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!!

It's TAROT SPREAD TUESDAY....I meant to have a little round up ready for you today with links to some great spreads I've been discovering online but has a way of throwing things into disarray!! So hopefully that will be my goal for next week. Instead today we will talk and think about the NO SPREAD...spread.

When I was very new to oracles and tarot cards I first discovered the No Spread spread idea in the book that came with the Froud's Faeries cards. MacBeth calls it a faery spread but I have since discovered lots of no spread spreads. Or I should say...ideas or ways to do a reading without a predetermined spread. At times when I work with them they are fabulous and at other times I miss the 'position" spreads...where each card represents a factor or a question. But I am rambling again...lets get to a NO SPREAD method.

Take the deck of cards shuffle them and cut them. etc. Pick out however many cards you wish to use for this reading. Put the rest of the deck to the side. Take the chosen cards and place them on the surface before whatever manner you choose. Now before turning any cards over spend some time looking at what you have before you. Do any cards present themselves as representing something?...For example if you have a card sideways might it represent a block? Or if you have three cards in a row...might they represent a path etc.? Don't push this but if something represents itself to you....then go with it. Read the cards!!!

So there it's spread at all!!! Give it a try. You will be amazed at the wealth of information that flows freely in a no spread reading! I'd love to hear how your no spread readings go...let me know!


  1. Hey Ginger,

    Cool post - I love no spread spreads :D

  2. I'm exploring this too. I actually did a reading this morning which consist of three cards with no positions. Reading turned out ok.
