Mind & Spirit | 16 May 2016Tarot Spreads to Unlock Your Financial Future Share article facebook twitter google pinterest When life gets complicated or confusing, it would be nice to have all the answers. Learning to read tarot spreads can provide information not available through our five senses. In Liz Dean’s book The Ultimate Guide to Tarot Spreads: Reveal the Answer to Every Question about Work, Home, Fortune, and Love, she teaches readers how to use tarot spreads for information useful to a more empowered everyday life. As tax season has recently passed, most of us have money on the brain. Here are several ways the cards can teach you about your money, home and security. Money, Home and Security Need to examine your finances or your home situation? The nine readings in this chapter will help you do just that. And here’s a hint before we get started: Be open to a broader interpretation of Pentacles. Sure, they may be the “money” cards of the tarot, commenting on material wealth and possessions, but they can also reveal our own beliefs to us. For instance, do we attract abundance thanks to a positive outlook, or are we stuck in a poverty mentality? By making us aware of our patterns—and of the future we think we deserve—these spreads can help us create change in our lives. As for the “home” spreads, take a look at them when you might move, or try the House of the Psyche to excavate buried issues that might be lurking around your sense of security. And the Feng Shui spread, based on compass directions, will show you how to divine whether or not your home supports your life goals.

In this spread, we derive meaning from the symbols in each corner of the card, which represent the four Evangelists of the Gospel: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Take the Wheel from your deck and place it in the center, face up. Now take a look at the symbols: Top left: Matthew, the winged man; Aquarius and the element of Air Top right: John, the eagle; Scorpio and the element of Water Bottom left: Luke, the ox; Taurus and the element of Earth Bottom right: Mark the lion; Leo and the element of Fire Shuffle the remaining deck, choose your cards (see page 21), and lay them out face down, as shown below. Turn over cards 1 to 4: interpret them first, then turn over card 5, the outcome. You can extend the reading by asking, “If I can follow the advice of the previous cards, what might change for the better?” Then lay another five cards on top of those you’ve already turned over.
