Tarot: Spirit Guide Reading

June 17, 2010


1) What am I to learn?
2) Elaborate
3) What do I do?
4) What should I avoid?
5) What is your purpose?
6) How do I work with you?

Reading: I’m using 2 decks for this reading:  Alchemical Tarot Renewed and Circle of Life.  Pop out card was World from ATR telling me everything is going as it should.  Telling me it is all part of the plan.  Question 6 was added late in the reading.

  1. 4 of Vessels and 3 of Wands – put together in partnership
  2. Lovers and 2 of Wands – We are to work together.
  3. 9 of coins and Chariot – keeping growing and moving forward
  4. Empress and 4 of Chalices – avoid imbalance and arrogance.  Don’t look to the past or cry over spilled milk.
  5. King of Swords and 8 of Wands – to protect and because two heads are better than one.
  6. Star and 7 of Wands using the Lady’s love and caring to break through defenses.

Adding all the ATR cards (before question 6) I get 22 which is the World and it reduces down to Emperor.  Telling me this spirit guide is part of Zeus’ plan for me.

After question 6, I get 39, reduces to 12 Hanged Man, reduces to 3 Empress.  To aid me in finding a different point of view on/for Hekate.

Adding all the CoL cards (before 6) I get 26 which reduces to 6 Lovers, about forming bonds.  After adding #6, I get 33 which reduces to 6.

Adding all cards before #6, I get Hanged Man and Empress.  Adding after 6, I get 9 for Hermit telling me to seek my answers withing aka mediation.

Adding the reductions together pre-#6, I got Wheel which reduces to Magician.  This change put in place by Hermes and it so happens that this occurred on the day I dedicate to him.  Post #6, I got 9 Hermit.

Summation: So what this all tells me is that this spirit guide was put into place at Zeus’ request by Hermes to aid me in working with the Lady and to get past my self-defenses that are hindering my progress.  This is a partnership, not a superior and inferior relationship.  That to do this I need to use meditation, self-love and probably lots of patience.  From looking over the cards, it isn’t going to be an easy progress.  I foresee headaches and frustration in my immediate future but the long term result, if I stick with it, will make it worth the effort.

This was the first time I’ve read using two decks together.  I worked out quite well and was much easier than I expected it to be.

    Very cool! I’m glad you were able to figure it out!

    The using two decks strategy sounds interesting too…

      I was a bit surprised how effective it was. I used the decks I have dedicated to Zeus and Hekate.

      I have two fairy decks by Froud that I’m tempted to try this with…

    Would you mind if I steal your spread? 🙂 Right now I’m getting the itch to do a reading, and I seem to work/tune in a lot easier with a structure established by someone else when it comes to tarot. And honestly this spread seems to handle every question I’m having right now.

      go for it. I picked it up from somewhere (found it in some old tarot notes) and added #6.
