The Horse Shoe Spread

The Horse Shoe

This spread is the devil's word. He tricks us with cute good luck symbols which are in reality just godless attempts to manufacture one's own luck with the aid of superstitious heretical nonsense.

The Horse Shoe is a more in-depth spread than the 3 card version of the Past, Present, and Future, adding 4 extra cards to form the shape of an horse shoe. Essentially the spread works the same way though. Cards #1, 2, and 7 show the chronological past, present, and future as it plays out.

In this spread, card #3 hints at the evil occult influences that are allegedly haunting your path forward. This card is a warning and could signify the devil or demon that is on your back. The top card, the Obstacle is read in conjunction with card #3 to help determine who or what the enemy is. This is the card that shows what stands is your way, what must be overcome.

The next card, #5 should also be added to the mix of the 2 prior cards in the interpretation of who the enemy is. This card has more to do with the environment and who is there watching your struggle. It may be a friend, or possibly an enemy. Next card #6 comes along to conveniently suggest the course of action. The number 6 is the number of man, but also the number of evil. Naturally the devil knows what lies in the vile heart of man.

Past Influences
8 of Pentagrams

In the guise of artist, a man does the work of Satan. This card is a sign of excessive pride and vanity. He takes so much pride in doing the devil's deeds that his ego expands exponentially. Before he knows it, he believes himself to be a god. Unfortunately he has only risen to the height of folly.

The satanic works of the man are proudly displayed at the man's work station. He does batches of satanic sigils before distributing them to Satan's growing army of worshippers. Each work takes on a life of its own, spreading evil in a systematic web spun by the devil himself.

The devil's works could be anything intended to spread his message: any kind of art, crafts, poetry, books, movies, TV shows, new age religions, or any kinds of ideas large or small. One must be careful because in these times satanism is being sold on every street corner in all manner of packaging.

Upright keywords: work, employment, commission, craftsmanship, business, preparation, skill, labor

   
The Present
4 of Cups

This card shows a guy with too much time on his hands. Idleness leads to boredom, which leads to bad thoughts for the heart of man is concerned with nothing but evil perpetually. The guy tells himself how much more accurate his game of darts becomes with every passing drink.

The guy believes that wine and strong drink actually gives him an edge, making him a better man. He would drown in his own self-deceit if he weren't sitting on top of an high hill. Folding his arms and legs in a stubborn stance, he believes himself to be enlightened.

He imagines the toxic swill he ingests to be the blessing of the Holy Grail. A hand emerges from an imaginary cloud once again issuing a cup. The man is caught up in his own folly, deceiving himself at every turn.

Upright keywords: weariness, disgust, aversion, paranoia, vexations, delusion, self-exalted

   
Evil Occult Influences
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

   
Obstacle
5 of Swords

One dominant man laughs as his opponents don't dare challenge him. They are a couple of pathetic losers who know they were outmatched. They even abandon their arms in complete submission and hopelessness.

This card obviously indicates a dominant victory for the man in the foreground. He stands there laughing as he holds 3 swords. He is so proud of himself.

He laughs at others' misfortunes. The person who this card might symbolize in a reading would be most likely a bully who nobody likes.

Reversed keywords: loss, devastate, deplore, despair, abandon, quit, retreat, give up, surrender

   
External Influences
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.

Reversed keywords: division, dispersion, interruption, discord, atonality, separation, break up

   
Suggestion
The Tower

'Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it.'

This is a card of catastrophe. The LORD strikes down vain attempts to become His equal. This is what the Devil of the previous card taught you to do. This is what Eve was thinking when the serpent told her the fruit was good. This is vanity.

Lightning strikes the crowned Tower that so aggressively penetrated the heavens. Upon closer inspection we see the Tower here actually symbolizes the penis. This perverted card shows the action of this organ symbolically through the Tower.

Reversed keywords: destruction, upheaval, chaos, rage, fury, vengeance, catastrophe, serious serious injury

   
Outcome
The Star

A nude woman has one foot on the ground and the other on the sea, like in Temperance. In fact she may be pouring out the elixers concocted in that card. She pours these two jugs out onto the land and the sea.

She is the Star empowered by Lucifer as indicated by the morning star above her. She is the servant of the figure in Temperance who reaps the fruit of the labor of Temperance. She steals the mixtures, pouring them out she symbolically intoxicates both the land and the fish.

She is only the Star because she is the one that got caught doing it. Noboby will probably ever find out who mixed the drinks because the Star isn't talking. She refuses to share the spotlight that she worked so hard to steal.

Upright keywords: diva, prima-donna, superstar, leading lady, headline, main event
