This blog is designed to explore the new Fairy Tale Tarot by Lisa Hunt. But since I LOVE to blog....I am sure I'll wander off into some other musings about fairytales!!

"The Fairy Tale Tarot cards are like gazing into that pool. They reflect different aspects of each of us. They illuminate or accentuate those parts of us that we seek, or deny, or just long to understand. The cards and the fairy tales they are based on, provide a framework for understanding self and the human aspects of life. And maybe the "not so human" aspects too....the spiritual. They are the water in the pool. Clear and shimmering, reflecting clearly and yet also bringing forth tiny glimpses of those wings. It is this aspect of the cards that called to me. I feel they have things to reveal to me and I am anxious to hear them "speak."

It's Tarot Spread Tuesday: The Haunted Path

I'm going to try a slightly different version of the Once Upon a Time Spread in celebration of Halloween.

The Haunted Path
Just as in the Once Upon a Time spread, put the Fool card to the side. You then shuffle the deck and select 5 cards. Add the Fool with the five cards....shuffle and then place them in a single row, left to right. The difference is in the number of cards used and the way the cards are read according to a meaning Any cards to the left of the Fool have already happened or something the seeker is aware of. Any cards to the right are yet to come or are things the seeker isn't aware of. In reading the cards you jump over or ignore the Fool card and read the meanings as follows...keep in mind whether they are to the left or right of the Fool.
1. Card One: Describes the path the seeker is on
2. Card Two: Decribes what haunts the path
3. Card Three: Describes what clears the path
4. Card Four: Describes an alternative path
5. Card Five: Gives Advice.
Depending on a particular reading...sometims all five cards will be to the right of the Fool...indicating what is yet to come or be known....or vice versa they could be all to the left....indicating that which has already passed....or any combination.
