The Relationship Spread

The Relationship

The devil offers relationship advice like a matchmaker of lust. This Relationship spread attempts to break down the realtionship between 2 people using a scientific method of psychology. It is interpreted by analyzing the differences between the matching cards on either side of the relationship.

The first card to be seen is the significator. This card represents the overall theme and mood of the entire relationship. Next we move to interpreting the 2 columns that characterize each individual's role in the pair.

The top row shows the conscious thoughts of each person, or what they think about the relationship and their partner. The middle row, cards #6-3 show the way each individual feels about the other.

The bottom row represents the way each person acts in the relationship. The stance they take could be genuine, or maybe it is just a facade.

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.

Upright keywords: loss, news, alliances, affinity, inheritance, patrimony, transmission


Your Thoughts

The Hanged Man

The poor guy that was lynched on this oddly shaped vine has discovered enlightenment. They tied both hands behind his back and even went so far as to tie one leg behind the other.

Sometimes it is good to contemplate your existence and purpose, to become more aware and in touch with God. But this kind of satanic mimicking of the crucifixion is outrageous. The blatant satanic symbolism of the man hanging upside down on the cross may be the most blasphemous card of the whole deck, in a deck full of abominations.

Reversed keywords: mockery, derision, ridicule, copy cat, impersonation, mimicry

Their Thoughts

King of Pentagrams

The suit of Pentagrams is not concerned specifically with money or material possessions, but it does often represent these things. It is the most wicked suit in the deck, bearing the sigil of Baphomet, the goat-headed devil that speaks for Satan. Occultists used to call upon Baphomet due to the fact that they were terrified of the devil. The cute goat was a lot easier to talk to.

Like Richard Ramirez, the king represents the Pentagram in his left hand, the hand of the devil. Those who follow the devil have certain code words for what they do so they can conspire openly. One of the code phrases for being a satanist is 'the left-hand path.' It looks like that's what we have here.

The king of this suit is a real slouch. He is happy with the way things are as long as he does not have to work. This is a card synonymous with the sin of sloth. Sadly the king's greatest ambition was to watch everybody else do all the work for him while he 'balances the budget.' He is a strong personality who acts like he carries his own weight, but he rides on the back of others.

Upright keywords: vice, weakness, ugly, perverse, corruption, peril, sloth, laziness, mismanagement


Your Emotions

3 of Cups

The suit of Cups started out so pure with the Holy Grail and love, but how quickly does love go too far. The caped crossdresser disguises his manhood to make it seem okay that he'ss going out for a night with the girls. The greatest shame here may be that maybe nobody would suspect the obvious.

An excess of love may run the risk of crossing the boundary of decency, as we see happening on this card. One woman is not enough for this fellow, who aspires to build a harem. He has a good start with these 2 young ladies as they party.

They fill their cups with the wine of excess. The days of the debauchery of the likes of King Solomon are long passed, but the spirit of such outlandish whoredoms has been reborn in recent years. Where this card comes up, it shows that there are people having too much fun.

Upright keywords: plenty, merriment, glad, victory, fulfilment, solace, celebration, rejoice, dancing

Their Emotions

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.

Reversed keywords: novelty act, obscurity, change of plans, new relations, recouping


Your Facade

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.

Upright keywords: authority, overseeing, discernment, examination, vigilance, spying

Their Facade

7 of Swords

A thief looks over his shoulder as he makes away with 5 of 7 swords. Just like the 10 of Wands, their owners were having supper. This heist is not as easy as grabbing 10 wands though. Swords are a lot harder to carry so he can only manage 5 of them. He treads lightly, knowing that anybody in those tents might notice their sword or their friend's walking away.

He is tiptoeing away from the scene of the crime, wishing that he was invisible. In Waite's Book of Black Magic, criminals are encouraged to do heinous spells of unimaginable evil. Waite, the maker of this tarot deck was a sinister occultist who was one of the most notorious proponents of evil that the world has ever known.

Knowing just a little about the twisted mind of Waite, we may assume that the fez-like cap the thief dons is most likely his hat of invisibility. The pathetic spell that the man must perform to even become invisible requires a night in the grave yard, where he must dig up a corpse and steal its hand, which then of course he puts in his pocket for good luck when he does crimes.

Reversed keywords: thief, violation, criminal, get away, burglary, heist, gambling, loss
