Gypsy Magic Spread
This is a 21 card Gypsy spread that I did as a general reading for a friend. I chose the Deviant Moon Tarot by Patrick Valenza. There are 7 columns, consisting of 3 cards each. Each column is assigned a 'question', and the cards are combined to tell a story.
Column A: Your emotional state of mind
Nine of Swords
Four of Swords
Two of Pentacles
You're anxious and stressed out about something, but that's pretty normal after having a major surgery like you just had. The anesthesia can affect your nervous system, and it may take a bit for you to start to feel like yourself again. You should be focusing on resting and recharging yourself at this point.
You are juggling something, and this is adding to your stress. Are you trying too hard to make everyone else happy and making yourself miserable in the process? Try just going with the flow, and don't worry so much about everyone else. Sometimes, it's okay for it to really be 'all about you'. Now is one of those times!
Column B - Your home life
Ace of Cups
It's really good, isn't it? It hasn't always been that way, and for a very long time, it was tumultuous and stormy. But now, you've come full circle and luck is on your side. You feel emotionally renewed, and this is very nourishing for you on a spiritual level. You're also experiencing love on many different levels right now, and having feelings you've never had before. You are completely blessed with love and happiness. It's as if you are experiencing a rebirth of sorts, and you know that things are never going to be the same for you again.
Column c - Your present desires, hopes and questions.
Three of Cups
Page of Cups
You are really feeling overly emotional right now, aren't you? Everything is going so well. You can't believe it can possibly continue this way, but you are hoping that it will. The Three of Cups is a great indication that all will be well iwth your health and your recovery. You want to maintain the calm and balance that you have in your life right now. You're having some feelings and emotions that you really need to lay on the table - I would suggest putting a pen to paper and writing a good old fashioned love letter, straight from the heart. There is also something on your mind regarding teaching, or education of some sort, and I'm very certain this involves children. This is something you feel you have to do.
Column D - Your expectations at this time
Five of Swords
Seven of Pentacles
Six of Cups
You're concerned over someone who is behaving in a destructive manner - I cannot tell whether this is you or somoene else, but I really think they are very close to you. Don't give your trust to just anyone. Someone may be working against you, and it is out of jealousy. I believe this to be a female. You are proud of how far you've come spiritually, but you are also impatient and frustrated - you don't see the proof of your hard work yet. There is still so much to learn! Take your time. There is no rush. You'll enjoy the journey more if you don't hurry through it. The past haunts you. Have you done everything you can to work your way through it? It's going to be very important that you deal with the things that haunt you in the proper way, hon. That way, you can move forward anad have the life you want and deserve.
Column E - What you do not expect / what surprises you
The High Priestess
King of Swords
The time is going to come when you are forced to look deep within yourself. There is something inside you - just below the surface- that needs to be brought out into the light and dealt with. It may well be something hidden even from you, something you've buried. You may not even know what it is, but you will have to unearth it and deal with it in order to move forward with your life. By doing this, you will release the invisible bondages that are holding you back. You need to confront your personal demons in order to move on. You have the strength and willpower to do this. You really are the King of Swords.
Column F - The immediate future
Queen of Pentacles
You're going to find out just how strong you really are, and what you are capable of overcoming. Your battle will be with yourself. Physically, you are on the mend. Mentally, you have some work to do, but the good news is that you will come through it just fine. Dig deep, hon. And don't be afraid...You aren't the same person who was hurt all these years ago. Be confident, and have the courage to take it all on, once and for all. You will come out of it feeling as if you have a new lease on life. It will be as if the weight of the world is lifted off your shoulders. It will mean a fresh start for you, and it will open you up in ways you can't even begin to understand. There is a strong female presence who will help you through this. She is very sensible and emotionally in control. It could be your mother, or another female in your life who is very nurturing and protective of you. Listen to her. She knows what she's talking about! She will help you more than you can possibly imagine.
Column G - The outcome and long term prospects
Ten of Pentacles
Seven of Wands
Page of Wands
Family will be your main focus. You may even start to consider starting a family of your own. You may also find yourself the recipient of an inheritance. If you do everything that has been told in the other cards, you'll find yourself coping with life very well, and although it won't always be easy (it never is) you're going to recognize how strong you are and what you are capable of doing when it needs to be done. Again, I'm am seeing something to do with teaching or education for you...You are going to receive some very good news, and it has something to do with a creative venture you are considering. Romantically, all will be well...Lots of passion, lots of love and an amazing sex life!
