mob that formed in the previous Wands card now becomes a menace without a cause. There is an organized chaos in the mob mentality, and their real danger lies in the randomness of their actions. They are prone to meaningless madness.

The democratic structure that they are so proud of is really just harmonious anarchy. They share the desire to do evil and as long as one guy isn't too much of a jerk, they'll probably go along with whatever the guy says. It may be that idle hands are to blame.

The danger of mob mentality is that nobody really knows who is doing the thinking. Without a leader, nobody has anybody to answer to so they all share the blame. Whever this card shows up, beware of random chaos.

Upright keywords: action, swiftness, messenger, haste, speed, felicity, fast, sudden
