The Double 5 Tarot spread
Whats happening now?
To the left you see two cards: the 4 of Cups and the Hierophant. The 4 of Cups tells me that you are upset and your mood is very low.
The Hierophant shows that you have a basic support in life and I know that this is true. Be grateful for this support!
What do you expect or want?
To the right you see the Lovers card and the King of Pentacles. These cards reveal to me your dream: you want to have money and a woman whom you will love.
To be realized: The Prince of Swords (in the lower left) shows me that something has happened suddenly and you are experiencing turbulence.
But know that the Prince of Swords comes suddenly and brings chaos to your life only for a while. He dissapears fast too. You will be okay very soon and your mood will improve.
Above the Prince of Swords is the Emperor card. This card gives its advice to you: be strong and take charge of your thoughts and feelings. You are in charge of them. They are not in charge of you.
Your nearest future (1-3 months from now):
You will worry about the future (9 of Swords + 3 of Wands + King of Cups) in the nearest months, but the 9 of Swords do not touch the womans head (the imagery of the card is such). There is an important message given to you by the 9 of Swords: don’t worry about the future!
At the same time the Death card of the Major Arcana is showing us both that a situation in your life is coming to an end. This could mean that a period of stagnation is finally coming to an end.
Your future 6 months ahead from now:
The Major Arcana card The Wheel of Fortune right after the Death card shows that life will change after 6 months. A new life will begin unfolding (Princess of Cups) and partially replace the stress and dissapointments of the past (5 of Cups).
A new avenue of income will come into your life and it is your task to recognise this opportunity. But again, the money that will come to you will be small money. The Ace of Pentacles always indicates a birth of a new avenue of income.
Your future 1 year ahead from now:
The Major Arcana card The Tower brings great changes with it. It will be turbulent and chaotic for a while. Old life will end! New ways of living are coming to you.
The Minor Arcana cards 6 of Wands + 4 of Pentacles + 10 of Cups mean the following:
Money will be low in amounts and you have to be careful not to overspend. At the same time you will have a strong desire to be loved and seen.
And The Tower card in combination with these cards can indicate that a big change is coming into your love life. But
I don’t see the 2 of Cups in this position. I don’t see the Lovers card in this position either! These two cards usually mean love coming into our lives. So, I cannot see for sure that you will meet your love partner.
What is best to do?
These 4 cards at the bottom give their advice to you: (5 of Wands = no job) + (Princess of Swords = tension & worry) + (Queen of Wands = be creative and sell your creativity) + (The Moon = listen to your intuition).
Act upon your dreams and desires and move forward in life! Create your destiny! Is life giving you lemons? Make lemonade and sell it to people!
The expanded Celtic Cross
What is happening right now?
The 9 of Wands tells that your efforts have been fruitless. Lots of effort, but no rewards. The combination of 9 of Wands with Death means that something has happened suddenly and something has suddenly also ended. You probably know yourself!
What bothers you?
4 of Pentacles in this position means lack of money. When will change come? This wish for a positive change is indicated by the Judgement card from the Major Arcana.
What occupies your thoughts?
The two cards in the upper part of this picture and right above the 9 of Wands and the Death card are the 2 of Cups and the Justice card from the Major Arcana.
2 of Cups = a love relationship; Justice = you have to bring yourself into balance!
Princess of Cups = hopes for new feelings; The Sun = riding on hope like a child
Your immidiate future:
Work related change is indicated by the King of Wands (work, employer, self-employment, etc) and the Wheel of Fortune (change).
The things that you have to realize are:
Some event came into your life suddenly and your desires are holding you like a slave in their grip. You are free to release that which makes you feel bad.
Your future 1-3 months from now:
Princess of Pentacles = money coming to you in small amounts; Princess of Swords = you won’t be able to relax with regard to finances; Princess of Wands = work related information coming to you (perhaps from employers).
And the Strength card from the Major Arcana in combination with the above mentioned cards means: you have to be strong despite all the setbacks!
Your surrounding is in the card: the 4 of Wands (4 = stability). Its stable! Be thankful for your surroundings and the people in your life.
Your hopes and fears:
9 of Pentacles above the 4 of Wands show your desire for an abundant life. Your fears are connected to the presence of abundance in your life.
Your future 6 months from now:
3 of Swords = dissapointment;
6 of Swords = a wish to move towards a better situation in life;
5 of Swords = the stress of uncertainty (5 = stuck in the middle);
Emperor of the Major Arcana = you decide if you want to move away from uncertainty and start creating your own destiny
I see a warning in these cards. 9 of Swords = you will worry out of habit, but the cards warn you not to worry, because worry will ruin your health.
7 of Cups = lots of choices, but cannot decide what to choose (maybe you will try to find some profession)
Prince of Wands = sudden change
The Fool = some unexpected event (don’t stumble!)
Stop the worry before it is too late! The quality of your health depends upon your mental and emotional conditions.
The King of Cups is sitting in emotional discomfort and that is perhaps your condition today. Give birth to a new idea, form a dream out of this idea and follow your dream.
The Queen of Swords shows you that you have to be very tough and resilient. Only then will you win the game of life (the World card of the Major Arcana).
