Tarot Spread: The Spell Checker


This is a great tarot spread to use before casting any spell. It will tell you the probable outcome of your work allowing you to make changes, if necessary. It can also be used to determine the likely outcome of any plan of action.

To use this spread, choose a card to represent yourself and place it on the table before you. Next, shuffle the cards while thinking of your question. I usually say or think something to the effect of "Please provide me with information pertaining to the spell I intend to cast which will be of assistance to me." When you are done, lay the cards out as they are shown in the diagram above.


1. The Past

This card usually describes what has occurred in the past that precipitated you to cast the spell in question.

2. The Present

This card describes the current state of affairs concerning the situation described in card number one.

3. Your Goal

This card describes the goal of your spell. This is perhaps one of the most important cards in the spread as it will often reveal your true motivation despite what card number one may indicate.

For example, you or someone you know may be the victim of a bully. Whereas you may think you're casting a spell to protect yourself or another from that bully, this card may reveal that your true intention is revenge and that perhaps you should reevaluate your intended spell or ritual.

4. The Near Future

This card describes the initial effects of your spell. Again, this is a very important card because it can often tell you how long it will be before you see results, if at all, and whether or not they will last. It may also reveal any circumstances or consequences that you have not accounted for and which may only make the original situation worse.

5. The Best You Can Hope For

This card describes the most you can hope to achieve in the situation at hand and often represents a reality check for the individual. This card may be telling you that you have unrealistic expectations and that perhaps the answer you are seeking lies not in the casting of a spell or performing of a ritual, but in some other means.

6. The Outcome

This card describes the final outcome and far-reaching consequences of the spell. Again it may also give you an indication of the severity or consistency of the problem that you are attempting to address. Sometimes a spell will have great results initially, depending on the situation and type of spell, but later break down naturally (classic examples are bindings and banishings) or can be broken by others.

Hi!

Do you know any spread to know if someone is cursed?

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question. Rather than answer it here I am going to write a whole new blog post about this subject so that more people will benefit from the answer. In the mean time I suggest you use the search feature I have included in this blog to find my articles on psychic attack and protection.

I do not understand this, if the future near and far are positive, what happens if the card in position number five is unfavorable?

What do YOU think it means?

Sorry man, but I'm in the dark. I'll give an example to see if I am right. If I want to know about the results of a spell to attract money, and my near and distant future are favorable, but the card number five is that of hermit, may be telling me that the money will come but it will be little. Am I right?

It means that things have the potential to work out for you financially in this incidence, but it would be best for you to learn to make wiser decision so as not to put yourself in the same position again.

I suggest that if you are having problems interpreting the tarot that you get a copy of The Instant Tarot Reader by Monte Farber and Amy Zerner. It has meanings for all 78 cards in a standard deck for every position in the celtic cross. This should help you in your readings.
