Halloween Spread

Ace Pumpkins 250 Not for the faint of heart (or spirit), here’s a Halloween Spread I’ve created to descend into the murky psyche while carrying the torch of truth.

This spread can be used with any Tarot or oracle deck, as well as runes.

Halloween Spread

You can choose one card for each position, or multiple cards:

Ghosts: What is haunting me from my past? (Recurrence)
Bats: What is driving me batty at this time? (Irritations)
Graveyard: What needs buried right now? (Surrender)
Cobwebs: What is a source of confusion for me? (Uncertainty)
Wicker Man: What needs burned right now? (Purification or Removal)
Monsters: What am I afraid of right now? (Fears)
Jack O’ Lantern 1: What needs illuminated from within? (Awareness)
Jack O’ Lantern 2: What do I need to carve out time for right now? (Priorities)
Trick or Treat Bag: What goodies do I offer the world? (Gifts and Blessings)

Do let me know if you try out my Halloween Spread, as well as how it worked for you!

Tarot Cards Animated in Disney Movie Princess and the Frog

Princess Frog 200 My family and I saw The Princess and the Frog in the theater last year, we were utterly delighted with the stunning animation, vibrant colors, hilarious dialogue, memorable characters and toe-tappin' jazz music.

Apparently, we weren't the only ones, because this movie ended up nominated for three Academy Awards.

Arguably the coolest thing was the mention and use of Tarot! Admittedly, it was the villain–the Shadowman–who used Tarot cards for nefarious ends, but it was neat to not only see actual cards used, but used correctly!

Disney must have done their homework.

One of the cards in the reading showed an X at the top (Roman numeral 10) with a man carrying a burdensome load of sticks (obvious reference to the 10 of Wands, although no suit name was used). Disney brought the the 3-card Past-Present-Future reading to life by "animating" each card. For example, for the 10 of Wands, the man carrying the load comes to life and becomes henpecked by a woman and further burdened by future challenges.

Shadowman Yes, I realize it's not great that Tarot has once again been relegated to use by charlatans like the Dr. Facilie aka Shadowman, but Mama Odie, the affable, slightly-crazy voodoo lady in the bayou, helps show that magic and intention can also be wielded by noble people with good intentions to serve others.

Also, it was great to see a heroine of color, as well as a strong, talented, confident female who works hard for her dreams and doesn't need someone else to save her. If I could sum up The Princess and the Frog, it would be that hard work + dreaming + flexibility + remembering what's important often = what you need, as opposed to what you want, and also can help redefine what it means to be "successful".
