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.

This is it

4 of Pentagrams

This is the secret side of the Emperor. He sits in front of his kingdom showing off the the head, heart, and roots of his earthly power. He is rich and powerful because of his master, the devil. The minister of evil greedily clenches the devil's symbol in his vile clutches. He is a conservative oppresser who would go to any lengths to retain his position.

He is firm in his stance, as firm of a stance as possible. The souls of his feet stand atop 2 pentagrams, signifying his permanent attachment to the devil. He has sold his soul and is now the property of Satan. Balancing atop his crown, the pentagram stands for the knowledge of this world.

Satan has been called the god of this world by some, but this is only admission of their own guilt. There shall be no other gods before the LORD. Though it is a mystery why evil is so prevalent in these trying times, we must be strong and not bow before the devil or his servants.

Do NOT do this

6 of Swords

A man takes his family on a lamentful journey. They could be going to a funeral or maybe just to the store. All the card says is the trip they are taking will be no fun.

The picture is like a recreation of the River Styx, with the father acting as the ferryman for his wife and son. All of the swords in the boat are representative of sorrow weighing heavy. The swords are excess baggage that they carry. It could also mean that they have become aware of things they should not have.

Flat calm waters are perfectly still except for their wake. A pale gray sky looms over this card which depicts a lengthly awkward silence.

Upright keywords: route, way, envoy, method, trip, journey, migration, venture, travel

   
Do this

Page of Swords

A swift runner rides a wave of expedience. He skates across the top of the land as if it were ice, making it look easy. He is active and aware. He must be on full alert because his enemies could come at him from any direction at any time.

This guy is a real jerk, which should be fairly obvious due to his apparent lack of friends and abundance of enemies. He is quick witted and sinister in his insults. He takes pleasure not only in other people's misfortunes, but in selfishly having caused their misfortune himself.

He is paranoid because that's the position he puts himself in. Ordinary people spend their lives avoiding tense situations. The Page of Swords spends his life getting into tense situations. He is a born troublemaker.

Reversed keywords: unprovoked, blindsided, cowardice, sneak attack, hit from behind, Pearl Harbor

   
It leads to this

Knight of Wands

We notice from the court cards that the suit of Wands is synonymous with lizards. The fiery garb on his armor goes with the character of the suit. Also there are the pyramids of Giza in the background, for those who know geography. The pyramid, a triangle pointed upward is also the symbol for fire, as it is shaped like a flame.

Knights are mounted riders who are in pursuit of conquest and the spoils of war. This knight is certainly no Egyptian. He rides through foreign soil pillaging the land. He asserts himself with a dominant stance, his horse reared up.

The horse is just ready to spring into action. This is a card of potential energy, symbolizing a man who is ready to go. He is like the thief in the 10 of Wands but this time a thief with honor. He may be on a quest for the holy land, or at least that's what people believe about him.

Upright keywords: departure, absence, flight, emigration, a friendly neighbor, new residence
