The Cross Spread

The Cross

With the Cross spread, we suddenly realize how quickly the scenery changes with the addition of a single card. Everything seemed so innocent in the easy 1 and 3 card spreads. It was sunshine and lollipops until they threw in a fourth card and decided to blaspheme the holy ghost by using the symbol to call upon the devil.

They use the devil's cards to get advice from unholy spirits using the sign of the crucifix. The first card is known as the significator, or the card that defines the background of the question and the whole spread. Tarot spreads above 3 cards generally all have a card, at least one card, as the significator. The significator sets the tone for the whole tarot reading.

The second card is supposed to be an image that represents what the devil is telling you not to do. According to the cards, this idea should be avoided. The third card has the image of the devil's advice. If you follow his advice, his promise is that the result will be what you see in the last card, #4.

3 of Wands

With 3 wands, long staffs here, the guy in this card dares to set up a ceremonial ritual for the devil. He sets up the 3 staffs in a way as to form a doorway. He goes into character as the devil's mime, and his insane intentions are to open this imaginary door, which is in his reality a gateway to hell.

The guy in this card has become adept at black magic and should be avoided by all who wish to remain pure. He has become a master of illusion and corruption as the third rank of the suit of Wands. He has become like the devil himself, and holds the power of temptation because he has the power to manipulate reality, though he is only a legend in his own mind.

Still, the position that this card falls is a strong indicator of where the devil has sent a powerful warlock to do his bidding. The thing about conspiracy though is that it's done quietly so that it is sometimes hard to notice. Whatever position of a spread that gets this card is in peril of having all hell break loose.

Upright keywords: established strength, enterprise, effort, trade, commerce, discovery

   
Do NOT do this

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

   
Do this

Queen of Wands

What is the first thing you notice about this card? Is it her unladylike stance, or the black cat between her legs? She seems to project an openly generous attitude, as if offering the sunflower in her left hand as a gift. A sunflower is a very positive symbol, but a black cat is blocking your path.

Everybody knows that black cats mean bad luck when they cross your path. Even though she looks like she offers a treasure, you know it comes with a price. If you accept her generosity, you will also accept a curse of bad luck.

She appears to be a very authoritative lady. She has generally the same character traits as her matching king, but with a less intimidating quality that comes with her charisma. Just be careful what comes with her gifts.

Reversed keywords: opposition, jealousy, deceit, infidelity, disloyalty, betrayal, despair

   
It leads to this

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
