The Horseshoe Tarot Reading is a very reliable spread that gives more depth than a 3 card spread, but isn’t as complicated as a spread like the Celtic Cross.
This Seven Card Tarot Reading gives you an insight in to the following areas of the question that has been asked: Past, present and future events that effect the question, your current attitude, other influences, obstacles you may face and the likely outcome.
The best way to use the Horseshoe tarot spread is to ask a specific question. Focus on the question for a few moments then deal the Tarot Cards to access your free reading.
Past Events - Four of Swords (reversed)
In general, the Four of Swords card in reverse is an indication that you may feel mentally and physically drained, due to a relationship that's become strained to breaking point. The longer you allow this person to use and manipulate you, the worse things will get for your health; so you need to find the courage to end this relationship. You will go through a period of isolation as the people closest to you decide where their loyalties lie, although, your life will eventually be full of happiness after meeting a new colleague at work.
Present Events - The High Priestess
This is when you need to rely on inner knowledge and intuition more than your intellect or consciousness. Pay careful attention to what you dream. Synchronicities become very likely at this time. If the High Priestess shows up for a male reading, she will most likely be representing a female whom he highly desires; but who is currently unattainable.
Immediate Future - King of Pentacles (reversed)
The King of Pentacles card reversed gives warning that you must start living your live more responsibly. You have important obligations that you are ignoring. If you carry on to shirk your responsibilities it will only lead to feelings of sadness and regret. Showing maturity around others will allow your life to turn around for the better. Important people will begin to trust you and treat you with more respect - presenting you with rewarding opportunities. You have to grow up eventually, so start doing it now.
The Significator (You) - The Hierophant
Receiving the Hierophant card is a sign that you must be more confident with your traditional beliefs - no matter how much certain individuals will try to convince you otherwise. If you're currently thinking about starting a new project, then use the skills that you already have and look into your past, as what has worked well before will work equally well now. If you feel as if you need advice, seek it from someone with whom you have no connection, as they'll clear your mind of the negative thoughts implanted by people who want to trick you.
Other Influences - Ace of Cups (reversed)
The Ace of Cups in reverse can be quite a negative card. Your mind, body and soul is in need of a serious recharge. Some people believe that their cup is half empty; you on the other hand believe that your cup is completely empty, all of the time. Self-esteem is at its lowest point and you feel as if you have no answers to your questions. Now is the ideal time to do new things that will take you out of your comfort zone. This will make you see that changing superficial problems will only provide a short-term fix.
Obstacles You May Face - Temperance
The Temperance card indicates everything in moderation. If you're in a relationship and you feel that it's not working, there could be an obvious reason as to why. You're giving too much of yourself and not getting enough in return. Learn to balance your emotions. Try and become a more confident person - someone who is happy in their own skin. Look for something new that will excite you, reinvigorate you, and make you spiritually and emotionally happy. A new project involving education could be just what you're looking for.
The Likely Outcome - The Devil
The Devil card implies temptation and distraction all around you. You have a powerful personality and the ability to achieve whatever you want. The sky literally is the limit. The only danger that you face is losing time because of indecision. Be aware of someone who'll enter your life with exciting, but false, promises, as this person will ultimately betray you. Learning to control your urges is important at this stage of your life. Allowing yourself to be tempted by so many things will only lead to feelings of emptiness and guilt.
