Tarot Spreads – There is too many of them!
I want simplicity like the 3 card past, present and future. But I want more meaning than just that.
There are now two spreads that I really like and for me, so far, are working out well. I want to share these with you. The first one I found is in Donald Michael Kraig’s book “Modern Magick“. The spread is called the “The Split Hexagram Spread”. The second one I found here. This spread is called the “The Cross & Triangle Spread”. I am really liking this one including the call for help from HRU.
With both spreads you only use the Major Arcana (22 cards). As a beginner it is recommended to use on the upright meanings of the cards, and since that is still where I am at with tarot…That is what I am doing. I may just stay with upright meanings for sometime. These spreads have been making personal reading rather enjoyable now.
Now the Hru thing. I have been around tarot for only 2 years approximately and looked at many web sites and have read several books but The Cross & Triangle Spread is the first time I have seen invoking Hru. There is very little on the net about this. I have only started this but the results seem way better than before. I find this rather exciting.
There is another spread that looks interesting but I have not really explored yet. It is the “Underworld Spread” from Kim Huggens found in her book “Tarot 101: Mastering the Art of Reading the Cards“.
There is also a new product that looks like a lot of fun and help too. “The Deck of 1000 Spreads“. To see some ways of using it, see Barbara Moore’s Blog HERE and HERE. Instead of a new deck, I think I will get this.
