The Astrological Layout
The Astrological Tarot Layout is based on houses of astrology. This complicated layout takes several steps to understand.
The first step is to interpret the card for each individual position in the layout.
The second step involves further examination of the main axes. Positions 1 & 7 show the relationship theme, #1 representing you, #7 your partner. Positions 4 & 10 indicate motion. #4 shows where you are, and #10 shows what you are moving towards.
The third step involves breaking down the chart into triads according to their house elements.
Positions 1, 5, & 9 represent the Fire triad, which shows about temperment and personal development.
Positions 2, 6, & 10 represent the Earth triad, which is concerned with materialism, money, and work.
Positions 3, 7, & 11 represent the Air triad, which has to do with thoughts, ideas, and connections with other people.
Positions 4, 8, & 12 represent the Water triad, which is the realm of emotions, moods, intuition, and yearnings.
Further, you may connect other patterns and correlations between certain numbers. Certain numbers such as the set of 5, 7, & 8 often speak about a particular theme.
Your Astrological Reading
1: Basic Mood
Wealth increases like a river feeding the ocean. This sign is especially good for works involving water, however marriage or rituals involving fire are not favored.
The Double Blank is perhaps the grandest of dominoes. This domino often symbolizes a major change. It is the domino of fate, destiny, providence, and karma. Several new paths will open for you, and you are spiritually and intellectually ready to take them on. However, if this domino is drawn in a single-domino reading, it simply means to ask the question again at a later time.
3: Mundane Life
The mind is clear like a bright lamp that dispells darkness. You are at a stage in which the potential for personal growth is almost unlimited. Follow your inner light, and you will know what is right for you and those around you. Allow no obstacles or faults to hinder your actions.
The time is at hand to pursue new ventures. Your wishes will be accomplished, exceeding all expectations. The study of logic will bear tremendous fruit, as would diligent meditation upon your special deity or spirit guide. Partnerships are extremely well-favored. Opportunities may seem too good to be true, but hear them out fully before ruling anything out.
5: Fun Things
If you work steadily and carefully, the results will be good. Avoid fickle thoughts which dissipate mental energies. Travel and giving will be beneficial. Offerings to natural spirits such as ancestors and trees is beneficial, and performance of spiritual practices will have a hightened effect if not performed at their regular location.
You now have great potential for growth. It is recommended that you take advantage of this time by exploring every avenue available for you to grow, whether spiritually or materially.
Now is a time to strengthen your family ties. You may even want to consider having a child. Your family life should take precedence. Works involving spiritual communication with ancestors will be tremendously beneficial.
8: Hidden Aspects
The sign of the Golden Lotus or "the unploughed harvest" indicates success in your aims. It may take a little time, but things will get better and better if you address your spiritual self now. You may even want to consider mentoring someone; share your experience and open your heart to those who need guidance.
9: Higher Views
Your world is about to become more harmonious. All the pieces will come together, and personal power will take form, leading to a hightened level of confidence. However, for this to occur you must be open to change and embrace new ideas.
New unions and the strengthening of established unions are just around the corner. These unions may be secular and/or spiritual, and will prove successful. Be open to change, but do not abandon your values. Works of virtue and power are favored by this sign. Fire activities are highly favored and increase happiness much, but works involving water, earth, and fixed objects are not at all favorable, even bad.
That which has confused you will soon become clear. Your ability to think lucidly is reaching its zenith. Solutions to lingering problems will soon be obvious to you, and you may question how it was possible that you did not see this before.
12: Hopes and Fears
You now have the opportunity for material gain. New ventures are on the horizon. You must make a decision which of these new ventures best suits your ambitions for the future.
