Loss Tarot Spread

Loss Tarot Spread

Everyone has had some type of loss or another.  We all experience it, but we all react to it differently.  Sometimes, when we feel loss, it shocks us and can be painful.  This spread in the Tarot is meant to help you when you experience some kind of loss that brings about fear and pain.

This is a seven-card spread and is very easy to do.

Always have an open mind when you start any spread.  First, shuffle the deck and then place the top seven cards facing down on the table in a ¾ fashion.

Show each card one at a time.  The meanings of the cards are:

  1. A representative of who you are.  When you find out what causes your loss and how much you are worried.
  2. How you look at your feelings after a loss and which direction you go.
  3. Someone who can help you to move to the right place after your loss.
  4. Once you have taken the initiative to understand the loss and how your thoughts and feelings cause your actions.
  5. It shows the gatekeeper to growth, and it is someone who has seen this or went through this loss before.
  6. How you are facing the loss and how alone you are.
  7. The cause of your loss and the feelings and thoughts that you have, if this overlaps, then it means that something is overlapping in your life.

Tarot Cards

Take time to learn all of the cards and suits in the tarot deck, including:

  • Suit of Swords
  • Suit of Pentacles
  • Suit of Cups
  • Suit of Wands
  • Major Arcana

Write a short paragraph about the spread you have in front of you and keep it in a personal journal.  This will help you remember the cards and help you have a longer time to interpret what they mean for your past, present, and future.

Use your journaling to help yourself grow and to challenge yourself.  Write down all of the things that you have faced in your life, and let the cards guide you and help you.

Suit of Swords

The Suit of Swords is one that helps to tell thoughts and personal things.  The Swords are there to look deep into the mind, and the element of the Swords is the element air.  These cards can remind you of what you have done and the fears and challenges that were seen in order to reach goals.

These are cards that are mainly represented in the Swords suit.  These cards can be associated with conflict, and not all people are able to reach their goals or what they are working towards.  The Swords also represent personal intellect and how you are able to see things instead of how the emotions control you logically.

Suit of Pentacles

The suit of Pentacles is a symbolic card that has different symbolic meanings.  This can be satanic worship or Wiccan beliefs but it is seen in different religions.

Pentacles represent wealth and the Earth element.  This deals with wealth, being materialistic, having possessions, and income.  The Pentacles represent more than wealth; but they represent being grounded and taking care of your life.  You can take care of issues that can be fixed and have goals and obstacles along with desires.

Suit of Cups

The cups represent the vessel and the element of water.  There are different cups that show you different things, such as the Suit of Cups, which usually deals with females and emotional situations that come in life.

Some symbols are used with these cards, and the vessel is usually something that will hold liquid, which is considered a female (cup).  So when looking at the Suit of Cups, it represents someone that will think with logic and someone that is strong in their spirituality.

If you see the cups a lot when a reading is happening, it probably means that you are someone that is very emotional and that you are personal to what the reading is telling you.

There are times when your emotions will be good and times when they will be bad, so if there is a reading that you get and it has a lot of cups in, chances are it can be either a good reading or a bad reading.

Suit of Wands

The Wands cards are also known as the rods, and they are part of some of the Tarot decks that you can buy.  These are part of the magic part of the tarot reading.  A Magician will have a wand, and so do witches and wizards.  They use the wands to cast spells.

The wands will show when there is energy in a reading and when things need to be accomplished.  The wand will show you that you can affect other people if you are around them.  Your desires affect others.

Major Arcana

The first set of cards in the tarot set is the Major Arcana, and it is different than the Minor Arcana.  The Major Arcana is divided into allegorical symbols called the Journey of the Fool instead of suits, like a regular playing deck of cards would be.  So using tarot cards will be a symbolic journey, and it can help you interpret all of the things going on in your life.

The Major Arcana will show you a scene that focuses on people, and it will have different descriptions and different symbolic meanings.

If you want to understand the cards better, you can ask your psychic to give you a tarot reading.  This can allow you to learn to understand the meaning of each of the cards.  If you want to have a highly recommended expert to do your reading, contact someone at PsychicOz.com for all of your tarot card reading needs.
