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.

King of Wands

Here we have the lizard king sitting on his throne. He is the supreme commander of the entire suit of Wands, the dominant male of the dominant suit of the Minor Arcana. He wears a red robe, as the ruler of the suit of fire. He bears the secret occult symbol of the lizard eating its own tail.

The king sits there as if he owns the world. He appears to be more of a passionate fan of his own work than anything else. He watches the action that he has set in motion play out for his own amusement. Any people under him are his pawns.

Whatever his whims, it is certain that the people will be the ones who bear the brunt of his decisions. Where this card appears in a reading, there is a man of high influence that can not be overlooked.

Upright keywords: friendly, generally married, honest, conscientious, thoughtful, secure


Your Thoughts

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

Their Thoughts

Knight of Pentagrams

A heavy set knight rides a slow dark horse. He embodies the characteristics of stubbornness and evil pride. Pride is considered the most deadly of the sins. He takes his time trotting on his way because he savors his status and the attention it commands.

The black horse and knight can also stand for an incubus. An incubus is a male demon that rapes women in their dreams after seducing them in the guise of their prince charming. They fool them into believing they are in love and married. Then after the woman wakes up she realizes that she made love to a demon, forever humbling her.

The card may mean that the evil twin of prince charming will pay you a surprise visit. Whatever position the card appears, it shows the character of a romantic seducer. He wants to sweep a woman off her feet so she's easier to take advantage of.

Upright keywords: messenger of all sins: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, pride


Your Emotions

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

Their 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.

Reversed keywords: pleasure, excess, debauch, party, mena je twa, groups, intercourse, public display


Your 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

Their Facade

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.

Reversed keywords: administration, circumspection, careful, avarice, precaution, testament
