June 8, 2009

Twelve cards are used for The Horoscope Spread as well as one signicator card.

Each card will represent one of the 12 houses in astrology. Every house (and card) will correlate to a different area of life – when reading Tarot cards in this spread; they will be interpreted in this context.

Card 1: The First House

Ruling Sign: Aries

The Self

This position describes you, how you are feeling and thinking; it can show how you normally work with challenges.

Card 2: The Second House

Ruling Sign: Taurus

Money and material goods

This house represents finance and other material things as well as our feelings and beliefs about them. Whatever is here refers to the current financial situation in addition to how our thoughts have influenced it. If Swords or Cups are present in this position, the information will concern beliefs or thoughts. If Wands or Coins appear, the information will refer to the actual situation.

Card 3: The Third House

Ruling Sign: Gemini

Communication and ideas

Whatever falls in this position will rule all forms of communication, from physical visits, to emails, phone calls and letters. Travel is also indicated but only short journeys and trips, weekends away and work travel. There is a tremendous amount of energy connected with this house, with information and mental energy flowing rapidly. This house can refer to how one communicates as well as news.

Card 4: The Fourth House

Ruling Sign: Cancer

The Home and Hearth

This position is the physical home as well as the emotional home of family and friends. The bricks and mortar can be described as well as the emotional security it provides. Buying and selling a new home, moving and large financial matters are indicated.

Card 5: The Fifth House

Ruling Sign: Leo

Romance, art and pleasure

This position controls love, pleasure and creativity. Many Tarot cards that rule romance also indicate creativity so this card must be looked at carefully. Check position 7, Partnerships as well as position 10, Career, for additional help in interpreting these Tarot cards.

Card 6: The Sixth House

Ruling Sign: Virgo

Health and Work

This position relates to daily work as well as all health issues. Health can connect to every level: mental, physical, psychic and emotional. Coins card in this position usually indicate work while a Wands card usually refers to a spiritual health issue. The work mentioned here is day-to-day and doesn’t refer to your “true” work or calling.

Card 7: The Seventh House

Ruling Sign: Libra


In this house, the Tarot card will refer to all partnerships including lovers or spouses, friends, family and colleagues. The card can refer to the querent themselves or the querent’s feelings towards others. This position can also refer to business partnerships as well as romantic ones. Position 5 should be checked again to see whether pleasures or blocks are indicated – if it is favorable while position 7 is challenged, this will likely refer to creative issues.

Card 8: The Eighth House

Ruling Sign: Scorpio

Death, money and sex
